Eastern Florida State College Parking Procedures & Instructions

The parking procedure for Eastern Florida State College was developed in accordance with regulations set forth by Florida Administrative Code and the Eastern Florida State College Administration and Board of Trustees. History: On July 1, 2011, the College Administration, which was then known as Brevard Community College, enacted a new parking permit program and procedure. As a result, all parking permits prior issued prior to the July 1, 2011 date are null and void.

Any person in control of a motor vehicle (including motorcycle, scooter or moped) who wishes to park or leave said vehicle standing on campus is subject to the provisions outlined herein. Vehicles parked on the campus of any of the Eastern Florida State College properties must display a valid parking permit or temporary parking permit, which is available from any Security Office on each of the campuses.

Students will be charged an annual fee ($40, plus $2.60 state tax) for the parking permit. Faculty, Staff and Visitors will not be charged.

General parking regulations, including lot designation and parking fee rates, are updated annually and published in the Student Handbook, Faculty Handbook, Eastern Florida website and other documents,
