I received a ticket at a public University in Georgia from the "Auxiliary Parking Services" and not the campus police. Can that ticket go to the state or county for collection if I choose not to pay it and would it go on my driving record? What I do not know is if they hold any legal authority or if its just a University fine that typically only students must pay.
They have then ability to send the matter to collections, which I'm sure you don't want.

The ticket should not go on your driving history since it was not issued by the police. They can turn the ticket over to collections if you do not pay.

If the ticket wasn't issued by the police then the ticket should not appear on your driving record. However, if the fine isn't paid the ticket could be turned over for collections. If this happens it could adversely affect your credit etc.. If you want to contest the ticket then you should follow the procedures outlined on the ticket.
If you are a student then the ticket could adversely affect your ability to continue your UGA education. Unpaid parking tickets can cause problems when you register for school etc.. I hope this information has been helpful. Good Luck with the Ticket!
