Parking On Campus
Students must register their vehicles before parking at the University of Montevallo. Once you complete and submit the form below, you will be sent a temporary parking pass.
Color Coded Parking. Students who live off campus are considered commuter students. Red parking spaces are reserved for commuters and are located in most parking lots on campus.
Tickets. If you park without a permit or in a zone other than Red, you may receive a ticket. These are automatically posted against the balance in your account. You cannot register for additional classes until you have paid the fine. Cars receiving numerous tickets may be booted until fines have been paid. Fines can be paid through the Banner Self Service link.
Paying Your Bill
UM students and parents have several payment options available including by mail, through the student’s account and in person. Payment is due by 5:00pm on the first day of the term (see payment deadlines below). Due to security and privacy reasons, the Cashier’s Office does not accept payments over the phone.
Through your student account you can make a payment, view past web payments, set up a parent/authorized user, and save payment information to make it easier to pay the next time. You also have the option of paying with an e-check. Everything is secure and compliant with federal regulations. *Please use Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer*

**Please make sure when mailing a payment to UM that the student’s assigned University ID number is included with payment and that payment arrives on or before the payment deadline date so a late payment fee is not incurred**
Under the provisions of FERPA, information from a student’s education record may be disclosed by the University of Montevallo to a parent, guardian, or other individual if the student submits a signed Records Release Authorization form to the Registrar’s Office.
Submission of this form constitutes written consent to release such information to whomever the student designates. The University will honor the authorization until and unless otherwise redacted by the student via signed notification submitted to the Registrar’s Office.
Campus Bookstore and Textbooks
Several options are available for the purchase of textbooks. These options include going through the following sources:
Campus Bookstore/Follett on Main Street
Once a professor has chosen a book for your class, the link to the textbook will be available in the registration screen. From this screen you can also reach the campus bookstore to make your order online. If ordered in this way, your book can either be delivered to your home or waiting for you at the store when you come to campus. Make sure that you save receipts until the start of class since textbooks are occasionally changed at the last minute.
You can choose to purchase textbooks that are new, used or are rentals.
