CCU Photo IDs are available at the centers on select days at the beginning of each semester and at Baxley Hall (100 Chanticleer Drive E., Conway) throughout the semester.

Parking decals and expiration stickers are available at the outreach centers. OLLI members are responsible for observing all University regulations and displaying their parking decal when parking on the main campus and at the Burroughs & Chapin Center for Marine and Wetland Studies. Lifelong Learners (students, instructors and volunteers) attending classes and events at, or excursions departing from, the Burroughs & Chapin Center in Conway will need to secure a valid parking decal (required Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.). Parking decals are not required at Georgetown Education Center or Litchfield Education Center.
