Parking Permits

Spring 2020 AVC parking permits will be valid for the 2020 summer session and 2020 fall semester. Students do not need to purchase a new parking permit for those terms.

Partial refunds of $10 are available for graduates or transferring students who are not taking courses in summer/fall 2020. Those who have withdrawn from ALL AVC courses due to reasons related to COVID-19 and who are not returning in summer/fall 2020, may also request the partial refund.

Follow the link below to the refund request form. Your request will be evaluated. The deadline to request a refund is May 31, 2020. Refund request forms will be reviewed as soon as possible and notices will be sent to your AVC email. We anticipate that those who are eligible and approved will receive refunds upon our return to normal operations this summer.
