Green Car permits

A Green Car permit allows access to preferred parking spots on campuses. Green Car permits are free for vehicles on the green car list (pdf). Green car drivers must purchase and display a regular ACC parking permit. (Green car spaces are limited; a permit does not necessarily guarantee a preferred spot.)

To request a permit, follow the instructions for requesting a Green Car sticker on the Obtain a Parking Permit webpage. Have your ACCeID for login; license plate number; and vehicle year, make & model.

You will receive an approval notice within five business days of submitting your request. Once you receive the approval email, pick up the sticker at your designated Cashier Office.
