You can also receive multiple plates based on the size of your gift divisible by $30. NEW plates can be applied for through the Office of Alumni & Constituent Relations, online or at the motor vehicle office. Gifts may still be made to the Alumni Legacy License Plate Scholarship Fund. It is easier and quicker than ever to get your plate so do it now!

How the program works:


If you are a Kansas resident who owns or leases a passenger vehicle or truck registered in Kansas, you qualify for a Gorilla License Plate. Effective July 1, 1999 vehicles with a gross weight of 12,000, 16,000 or 20,000 pounds are also eligible for these plates. The educational license plate program only provides one plate per vehicle.


The Pitt State License Plate is valid for at least five years based on annual renewal of the plate through a gift to PSU and annual vehicle registration.


You may order a tag at any time by contacting the Office of Alumni and Constituent Relations first and then proceeding to your county office. When you get a tag in 2013 before your regular renewal time, you won't have to pay the $30 annual fee again until 2014.


To get your plate, you have two options. You can make a gift of $30 to Pittsburg State University and then apply for or renew your plates within 12 months; or you can pay $30, which is tax deductible, to the PSU Alumni Legacy License Plate Scholarship fund where $25 goes to scholarships and $5 towards an administrative fee. The Alumni Association will issue a "proof of purchase" voucher to you.
(NOTE: the $30 is NOT tax deductible if you pay your fee at the motor vehicle office or at  You must pay your $30 through our office or online at in order to receive your tax deductible gift.)

Your county treasurer will collect the annual "proof of purchase" voucher and issue your license plate upon vehicle registration fees. There is a specialty plate fee of $40 to the state. In addition, there is a one time $5.50 fee to manufacture the plate. These fees and other applicable state or county fees will be payable to the county treasurer when you pick up your plate.


The legislation creating the university license plates does not provide for personalization of the tags with words or phrases. The tag numbers are issued at random.
