  • Pop-up blocker must be turned off for the registration form to work correctly

Decal Placement

The decal must be placed on the outside of the rear window in the bottom left corner on the driver’s side.  Soft top/convertible vehicles are the only vehicles qualifying for an interior decal. Interior decals must be displayed in the lower corner of the passenger side front windshield. Interior decals will solely be issued through the Campus Police Department with the verification of the vehicle type.
