Without Help Plate Will Become Collectors Item

Published: Nov 18, 2003

The UT license plate is in danger of becoming a collector’s item.  

 

In spring 2004, the state of Florida enacted legislation that requires a minimum of 1,000 of any specialty plate be sold each year. Sales of the UT license plate currently fall short.

 

As of February, 580 UT license plates had been sold. Cost is an additional $27 over the price of a regular tag. Florida residents can purchase by bringing their driver's license and vehicle registration to their local Florida tag agency.

 

Since the plate became available in 2003, proceeds from sales of the UT license plate have been used to help support scholarships and academic programs.

 

“Buying one of these plates is a great way to show Spartan pride and in the process help enhance the scholarships and the educational experience at the University of Tampa,” said UT President Ronald Vaughn.
