The campus is regulated by New York State Vehicle and Traffic Laws; therefore, drivers are subject to standard traffic and parking regulations, and outstanding parking tickets are entered into the New York State scofflaw system. Vehicles are subject to booting or towing for unpaid parking summonses and illegal parking; in such cases, the owner/driver of the vehicle is responsible for booting and towing fees. Students with outstanding fines will be flagged. Fines must be paid in full and the flag removed in order to register in the future, obtain transcripts, or receive graduation diplomas.Traffic Appeals | Parking Violations & Fines | Scheduled Hearing Dates 2014-2015
