The STU license plate cost is a set fee of $25 annually, plus your regular Florida license plate registration fee (varies depending on your vehicle).

How much money goes to the Annual Fund?
When you purchase a new STU license plate, and with each yearly renewal thereafter, $25 goes back directly to the STU Annual Fund, which supports student scholarships, internships, study abroad, faculty and student research, and athletics.

How do I order an STU license plate?
Anyone residing in Florida is able to obtain an STU license plate. When you renew your registration online, at your local DMV office or tag agency, simply let them know you wish to replace your current license plate with a specialty STU license plate. If it is not time to replace your existing metal license plate (replaced every ten years), you will pay a few additional dollars to switch to the specialty STU license plate.
