Please be aware, due to safety concerns following a number of reported Hoverboard fires, Plymouth State University is prohibiting the storage or use of self-balancing scooters in all PSU buildings effective immediately. Recently major airlines and the U.S. Postal Service have banned the transportation of Hoverboards on planes, and a number of cities, businesses, colleges and universities have banned the devices as well. Until the cause of these fires is fully understood and the risks have been mitigated, it is in the interest of community safety that we prohibit these devices.
We would like to remind parents and students that MARCH 1 is the PSU priority filing deadline for 2016-2017 financial aid. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) will be available January 1 and can be electronically filed online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. The Federal Student Aid PIN was replaced with the FSA ID on May 10, 2015. The new FSA ID consists of a user-created username and password to electronically access personal information on Federal Student Aid Web sites, including FAFSA on the Web. Both parent and student may use their FSA User ID created at https://fsaid.ed.gov/npas/index.htm to electronically sign the FAFSA. Confirmation from FAFSA will be forwarded to the email address provided on the FAFSA once it is submitted. For direct links to the FAFSA, the FAFSA PIN and answers to your questions, visit PSU’s Financial Aid website at www.plymouth.edu/finaid/.
If your family’s income data is not available by the March 1 deadline, please use estimated income to complete the FAFSA and update your actual information when it is available. Late filers may only be eligible for Federal Pell, Federal Direct Loans, Parent PLUS Loans, Alternative Loans, and some state programs.
Students should read all e-mails sent to their PSU e-mail address. All financial aid information specific to their account is accessible through myPlymouth under the Services tab. Please check often for any unsatisfied requirements or active messages about additional information that may be required to process your financial aid award.
For most families, the holidays are a time to connect with loved ones and reflect on all that we have to be grateful for, but for some, it can be a challenging time. Helpful support resources for families can be found at this link to the Michael L. Fischler Counseling Center.
If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact the Office of the Dean of Students at (603) 535-2206.
