Individuals who have received a parking citation for violation of SVSU ordinances and wish to appeal must first appeal the citation to the Parking Services Coordinator at the University Police Department no later than 10 calendar days from the issuance date of the citation. This procedure may be accomplished in person, by representative, by telephone at (989) 964-4140, or by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name, citation number, vehicle plate number and contact information.
Upon receipt of an appeal, the Parking Services Coordinator may ask for information which would substantiate the reason(s) for the appeal. The Parking Services Coordinator may discuss this information and any other related circumstances with the issuing officer and/or the Chief of University Police. The Parking Services/University Police Department is the only University department authorized to grant an appeal.
If an appeal is denied by the Parking Services Coordinator, you may pay the fine for the citation at Parking Services or the Cashier's Office. If you prefer to proceed with the judicial process of appeal to the 70th District Court, you may obtain a form to do so from the Parking Services Coordinator. The completed form must be returned to Parking Services for processing. If you decline to appeal or refuse to pay the fine within 10 calendar days, the violation will be forwarded to the 70th District Court of Saginaw County as past due. You may be responsible for an increased fine and additional court costs.
