Graduates will be able to pre-purchase parking permits ($14) when they register to participate and order their caps and gowns in May. If you wish to guarantee parking in a particular lot, it is recommended that you pre-purchase a permit, since some lots may sell out. Day-of-event parking permits will cost $1 more and will require that you stop at the gates to purchase the permit.
