Parking Tickets

Tickets issued by the Department of Public Safety can be paid in the Student Services Center with debit card, credit card, or Bulldog Bucks.  If possible, bring the ticket or your license plate number to the office to properly record payment.  You can also send checks to the Student Services Center (Student Services Center, 2507 University Ave, Des Moines, IA 50311). 

We email invoices for citation payments whenever possible.   If you do not receive an emailed invoice for your citation, you may email us (providing us with your license plate number to look up your citation) at  We can then email you an invoice to allow you to pay your citation online.  

Failure to pay a fine within 30 days from the date the ticket is issued will result in an additional late fine of $15. After 30 days, unpaid fines will be treated as any other past due obligation to the University and may result in withholding of transcripts and denial of permission to subsequently register for any classes.

If you wish to appeal a citation, you may do so on this online form
