All motor vehicles parked on campus must display a valid Highline College parking permit or a daily parking pass. Permits are required for both day and night parking. Parking permits are not transferable with the exception of carpool permits.

If you would rather pay for parking on a daily basis, please use the new parking pay stations in the East and South Parking lots. See below for more information.

Purchasing Permits

Student Parking Permits

Apply, pay and pick up a parking permit all in one place (for carpool permits, see below). You can purchase on campus or, if you are buying a full-time permit, skip the lines and buy-online.

Buying in person:

  • Fill out the parking application. It is available at the Cashier Office (Building 6, 1st floor) or on Highline's website.
  • Bring your application and permit fee to the Cashier Office to recieve your permit. See Student Parking Fees below for the fee schedule.

Buying Online (Full-time permits only):

  • Visit the Highline Bookstore website.
  • Click "Parking Permits".
  • Fill out the Your Information section and click Add to Cart.
  • Pay with a credit card (Visa, Mastercard). Note: The $47.00 price includes a $1.00 fee for processing and shipping.
  • Choose to have your permit mailed to your home address or pick it up at the Bookstore (Building 8).


Carpool Permits

We have implemented a new and improved student carpool application process.

Effective immediately, students will be able to pay and receive a carpool permit directly at the Cashiers Office (using this form). Manual verification of class schedules at the Public Safety Office is no longer required.

Student carpool permits are limited to 250 permits per quarter and will be sold on a first-come-first-served basis.

Other Tips and Information

  • Permits are available throughout the quarter. There is no deadline for purchase.
  • Motorcylces must park in the designated areas but do not need a permit sticker.
  • Students with disabilities: If you have a current "Disabled" placard or license plate, then you will not need a Highline parking permit. You placard/license plate is sufficient for parking on campus.
