How do I register for a handicapped permit?
If your vehicle has handicapped license plates, the vehicle is automatically authorized to park in any handicapped-reserved space. A valid CSI parking permit is still required.
The College of Staten Island requires, in addition to a valid CSI parking permit, every student and college employee who displays a State, County, or municipal agency handicapped hangtag to REGISTER with the Office of parking & DolphinCard Services prior to using the handicapped-reserved spaces on campus. A special permit will be issued for your vehicle that will authorize you to park in these spaces. Please contact the office for specific instructions.  Please follow up with an email to our office OPS@csi.cuny.edu with a copy of your driver’s license and a copy of your hangtag to verify handicapped credentials.

What if I don't pay tickets received?
Due to a rise in non-compliance with permit purchasing, we will be increasing enforcement monitoring, which will include immobilization of non-compliant vehicles. Vehicles with two (2) more outstanding summonses that are past the due date for payment are subject to vehicle immobilization. Additional sanctions may include placement of an academic block, which will prevent the student from registering for classes, receiving a transcript, or obtaining a diploma. Faculty and staff with one or more outstanding summonses may have a letter of advisement sent to their Department Chair, Director, or Dean. All outstanding summonses are subject to collections proceedings.
