Show your Cowboy Pride while contributing to McNeese State University scholarships when you purchase the official McNeese license plate. The cost of the plate is $102 in addition to your regular vehicle registration fee (charged every two years ) and $100 from each plate will go directly to support McNeese State University students. To order your plate:

  1. Ask for the McNeese State University license plate when you purchase your new automobile. Your automobile dealer can assist you at the time of purchase. This is a “prestige” plate and does not use the “specialty or personalized” license form.
  2. Or exchange your existing plate for a MSU plate, you will be given credit for your existing unexpired registration. Call the Department of Motor Vehicles at (225) 925-6371 or go to, then “Special Plate Inquiry” to determine the cost of your new McNeese plate. And then send a written request to the DMV, P.O. Box 64886, Baton Rouge, LA 70896-4866, for your McNeese plate. Note in your request that McNeese State University is the benefiting university. Include a photocopy of your certificate of registration and a check made payable to the Department of Motor Vehicles for the amount determined in step 2.
  3. Or visit the Lake Charles DMV Office, to get your McNeese license plate. McNeese plates are available at some, but not all, of the local DMV offices. Please call (225) 925-6371 to find out if the McNeese plate is available at your local DMV office. All Louisiana residents may purchase a McNeese State University prestige plate.

Remember, $100 of the $102 fee benefits the McNeese Alumni Association Scholarship Fund.
