Quarterly and Annual Permits

To avoid paying for a parking permit each day, students may pay a quarterly or annual fee for a parking decal that can be transferred from one vehicle windshield to another. (The motorcycle decal goes on the bumper.)

The quarterly decal must be purchased online each quarter, and a separate decal is necessary for summer. You are eligible for a refund only if you return the unused decal to the campus police substation, on the lower level of the Campus Center, by the second Friday of the quarter (first Friday of summer session), or if all your classes are cancelled by the college.

Parking Decal Must be Purchased Online

Parking decals must be purchased online through MyPortal: Open the Apps page and click on the "Student Registration" tile in the Students section, then click on "Order De Anza Parking Permit."

Orders are processed and decals will be mailed by the next business day. Upon completion of the online purchase, you will receive a purchase confirmation via email or text message. You will also be provided with a printable receipt and an interim permit, good for 15 days from the date of purchase, that you can print out. The interim permit is for temporary display until your decal arrives in the mail. All decals are mailed to the delivery address specified on the order.

  • You will be required to pay for a new parking decal if yours is stolen, lost or damaged, or if you entered an incorrect or incomplete delivery address when ordering.
