CSU Policy 4701

A registered owner or person responsible for the citations may enroll in a payment plan when they have multiple unpaid parking citations or at least owe a minimum of $200. You will only have 60 calender days from the issuance of a notice of parking violation or 10 days after an administrative hearing determination, whichever is later, to request to participate in a payment plan.  At plan enrollment, a minimum initial payment of 10% of the amount is owed, plus a $25 enrollment fee, is required. Subsequent payments will be made on a monthly basis as set by SDSU Parking & Transportation Services for the following durations, but citations may be paid in full at any time during the agreement. 

Payment Plan Duration

  • For fees beween $200 - $400, payment plans may not exceed six months.
  • For fees over $400, payment plans may not exceed nine months.

If you default on a payment plan, a subsequent payment plan will not be offered for those citations and any late fees placed in abeyance will be immediately reinstated.
