It's time to take the 'U' on the road to NC!
Join the campaign to bring the UM plate to North Carolina and Help us reach our 300 license plate goal!
The UM Alumni Association is partnering with the North Carolina Division of Motor Vehicles to issue the University of Miami license plate in the state of North Carolina. North Carolina requires a commitment of at least 300 paid applications in order to begin production of the specialty plate. Once the goal is met, paid applicants will be notified and provided with instructions on how, when and where to obtain the plate. The initial $25 investment as part of this campaign covers production costs for the specialty plate, and does not cover any regular North Carolina tag renewal costs. If paying online, the cost of the specialty plate is $30.19, which includes the $25 application fee plus a non-refundable $5.19 electronic processing fee.
Does filling out the application and submitting payment guarantee I will receive a plate?
No. By filling out the application and submitting payment, you are contributing toward the 300 paid applications goal that is required for bringing the UM plate to North Carolina.
How much is the plate?
The cost of the specialty plate is $30.19, which includes the $25 application fee plus a non-refundable $5.19 electronic processing fee. This does not cover cover renewal of North Carolina tags.
I already paid for my plate. What do I need to do?
We have your payment in the system and you are being counted toward the 300 paid applications goal. If you'd like to confirm this with us, contact email@example.com.
I’m not sure if I already paid. How can I check?
Yes. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to check our records.
Can I fill out an application but pay later?
No. In order to be counted toward the 300 paid applications goal, the $25 down payment must be received as part of this campaign.
I don't want to pay online. Is online payment the only option?
Online payment is preferred for efficiency and ease. If you prefer offline payment, fill out the paper application and submit it with your $25 check made payable to the University of Miami to:

How will I be notified when the goal is reached?

Can I purchase more than one specialty plate?
