Financial Aid

The Plymouth State University Financial Aid Team is committed to assisting qualified students who are unable to meet their entire educational expenses from their own and their family’s resources. Financial aid is awarded to students based on need or through merit scholarships recognizing academic or performing achievements.

PSU’s FAFSA Priority Filing Deadline for all undergraduate students is March 1

Please note that the IRS Data Retrieval Tool on the FAFSA is currently unavailable.  Because of this, the Department of Education is currently allowing us to review signed copies of tax returns rather than requiring tax return transcripts.  Please see your myPlymouth account for updated requirements.  You may submit either the tax transcript OR a signed copy of the tax return.

IRS Warning of a “Federal Student Tax” Scam  On May 27, 2016 the IRS released a statement warning of a scam involving a bogus “Federal Student Tax”. As provided in their statement, the scam is currently presented as “phone calls from IRS impersonators demanding payment for a non-existent tax, the ‘Federal Student Tax.’” More information on the IRS statement can be found at
