How To Get Your PSC Parking Decal

In order to receive your parking decal, you will need to show your vehicle registration and proof that you are a Pensacola State College student or employee (ID card or a paid fee schedule).

All motor vehicles operated on Pensacola State College Campuses must be registered with the Pensacola State College Police Department. This includes all full-time students, part-time students, employees, faculty and staff.

REGISTRATION:

  • Parking decals should be obtained when the student completes the course registration process or when the employee begins working for the college.
  • Decals are not transferable. Employee decals do not expire and only need to be renewed when they become illegible or worn. Student decals have the expiration date printed on them.
  • Decals must be affixed to the lower right hand corner of the rear window OR on the right rear bumper (passenger side).

Please fill out the Vehicle Decal Registration Form and return it to the Office of Public Safety at the campus nearest you.

Voluntary Bicycle Registration

The PSC Department of Public Safety offers a voluntary bicycle registration program for all students and employees. Bring your bicycle to the Public Safety Office on any campus or center and they will record its identifying information. This information will be available to Law Enforcement should your bicycle be stolen.

The best chance at recovering a stolen bicycle is by having a registered serial number. These numbers are used by police across the nation. You will need the manufacturer’s serial number to register your bike.

Serial numbers are typically located under the bottom bracket where the two pedal cranks meet. Simply turn your bike upside-down and record the number you see located between the pedal cranks. If there is no serial number there, then check places like the headset at the front of the bike or the rear stays.

Please fill out and return the Bicycle Registration Form to the Office of Public Safety on the campus nearest you.
