Vehicle Registration and Parking Policy

Vehicle Registration

Vehicle registration is free and can be done online through your myHesston account. Each student motor vehicle—car, motorcycle, truck, etc.—must be registered and display a Hesston College parking sticker on the left side of the rear bumper or in the lower left hand corner of the rear window. Make sure the sticker is visible. A registration sticker provides quick identification of a vehicle owner when a vehicle must be moved for snow removal or in emergency situations.

If you have a vehicle registration sticker from the 2012-13 school year, you do not need to re-register your vehicle. To receive your free registration sticker, follow the steps listed below.

  1. Complete the form that you receive at registration and send it to the Campus Facilities office by campus mail or visit the office in Laban Peachey Center, by Aug. 26, 2011. More forms are available from the office.
  2. Your registration sticker will be mailed to you through campus mail.
  3. Display the registration sticker on the left side of the rear bumper or in the lower left hand corner of the rear window.
  4. Display the sticker by date indicated on the sticker memo that you will receive.
  5. Fines for violations of the parking policy are: $10 for the first violation, $15 for the second, $20 for the third and so on.
