Billing Policies

Full Time vs. Part Time Status

Full Time

Any regularly-admitted undergraduate student with a course load of 12 to 17 credit hours is subject to full-time tuition and fees for that entire semester. Full-time tuition and fees will be charged to all undergraduate students identified as full time at the time of admission. Full-time undergraduate students must have at least 12 credits to be considered for full financial aid purposes.

Part Time

Students who voluntarily choose to change to part-time must file for a change of status in the Office of the Dean of Student Affairs by the end of the Add period, which is one week after Registration Day. A change to part-time status may impact your eligibility for financial assistance, on-campus housing and intercollegiate athletics. Students in good academic standing who wish to change back to full-time status must see the Registrar.

Senior Citizen Free Tuition Policy

New Hampshire residents who are 65 years of age or older are eligible for one tuition scholarship per semester for most credit courses, including graduate courses. This policy is as follows:

  • One scholarship per term
  • Applies to one course (up to three credits)
  • Not applicable to students admitted to a degree program
  • Covers only tuition (not fees)

Students are responsible for paying all related fees, including mandatory fees. No other discounts apply. Senior Citizens taking more than 4.5 credits must follow the overload guidelines outlined above.

Penalties for Late Payments

All bills must be paid (or have payment arrangement noted on the online bill) by the bill due date (see Billing Schedule above).  Students’ accounts that are outstanding after the bill due date are subject to:

  • Being assessed a monthly interest late fee of 1.5% of the unpaid amount.
  • Having their pre-registered courses dropped and being withdrawn from Plymouth State University

Tips for Success

Avoiding Hassles

You may know a student whose classes were dropped because of unpaid bills. Or you may have a friend who had to pay late fees and get signatures to add back into classes. Unfortunately, these things do happen – but they don’t have to happen. You can avoid this hassle and expense. Here’s how:

  • Pay your tuition on time or make proper arrangements with Student Account Services to have financial aid cover your bill.  Past due balances will be assessed a 1.5% late fee.
  • Do not assume that the University can hold your place in courses.
  • Be in touch with Student Account Services. Avoiding the issue won’t make it disappear

Clearing Financial Holds

Financial Holds are placed on student accounts that have a past due balance.  Holds can result in:

  • not being able to register for classes
  • not being confirmed as a student and being withdrawn from Plymouth State University
  • transcripts being held by the Registrar’s Office
  • a 1.5% late fee being assessed on your account

Don’t ignore the Hold notice or assume that financial aid (or someone else) will clear the hold for you.  Be proactive and take charge by visiting Student Account Services as soon as you are aware of your Financial Hold.

Getting Confirmed On Time

When you return to campus in Fall or Spring, you will receive notice in your HUB mailbox if you have a hold that is keeping you from being confirmed. The notice will tell you the amount of the hold and the holding office, which you should contact to clear your hold. You have about 10 days from the beginning of classes to clear holds (see “Clearing Financial Holds” above) and be confirmed. The exact date is published in the Time & Room Schedule, and you can check your status in myPlymouth or at the Registrar’s Office, Speare 205. Please note that we cannot certify your enrollment to insurance companies until you are confirmed.

If you fail to clear holds and be confirmed by the confirmation deadline, you will be dropped from classes and the process will begin to withdraw you from the University. To be reinstated, you must pay late confirmation and late add fees and secure the signature of each instructor. You are not guaranteed a seat in any class from which you were dropped.

Explanation of Fees

Course Fees

Certain courses are assessed special fees to help cover additional costs above the standard classroom instruction expenses.

Mandatory Fees

All students are required to pay the mandatory fees. These fees cover such items as health services, student activities and organizations, the student union and recreation facilities, building maintenance and upkeep, and technical equipment in computer clusters, language labs, art facilities and labs.

Overload Fees

Undergraduate students taking more than 17 credit hours are assessed a per credit overload fee based on tuition status and residency. Students will be required to sign an overload form acknowledging the extra fee at the time they register for the overload.

For the purpose of billing, a student’s load is his or her load at the end of the official add period plus any additional credits for which the student registers after that date in the semester. A student who registers for more than 17 credits or one who enrolls after the closing date of the add period is subject to an overload charge, regardless of whether the student drops a course after that date.
