How to Apply

 

Please Note: Plymouth State University will continue to review transfer applications for Fall 2014 admission after the traditional June 15 deadline, as space permits. Please contact Tony Trodella, Associate Director of Admissions, before applying, as the process is different at this time of year.

 

What is a transfer student?

Any applicant who has ever been enrolled at any post-secondary schooling (even if you took one course or did not complete a semester) is considered a transfer student.

Transfer Application Requirements

  • A completed Common Application and fee (If you are student enrolled at a NH Community College see the transfer counselor at your institution about applying via the NH Transfer Connections Program)
  • Official copy of high school transcript or GED with graduation date
  • Official copies of all college transcripts, including grades from most recent semester completed, and cumulative grade-point average (GPA) of 2.0 based on a 4.0 scale on the final transcript from the institution you are currently attending or last attended (required for consideration)
  • A well-written essay on one of the subjects listed on the application
  • Payment of the application fee ($50)

Application Deadlines

The application and all supporting credentials (see application checklist above) must be received by the following dates:

  • Fall Semester: June 15
  • Spring Semester: December 1

Candidates applying after deadlines may receive consideration only as vacancies occur. The University reserves the right to close admission prior to the above deadlines if enrollment has reached full capacity.

Financial Aid Deadline

For priority consideration, transfer students must file the FAFSA by June 15.

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.”
