PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Rhode Islanders will be able to hit the road with their Providence College license plates starting Friday.
The initial license plate distribution was held in the lobby of Schneider Arena. The plates feature the Friars logo and “Providence College” at the bottom.
Those who couldn’t make it to the distribution event can pick their license plates up at the R.I. Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV).

The cost of a PC license plate is $40 in addition to the normal vehicle registration fee, which is set by the state.
Of the $40 first-time fee, $20 will go to the DMV to cover plate production costs and state fee, and the other $20 will go to PC.
The college said it will use the $20 collected from each license plate order for the Angel Fund, which provides assistance to PC students of families with unexpected and extraordinary financial challenges so that those students can continue their studies at PC.
