Pay a Ticket

Ticket Payments

Tickets can be paid online using the Parking Operations system within ten (10) days
from the date of issue, or payment may be made through the following offices:

  • Cashiers Office, 5115 Oak St., Suite 112, Kansas City MO 64112
  • Parking Operations, 5115 Oak St., Suite 221, Kansas City, MO 64112

Ticket Fees

Individuals need to either pay or place a ticket on appeal within the ten-day period after the ticket is issued. After ten days, tickets that have been affiliated to a student, faculty or staff member's parking account will be billed to the student or employee's Pathway account for collection. Once a ticket has billed to an account in Pathway, it will no longer be available for payment in the Parking Operations online system and will need to be paid through Pathway or the Cashiers Office.

Tickets that are not affiliated to an individual's account at the time of issuance may be affiliated at a later date as a result of a vehicle registration search of the license plate through the appropriate state system, which may delay billing to Pathway.

Please see section 10 of the regulations to learn more about parking fees.

Appeal a Ticket

Read all information on this page prior to submitting your appeal.


Violations should be paid or appealed within ten (10) days from receipt of the violation.

Appeals must be received within ten (10) days of the issue date on the ticket. Appeals received after 10 days will not be considered. Fill in all the information. Incomplete appeals will not be considered. Information should be as concise as possible.

If you have additional documentation you would like to provide the committee, such as photographs or repair bills, you may bring or send these to the Parking Operations Office to attach to your appeal or take them to the meeting with you.

If you are appealing more than one violation, a separate appeal must be filed for each violation. The UMKC Parking and Traffic Committee hears all violation appeals, and decisions made by the committee are final and are not subject to further appeal.

The Parking and Traffic Committee consists of three faculty members nominated by the Faculty Senate, three staff members nominated by the Staff Council and three students nominated by the Student Government Association or the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs.

You will be notified of the date and time your appeal will be heard. You are welcome to meet with the committee at that time, but your attendance is not required.

If you do not receive an email response from the Parking Operations Department within five (5) days, we did not receive your appeal, and you will need to resubmit the appeal.

Notification of the committee's decision will be sent via email within five (5) days of the appeal hearing.

The following reasons are not grounds for a successful appeal:

  • Lack of knowledge of regulations, for example, being new to campus or having not read regulations
  • Other vehicles were also parked improperly
  • Late to class or appointment
  • Disagreement with or inability to pay the amount of the fine(s)
  • Lack of space
  • Unread or misunderstood signs
  • Parking for only a short period of time with or without flashers
  • Parked in a handicap area without a valid DMV handicap placard or plate
  • The violation is just "not fair"
  • The disappearance of a parking violation notice from a vehicle
  • Parked at an expired meter for any period of time
  • Parked at an expired meter because you have a permit

Tickets are not available online for appeal until the day after the date of issue.
