Southeast Missouri State University students may begin registering for 2019-2020 parking permits July 8.

Registration for all 2019-2020 parking permits will open at 8 a.m. July 8.  At that time, students may apply online at http://portal.semo.edu or, for students who do not have access to the internet, application can be made on the phone by calling Parking Services at (573) 651-2310.  Students should apply using only one method.

The application period for the preferred lottery, a system based on student seniority to determine distribution of the preferred decals, opens on July 8 and will close at 4 p.m. Friday, Aug. 2, while registration for perimeter, evening only, and employee permits will remain open through the fall semester. Lottery applications must be submitted before the Aug. 2 closing date.  Because distribution of the preferred decals is assigned using a lottery, the time at which a student applies does not affect the chances of getting preferred parking.  Likewise, the method used to apply does not affect selection in the lottery.  Applications are placed in the lottery and sorted according to student seniority.

The preferred permit lottery will be conducted, and preferred decals will be assigned beginning Aug. 5. Students can determine preferred permit assignment by checking their billing summary after Aug. 6.

Commuter Preferred parking decals will be assigned into these allotments:

  • 65 percent will be distributed to students with 90 or more hours.
  • 30 percent will go to students with 60 to 89 hours.
  •   5 percent will be distributed to students with 30 to 59 hours.

Resident preferred parking decals will be assigned into these allotments:

  • 65 percent will be distributed to students with 90 or more hours.
  • 30 percent will go to students with 60 to 89 hours.
  •   4 percent will be distributed to students with 30 to 59 hours.
  •   1 percent will be distributed to students with 29 or fewer hours.

New in the 2019-2020 academic year, students residing in Towers, Greek, Myers, Vandiver and Merick residence halls who have completed 29 or fewer hours will be eligible to participate in the preferred parking lottery.

Also new for the upcoming academic year, students who have completed 30 or more hours and reside in LaFerla Hall will be eligible to apply for preferred parking located near their residence hall in lots 4-18 and 4-19. Students living in LaFerla Hall having completed 29 or fewer hours will not be eligible for preferred parking. Permits for this permit type will be distributed in the same allotments as preferred commuter permits.

Students who apply for preferred permits but are not drawn in the lottery may choose to be placed on a waiting list.  Students must choose and accept perimeter parking as an alternate permit type to be automatically added to the preferred permit waiting list.   Students will be placed on the waiting list based upon cumulative hours and will receive a perimeter decal to use until the time they become eligible for preferred parking from the waiting list.  Eligibility is determined as space in preferred parking lots becomes available. When space becomes available students will be contacted by University email.

Students who decline a perimeter parking permit if they are not drawn in the lottery are not added to a preferred parking waiting list and are no longer eligible for a preferred permit for the 2019-2020 academic year.

Two or more individuals who ride together and arrive and depart the campus at the same time may purchase a carpool permit. To purchase a carpool permit, students should not apply for the preferred parking lottery or for perimeter parking. Requests for carpool permits should be made in person at the Parking Services office after Aug. 12. Each member of the carpool must be present at the time of application.

Commuter and resident students may pick up their decals at the Parking Services office, 1401 N. Sprigg Street (in front of the Show Me Center) beginning Aug. 12. For one day only, during residence hall move-in Thursday, Aug. 15, resident students will pick up their permits from the Student Recreation Center adjacent to the Show Me Center.
