Financial Planning

 
The PSU Financial Aid Team will answer your questions and assist you in the financial aid application process.  Please contact the PSU Financial Aid Team at any time for assistance.  PSU awards financial aid to students based upon financial need and/or merit. 

The Admissions Office determines eligibility for merit-based scholarships based upon PSU established academic standards. Talent grants are awarded based upon your audition with the Department of Music, Theatre, and Dance.

The Financial Aid Team determines need-based financial aid awards.  Financial need is based upon the cost of attendance at PSU and the results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  PSU’s Priority Deadline Date to file the FAFSA is March 1. The type of financial aid you may find in your financial aid package includes scholarships and grants, loans and campus employment (Federal Work Study).  About 91 percent of PSU students receive some form of financial assistance.

In accordance with NCAA Division III rules, Plymouth State does not offer athletic scholarships.
