Submitting an appeal – Within 7 days of receiving the parking citation in question, you may submit an appeal for consideration via MyUWF. (Search for the "Parking Transaction Portal" app.) Most of the information necessary to fill out the appeals form can be found printed on the citation.

Appeals Levels – Appeals are handled on two progressive levels. The first level is an in-house review by the Parking Services Manager. Those submitting an appeal will receive an email response with the outcome of the first level within 5 business days. Appeals denied at this level will automatically be forwarded to the second level of appeal. The second level of appeal is conducted by The Parking Violations Appeals Board (PVAB). The person making the appeal is entitled to be present during the the PVAB meeting. A notification of the outcome of the second level will be emailed after the PVAB meeting.

  • All appeals will be heard by the Board once
  • All decisions by the Board are final and binding

PVAB Meeting Schedule – The date, time and location of the next PVAB meeting will be posted on MyUWF "Parking Transaction Portal" app main page and on the "View Your Appeals" page two weeks prior to the meeting date.
