Commuter Information

College Now Commuter

Commuter students are an important part of our campus community. The information on this page will help you find valuable resources on campus.

Student ID

New students should submit a campus ID photo and pick up your student ID at the Campus Security office on the top floor of the Stevens Student Center (SSC). If you lose your student ID, please contact Campus Security for a replacement. College Now Student IDs are not programmable for meal plans, dining dollars, or access to rooms.

Vehicle Registration

Students must register your vehicle online. College Now Commuter parking passes can be purchased online or at the Campus Security office for $10 each semester. This office is located on the top floor of the Stevens Student Center.


As a commuter, you should park in lots assigned to academic buildings. Please do not park in:

  • Blue-striped faculty/staff parking spaces in any lot
  • Visitor spaces in the Stevens Student Center (SSC) lot
  • 30–minute parking spaces in the Dixon Ministry Center (DMC) lot

Commuters parking in prohibited spaces will be ticketed. If you wish to contest a ticket, you may file an appeal. Appeals take 10–14 days to process.
