Parking and Student ID’s

All students and employees who park a motor vehicle on SMCC property must register their vehicle and display a valid parking permit on the vehicle. The permit, issued by South Mountain Community College, is valid for all Maricopa Community Colleges.

To obtain a Student ID, you must have a valid photo ID, such as a driver’s license. There is no charge for your first Student ID, but a fee of $5 will be charged for replacement cards. You will be photographed at the time you apply for your student ID. (You may not wear a hat for your photo, so be sure to fix your hair first!)

Where to Go

Student IDs are available at the Registration and Records Office, inside the Student Enrollment Services (SES) Building.

Why Do You Need an ID?

These cards identify you as a current SMCC student, and should always be carried with you when on campus. They will be required for library use, and for certain classes. Remember, you can also take advantage of “student discounts” at movies, museums, and theme parks by having a current Student ID!

Parking StickerGetting your official parking pass is easy. To get your pass, all you need is your SMCC Student ID and the license plate number of your car, along with the year, make and model of your vehicle.

The form you need to fill out is available in the Registration and Records Office. We can take your photo and issue your Student ID at the same time you get your parking sticker!

Where Does the Sticker Go?

On cars or trucks, your parking permit should be placed or affixed on the inside of the lower front windshield (driver’s side), so that it may be viewed from the outside.

On motorized cycles, the permit should be placed or affixed where it can be seen without difficulty on the front fender or fork.

If you have any questions or problems concerning the parking permit, please speak with the SMCC Registration and Records Office or SMCC Public Safety Office.
