Permit Options and Fees

All our campuses, except the Roseville Gateway Campus, require parking permits or daily passes during the week. 

Parking is free on all campuses from Friday at 4 pm until Sunday at 11 pm. Learn more about other free parking options.

The penalty for parking without a permit or daily pass is $35. Your vehicle may be towed away if you are illegally parked. Illegal parking includes blocking a roadway, fire access or another vehicle. Receive five or more unpaid parking citations, and your vehicle may be impounded or immobilized until you pay all penalties and fees. For more details, view Sierra College Vehicle Code 9.9 in AP 6750, which lists penalties and fees for a variety of parking and registration violations
