Vehicle Regulations

It is mandatory that your vehicle be registered each year with the Department of Security and Police. You will be issued a decal with a registration number to affix to your vehicle.

Once you have registered, you will pick-up your decal in the matriculation line or the Campus Security Office from Norma Kernodle when you arrive on campus. If there are any problems with the registration process, follow the directions in the online process or see Norma Kernodle in the Campus Security Office.
