Traffic Violations and Tickets

When an offender violates any rule or regulation set forth herein that has been clearly established by waiver, voluntary admission, and/or by an official hearing, the offender will be subject to a special administrative fee and/or disciplinary action.

After receiving notice of a violation, students may make an appeal with the Office of Student Life within seven (7) working days from the date of the citation. To do so, students may visit the Ticket Appeals web page or click the “Appeal a Citation Here” button on the main page. Then they must complete an online appeal form. In addition, students may visit Student Life for a paper form. If the offender so desires, he/she may request, and be entitled to, legal counsel. Also, when appearing before the Student Court, the offender may be present and question witnesses. Additionally, staff and employees should submit an appeal in writing to the University Police Department.

In lieu of the above procedure, violators may take the ticket to the Bolivar County District II Justice Court.
