ULM Warhawk prestige license plate now available

The Louisiana Department of Motor Vehicles is now authorized to sell the ULM Warhawk prestige license plate.

“Our desire is for each alumnus and supporter of ULM to purchase one of the new Warhawk plates,” said Tom Walpole, associate director of alumni relations. “If you have the NLU plate or the ULM bell tower design plate on your vehicle you can have that number transferred to your new Warhawk plate and then hang your old plate in your home or office. This is a great way to show your pride in ULM and help support our scholarship efforts.”

After DMV charges, the plates generate an additional $26 fee--$25 of which goes to endowed scholarships set up by the ULM Alumni Association.

The plates may be ordered with ease by calling the Louisiana DMV at (225) 925-6371 and asking for the ULM prestige license plate. Vehicle registration should be on hand when the call is made.

Individuals currently displaying a NLU / ULM plate on their vehicles may keep their same number, but they must make their order over the phone. Only those with a current prestige plate may request a special number be transferred. It will take longer to receive than by ordering a new number entirely.

Individuals may also go to:

After scrolling down to “Vehicle Services” and clicking on “Special Plates,” an individual will be instructed to enter their current license plate number. Afterwards, they will be directed to a screen giving the ULM Warhawk plate as an option. Fees will be calculated.

However an order is made, credit will be given for any unexpired registration left on the current plate.

Associate Athletic Director Doug Mosley praised alumni for their generous support, demonstrated with increased sales of Warhawk gear. “With a new mascot and the competitive success our teams have achieved this year, I think it would be safe to say we expect to top last year's [sales] record,” Mosley said. “We've enjoyed an overwhelmingly positive response to the new mascot from our alumni and fans, especially in their regard of Ace.”
