Permit Refund Policy

Parking and Transportation Services (PATS) Parking Permit Refund Policy

Full refunds will be issued for semester and annual parking permits when the refund is requested within fourteen (14) calendar days from the date of purchase, or for students, up to fourteen (14) days after the first day of the semester for which the permit is purchased. To receive the refund, the permit must be returned to PATS^. Refund requests received after fourteen (14) calendar days are pro-rated based on a fee schedule. Refunds will not be issued after the end of the fee schedule date.

Permits ordered online, returned as undeliverable by USPS, and not picked up within fourteen (14) calendar days after contact by PATS^, will be charged a processing fee as outlined in the rates section of the Parking General Guidelines (USF4.0010).

No refunds will be issued on pre-tax payroll deduction.

No refund will be issued on metered, daily and special events permits.

USF has every intention of resuming more on-campus operations in the fall. Our hope is that, with the support of the mitigation measures we will implement, we’ll be able to continue in-person activities throughout the fall. However, we have to prepare for a range of possible scenarios and develop contingency plans if we have to scale back operations due to COVID-19. Our contingency plans give us the flexibility to allow our students to continue taking courses and accessing services online to keep them on a path to timely graduation without providing refunds.

^ PATS will contact permit holder either by phone or email with contact information provided to us.
