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.

More About Erica

Why did you choose to come to Plymouth State?


“I chose Plymouth State because the University is close to my hometown and I love the look and feel the campus. Plymouth is the perfect size, it has a great business program, which is my major, and I love the surroundings around the campus, the skiing and hiking.”

What do you like best about your major/academic program?


“The thing that I like best about the business department and classes that I take is that a lot of the teachers are very friendly and approachable. Even if I am taking a class in a lecture hall the teachers still get to know you and will recognize you when they see you outside the classroom.”

What activities are you involved in outside of class?


“Outside of class I am a member and the vice president of Women’s rugby, I am a member of MAPS (which stands for Marketing Association of Plymouth State) I am an admission rep (so I give tours of campus) and I work on the Rec. Programs marketing team. At work I work with other students to maintain Rec. Programs Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and we take pictures and videos of all the events and intramural sports that Rec. Programs run.”

How have you changed since you first arrived at PSU?


“I have changed a lot since I started attending PSU. In high school I was very quiet when talking to people and not very outgoing. Since then I have become very outgoing and gained self confidence. Everything that I have done while at Plymouth State has helped to build my self confidence.”
