Pre-order for West Virginia State University License Plates Now Available

INSTITUTE, W.Va. – Alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends of West Virginia State University (WVSU) can now pre-order a collegiate branded license plate from the West Virginia Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV). 

The license plate contains WVSU’s Stinger mascot and the university’s name on a black and gold themed plate. The plates are only available for West Virginia residents. The design is not available for handicap, motorcycle, or RV license plates.

The DMV requires a minimum of 250 pre-orders by April 21, 2023, for the production of the license plates to commence. They are priced at $95, which includes the tag fee and a small, non-refundable processing fee.

There is no donation to the university included in the purchase. Individuals can purchase as many plates as they wish; however, plates need to be purchased and connected with a vehicle. 

To pre-order, individuals must fill out a form from the DMV and return it to WVSU’s Office of Alumni Relations.

The forms may be emailed to alumni@wvstateu.edu, or they can be mailed to Office of Alumni Relations, P.O. Box 1000, East Hall 100, Institute, WV 25112. The form can be found online at https://connect.wvstateu.edu/WVSULicensePlate/order.

Those who pre-order a plate will be mailed a letter from the state about their license plate(s) and take that letter to the local county clerk’s office to complete the process, pay any necessary fees, and receive the plate. It is anticipated they will be available by the end of 2023 if enough pre-orders have been successfully completed.
The plates will not be mailed to residences.

For further questions about the license plates, please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at alumni@wvstateu.edu.
