It is the policy of Southern Crescent Technical College to establish rules and regulations for our campus community that will ensure an orderly flow of motor vehicle traffic, maximize available campus parking, and allow for safe and reasonable access to campus facilities. The college attempts to enforce these regulations consistently and fairly; however, the fact that a particular infraction goes undetected does not excuse other infractions. Infractions should be reported to a campus security officer. Inclement weather conditions do not alter any of the provisions of these regulations.
Southern Crescent Technical College is responsible for establishing and maintaining the signs and markings necessary to enforce parking regulations. Vehicles may be operated or parked on college property only in areas designated by signs, street markings, or the college map.
