License Plate Program

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.

2015- 2016 License Plate Scholarship Recipient

Weston Fox from Antioch, Illinois Fox,Weston

Dear License Plate Funded Scholarship Committee,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for selecting me to receive a scholarship from the UW Alumni Association. Your contribution and support for my future education at the University of Wyoming is greatly appreciated. When given the opportunity to attend college in the Rockies and become a Wyoming Cowboy, I could not resist. I am very excited to move from Illinois to Wyoming this fall.

I plan to obtain a bachelor's degree in civil engineering and become a professional engineer. In attending the University of Wyoming, I will put my boots on and pursue my engineering degree with cowboy ethics: honesty, confidence, and hard work. Thank you for awarding me this scholarship!
