The SAGU American Indian College administration determines the use of school vehicles. Maintenance personnel will assist in caring for all school vehicles by repairing or taking the vehicles to the proper authorized dealer or shop for needed repair.

School vehicles should not be used to run personal errands. Each department is responsible for his/her own travel needs. If a department's hauling needs exceed the capacity of an automobile, a request can be submitted to the Student Development office for vehicle and trailer usage.

SAGU American Indian College is not able to provide transportation for personal reasons. No school owned vehicles may be loaned to any individual for any purpose.

Any person driving school owned vehicles must have a valid operator's license and be at least 21 years of age with 3 years of driving experience.
