What if I don't pay my outstanding parking summonses?

Delinquent accounts may be subject to the towing of the vehicle.  Additionally, any delinquent account can be turned over to a collections agency for payment.

My account has been turned over to the collections agency.  What do I do?

All parking summonses that have been sent for collection may only be paid at the collections agency.  No payment will be accepted for these outstanding summonses at Buffalo State College.

My car has been towed.  What do I do?

You will need to contact University Police to find out why the vehicle was towed.  If it is for outstanding parking summonses, you will then have to contact Parking Services to obtain a printout of your outstanding balance and make arrangements for payment with Student Accounts.  Once your account is paid in full, University Police will give you a release to take to the towing agency to pick up your vehicle.
