How do I qualify for a Special Medical Parking Permit?

The issuance of special medical parking permits is an optional service that STCC provides for a limited number of circumstances. Community members must apply for a temporary Special Medical Parking Permit.

For community members who have a short-term, qualifying mobility issue and:

  • Do not qualify for a state-issued handicapped license plate or placard, or
  • Who may qualify for a state-issued handicapped license plate or placard but, due to the short length of time of their mobility issue, it would not be feasible to apply for state handicapped parking status.

For community members who have a long-term, qualifying mobility issue and:

  • Are awaiting a decision from the state, or
  • Had their state application rejected.

Please note:

  • The definition of a qualifying mobility issue is narrowly defined and, therefore, not all mobility issues will qualify a person for Special Medical Parking permission.
  • Those who know in advance that they will have a short-term or long-term mobility issue in the near future (such as scheduled surgery and a subsequent period of rehabilitation) are encouraged to make application to the state for handicapped parking privileges in advance of their surgery.
Where can I park if I have a Special Medical Parking permit?

Special Medical Parking permits allow for parking as follows:

  • In any STCC parking space designated for Special Medical Parking Permits (permit must be displayed).
  • Any other legal space on campus
  • You may NOT park in a regulated handicapped parking space.

SPECIAL MEDICAL PARKING PERMITS DO NOT ALLOW FOR PARKING IN REGULATED HANDICAPPED PARKING SPACES.

PARKING IN A REGULATED HANDICAPPED PARKING SPACE WITHOUT A HANDICAP PLACARD ISSUED BY THE REGISTRY OF MOTOR VEHICLES WILL RESULT IN A $100 FINE. VEHICLES IN VIOLATION MAY BE TOWED AT THE OWNER'S EXPENSE.
