Student Permit

Read the information below, then follow the steps at the bottom of the page to purchase your permit.

Permit Purchasing Tips


  • Know your license plate and whether your state uses numbers 0 and 1, letters O and I, or both. For example, if your plate is M1ZZ0U and you register MIZZOU, our license-plate recognition software will flag your vehicle for a citation.
  • Bookmark this map of campus parking structures and lots. If you receive more than one parking option, you can quickly check which one is best for you.
  • Please be patient with our parking staff when they answer your call. They work very hard to meet increased demand during peak parking permit registration.


  • Do not register as a visitor. This will only delay your ability to request a permit.
  • Do not log into the Portal on multiple devices at once. Again, this will just slow the process down — for you and everyone else.

Important Information

1. Your permit selection will not go through until the desired location is selected and becomes highlighted in black.

2. If you are a parent/guardian purchasing a permit for a student, we are legally mandated under FERPA to not discuss their records with you (including billing) without the student’s written consent, regardless if the student is a minor.

3. All permit cancellation requests must be from the student’s email (e.g., cancellation will not be approved from any other email than the school email listed under their account. This is university policy.

4. All students who are issued a permit will receive emails to their student email during football and basketball home games, all of that information can also be found on the Student Game Day  Parking page.

5. Any unpaid citations will place a hold on your account, this will prevent you from registering for courses for the next semester. To remove the hold on your account, either appeal or resolve listed citations.
