Parking & Novacard Services Operations

Your License Plate is Your Permit!

Effective Spring 2021 Parking Services will start using virtual permits for Students, Part-Time Employees, and Contractors. Starting July 1, 2021, virtual permits will also be available for all Full-Time Faculty and Staff.

Under the new virtual system, the permit holders license plate acts as the permit - there is no more forgetting to hang your permit, no more waiting for your permit in the mail, and no replacement fees to pay.

With virtual permits, you will now be able to order your permit online and use it immediately without waiting for the physical permit to arrive in the mail! The license plate(s) provided when purchasing your permit will be your virtual parking permit, and your permit will be valid as soon as the transaction is complete.

Since each vehicle's license plate is used as your parking permit, license plates must be registered accurately to avoid being issued a citation. Errors in license plate registration are the responsibility of the customer.

You may link up to three vehicles to your permit; however, only one vehicle can park at the College at any given time. If more than one vehicle is found at the College without the purchase of an additional permit, both vehicles may receive a citation.

For additional information, visit NOVA Virtual Permit FAQ.
