Parking Permit Refunds
Individuals who have an active prepaid parking permit with unused months will receive a refund from UCI Transportation on a prorated basis. You do not need to do anything to receive a partial refund of your parking permit as we will take care of this centrally. This process may take 10-15 business days to complete. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to serve the campus community.
