TAMPA – For the first time in nearly 15 years, drivers around the state who support the University of South Florida will have a new look for their license plates.

Drivers will immediately notice USF’s new plates are green, as opposed to the primarily white design of the old plates, with a larger Bulls logo on the left side and the university’s name printed in gold at the bottom.

The launch of the updated design coincides with USF’s recent historic designation as a Preeminent State Research University, representing a new era for students, faculty, staff and alumni.

The new design aims to build on the approximately 15,000 drivers who currently have USF specialty plates. For each purchase, USF receives $25 to support scholarships, student programs and other alumni engagement activities.

The new plates will be available in all tax offices across Florida in August, however exact dates will vary by location.
