Safety Officers are instructed to issue citations based upon the regulations, copies of which are available at the District Safety Offices or by clicking the link above. They are not authorized to grant any privileges deviating from the regulations.
Vehicles may be issued citations for illegal parking, failure to display a current sticker, or any other violation of parking and traffic regulations.

Contesting a Citation
Any person who feels a citation was issued in error may contest the citation within 21 days of issuance or 14 days from the delinquent notice. You may contest online at: www.paymycite.com/RSCCD. According to California law, non-payment of citations will result in a registration hold at DMV, and renewal of vehicle registration is contingent upon compliance. All vehicles parking on campus must display a current permit available in the student Business office. Students driving vehicles without a permit should purchase a day parking pass at the dispensing machine located in the parking lots.
Motorcycles, Mopeds, Bicycles
No permit is required if parked in designated area. Use of vehicular stall requires a permit. Once purchased, refunds for parking permits, are made only if classes are dropped during the first two weeks. Please contact the Business Office.
All vehicles parked on our campuses (except for 30 minute visitor parking) must display a valid parking permit. There are two options, either purchase a semester parking permit, currently $30, at the Student Business office or visitors can purchase a $2 daily parking permit which allows parking in any student parking lot for that day. Failure to display or purchase a parking permit may result in a citation being issued.
Parking Permit Replacement
If a vehicle is sold or change of ownership occurs, the permit should be removed and placed in the new vehicle. Lost or stolen permits can only be replaced by purchasing a new permit at the full price.
Temporary Parking Permits
Students who hold a permit, but must drive a different car to the campus, may, with proper I.D., obtain a one-day permits at the SCC Safety Office U-100 or the Admissions Office in the E building.
Disabled Parking Areas
Several areas on campus are designated for Disabled Parking. Vehicles in these areas are required to display a (1) current RSCCD parking permit as well as (2) one of the following: District-issued disabled permit, state placard or special state license plate. Permits are available in the Disabled Student Center in E-105.
