I'm a student. What are my payment options?
Due to Institute policy, all student fees, including parking permits, must be transferred to the Bursar's Office. All student permit payments are made through the Bursar’s Office only. Visit www.bursar.gatech.edu for more information.
Citations can be paid via cash, check, credit or debit only.
I am an employee. What are my payment options?
Faculty and staff may pay for permits and citations via cash, check, credit or debit only. Full-time employees can pay for parking permits via pre-tax payroll deduction.
Can I pay using coins?
According to Georgia Tech’s coinage policy, departments are no longer able to accept more than $25.00 at a time in rolled coins or $10.00 of loose coins for payments at any of our cash windows (Bursar’s Office, Parking Office, Ticket Window, etc.). Additionally, any payments in excess of $1.00 in loose coinage must be counted first by the paying customer in front of the receiving Georgia Tech employee in order to minimize processing time. This practice minimizes our expenses that would have to be absorbed by tuition and/or other budgetary sources.
What if I don't agree to take the pre-tax payroll deduction?
Any employee who chooses to not participate in payroll deduction will have to pay for their permit with a check, credit card or cash in the Parking and Transportation office. You will receive an e-mail invoice in July. If payment is not received on or before the last business day in August, your permit will be returned to inventory.
How does payroll deduction work?
Pre-tax payroll deduction means the parking permit expense is deducted from your gross salary before state and federal taxes are calculated. The actual amount saved by using pre-tax payroll deduction is dependent on your federal and state tax margin. For most employees, this represents an out-of-pocket savings in excess of 30%. Permit payments will be made via pre-tax payroll deductions biweekly or monthly between August and May depending on your pay schedule.
I will only need my permit for half the year. Can I get a refund?
Permits are refundable until March 31 and are prorated on a weekly basis. Customers should return the permit to the Parking & Transportation office.
