For those on campus who have no car but need to renew their license or visit a Secretary of State office for any other reason have the opportunity to visit a mobile office on campus.
The Secretary of State Mobile Office will be set up for any student, faculty member, staff or community member starting at 9:30 a.m. until 3 p.m today in the Old Main Room of the Bone Student Center.
According to Erin Watts, marketing coordinator at the Bone Student Center, Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White encourages anyone in the area to use this office to his or her advantage.
“The partnership between the Secretary of State’s Office and Illinois State University is a great example of how my office can work with institutions to make transactions more convenient on campus,” White explained. “I encourage students, faculty and staff to purchase [an] ISU license plate to support a student scholarship fund as well as express pride for the school.”
In addition to getting drivers licenses renewed, the mobile office is also used for other community members’ needs.
According to Watts, individuals can renew, replace or correct their driver’s license or state ID card, invest in vehicle stickers and other license plates, register for a vehicle title, organ and tissue donation, purchase parking placards for persons with disabilities and more.
This mobile office is open to the public. Costs vary depending on what an individual needs.
“Typical driver and vehicle services fees apply. Acceptable forms of payment include personal checks, cash, MasterCard, American Express and Discover credit and debit cards,” Watts explained.
The mobile office always has a good number of people in attendance within the ISU community, she said.
“The Secretary of State Mobile Office has been coming to the Bone Student Center since 2007,” she added. “Typically they come seven to eight times each year.”
