Resources for Parents & Families

Happy Thanksgiving!

We hope that you enjoy the time with loved ones and that while your students are home, you have a chance to connect with them about their semester and activities in Plymouth. We have provided some information below that may be helpful to discuss with your student.

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 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 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

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, Thanksgiving is a time to connect with loved ones, reflect on all that we have to be grateful for and feast, but for some, it can be a challenging time. Helpful support resources for families can be found at this link to the Counseling and Human Relations Center.
