the fee to have it replaced. Recovered lost or stolen decals should be
returned to the University Police immediately.

decal. There is a fee for a replacement decal. Unless the University Police is presented with evidence that such
decal has been removed, the full parking fee will be charged.
Decals are non-transferrable.

writing to the University Police. The applicant must return the decal to
the University Police. If a person has paid for the full year and leaves

If a person leaves during the fall semester, but before the spring
semester begins, the spring portion of the fee will be refunded.
Registration fees are not refundable.
