F&M License Plate for Pennsylvania Residents
If you are the registered owner of a vehicle in Pennsylvania, have a Pennsylvania driver’s license and are a current student, alumnus or alumna, parent, friend or staff member of F&M, you can apply for an F&M plate. As with other PennDOT specialty plates, F&M’s are manufactured using standard PA plate design colors (blue, white and yellow). The Franklin & Marshall name appears across the bottom of the plate, while Benjamin Franklin and John Marshall appear on the left side of the plate.
How to Order Your Plate
- Obtain an application form by downloading the MV-904SP form below or by calling the
Office of Alumni Relations at 1-866-925-5500.
- Enclose a check, money order, or credit card authorization form for $32, payable to Franklin & Marshall College. The cost for the plate is a one-time fee of $32. This fee is in addition to your yearly registration fees.
- Send your payment and application form to:
- You can only get a Franklin & Marshall plate through the College, not from a PennDOT
location. Do not send your application to PennDOT; doing so will delay delivery of
your license plate.
- You may transfer your Franklin & Marshall plate to a new vehicle.
- Your Franklin & Marshall plate can be personalized for an additional fee of $128.
- You will not receive a refund if you cancel your request after the order is placed.
- You cannot receive a specific plate number; numbers are issued in sequence as orders
are processed. We regret the inconvenience.
- Special organization plates are restricted to passenger vehicles, trucks, and motor
homes with a registered gross weight of not more than 9,000 pounds.
- You cannot get plates for motorcycles and trailers, as they do not qualify for special
organization registration plates.
- If you have any questions regarding the F&M Specialty License Plate Program, contact Alumni Relations at 1-866-925-5500.
