Appealing Process

An official appeal form must be submitted to Parking Services within 15 calendar days from the date the citation was issued.

Appeal options:

Online Appeal Form

Come into the Parking Office and complete a form.

If you are having problems completing the online appeal form, please contact our office 509-963-2667.

For extenuating circumstances it is your responsibility to provide the Parking Office with documented proof, such as car or medical problems, when submitting your appeal.

  • The parking appeals are reviewed by the CWU Parking Appeals Board. The Board is made up Faculty, Civil Service staff, and Student members. On the appeal form you have the option to mark that you would like to attended the meeting. It is not required to be present.


  • If you do not agree with the decision of the CWU Parking Appeals Board, you have the option to re-appeal your violation to the Kittitas County Lower District Court. Re-appeal forms must be completed within 10 days of the date on the letter for the CWU appeal result notification.


  • Kittitas County Lower District Court appeal forms can be completed at the University Police & Parking Services building.


Parking citations are issued for violation of established CWU parking regulations. An appeal must be based on the premise that the citation was not consistent with CWU parking regulations, or that special extenuating circumstances exist that should excuse the appellant from compliance with these regulations.


Appeal forms may be obtained from CWU Parking Office located at the University Police and Parking Services building, Monday - Friday, 8 AM - 5 PM, or filled out online from this website.


Forms may be submitted by mail, online, fax, or in person to:
