UW License Plates


The History

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. In 2017, a new 8-year cycle began and gold plates are being issued. 

All UW supporters are eligible to receive the UW plate – not just alumni. $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. $30 goes back to WYODOT. 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.

An online system is available for new orders of the 2018 series gold plates or you can order and pay through this application PDF.  

The results of this program are truly outstanding. Since inception 13,000 plates have been issued throughout the state and over $1,300,000 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.

Ashley Purcella

I am writing to express my sincere gratitude for your generous scholarship offer. I was thrilled to learn of my selection for this honor and I am appreciative to be a recipient of this scholarship. An unfortunate but necessary part of acquiring an education involves paying for knowledge you will learn. I know that the funds I receive from this scholarship will allow me to continue my education and obtain the knowledge I need to know in order to enter the career path of my dreams.

Currently I am a sophomore attending Northern Wyoming Community College. This spring I will be graduating from Sheridan with my associate degree in Fine Arts before transferring to the University of Wyoming to work on my bachelor’s degree in fine arts. Thank you for your generosity and support with my future education. Your donation will allow me to work towards my dream career and I promise to work hard every step of the way.
