Citation Appeal

Please note: The decision of the Traffic Judiciary is the FINAL step within the University judiciary system. For complete information on the appeals process, see the GVSU Traffic and Parking Ordinance.

Beginning January 6, 2014:

- Appeals will only be accepted within seven days of citation issuance. Faculty, staff and students of GVSU will be required to use the online process for appeal submittal with the exception of in-person appeals. Guests and visitors of GVSU may submit a written appeal (available at either Campus Safety Office), as well as online or in-person.

When entering the appeal link below, if you are not a GVSU student or faculty/staff member, you will need to LOGIN AS GUEST. To do so, you will need your Driver's License number and you will be asked to create a password. We recommend using your birthday, as it is easy to remember and we cannot reset the password for you in the future. You will continue to use this information to log in for any future visits.

LIST OF REASONS NOT CONSIDERED VALID FOR APPEAL Please remember: The appeals process is designed to provide a format to present a valid explanation regarding why the parking ticket you received would not be considered lawful under the Parking ordinances set forth by GVSU. It is not a process to present a reason or an excuse.
