Drive With Pride!
By purchasing a K-State License Plate, alumni and friends show their purple pride and invest in the university's future. The tax-deductible royalties paid on K-State License Plates have raised more than $2.6 million
for student scholarships and recognition of achievements.
K-State motorcycle license plates are now available!
To purchase a plate, visit your Kansas county DMV/treasurer's office.
Q&A for Purchasing a New Plate
• How do I get a tag?
New tags can be purchased in your county treasurer's office, where you will pay a one-time production fee of $45*, an annual tax-deductible donation of $50 that will go to the K-State Alumni Association, plus your annual tag registration fee and taxes.
*Subject to change.
• When should I order my tag?
You may order a tag at any time. However, to avoid paying the annual donation twice in one year, the best time to purchase a tag is during your annual tag renewal process.
• Who can purchase a plate?
Any Kansas resident with a car or truck registered in the state of Kansas. The vehicle weight limit is 20,000 pounds.
• What does the annual $50 donation go toward?
Funds from the License Plate program help provide scholarships and recognition for K-State students. Since the program began in 1996, alumni, fans and friends of K-State have raised more than $2.3 million.
• How are tag numbers assigned?
All plates have numbers that are assigned on a random basis. Personalization of the Powercat plates is not an option.

How to Renew an Existing Plate
You will receive your annual tags and taxes statement from the state of Kansas.
Included in the statement will be your $50 donation to the K-State Alumni Association for being a K-State plate holder.
Only one payment transaction will be needed when paying your statement (K-State Alumni Association donation and tags/taxes all in one).
Renewal will be done in the treasurer’s office, online via KS Web Tags or by mail.
Once you have renewed your tag and made your $50 donation with the county treasurer, your tax-deductible statement will be emailed by the KSU Foundation after 90 days of the transaction.
