Parking permits will not be issued until all forms have been completed, processed, and approved.

What is the Volunteer Card?

A “Volunteer Card” is issued when the permit is picked up. This card provides the volunteer a reminder that they need to submit their volunteer hours to Human Resources to fulfill their arrangement as a volunteer. 

Statement on card:

This assignment has been made in consideration of your voluntary status; please submit hours volunteered to Human Resources. This parking assignment is auditable; hours submitted will be used to support the validity of this arrangement.
