CLEVELAND – Cuyahoga Community College will implement a new parking management plan beginning this Fall Semester. The new plan, effective August 23, calls for a College-wide permit parking system. While the cost of operating the parking system at Tri-C continues to rise, fees for the current pay-on-exit plan have remained unchanged for the past 18 years. The last fee increase for parking at the College was in 1990 when it was doubled from 25 cents to 50 cents per exit.

The new plan, which has been in the works for more than two years, will utilize hangtag permits in place of the existing parking gates and coin deposit boxes located on each of the College’s campuses. Despite the change, parking rates at Tri-C will remain among the lowest of colleges and universities in Ohio.

“We are making the change now because maintaining the system that has been in place for over 40 years would require additional funds to upgrade,” said Clayton Harris, chief of police at Cuyahoga Community College. “We’ve also had several complaints about the pay-on-exit system over the years. Several studies that we’ve done have shown that many colleges and universities are using the permit system. Plus, it’s a fresh start for the new academic year.”

Students can purchase a full-semester hangtag permit for $56.25. They can pay for their hangtag permits and receive them via U.S. mail through the online registration process on My Tri-C Space. Students can also purchase hangtag permits at the Business Office.

Visitors can use the electronic Visitor Parking Meter Stations located in each visitor lot. The cost of parking in the visitor lot using this alternative will be dependent upon the amount of time a patron uses the lot on any particular visit.

All students, faculty, staff and visitors have the option of using daily scratch-off hangtag permits, which can be purchased at the Business Office at a cost of 75 cents per day. Multiple daily permits can and should be purchased in advance depending on anticipated use.

All students, faculty, staff and visitors will be expected to have their hangtag permits on August 23. Hangtag permits are valid on any College campus. For additional information, please visit https://portal.tri-c.edu/parking/default.htm.
