License Plate Program

Pistol Pete Car

For those UW fans who currently have the UW Brown license plate, new UW plates on a gold background are being issued in 2017. Look for a postcard from WYDOT approximately 3 months prior to your registration expiration and follow the instructions to renew and pay online. The process is simple and you will retain your current plate number. Plates will be mailed to the county listed on the plate. If you live in a different county than the county on the plate, you are responsible for making arrangements for pick-up/delivery of plates. The cost is the same as in the first cycle: $130. ($100 for scholarships and $30 to WYDOT).

An online system is now available for new orders of the 2017 series gold plates. or you can order and pay through this application

In November 2007, the Alumni Association began accepting applications for the first cycle of the University of Wyoming license plates. The plate was approved during the 2007 legislative session – the result of much advocacy work by UWAA supporters. The brown and gold plate issue was approved through 2016. 

All UW supporters are eligible to receive the UW plate – not just alumni. A one-time fee of $130 is required with the plate application. Of this fee, $100 is deposited into an account at UW that is restricted for student scholarships and programming expenditures. Not only do the plates look great on vehicles, but they are a great way to support UW students! Unfortunately, the $130 plate fee is not tax deductible.

The results of this program are truly outstanding. 5,000+ plates have been issued throughout the state and over $700,000 has been generated for student scholarships and programming. Plates are available for passenger vehicles and motorcycles registered in Wyoming. Contact the Alumni Association if you have questions about your vehicle’s eligibility for the UW plate or the availability of certain plate numbers.

2017-18 License Plate Scholarship Recipient

Adam Hartman from Powell, Wyoming

Hartman-AdamThanks to this scholarship, I will be able to devote my years to strictly learning and career preparation instead of having to supplement my education with a part time job.  As for what this scholarship will do for my career, well that is worth much more to me than money. I will be able to achieve my goal of becoming a physical education teacher and be able to teach the children of America the facts and skills they need to live healthy lifestyles and hopefully positively impact their lives in the process.

Thank you again for this blessing.  I plan on acquiring my bachelor’s and eventually master’s in Physical Education Teaching at the University of Wyoming.
