License Plate Program

(This design will be placed on the current State of Missouri license plate design. Your own special message will be printed in place of “PIRATE.”)

Park University specialty license plates are personalized plates available to registered Missouri vehicles only, including:

  • passenger vehicles
  • trucks (up to 18,000 lbs.)
  • motorcycles
  • RVs

Missouri does not offer personalized plates for trailers.  

The license plates are categorized as “State of Missouri Personalized Plates.” They may contain up to six alphanumeric characters (or up to five alphanumeric characters plus one space, hyphen or apostrophe). With the proper documentation, they can be ordered through your local license office or online. Check to see if your personalized configuration is available. 

To be eligible to order a Park University License Plate you must make a minimum donation of $25 per year to the Park University Alumni Association’s Legacy Scholarship (The Marlowe Sherwood Memorial Scholarship Fund) or any other Park fund of your choice. If you have already made a donation of at least $25 in the last six months and would like an authorization form please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at

Please note:  If you are registering your car on a biennial basis, please indicate so on the application. You should double your donation ($50) on the online application in order to cover both years of your vehicle registration.
