Vehicle Rules & Regulations

Parking Decals

All students who plan to operate a vehicle on NE Campus must register the vehicle and display a valid Northeast decal. The registration fee is $30.00 per vehicle, per year. NEMCC decal expires on August 1 of each year. Decals may be purchased in the Housing Office of Ramsey Hall during campus office hours.

Decals must be permanently affixed to the driver’s side back window. In case of tinted window or convertible, decal should be placed on the driver’s side front windshield.

If a registered vehicle is sold, traded, or disposed of, it is the responsibility of the individual who registered the vehicle to remove the decal and register the replacement vehicle. The original decal may be returned to the Office of Housing for a replacement decal.  If the student cannot bring the decal in for a replacement, a fee of $30 will apply.

Providing false vehicle registration information or displaying an invalid decal will result in disciplinary action.

Process for registering a Handicapped Parking Decal will be given upon request.

Motor vehicle rules and regulations will be given to students when decals are purchased. Students are responsible for reviewing and following all motor vehicle rules and regulations.

Temporary parking permits may be obtained for a period of five consecutive school days with a maximum of three issued per semester. These permits are available free of charge for those students who have purchased a permanent decal and have a need to drive a non-registered vehicle to the NEMCC Campus.
