Proceeds for license plate sales benefit “Tagged for Success” scholarship program

LIVINGSTON, Ala.—The University of West Alabama has launched a new design for its collegiate license plate available to Alabama residents. The design, which will be available August 1, features red and white University branding, including a sleek and fierce red and white tiger profile. Proceeds from sales of the plate benefit a scholarship program at UWA.

The cost of the collegiate plate is an additional $50, of which $48.75 goes into the UWA National Alumni Association’s “Tagged for Success” scholarship to help students succeed at UWA.

UWA’s Tagged for Success program has funded upward of $200,000 in scholarships since its inception. To be considered for a Tagged for Success scholarship, a student must be a junior or senior Alabama resident with a 3.0 or higher GPA.

Pre-numbered plates are available, or drivers can choose to personalize their inscription with up to six numbers or letters. There is no additional charge for personalization.

Supporters and alumni often personalize their plates with their class year, a college nickname, greek or social affiliations, athletic accomplishments, and more.

A personalization can be reserved for up to five business days using the Alabama Department of Revenue’s Motor Vehicle Title Registration & Insurance Portal, MVTRIP. To begin a reservation, users can access MVTRIP by visiting revenue.alabama.gov, selecting PROS (Plate Reservation and Ordering System) under the reservation section.

UWA’s collegiate license plate is available to Alabama passenger vehicle and motorcycle owners. UWA supporters can get the plate when registering a vehicle or renewing registration at the local tag office in any Alabama county that issues license plates. No additional documentation is required aside from materials required for a standard plate.
