NCSSM License Plate

Applying for an NCSSM Specialty License Plate

Did you know that NCSSM is one of only three schools in the UNC System without its own specialized North Carolina license plate? (The other two are UNC Asheville and the North Carolina School of the Arts.)

If you would like to show your school spirit by lending your support to NCSSM’s bid for its own specialty license plate, please complete the following two (2) steps by no later than Feb. 1, 2024. (If you submitted an application and payment in 2022 or 2023, your application has been saved and you do not need to resubmit a new application at this time.)

**Please note: The NCSSM Specialty Plate mockup and two-letter designation shown may differ from the final product as the artwork is subject to change pending approval of NCDMV and other state entities. The plate will have an NCDMV-determined two-letter designation as either a prefix or a suffix.**

License Plate Updates

In early February 2024, NCSSM resubmitted its application for a specialty license plate to the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles. The NCDMV will review this application and by March 15, 2024, will submit to the N.C. General Assembly a report that identifies NCSSM as having applied for a special registration plate.
