Vehicle Registration and Parking Policy

Vehicle Registration

Vehicle registration is free and can be done online through your my.Hesston 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. Failure to display a Hesston College registration sticker by August 30, 2024, will result in a $50 fine.

If you have a vehicle registration sticker from the 2020-21, 2021-22, 2022-23 or 2023-24 school years, you do not need to re-register your vehicle. If the sticker has fallen off, please request a new one.
