ADA parking is always enforced. A valid Ferris State University parking permit is
required to accompany an ADA compliant placard or plate. Guests visiting campus must
obtain a free guest permit from the online portal or in-person at the Bulldog Service

in any legal parking space. Parking at metered spaced will require payment, as designated
on the meter, unless the permit or license plate has a free parking sticker from the
Michigan Secretary of State.
ADA Compliance Permits
Individuals needing ADA parking privileges must obtain a permit from the Michigan

Illegal Use of an ADA Parking Placard or License Plate
Under Michigan Law, it is unlawful to use an ADA placard or license plate when the
ADA holder is not being transported, to lend the placard to another person, and/or
to make a copy of the placard.
Public Safety will confiscate ADA placards found to be in use illegally and return
said placard to the Secretary of State with an explanation of misuse and a fine issued,
if parked in an ADA space.
Handicapped Parking Fine is $100.
