Does filling out the application and submitting payment guarantee I will receive a plate?

No. However, once the UM Alumni Association receives the balance of the 300 paid applicants’ updated application, the production of NC colligate specialty license plate is guaranteed.

How much is the plate?

The cost of the collegiate specialty plate application fee is $25, in addition to the registration fee.

I already paid for my plate. What do I need to do?

Paid applicants may simply download and fill out the updated application, and mail it the University of Miami Alumni Association. University of Miami Alumni Association North Carolina License Plate Campaign P.O. Box 248053 Coral Gables, FL 33124-9872

I’m not sure if I already paid. How can I check?

Yes. Please contact us at mtejera@miami.edu and we will be happy to check our records.

Can I fill out an application but pay later?

No. The University of Miami must include a check to cover all the applications costs, when submitting the 300 updated applications to the North Carolina DVM, for production of the plate to ensue.

How will I be notified when the goal is reached?

Once the goal is met, paid applicants will be notified and provided with instructions on how, when and where to obtain the plate.

May I purchase more than one specialty plate?
