Citation Appeals

If a you believe your citation was issued in error, you may submit an appeal for review.

Citation Appeal Instructions:

  • Submit your citation appeal within five (5) business days of receipt. Citation Appeals will not be accepted after five business days.
  • Make sure the citation was issued to your vehicle with your vehicle's license plate number, or to a vehicle displaying your permit.

If you are billed for a citation on a vehicle that does not belong to you, please email the citation number to appeals@unm.edu. We will attempt to verify the vehicle ownership against the New Mexico MVD database and assign responsibility accordingly.

If you are unsatisfied with the appeal response and have additional information that you believe is important and was not considered, you may submit an administrative review by re-appealing online. Administrative appeal reviews with justifications based on leniency will not be accepted. All administrative reviews are final.

All appeals must be submitted online through your Parking Account:
