Simply make a minimum donation of $25, ($50 for two years), to the Northwest Fund. Be sure to note that you would like to receive a collegiate license plate form.

Once your donation has been processed, you will receive an Emblem Use Authorization Statement from the Northwest Foundation.

New Plate Request

The completed Emblem Use Authorization Statement (EUAS) must accompany your application (Missouri Form 1716) and a $15 state personalized plate fee, ($30 for two years), and be submitted to the Motor Vehicle Bureau, 301 West High St - Room 370, PO Box 569, Jefferson City, MO 64105-0569. If your requested plate configuration is not available, you may submit additional configuration choices with your paid receipt or you may apply for a refund of the application fee. If your requested plate configuration is available, your plates will be ordered (turnaround time may be six to eight weeks.) A notification letter will be mailed to you when your plates are available for pickup at your designated license office. Additional fees to transfer the plate to your vehicle will be required at that time. More information is available at

Plate Renewal

Just take the completed Emblem Use Authorization Statement (EUAS), the $15 state personalized plate fee, ($30 for two years), your regular state license renewal application, and the standard state renewal fee to a Missouri Department of Revenue office or license bureau near you.
