Parking Frequently Asked Questions
- Parking Policy
Why does Flagler have this parking policy?
Parking is an issue not just for Flagler College, but also for the city of St. Augustine. Parking spaces are limited and in high demand with residents, students, tourists and business people. Flagler's parking policy, along with the associated fees, is in order to offset the growing cost of parking in the city and to the College.
How do you intend to keep the people who pay nothing out of on-campus parking spots?
Disciplinary procedures are in place; tickets that are issued on a regular basis are registered on the students’ financial record as fines and after a fixed number of tickets, the vehicle will be booted and/or towed.

- Flagler Parking Tickets
For what reasons would I receive a Flagler parking ticket?
Citations are issued for parking in an unauthorized parking space or parking lot. For example, students are not allowed to park in Reserved Parking spaces, 24-Hour Tow parking spaces, or faculty/staff parking lots. Also, citations are issued for not having a current parking decal displayed on the vehicle, obstructing driveway, parking on grass, in fire lane, in a handicap space without proper permit, or parking next to a yellow curb.
Where do I pay Flagler parking tickets?
To pay a citation with a credit card, visit www.flagler.edu/parkingtickets. If you wish to pay with cash or check, you can pay at the business office.
What happens if I don't pay my parking tickets?
Once multiple citations are issued to a vehicle, the Office of Security and Safety will place a boot on the vehicle and all outstanding parking citations and a boot fee must be paid before the boot will be removed. Unpaid parking citations will be posted to student’s account and can keep them from being able to register for classes the next semester.

Yes, you can get a temporary pass from Flagler security located in the Ponce Hall lobby.
If I have guests on campus (family, friends, etc.) could they receive a temporary pass?
