Appeals

The Process

If you received a parking citation you may appeal it by submitting a completed parking citation appeals form to the Parking Office within 14 calendar days from the date the citation was issued. Once submitted for review by the appeals committee the citation:

  1. All appeals must be submitted within 14 calendar days from the date the citation was issued.
  2. Once submitted for review, the citation will be put on hold.  This means the fine amount due will not increase nor will any further action be taken for collection until it has been reviewed by the appeals committee.
  3. Once the appeals committee has made a decision you will be notified of their decision, via the method you indicated on the appeals form.
  4. Unless your citation has been cancelled, you will have two (2) weeks from the date of the appeals committee meeting to pay the amount due before further action is taken.
  5. Please note, the decision of the appeals committee is final and binding for the appellant and the Parking Office.

Guidelines for Appeal

  1. In your appeal only address parking related circumstances and conditions that were in existence when and where you parked and/or when the citation was issued to the vehicle.
  2. The appeals process is not a forum for complaints about parking. If you wish to file a complaint or suggestion for parking please send an email to parking@uwgb.edu.
  3. Upon purchase of your decal you received a parking brochure outlining the parking policies and regulations for UW - Green Bay. Ignorance of parking regulations is not considered a valid basis for an appeal.
  4. If you are using a medical emergency or mechanical failure as the basis for your appeal evidence of such is required (i.e. doctors' note or mechanic note/bill)
  5. You may appeal any citation, however, excuses such as those exemplified below are not considered valid and are less likely to be accepted:
    • Lack of "convenient" or legal parking spaces (including 15 min zones)
    • Only being there for a short time / only there for .. Minutes

    • Lack of funds / cannot afford citation
