Avoid the Lines, Get Your Parking Permit Now

August 4, 2017 at 9:52 am

The 2017-2018 academic year parking decals are now available. You may register your vehicle online using the below instructions or you may stop by the USC Upstate Department of Public Safety and bring your Driver’s License, up-to-date vehicle registration and up-to-date car insurance policy. The parking brochure is available online for your convenience. Please note that you are responsible for knowing all the parking rules and regulations upon registering your vehicle.

Note: If you are a new student and have not yet attended an orientation, you will need to wait to register your vehicle until after you attend orientation.

  1. Open the following link in your Chrome browser: https://www.uscupstate.edu/the-dome/popular-links/campus-police-and-parking/parking-on-campus/vehicle-registration/
  1. Click register online here.  Do not enter your full email address, instead enter only the first portion before the @ symbol.  Example: If your email address is JDOE@uscupstate.edu, you would only enter JDOE.
  2. Enter the same password as if you were logging into your email.
  3. Once your name and address appear, click the next button.  If your address is incorrect, you can go ahead and complete the parking registration process, but you will need to contact the Records office to update your information.
  4. If you are a new student, click here to select permit location/type and select the appropriate option.  Then click here to add vehicles.  If you are a continuing student and your plate has not changed, click the add button next to your current plate (you will need to re-enter your plate). If your plate has changed, click add next to your previous plate and add new information. If the date of expiration on the decal lists a date in 2016, this will automatically update to 2017 once the semester begins.
  5. Enter plate number.
  6. Enter the state your plate is registered in.
  7. Enter the plate year which is on your registration card.
  8. Enter the vehicle year and make.
  9. Enter the vehicle body (2 door, 3 door, 4 door, etc.)
  10. Click submit. After clicking submit the site will return you to the original parking permit page. You have completed the online vehicle registration process.
  11. Pick up your parking decal at the USC Upstate Department of Public Safety

If a charge of $60 appears when registering, you may ignore this fee. You will NOT be charged. 

Note: If you are registering more than 1 vehicle, you must register the additional vehicles with the DPS.   There will be a $10 fee for each additional vehicle. We accept cash, check or money order only!

If you have any questions, please call the USC Upstate Department of Public Safety at (864) 503-7777 between the hours of 8:00am to 5:00pm Monday through Friday or email policestudent@uscupstate.edu
