Newly redesigned Troy University tags to be available starting in January

December 1, 2016

A newly redesigned Troy University license plate will be available throughout Alabama beginning Jan. 1.

The new tag design features the Trojan sword, a key part of TROY’s identity, for the first time.

In addition, the plates now have six digits instead of five, due to new state regulations.

For more than 20 years, TROY license plates have been available at local Department of Motor Vehicles. By adding $50, drivers get an option to personalize their six-character vanity plate, and $48.75 of the tag’s cost is contributed to Troy University’s Trojan Pride Scholarships fund.

These scholarships are given to TROY’s most deserving students, according to Walter Givhan, Senior Vice Chancellor for Advancement and Economic Development.

“The Troy University license plate is a great way for alumni, fans and supporters to show their Trojan pride wherever they go,” Givhan said. “And most importantly, the funds generated by these sales help a new generation of Trojans attend TROY and experience everything the University has to offer.”

TROY ranked third among Alabama universities in license plate sale collections in the 2015-16 fiscal year, with more than 9,000 plates sold.
