Catalog 2022-2023


Students pay a $20 parking fee each term. Students obtain parking decals in the Admissions Office or at the Information Desk on the Athens Campus, the Student Affairs Office on the Elbert County Campus, the Director's Office at the Greene County Campus, and the Director's Office on the Walton County Campus. Parking decals must be displayed on students' vehicles at all times. Students must park in designated student parking areas. Students may not be able to park in a lot directly adjacent to their classroom building; therefore, students should allow ample time to park and walk across campus before the start of their classes.

Security guards patrol campus to enforce parking regulations and to assist with vehicle problems. Campus security issues tickets for illegally parked vehicles, including vehicles without proper parking decals or those parked in reserved or restricted areas or on campus lawns. Athens Technical College security has the right to tow illegally parked vehicles and to assess a towing fine. Students who receive tickets must pay their fines before registering for classes, receiving grades or transcripts, or graduating.

Carpool and LEV Parking — Carpool and LEV (Low Emission Vehicle) parking spaces are available at Building A (Life Sciences Building) on the Athens Campus. Students and college employees may park in these spaces after obtaining a carpool or LEV parking decal in the Student Affairs Office in Building H-700.

No Parking Zones/Fire Lanes — Parking is not permitted in the fire lane are or no-parking zones located at the entrances of each building.

Parking for Persons with Disabilities — Students and employees with disabilities (permanent or temporary) who require special parking accommodations must first obtain a special parking decal from the Georgia State Patrol. This decal, when displayed with a regular Athens Technical College parking permit, allows students to park their vehicles in spaces reserved for persons with disabilities.
