Mississippi State University


Mississippi State University affinity license plates can now be purchased in four states across the South.

Mississippi State car tags are now available in Alabama!

The MSU license plate is available for pre-commitments in the state of Alabama. We must reach 1,000 pre-commitments by April 30, 2015. Alabama residents wishing to purchase a pre-commitment for the distinctive license plate, may visit https://precommit.mvtrip.alabama.gov and complete the online commitment to purchase application (select individual application option), and pay the $50 additional fee.

Please note that applicants will continue to use their current, valid Alabama license plate (no registration changes are made at this point in the process).

Once the required number of commitments is received, the Comptroller will disburse the funds collected in accordance with Alabama law. The new license plates will be ordered, manufactured and delivered to the office of licensing officials. The Department of Revenue will notify licensing officials, the sponsoring organization, and supporters who purchased pre-commitments of the expected availability date of the plates.

After the license plates are available in the licensing offices, applicants who purchased pre-commitments will present the original commitment to purchase receipt to the license plate issuing official. If the applicant desires to obtain the license plate before the current plate has expired, the current license plate must be returned to the issuing official for audit purposes. If the license plate is expired, it is retained by the applicant. Applicable issuance fees must be paid to the issuing official before a license plate will be issued.
