Citation Appeals

You may appeal any Texas Woman’s University parking citation through the University Traffic Appeals Committee. Members of the committee are faculty, staff and students who meet to consider the appeals of traffic tickets.

If the recipient of a citation believes that it is unwarranted, he or she may request a review by the University's Traffic Appeals Board. The appeal must be filed online within 10 calendar days from the date of the citation. The appeals board will notify the appellant of its decision.

Appeals must be submitted online.

The citation does not need to be paid and late fees are not accrued during the time it is on appeal.

All appeals are based on the TWU Traffic Regulations. Your personal opinion that the regulation is unfair or that you feel there is insufficient parking on campus is not generally perceived as a legitimate reason to dismiss the ticket.


  • Appeals must be filed online within 10 days of receiving the ticket. After 10 days appeals will not be accepted, and the ticket with the late fee must be paid
  • Appeals are first based on your written statement. The written statement is reviewed by the Traffic Committee, and if the appeal is denied, a personal appeal can be requested
  • Make sure the address and telephone number you provide is current. The information you provide is used to notify you of the appeal decision, and to notify you of the time of your in-person appeal, should you choose that option
  • On the form, write out the reason(s) for your appeal. Include relevant facts, applicable portion(s) of the TWU Traffic Regulations, and any extenuating or mitigating circumstances. Evidence such as photographs can be submitted with the form. Remember: the details you provide is the information the appeals committee uses to decide the appeal
