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.
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 decal or temporary parking permit, which is available from any Security Office on each of the campuses.
EFSC students and non-EFSC students will be charged an annual fee ($40, plus tax) for the parking permit if purchased in Fall Term, with the decal valid for Fall, Spring and Summer Terms. After Fall Term, a Spring/Summer Decal is available for $20 (plus tax) when purchased in either Spring or Summer Term. 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.
