Payment options

Permit purchases may be made through UNCC MyPark or by visiting the Parking and Transportation Office. 

One-time credit card payment

  • Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover accepted.

Credit Card on File Payment Plan (CCOF)

  • Pay for your permit in three monthly payments. 
  • CCOF charges your bank card for the first three consecutive months. The first payment will include a non-refundable $20 fee. Permit is active upon the first payment. 

Payroll deduction

Faculty and staff may purchase permits through payroll deduction.

New icon Payroll deduction begins within two payroll periods following purchase. 

  • Temporary employees who purchase in August see the first deduction Aug. 27.
  • Full-time employees who purchase in August see the first deduction Aug. 31.
  • Part-time faculty members who do not receive an August paycheck will be contacted directly for a customized plan.

The first payroll deduction is double the amount of subsequent deductions. For example:

  • ​​Payroll takes $48 for a Standard annual permit purchased in August during the first payroll deduction and then $24 per pay period thereafter.​
  • ​For a Premium annual permit purchased in August, payroll subtracts $62 at the first payroll deduction and $31 per pay period thereafter. 
  • Deduction amounts for permits purchased after August will vary by permit type and purchase date.
  • Standard payroll deductions begin on the second deduction and continue until the permit is paid in full.

Faculty and staff may cancel their permit and payroll deduction by submitting a Refund Request Form. Restrictions apply
