Payment Options

One-Time Transfer to MySam Account

This payment option is exclusive to SHSU faculty, staff, and students who elect to have the total parking fee transferred to their MySam account managed by the Bursar's Office. For more information related to this type of transfer, please visit the Bursar's Office page.  Once this payment option is selected, it can take up to 24 hours for the fee to transfer to the respective MySam account.  Please keep in mind that while our office identifies this as a form of payment, an outstanding balance will remain on a MySam account and is expected to be paid within all time frames identified by the Bursar's Office related to fees and charges. 

Faculty/Staff Payroll Deduction

A regular employee of Sam Houston State University may elect to make payments towards Zone 1 Reserved Numbered Space, Zone 2, and/or garage contract ePermit by payroll deduction.  Temporary staff and student employees are not eligible for this benefit.  Any and all outstanding balances with SHSU must be paid prior to purchasing an ePermit, garage contract or beginning a payroll deduction plan.

All parking ePermits will be deducted over 18 pay periods for employees electing the payroll option before September 1.  For requests received after September 1, deductions will be evenly distributed across any remaining pay periods through May 31.

Employee is responsible for the full value of the ePermit or contract fee.  Should employment end during the deduction period, the Payroll Office will attempt to withhold the outstanding parking balance from any payment(s) due to employee.  Thereafter, any remaining parking balance is placed on the university receipt system pending full payment and unpaid amounts are subject to the standard process of collection for non-payment debt to SHSU.

Web Credit Card Payment

This payment option is available to all customers for payment of short-term parking, identified as event parking, daily parking, and pay by hour parking.  Web Credit Card Payments are any payment applied through our customer parking portal at or via the SHSU Parking Mobile App available on Apple iOS and Android.


Credit Card Payment at Parking Kiosk

This payment option is available at parking kiosks at the Sam Houston Parking Garage. The kiosks accept all major credit card options to include Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express.
