License Plate


Show Your Alvernia Pride!  

We are proud to announce Alvernia University specialty license plates are now available!

Current students, alumni, parents, faculty and staff who are Pennsylvania residents can show their pride while they ride with the purchase of a specialty plate. The cost is $40 for a non-personalized plate or $140 for a personalized plate (cost of the plate plus the issuance fee). 

To order your Alvernia University plate, please:

1. Download the PennDOT specialty plate order form.
2. Complete Sections A and D on the official state form.
3. If the owner of the automobile is different from the person associated with the University, attach a note explaining the relationship (i.e. a parent owns the car and the son/daughter attends Alvernia).
4. Enclose a check for $40 or $140 (personalized plate) payable to Alvernia University.
5. Send your payment and completed form to:

Alvernia University
Office of Alumni and Parent Engagement
Alumni House
400 Saint Bernardine Street
Reading, PA 19607

The Alumni Office will periodically submit the applications in batches to PennDOT; processing takes approximately 4-6 weeks once the Department receives the applications. Your new license plate will be sent directly to your home from the Department of Transportation.
