Every vehicle parked on campus is required to be properly credentialed.  This means they display a current visitor, student, or employee parking permit. 

Open Parking.  Permits are still required during open parking.  Open Parking allows people to use the assigned, numbered parking spaces in Faculty parking lots (F-lots) as if they were general parking (G-lots).  Open Parking is defined in OC Policy 200-16 as follows;

  • Between 4:00pm and 7:30am weekdays and all weekends and holidays; and
  • From the first day of Summer Session through August 31.


Every vehicle parked on Olympic College property must have a parking permit, except visitors who are parked for less than 15 minutes.  Security officers do check, and will document the time of visitor's parking arrivals.  

You need to bring all of the following to HSS room 101 between 9am and 5pm, Monday through Friday;

  • Student ID *
  • Your class schedule ("View your schedule" on OASIS)
  • Current vehicle registration ** 
* If you need to get your student ID card, you can get that while you are here if you bring a copy of your class schedule and valid state or government issued identification.
** If your vehicle has temporary license plates, you will recieve a Temporary Student Parking pass instead of a sticker for up to 1 month.

This allows for quick identification of properly-permitted vehicles.  Different placement of the sticker can result in a "no permit" citation, as the placement of the permit is part of the permit validation.

Parking permits are good for one academic year. 

The academic year begins Fall quarter, and ends Summer quarter.  

Permits need to be renewed at the beginning of every Fall quarter, or as soon as you start during the academic year.

You must first register with the Kitsap Transit Authority and get a Carpool permit (Kitsap Rideshare program); then you can park in carpool spaces without being ticketed.

Carpool registration at (360) 373-2877 or 1-800-501-Ride or apply online at  http://www.kitsaptransit.com/rider-resources/smart-commuter

Go online to Appeal My Parking Citation, and explain why you believe that your citation is in error.  Please be courteous, as the appeal is a professional communication.  

You are allowed 1 permit for each registered vehicle per academic year. We begin issuing new parking permits at the end of each Summer quarter.

Fines can result from parking without a permit to blocking traffic. For more information, go to the list of fines for parking violations page.
