New Golden Eagles License Plate Now Available
HATTIESBURG, Miss. -- The University of Southern Mississippi is pleased to share that our new affinity license plate is now available! The plate features our new Golden Eagle logo and replaces previous versions featuring the older eagle logo and the University seal.
We invite you to continue demonstrating your Golden Eagle pride by becoming one of the first owners of this new plate. Anyone can purchase the plate, regardless of their current tag renewal date, and approximately 60 percent of the annual affinity fee goes directly to help fund programs at Southern Miss.
Our new Golden Eagle logo is fast becoming recognized across the country as a symbol of what it means to be a Golden Eagle, and we are excited to have this opportunity to refresh and strengthen our brand by featuring this new logo. If you currently have an older version of the University's former affinity plates, we ask that you consider replacing it with the new plate to help us move toward having one Southern Miss symbol in the marketplace.
For your convenience, the following rate structure has been provided by the Department of Motor Vehicle Licensing. Additional information about the plate is available on the Mississippi Department of Revenue's website.
-- Current Southern Miss affinity plate owners who choose to upgrade their plate during their regular renewal month will pay the standard $51 annual fee and a $2.50 mailing fee.
-- Current Southern Miss affinity plate owners who choose to upgrade their plate before their regular renewal month will pay a $10 production fee and a $2.50 mailing fee at the time of purchase, as well as the standard $51 annual fee during their regular renewal month.
