Participation is completely voluntary.

Parking

Blue Ridge Community College requires that all students and staff have a valid parking decal while parked on our campus. This is to increase the safety and security of our campus by allowing us to identify who should, and should not be, on our campus.

If you received a parking decal last semester, you will not need to obtain another one until January of 2017. If you need a decal, you will need to FIRST register online for a decal. Directions are below. After you register, we will be sending out future emails regarding locations, dates and times where you may go to obtain your parking decal. There is no cost for these decals, however, you must have one displayed on your vehicle after we issue all of them in order to park on our campus. Decals must be displayed on the driver side, rear window, or bumper. If you have multiple vehicles, please sign up each of your vehicles that needs a decal online.

1. Go to my.blueridge.edu

2. When prompted for a password and username, use the same one you use for Moodle.

3. On the MyBlueRidge landing page, click on "Parking Decal" in the top right box under "Student Forms"

4. Click on "New Item" to create a new form

5. Click Save to submit the form

If you have any problems with your online registration, please call Amy Williford at 828-694-1880. Thank you and we appreciate your support in helping to keep our campus a safe and secure learning environment.
