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 Ava

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


“I love that the professors are so willing to get to know me and help me out in avenues outside of their classroom. They want to see me succeed. Their excitement and energy about the subject matter is contagious.”

What is your favorite place to hang out on campus? Off campus?


“On campus my favorite place is definitely the HUB. There is always something going on there, even in the dead of winter! When I’m off campus I love hiking and with so many hikes close it is hard to pick just one favorite.”

If you could choose one favorite thing about going to school here, what would it be?


“Location: You can’t ask for better east coast skiing. With three mountains so close it is possible to go to class in the morning and head up to the mountain for some afternoon skiing. Every outdoor recreational activity you could possibly want to do is possible in Plymouth, be it hiking, rock climbing, or paddling. Being two hours outside of Boston is also key—it’s nice to have city life close too if you need a weekend escape.”
