Students, faculty and staff who have registered their vehicle in the Georgia State University Parking system pay an entry fee of $4.50 ($5.00 effective 7/1/15) for parking at available, on campus decks and lots. The Budget Card permit is a pre-paid parking option that provides discounted parking at the rate of $3.50 per entry before 4:00 p.m., and reduced further to $2.25 ($2.50 effective 7/1/15) per entry after 4:00 p.m.
Budget Cards may be obtained from the customer service area located on the second floor of the University Bookstore Building during posted business hours, Monday through Friday.
A minimum of $7.00 and up to $192.50 can be pre-paid onto the Budget Card with payment by PantherCash, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, check, or cash. Additional pre-paid parks can be added at any time during regular customer service hours at the customer service area or online at ParkingWeb. Pre-paid parks added to Budget Cards expire after 12 months with no parking activity and without any further notice.
Should any student, faculty or staff member, determine the Budget Card is no longer needed, they may return their assigned Budget Card to the Auxiliary and Support Services customer service counter and any unexpired, pre-paid parks remaining on the Budget Card will be refunded. Pre-paid parks on Budget Cards remain active for up to 12 months from last date of use and refunds may be requested at any time within that 12 month period. After 12 months with no parking activity, the pre-paid parks expire and the Budget Card balance returns to zero, with refunds no longer provided.
Budget Cards are to be returned to Auxiliary and Support Services upon termination of enrollment or employment, to avoid a $25 fee.
Students parking with a Budget Card can park at S, K, N, and M on a space available basis, and G deck after 4:00 p.m.
Faculty and Staff parking with a Budget Card are assigned to parking locations based on proximity and availability.
