When are parking permits required on campus?
Parking permits are required to park at CCS facilities between the hours of 6:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday through

loading/unloading zones or fire lanes) may be towed at owner/driver expense.
Vehicles shall not park at CCS facilities without a valid parking permit issued pursuant to WAC

be established by the board of trustees of Community Colleges of Spokane and shall be published. Students parking at CCS

at both the SCC and the SFCC campuses.
