Pay a UW Tacoma Parking Citation

Main page content

Parking fines for all UW Tacoma parking lots can be paid for here.

 

Fines must be paid within 20 calendar days from the notice date.

 

Late Fees

Late payment fees will not be assessed as long as the payment is received within 20 calendar days from the notice date. If payment is not received by the due date, a $10 late fee is added. To pay the balance with a late fee online, proceed to the payment button below, where you will be redirected to the online payment website.

Note: Late payment fees will not be assessed as long as the payment is received within 20 calendar days from the notice date, or if the citation is in “Appeals/Petitioned” status. 

Accounts in Collections

If the parking fine you received has gone to collections, you have the option of paying the collection agency directly. Their contact information is on the letter you received. Or you can pay the balance here, using this online payment tool. After your payment is processed, we will notify the collection agency that you paid us directly. Your collection notice will then be cancelled. 

To pay the balance in collections directly to UW Tacoma, proceed to the payment button below, where you will be redirected to the online payment website.

*Holds on student accounts will not be removed until the balances on all of your open citations are paid in full. Holds are not automatically removed when you make your payment. After you make your online payment, you must contact the Cashier's Office where someone will verify that your payment processed successfully. Once confirmed, your hold will be removed. The Cashier's Office can be reached by email: uwtcash@uw.edu or phone: 253-692-4669. The Cashier's Office is closed on weekends and holidays.  Payment verification will occur during the business hours listed on the Cashier's homepage.

Appealed Citation Fines

If you have filed an appeal and received a fine reduction, you can proceed to the payment button below, where you will be redirected to the online payment website. All questions about appeals should be sent to uwtcita@uw.edu.

Processing Timeline

  •  Payment is processed immediately.
  • The UW Tacoma Finance Office will do its best to apply the payment to the appropriate citation record and update its status to Paid. It is your responsibility to provide the correct citation reference number and license plate number. If you no longer have the citation reference number, email uwtcash@uw.edu to request a list of your unpaid parking citations. You will need to provide your license plate number, your name, and the approximate date of your citation.

Terms and Conditions

  • All payments successfully processed are non refundable.
  • Payments will be applied based on the citation reference number and vehicle license plate number provided by the customer during checkout.  If this information is incorrect and cannot be verified by the university, a full refund will be processed within three (3) business days. If this occurs and it results in the citation not being paid by the due date, the registered owner of the vehicle will be responsible for any additional late and/or collection agency fees that are accrued.
