The Board of Appeals

If your appeal is denied and you do not agree with the denial you have the right to request a review of your appeal by the Board of Appeals.  The Board of Appeals is a third-party board comprised of Boise State University employees and students. This board meets by request only.

Prior to requesting review by the Board of Appeals the citation must be paid in full; including a processing fee, in the Transit Center.  A request for review by the Board of Appeals can be submitted using the button at the top of this page.  Please visit our Transit Office located at 1910 University Dr. Boise ID, 83725 if additional assistance is needed.

The decision of the Board of Appeals will represent the final decision of the University on the matter. Notification of the Board of Appeals decision will be sent within five (5) working days of the date of the final decision. In the event that the Board of Appeals reverses the initial appeal, the University will post a refund of the citation payment to the customer that will be credited to the account.

Appeal Deadline Waiver Info

Citations more than ten business days old cannot be submitted traditionally. If you have unavoidably passed the ten (10) day deadline, please click the following link for the Deadline Waiver Form: Request to Waiver Appeal Deadline Form

The Adjudication Committee will respond to your deadline waiver in a timely manner. There are two steps to the Deadline Waiver process. First, The Adjudication Committee will determine if your reasoning for missing the deadline is valid. If your reasoning is sound they will move the appeal through the appeal process outlined above. If the Adjudication Committee denies your Deadline Waiver payment of the citation is due within fourteen (14) business days of the waiver denial to avoid late fees.

Note: Transportation and Parking Services or the Board of Appeals will not review citations over twenty-five (25) calendar days old or any citations that have been sent to collections.
