(a) When any person is accused of violating any of The University of Mississippi parking/driving regulations:
(a.1) Such persons shall be entitled to a hearing before a Board of Appeals for the hearing of such cases. Student cases are to be heard by the Student Board of Appeals, members of which are appointed by the current Chairman of the Student Appeals Board. Dates, times, and location for students to appeal are set by the Student Appeals Board and made available by the Office of the Dean of Students (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org, 662-915-7248, Student Union Building Room 401). Faculty/staff cases are to be heard by the Faculty/Staff Board of Appeals. The Chancellor appoints this board. Dates, times, and location for faculty/staff appeals are available at UPD’s Parking Services Office (Kinard Hall Wing-C, 662-915-7235, e-mail: email@example.com).
(a.2) Such persons shall further be entitled to receive notice in writing at least three days prior to the hearing and such notice shall set forth charges with sufficient particularity and clarity to enable the accused to prepare a reasonable defense.
(a.3) If a faculty/staff member or student chooses to appeal a ticket, he/she must make the appeal to the appropriate board.
Students can make an appeal in person or in writing. When making an oral appeal to the Student Appeals Board, the student is to appear before the board with the subject ticket and his/her University of Mississippi student ID. Students can pick up a written appeal form in the Office of the Dean of Students in the Student Union Building Room 401 or at UPD’s Parking Services Office in Kinard Hall between 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. weekdays. Students must submit their written appeal with the subject ticket attached to it to the Office of the Dean of Students or UPD’s Parking Services Office by noon of the court date specified on the ticket.
Faculty/staff can make an appeal in person or in writing. When making an oral appeal to the Faculty/Staff Appeals Board, the person is to appear before the board with the copy of the subject ticket and his/her University of Mississippi employee ID. The faculty/staff member can pick up a written appeal form at UPD’s Parking Services Office in Kinard Hall between 8:00 a.m. -5:00 p.m. weekdays. The written appeal form with the subject ticket attached to it is to be turned in to the Parking Services Office by noon of the court date specified on the ticket.
(a.4) Such person shall be further entitled to present a defense to said Board of Appeals and shall have the right to present evidence and shall be given the opportunity to hear and question all witnesses.
(a.5) Such person shall be further entitled, if the person so chooses, to be accompanied by an advisor. The advisor will be permitted to only speak with this person and not the board and/or others appearing before the board.
(a.6) A UPD representative will attend meetings of the board for the benefit of the board in the event clarification is needed related to situations under consideration.
(b) An appeal may not be made to either board after the court date specified on the face of the ticket. The failure of any person to appear and contest an action upon delivery of notice in writing of the time and place to appear for an administrative hearing shall be considered to have waived the right to such a hearing.
(c) A citation issued by the University of Mississippi Police and Campus Safety Department shall be an official University notice of such administrative hearing.
(d) The findings of the Student Board of Appeals shall be final.
(e) The findings of the Faculty/Staff Board of Appeals shall be final.
(f) The penalty assessed to a student by the Student Appeals Board subsequent to the board hearing will be posted to the student’s bursar account. Penalties assessed to faculty and staff subsequent to a hearing before the Faculty/Staff Appeals Board are paid through payroll deductions.
(g) All discrepancies of bills should be cleared up with UPD’s Parking Services Office within the 30-day period after the first bursar bill has been generated for students or the first e-mail notice of payroll deduction generated for faculty/staff. Failure to comply could result in charges being due and payable. This applies to present and former faculty, staff, and students.
