Vehicle Registration Requirements
​​
Parking ServicesBeginning April 1st, the ONLINE VEHICLE REGISTRATION will be available for all registered Students & Faculty/Staff to register their vehicle for their upcoming academic year parking permit. Those who wish to purchase a summer parking permit ONLY will need to come to the CMU Police Department/ Parking Services Office during SUMMER business hours (Monday - Friday 7:30 am to 4:00 pm).

All students must have their housing assignment and a global ID before utilizing the online vehicle registration links. You will receive your housing assignment from the Office of Residence Life and your global ID from the Information Technology help desk at (989) 774-3662. The housing assignment and student global ID (with password) are both required to complete your online vehicle registration.

In order to ensure that you receive the proper parking permit, you MUST add/or edit the campus/local address you will be living at at the start of classes for that academic year on your registration request. You will need to provide your complete campus or home address including your room/apartment number, name of the residence hall or off campus street address. Faculty/Staff will need to add/edit their campus department address on your registration request.

If your address changes during the school year, your vehicle registration records must be updated to keep your permit valid. You can stop in, phone, or e-mail Parking Services at parking@cmich.edu to make this change. When changing your campus/local address by e-mail, your message MUST contain your full name, your campus ID, your old campus/local address, and your new campus/local address. If you have an e-mail address you use regularly, please include it on your vehicle registration form in case we need to contact you regarding your permit application

The only payment option for students is STUDENT ACCOUNT BILLING, although the parking permit charge WILL NOT BE BILLED until the FALL or SPRING billing cycle.
