Important Financial Aid Information for New Hampshire Students

June 23rd, 2011 by Adam

Students and families,

The New Hampshire legislature has passed a budget that reduced the state allocation to the University System of New Hampshire (USNH) for next year.  As a result, the Board of Trustees has approved a tuition increase of $710, to be added to PSU’s original 2011-2012 estimated billed costs for all New Hampshire students only.

PSU is committed to assisting our neediest New Hampshire families impacted by this decision, and the PSU Financial Aid Team will be identifying possible additional resources. PSU will be unable to offset the tuition increase for all New Hampshire students, of course, but we will work to help students be able to attend PSU.  Within the next two weeks, we will notify families by e-mail (student campus and parent FAFSA e-mail addresses) of any additional resources we have been able to identify.

As all of us work through these challenging times, the PSU Financial Aid Team is here to assist you with your questions and concerns. We encourage you to contact our office should you need assistance in identifying additional funding options.
