Regional Student Program

Plymouth State University participates in a regional cooperative program administered by the New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE). The Regional Student Program enables residents of New England to attend an out-of-state public college or university within New England at reduced tuition for certain degree programs that are not available within their own state’s institutions. If a student changes into an eligible program after initially not being eligible, they will be assessed the NEBHE rate that is currently in effect for the term in which they become eligible.

Eligible Plymouth State programs are offered with out-of-state merit-based scholarship, plus an additional $3,000 tuition waiver.

If a student changes into an eligible program after initially not being eligible, they will be assessed the NEBHE rate that is currently in effect for the term in which they become eligible. If a student switches into a NEBHE eligible program mid-semester, the tuition rate will not be impacted until the following semester. Likewise, if a student switches out of a NEBHE eligible program, the tuition rate will not change until the following semester. In the case of a student changing their state of residency, they will not become eligible or ineligible for the NEBHE discount until one year documented residency in the NEBHE eligible state. This program expands opportunities in higher education for New England residents by making available on an equal basis courses not commonly offered at every institution. This tends to reduce duplication of courses and to utilize more efficiently the higher education facilities of each state.
