Regional Student Program

 
Plymouth State University participates in a regional cooperative program administered by the New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE). The Regional Student Program enables residents of New England to attend an out-of-state public college or university within New England at reduced tuition for certain degree programs that are not available within their own state’s institutions.

Eligible programs and states include:

  • B.A. Tourism Management & Policy – CT, RI, VT
  • B.A. Humanities – MA, ME
  • B.S. Meteorology (Forecasting) – MA, ME, RI, VT
  • B.S. Public Management – CT, MA, RI
  • B.A. Theatre Arts: Music Theatre Performance – MA
  • M.Ed. Health Education – ME, VT

This program expands opportunities in higher education for New England residents by making available on an equal basis courses not commonly offered at every institution. This tends to reduce duplication of courses and to utilize more efficiently the higher education facilities of each state. Information about this program may be obtained through the Admission Office, any guidance counselor or from the New England Board of Higher Education, 45 Temple Place, Boston, Massachusetts 02111 Phone: (617) 357-9620  E-mail: rsp@nebhe.org

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.”
