Student Parking Refunds

Update to Spring Parking Refunds (April 24, 2020)

Dear student parking permit holders,

We want to update you on the way parking refunds are being handled. We detected an error in the initial file upload, so we updated the file with the refund amounts on Monday, April 20.

When you look at your student account, you will see a Parking Permit Credit COVID 19 posted as a negative amount dated April 19, a reversal of that amount, and then a corrected parking credit.

Please remember that refunds for parking, housing, and dining will first be applied to any outstanding student balances. Refunds will begin to be issued at the end of this week and Student Accounts expects refunds to be processed by early May.

For reference, here is the refund table which indicates the refund amount for the permit type you purchased. Annual permit refund amounts include the remainder of the academic year. Although refunds have been issued, all permits are still valid through their original expiration date should students need to park on campus.

Please contact Parking at parking@gmu.edu for credit amount inquiries or Students Accounts for refund inquiries at saccount@gmu.edu.

Thank you.

 

Original Message

Students will begin to receive their refunds in the coming weeks, with all refunds expected to be processed by the end of the semester  Each refund will vary and be based on one’s permit type.  Please refer to the parking charts to understand what you can expect for your specific refund.  Additional information is available in the Student Accounts FAQ.

We will refund a pro-rated amount of each parking permit representing 10 weeks of parking fees for the Spring semester, with an accommodation for necessary fixed costs.  We are suspending our usual procedure of requiring permits to be returned when requesting refunds.  Permits expiring at the end of the spring term will expire on the expected date, while permits that extend to later dates can still be used through their normal expiration dates after campus operations resume.

Credits will be applied automatically to outstanding balances on student accounts, with the remainder refunded by Direct Deposit or check.

Students, please check to make sure your mailing address is current in PatriotWeb or enroll in Direct Deposit to assist us in processing these funds.  You do not need to take any other action to request a refund.
