The UNC License Plate is also a great gift idea for your favorite Bear.  Although only available for vehicles registered in the state of Colorado, you can make a donation in honor of someone as a graduation, holiday or any special occasion gift. Just note the name of the title-holding driver when you make your gift online. Have questions? Contact the alumni relations office at (970) 351-2551 or alumni@unco.edu

UNC License Plate

Out of State Vehicles

The UNC license plate is only available for vehicles registered in the State of Colorado. But, you can still show your pride with automobile accessories from the UNC Bookstore

 Drive with Bear Pride
3 Steps


Scholarship Donation

First, make a $50 scholarship donation to the UNC Colorado License Plate scholarship fund. 100% of your donation is directed to supporting a current student scholarship.  You may donate online or in person when you visit University Advancement in Carter Hall .


Redeem your Certificate

Then, the alumni association will email you a signed group special license plate certificate. Take the certificate to your county DMV office, pay a one-time $50 special plate fee to the state, and if you are up for renewal, your standard vehicle registration fee.


Drive with Bear Pride

The state will mail your new UNC License Plates and vehicle registration information to you.  Swap out your old plates for your new set and you'll be ready to drive with Bear Pride!

Don't forget to visit the UNC Bookstore for more Bear branded items.
