Appeals



 

How the process works.

No citation older than twenty eight days may be appealed and you must have your copy of the ticket. The person with the traffic violation cannot be represented by an attorney or use witnesses to state his/her case.

First parking ticket: Either pay in Belmont Central or follow procedure below:

  • Ticket will be reduced to a warning by taking a test regarding the understanding of Belmont's traffic rules and regulations. You must notify the Office of Campus Security by e-mail at citation@belmont.edu if you wish to take the test and your name, BUID number, and ticket number must be included in the body of the e-mail. This e-mail should have "Parking Test" in the subject line. You will be notified if you are eligible and given instructions on how to complete it. If you do not have access to e-mail, you must address this issue with the Administrative Captain for the Office of Campus Security.

NOTE: Parking Test may only be taken once per academic year.

This process is not available if ticketed for parking in a handicapped space, parking in fire lane, or parking in guest spot. (See Second appeal below.)
