Questions that Porterville College students often ask... and the answers.
Yes, if you plan to park on a campus parking lot a parking permit is required every semester. However, if you park on the street, a parking permit is not required. Also, if you have a valid handicapped permit issued in your name, you will not need to purchase a permit.
Tickets are usually issued after the second week of instruction. However, you should purchase your parking permit prior to the start of the term to avoid the potential of getting a ticket.
You can purchase a parking permit 24 hours after completing your registration on the web at www.permitsales.net/PortervilleCollege If paying by credit or debit card, your payment must be made online. If paying by cash, check or through a third party agency/organization, you still must request your permit online and then visit the Admissions and Records or Business Office in the Academic Center to pay.
A parking permit costs $20 per term and $10 during the summer session.
