Online account information is available for current students to view 24 hours a day/7 days a week via the myPlymouth portal. Here students (and those granted Bill View under Family Access) can see a complete summary of their charges and payments by term.
Since it is the student’s responsibility to ensure that his or her bills are paid on time, the monthly billing reminder will be sent to the student’s plymouth.edu e-mail account and to those granted Bill Notification under Family Access.

Full Time vs. Part Time Status
Full TimeAny 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 TimeStudents 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.
Penalties for Late PaymentsAll 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- Having their pre-registered courses dropped and being withdrawn from Plymouth State University.
Senior Citizen Free Tuition PolicyNew 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)
Avoiding HasslesYou 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 get back into classes. Unfortunately, these things do occur – 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 to 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 HoldsFinancial 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
