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 Dan

Why did you choose to come to Plymouth State?


“I chose to come to Plymouth State because of its beautiful location at the crest of the White Mountains. The small town and tight community that Plymouth offers also appealed to me! Every time I come back to Plymouth it is as if I can take a step back and be at ease…it’s like coming home.”

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


“I love being a part of the education program at Plymouth State. Since my teachers are teaching us how to teach, I feel that they truly understand the entire student/ teacher dynamics; what works and what does not. For example, it is rare that I ever have to take a formal exam, because my teachers understand the advantages to hands on approaches and the different learning styles of their students.”

How have you changed since you first arrived at PSU?


“I feel that I have fully discovered who I am and the person I strive to be. It was never until I went to Plymouth that I started counting down the days until summer ended!”
