Any student desiring to be escorted to their vehicle in a CPTC parking area should check in with the front desk or your instructor for assistance. Special arrangements to and from a vehicle for parking or assistance will be considered on a case-by-case basis. In order to obtain assistance please contact your instructor, security staff, or the administrator on duty.

Safety issues or suspicious behavior should be reported immediately to security or any available administrator on duty. You may also report this behavior anonymously.

Parking areas for student, staff, handicapped, and visitor use have been specifically designated. Students are required to obtain a parking decal and to display the decals on all student vehicles parked on campus, including cars, trucks, motorcycles, and mopeds. Illegally parked vehicles (those without parking decals or those parked in reserved areas) will be issued a parking ticket by the security officers. Violations may result in fines.
