  • Pay by e-check to avoid the 2.75% convenience fee for debit/credit card payments.

Step 2: Complete the Parking Permit Application through your MyDU account

Helpful Tips
  • You'll need to log in using your Dominican credentials: username and password. Can't remember it or need to reset it, visit MyAccount, DU's self-service password management site.
  • Be sure to have your vehicle information including your license plate number readily available. 
  • Your application automatically saves as you go—thus, if you need to break from it, you can easily access it at a later time and pick up where you left off.
  • If you are picking up your permit on campus, please have your Dominican ID ready; it's required to receive a parking permit.
