Obtaining an Employee Parking Permit

Student affairs parking renewals


Renewals for 2019-20 Employee parking permits are now available online*. Please remember, you are required to verify and ensure that your vehicle plate numbers are added to your permit to park on campus. You will need the license plate number, make, model, color and year of your vehicle(s). It is important that you update your plate number for our enforcement software that will utilize License Plate Recognition (LPR). Your plate number will eventually serve as your permit.

Employee permits for the coming year will again be issued in the form of repositionable decals, to be placed in the left front (driver’s side) windshield of your vehicle. For those who drive an alternate vehicle, these decals may be moved from vehicle to vehicle for up to 3,000 re-sticks.

Permits will be mailed starting the week of June 10, 2019 to the shipping address that you provide.

Permits will not be held for pick-up at Parking and Transportation Services and cannot be mailed to a campus office location.

Buy a Permit Now!


You must purchase a parking permit online.

You can pay for your permit in one of 2 ways:

  • For those currently enrolled in payroll deduction, select “online payroll deduction” as your payment type. If you do not want to participate in the pre-tax payroll deduction program, you must fill out a new form to cancel your deduction or it will continue.
  • If you are not currently enrolled and want to enroll in payroll deduction, select “online payroll deduction” as your payment type and then go to http://www.clemson.edu/campus-life/parking/multimedia/pdf/pretaxelectionform.pdf, and print the pre-tax parking benefit election/change form and return the completed form directly to the Parking and Transportation Services office.
  • Or, pay in one lump sum using Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express.


If you are currently enrolled in our LEV or EV program, LEV and EV permits are not available online.  Please review the email that was sent to you and DO NOT order a permit online unless you no longer want to participate in our LEV or EV program. 

All past-due citations must be paid before purchasing a parking permit.

Take advantage of our discounted annual $50 Park-N-Ride permit that is also available on line. However, if you currently have an employee permit and are enrolled in payroll deduction, you will need to complete a new payroll deduction form for this option.

Notice to Users of Disability Access Parking Permits:

Anyone who displays a state-issued disability parking permit in order to park on the campus of Clemson University is required to register the permit with the Parking Services office prior to use on campus. Students, faculty, staff and vendors are required to purchase and display a campus parking permit, even when displaying a disability access parking permit. The request to register the state-issued permits prior to use is expected to reduce the incident of unauthorized use, thereby increasing access to disability access parking space by legitimate users. Please contact the office in person, by phone at 864-656-2270 or email us at parking@clemson.edu to register your ADA permit.
