General Conditions and FAQs
Your purchase of a voucher is a transaction between you and the UO Alumni Association. For a proposed special registration plate to qualify for production, the UOAA must sell at least 3,000 vouchers and submit them to Driver and Motor Vehicle Services (DMV) with payment. This proposed special registration plate is not available for purchase from the DMV at this time.
If your voucher is lost, stolen, or damaged, you must contact the UOAA for a replacement.
Your purchase of this voucher is at your own risk and does not guarantee you will receive a special registration plate.
If for any reason the proposed special registration plate does not qualify for production, it is the responsibility of the UOAA—not the DMV—to refund your money.
If the proposed special registration plate qualifies for production, the UOAA will notify you when you may redeem your voucher with DMV.
The sale of the voucher is a fundraising activity of the UOAA. The DMV does not and will not control the means or manner of the sale and distribution of vouchers.
In addition to regular title, registration and plate fees, the UO specialty plate has a $40 surcharge due when you first order the plate and at each registration renewal. The surcharge is the same amount for four-year or two-year registration periods.
The total cost of a set of plates depends upon when and how a vehicle owner applies for a new set. Here are two common scenarios:
1. Plates ordered within 120 days before a vehicle’s stickers expire:
UO surcharge: $40 (also paid at each registration renewal)
Plate fee: $24 for the pair
Plate replacement fee: $5
Registration renewal: $86 (Multnomah County residents add $38)
Total: $155 ($193 in Multnomah County)
2. Plates ordered more than 120 days before a vehicle’s stickers expire:
UO surcharge: $40 (also paid at every two-year renewal)
Plate fee: $24 for the pair
Plate replacement fee: $10
Total: $74 (registration and renewal fees due prior to sticker expiration)
Once 3,000 plate vouchers have been sold, the DMV will begin the production process. Estimated time to plate fulfillment once vouchers are submitted is up to 12 months.
