2017-2018 Parking Permits are available online through CampusConnection, in the Campus Police office in the Hektner Student Center and in Room 183H at the Fargo campus.
A current and valid NDSCS parking permit is required and must be appropriately displayed on all vehicles parked anywhere on the Wahpeton and Fargo NDSCS campuses. Student permits must be renewed at the beginning of each school year.
The costs for parking permits are:
Parking privileges may be extended to individuals by the NDSCS Police office under special circumstances. The user of such a parking permit is subject to the express limitations indicated on the permit. Special permits will be valid only during the times and in the areas designated in writing on the permit at the time of issuance. No unauthorized individuals or departments may grant special parking privileges. Under emergency conditions, the NDSCS Police Supervisor shall have authority to assign parking privileges as needed.
Parking permits are the property of NDSCS and may be invalidated, revoked, canceled or recalled. The use of a parking permit is limited to the person who purchases the permit. Permits are not transferable except that they may be used for purposes of implementing ride-sharing programs.
An invalid permit may be one of several things: lost, stolen, canceled or expired permits, plates or placards. These permits may be confiscated or obliterated, by any reasonable method, by any member of the NDSCS Police Department. Any person who knowingly possess a lost, stolen, canceled or altered permit, plate or placard for the purpose of fraudulently obtaining parking privileges on the NDSCS campus may be subject to appropriate campus administrative action and/or to penalties set forth in the appropriate section of the North Dakota Century and Vehicle Codes. This may result in a fine in the amount of $150.
Overnight parking on 5th Street (during winter restrictions), Main Oval, East Oval and areas designated by signs is prohibited. Vehicles parked in yellow zones, reserved parking spaces and tow zones is prohibited. Vehicles in violation of this rule are subject to ticket and towing without prior notice. Tickets will be $20.
The City of Wahpeton has a Snow Removal Ordinance that takes effect when the first significant snow fall arrives. This is then unabated until the accumulation is insignificant. The ordinance states NO PARKING on any streets, avenues or city lots between the hours of 2-6 a.m. When the ordinance goes into effect, the city will broadcast this on TV and radio stations and alert local newspapers.
A visitor permit is required for all vehicles parked on campus during the college business day. Permits must be properly displayed on the rearview mirror so that permit numbers and expiration dates are clearly visible to Parking Enforcement officers. Visitor permits are valid in all parking lots on campus and visitor parking areas designated by signs. To void a visitor parking citation, the citation along with the name of the visitor and the person forwarding the ticket must be forwarded to the NDSCS Police Department. Only the NDSCS Police Department has the authority to void parking tickets.
Any violation of this code will result in a $20 fine for each violation, unless specified otherwise. Any violation of State Law or City ordinance will be per their individual schedule of fines.
A partial list of violations follows:
The auto boot will be applied to a vehicle after the receipt of the third unpaid parking violation. A brightly colored warning sticker will be applied to the driver side window, alerting the owner of the auto boot has been applied. If the owner has not contacted the NDSCS Police Department to have the boot removed within 3 business days, the vehicle will be towed. The owner will be responsible for paying the towing charge, impound fee and boot removal fee.
Tampering with, damaging or removing the parking boot is punishable criminally under Wahpeton City Ordinance 7-301 (Criminal Mischief).
The auto boot will be removed providing the following conditions are met: All fees are paid in full (parking fees, ticket fees and auto boot removal fee of $40) or a satisfactory payment agreement is made with the NDSCS Police Department Supervisor and NDSCS Police Department personnel are provided with the receipt showing payment in full of both fines and the auto boot removal fee.
All parking tickets must be appealed online within 10 calendar days or ticket issuance. Parking tickets may be appealed in person before the Appeals Board by appointment on Tuesdays at 1:00 p.m. at the Campus Police office in the Hektner Student Center, Room 154 or by using the online appeal form.
The appellant is informed of the hearing decision. All decisions are final and binding. If you choose to do nothing, you will receive an automatic conviction and possible denial of vehicle permit renewal.
A lost ticket, forgetfulness, parking (even momentarily) where prohibited, failure to display a permit, and/or not seeing a sign or "I didn't know" are all unacceptable grounds for an appeal. The appeal must be completed in an accurate, brief and specific manner.
Zones are located at Robertson Hall, on the Main Oval, the southwest corner of Lot No. 1, the south side of Lot No. 1 on the curb that runs east and west, on Eighth Avenue North south of Schulz Hall, and on Fifth Street west side unless marked otherwise. These areas are strictly enforced.
The NDSCS Police will provide escort services on the Wahpeton campus to and/or from vehicles, residence halls or work-study positions on campus to a student's or employee's residence hall or vehicle, upon request. The NDSCS Police Department provides this free service to students and employees whenever they may need it.
Any additions or changes to the regulations during the academic year will be sent out through all-campus email and distributed to all mailboxes. An all-campus voice mail message will also be given and any other method deemed appropriate to reach the most amount of people. Questions should be directed to the NDSCS Police Department at 701-671-2233 or ext. 3-2233, 24 hours a day.
