I just purchased a new vehicle with temporary tags. Do I need to register it?
  • Yes, please register any new vehicle, even with temporary tags, that you will be parking on campus. Temporary tags must be registered as a license plate number, not a VIN number.
     
  • Once the permanent plates are received, revisit the portal and add your new plates. Make sure your license plate is entered correctly; one letter or number off will result in a virtual ticket.
