The CWRU collegiate plate is available for passenger vehicles and non-commercial trucks. You can even get the special CWRU plate if you lease your vehicle. You may exchange your current plates for collegiate plates any time between registration periods. Credit will be given for registration and permissive taxes already paid, or order the specialty license plates when your current plates are due for renewal.

Twenty-five of the $35 cost for collegiate plates qualifies as a charitable gift to Case Western Reserve University and provides needed financial aid for students. Personalized plates are also available for an additional cost.
