Courses, course content, class times and units are subject to change depending upon enrollment and the requirements of the district. All enrollment fees are subject to change.
Parking permits are required for on-campus parking except in marked 24 minute visitor spaces and free parking lots B2 and B3. There are two options which can be used: full semester permits which can be purchased and displayed on the vehicle; or, one day use permits which can be purchased at various points within the parking lots and displayed on the vehicle dashboard. These permits must be purchased for ALL vehicles including those displaying handicapped plates and/or placards for special parking spaces.
Enforcement Hours - Parking permits are required 24 hours a day Monday through Thursday and Friday until 6:00 p.m. Parking is free on Friday after 6:00 p.m. and on Saturday and Sunday. All other vehicle codes are enforced 24 hours each day.
Free Parking Lots - The Board of Trustees has authorized free parking in parking lots B2 and B3. These lots are located in the southwest corner of the campus. Spaces in these lots are available on a "first come, first served" basis. If no space is available in either of these two lots, other lots where permits are required must be used to park on campus. The fact that the "free lots" are full will not constitute a valid excuse for parking without a permit elsewhere on campus. Parking in lots B2 or B3 only waives the requirement to display a valid parking permit. All other traffic and parking regulations are enforced in these lots.
Notice - This is a contract. This contract limits our liability - Parking permits entitle the holder to the rental of space only. No bailment is created. San Joaquin Delta College District is not responsible for loss of, or damage to, the vehicle or any of its contents.
Parking Permits - Can be purchased in the Bookstore.
Refunds - Parking permit refunds will be given only if all classes are dropped on or before the same deadlines that apply to enrollment fee refunds. It is recommended that students determine actual parking needs before purchasing a permit.
