Spring Semester Employee Permits for Graduate Student Assistants and Graduate Research Assistants

Supplemental parking passes are available for Graduate Student Assistants and Graduate Research Assistants with essential teaching duties or essential continuing research over the spring semester with written request from faculty.

Due to the surplus of employee parking and the lack of campus transportation over the Spring semester due to E-Learning, students with a valid student parking permit may obtain a temporary parking pass allowing them to park in designated green spaces from Monday, March 23 to Friday, May 1. Students approved for this pass will receive an additional permit that must be displayed on the dash in addition to a valid student parking permit on the vehicle.


Based on current construction projects, parking lots available for assignment are E-01, E-02, E-03, E-04, E-21, Calhoun Drive or Williamson Rd.


Applications are being accepted starting Monday, March 23 through Friday, March 27.  If approved, the supplemental permit will be emailed.


To obtain such a pass, the requesting student must scan and email all of the following information to Parking and Transportation Services at Parking@clemson.edu no later than Friday, March 27.

  1. Written certification from the faculty advisor on departmental letterhead that the student is performing research for them through May 1. This letter shall include:
    • Name of the student and XID number,
    • Work location and schedule,
    • Reason why this request is essential, and
  2. Make, model, and license plate of the student’s vehicle. (Note: supplemental permit limited to one vehicle.)

All requests will be reviewed on a case by case basis and parking assignments are based on availability. All supplemental passes will be emailed by Parking and Transportation Services within two business days of the request.


The pass MUST be displayed on the vehicle’s dashboard in conjunction with a valid university student parking permit on the vehicle.
