How to Apply


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 PSU Transfer Application, OR Common Application and fee, OR NH Transfer Connections Application (available to you if you are currently enrolled at a NH Community College)
  • 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

Application Deadlines

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

Please note: We will continue to accept qualified applications from commuting transfer students for the fall 2015 semester as space permits.
  • 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.

Deposit Deadlines

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

Please note that while the application deadline is June 15, that date is also the priority deposit deadline. In order to guarantee on-campus housing, your deposit must be paid no later than June 15.

We recommend that all transfer applicants intending to live on campus submit a completed application (your application and all necessary official transcripts) to the Admissions Office no later than June 1.

Any students submitting transfer applications after June 15 will be considered for admission but will not be guaranteed housing.

“I think the biggest thing that Plymouth State helped me develop was my leadership skills. I’ve run clubs, I’ve done events, I’ve done volunteer management, I really feel I’m in control of my life. And I can help lead other people to be as motivated and hard working as I am.”
