PARKING PERMIT

If you are parking on the APU Azusa campuses, you need a parking permit.

The Monrovia site does not require parking permits but all students are required to register their vehicles in case of emergency at the following link: apu.thepermitstore.com. You may also use this link to request a parking permit. Once you register online, if you are an Azusa campus student or have at least one class at the Azusa campuses you must purchase a permit ($129.75 per semester), your student account will be charged and your parking permit will be mailed to you.
