New ISU license plate available from BMV on July 1

June 28, 2021

A newly designed Indiana State University license plate will be available July 1 from the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles. The ISU license plate is an opportunity for alumni and friends who are residents of Indiana to proudly display their Sycamore pride and show their support for ISU.

The new license plate design uses the Sycamore leaf logo and the university's updated logo font. A survey of current ISU license plate holders preferred the Sycamore leaf by a large margin. "We're delighted that a license plate with the Sycamore leaf logo will be available for alumni and friends who want to support Indiana State University," ISU President Deborah J. Curtis said. "When you see this plate, you'll know it belongs to a fellow member of the Sycamore Family."

The $40 fee includes $25 that will help support Indiana State Alumni Association initiatives and programming to keep Sycamores connected to their roots. The cost is in addition to regular vehicle registration fees and taxes.

"Purchasing or renewing an ISU license plate is a convenient way for alumni and friends to support Indiana State," said Rex Kendall, Executive Director of the ISU Alumni Association. "The new ISU plate design features a bold blue and white Sycamore leaf. Now is the time to ride with STATE pride!"

The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles issues a new metal plate every seven registration years to Indiana State University license plate holders. After seven registration years have passed since the last issuance of a metal plate, a new metal plate is issued.

Current Sycamores who have an Indiana State University plate and would like to request the new design can do so for a fee of $9.50 through the BMV.

Alumni and friends receiving an Indiana State University license plate for the first time may request an Indiana State University license plate online through the BMV website. More information regarding the policies and procedures of the Indiana BMV can be found on its website.
