TCC Parking


At the COS Tulare College Center, parking is enforced just like our other two campuses.  You will need to purchase a parking permit to park on campus.  

There are two ways of obtaining a parking permit, one, by purchasing a semester permit good for one semester, or two, by purchasing a daily parking permit. Both parking permits are acceptable at all three COS campuses and you will not have to purchase a separate permit for each campus.  

Parking Fees are as follows: 
  • Semester Parking Permit - $25 (Fall & Spring), $10 (Summer)
  • Daily Parking Permit - $2
A grace period of two weeks is given the first two weeks of fall and spring semesters only.  Permits are not required during this time.  

Semester parking permits are purchased online by going to https://www.buymypermit.com/cos/.  Instructions on how to purchase a parking permit are included below.  Note: If this is the first time ordering a parking permit through the permit store, you will need to create a user account.  Start by clicking on "Buy a Permit" and follow the steps.


Daily parking permits are purchased at any of the permit machines located on campus.  We have three parking permit machines located in parking lots 1, 2, and 3.  The gray permit machine located in parking lot 1 accepts Visa, MasterCard or debit cards with the Visa and MasterCard logo.  The other two permit machines are orange and only accept cash; dollar bills or quarters only.  For the exact location of these machines, please click on our campus map below:
