How to Appeal a Citation

All citation appeals must be made through Citations must be appealed within 14 days of receipt of citation. After 14 days, citations cannot be appealed and will be transferred to the students’ KSU account. The fine(s) must be paid or a HOLD will be placed on your account.

If a citation is appealed during the 14 days after receipt of the citation, no action will occur on the citation until it is adjudicated. If the appeal is denied, it will be transferred to the students’ KSU account with a HOLD placed on the account until the fine is paid.

A HOLD on your account means you will not be able to register for classes or graduate until any open fines have been paid or resolved.


Upon receipt of the third unpaid citation, students’ vehicles are subject to being booted and are subject to towing at owners expense. All outstanding citations must be paid in order to release any registration or records holds and to remove vehicle boots. Towing may occur if a vehicle is illegally parked  or impeding traffic and is considered a hazard by the Department of Public Safety. Towing fees are $60 and are non-refundable. In the occurrence that your vehicle is towed, you may call the towing company and pay the fine to have your vehicle released from the impound lot.
