Registration Terms and Conditions
All faculty, staff, graduate assistants, resident assistants, students, and visitors must register their vehicles with the Department of Safety and Security when the vehicle is brought on school. Generally, a student’s vehicle registration is to be completed no later than class registration day at the beginning of each semester or within one day of bringing the car to school. The cost for registering a Student Vehicle is $100 per academic year or $50 per semester. All students living on or off campus must register their vehicles even if the car is kept off campus but in the town of Bethany.
The College assumes no liability in connection with student vehicles even though the student is on College property. Vehicles must be operated lawfully as proscribed by West Virginia law and Bethany College regulations. Accidents involving faculty, staff, students, visitors, or College-owned vehicles must be reported to the Department of Safety and Security immediately. Any change in vehicle status such as model, license number, etc., must be reported immediately to the Department of Safety and Security.
Registration for Students
Students must register all motor vehicles, including motorcycles, with the Department of Campus Safety and Security. The cost for vehicle registration is $100 per academic year or $50 per semester, regardless of when a vehicle is brought to campus. All students living off campus must register their vehicles if they intend to park on College property. All vehicles must be pre-registered. Failure to pre-register a vehicle results in the vehicle being put on a waiting list for availability, and a $25 late fee is assessed if the student is granted a registration permit.
Any change in vehicle status such as model, license number, etc., must be reported immediately to the Department of Campus Safety and Security to avoid suspension of driving privileges.
Student Parking Permits
The sticker issued when a vehicle is registered must be placed on the inside of the rear window of the registered vehicle. If the registration sticker is obstructed by dark tinting, louvers, or truck caps or if the vehicle is a motorcycle, the Department of Campus Safety and Security should be made aware so that an alternate location for the registered sticker can be approved. Vehicles without this prior approval are considered in violation of registration policy.
