Parking Fee and Disabled Parking
See smccd.edu/publicsafety/parkingregulations.php for additional information on Parking and Traffic Regulations.
All persons driving motor vehicles (except motorcycles) onto campus and utilizing the parking facilities during regular class hours (Monday-Friday; 7 am -10 pm), including final examinations, are required to obtain and properly display a parking permit. Parking permits are not required in student lots on weekends or holidays. A parking permit is not required for motorists riding motorcycles and parking must be in designated Motorcycle Parking areas. A parking permit is not a guarantee of a parking space.
A grace period allowing for the purchase of permits will be in effect during the first two weeks of the spring and fall semesters, and the first week of the summer session. The grace period pertains only to student parking lots, with all other parking regulations enforced at all times in all parking lots.
Student parking permits are available for $58 each for Fall semester and Spring semester; $29 for the Summer session; and $106 for a two-term permit (Fall and Spring). Semester parking permits are valid at all three campuses of the District (Cañada College, College of San Mateo, and Skyline College.) For students who qualify for the California College Promise Grant fee waiver, parking permit fees are: $30 for Fall or Spring semesters, $25 for Summer, and $60 for two-term permit. Parking permit fees are nonrefundable unless an action of the College (e.g., cancellation of all of the student’s classes) prevents the student from attending. Lost and stolen parking permits are nonrefundable.
Parking permits are available for purchase online (via WebSMART) during registration and throughout the term. All permits are mailed to the address specified on the order. Permits are transferable from vehicle to vehicle.
Students may purchase permits in person at each College on designated Parking Permit computer terminals only.
Daily parking permits are available for purchase for $3 each from permit dispensers at each College. (For the location of the parking lots, please refer to campus maps.) Daily parking permits are valid in all lots where, and when, students are authorized to park. These permits must be displayed face-up on the dashboard.
Disabled Parking Spaces painted blue and marked with the disabled logo are reserved for those persons with a California disabled placard or license plate. Students with temporary disabilities who do not have a placard may receive special parking consideration by contacting the College Disability Resource Center (DRC) office. Special permits must be displayed as noted on the permit.
