Graduate Assistants

Graduate Assistants, Teaching Assistants, and Research Assistants

If you are a student who has accepted a contract to be a Graduate, Teaching, or Research Assistant, you may take advantage of the discounted parking rate in the St. Philip Street and Wentworth Street Parking Garages.  You must deposit funds to your Cougar Cash account in order to receive the discount.  Deposits can be made at Cougar Card Services, the Card Value Center in the Addlestone Library or on MyCharleston (with a two hour delay).  Present your Cougar Card and the ticket you got when entering the parking garage to the cashier upon exiting and you will be charged a maximum of $7 a day. 

Parking in the garages is subject to availability.  If the garage is full when you arrive, you will not be able to pull a ticket to park there.  The $7 daily price is intended for single day use, and is not applicable for overnight or multiple day parking.

You must obtain a Cougar Card with a Graduate, Teaching, or Research Assistant designation by bringing a copy of your contract to Cougar Card Services.  This card will be printed with the expiration date of your contract.  Your card will not work for the discounted parking if you have a Student designation.

If you have completed a contract and need to go back to a Student designation, or need to renew your card for a new contract term, please visit Cougar Card Services
