License Plates

Thank you for your interest in the new CU plates and for your support of student scholarships. Below is the simple, three-step process to get your CU plates.

Step #1:

Complete either:

A minimum scholarship donation of $50 is required.

Step #2:

Approximately 2 weeks after receiving your application and scholarship donation, the Alumni Association will mail you an "Alumni License Plate Approval Certificate". This will assure the county clerk's office that you have made the appropriate scholarship donation to the Alumni Association.

Step #3:

Once you have received the approval certificate from the Alumni Association you are eligible to purchase CU plates. Take your approval certificate and registration to your local county clerk's office. Non-personalized plates will be issued at that time. You will pay the county clerk your standard license and registration fees plus a one-time $50 fee.
