Refunds for purchasers not staying the second semester will be made if permit is returned prior to close of registration of second semester. Permits are available in the Department of Public Safety Office located in Gardner Hall, Monday through Friday. It is best to call 217.245.3111 first to ensure someone is available to issue you your permit.
