Purchasing Student Parking Permits

Student parking permits are available for $53 each for the fall semester and spring semester; $26 for the summer session; and $96 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.) Parking permits for students with California Board of Governors (BOG) waivers are $30 per semester/$60 for a two-term permit ($25 for Summer). 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 of the permit. 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. There is no shipping and handling fee if you purchase your permit in person.

Affixing Student Parking Permit

Parking permits must be affixed to the inside lower left of the front windshield. Plastic permit hangers allowing the permit to be displayed on the interior rear view mirror are also available for purchase at each College bookstore. Whichever method you choose, you must ensure the permit is visible in its ENTIRETY at all times. It is the permit holder's responsibility to properly affix the permit in the vehicle.
