Meredith College provides ample parking by decal as a privilege to its students. Please read the following policy carefully regarding the issuance and refunding of parking decals.
Parking decals are charged for the full year at the beginning of the academic year. If a student receives a decal after the start of the fall semester, charges will be applied at the time the registration is completed. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that registration is received in the Office of Campus Police in a timely manner.
In July, students may receive a decal in the mail if the registration is received in the office with a self addressed return envelope with sufficient postage by the date indicated on the form. After that date students will need to come to Campus Police to receive their decal.
Decals are issued by Campus Police. You must pay for your decal or other parking charges in the Accounting Office. The Accounting Office will accept your payment at 120 Johnson Hall during business hours or as indicated on this website: www.meredith.edu/acct/payment.htm
If you are issued a decal and do not attend the entire year, you are responsible for returning the decal to the Office of Campus Police in order to receive a refund**. A refund request will then be sent to the Accounting Office and credited to your account. If you owe no other fees a refund check will be generated. FAILURE TO RETURN YOUR DECAL within the time limits specified below WILL RESULT IN FORFEITURE OF ANY REFUND. If you are unable to remove your decal, please come to Campus Police for assistance.
**Exception: Commuter students who plan to graduate in December may receive a one-semester decal in the fall. You will not be required to return your decal.
Pro-rated charges: You may have your parking charges pro-rated based on when you leave school due to leave of absence or withdrawal. You must still return your decal. Proration is determined by THE DATE THE DECAL IS RETURNED and according to the break schedule for each semester as follows.
If decal is returned:
Prior to fall break: 25% of annual fee will be charged
First day of fall break to end of fall semester: 50% annual fee will be charged
Beginning of spring semester prior to spring break: 75% annual fee will be charged
First day of spring break to end of spring semester: 100% annual fee will be charged
The same rules apply in the converse situation where a student needs a decal during the academic year (with the exception of students who only attend summer school):
If decal is received by the student:
Prior to first day of fall break: 100% of annual fee will be charged
First day of fall break to end of fall semester, 75% annual fee will be charged
Beginning of spring semester prior to spring break: 50% annual fee will be charged
First day of spring break to end of spring semester: 25% annual fee will be charged
