Outside Scholarships

Non-Plymouth State University Scholarships and Grants

To determine if an outside scholarship/grant can be applied to your tuition bill as a pending payment, prior to the bill due date:

Notify Student Financial Services of your award.

  1. Inform Student Financial Services in writing. NOTEStudents must notify the Student Financial Services office if they receive any scholarships, grants, tuition waivers, assistantships/fellowships or other financial assistance from another source. For outside private scholarships, please provide a copy of the agency notice as it may be necessary to adjust the student’s financial package accordingly since the student’s demonstrated financial need may change. In most cases, we will allow the outside resource to fill “unmet need,” then to replace all or part of the student’s loan or work-study allocation first before adjusting any institutional need based scholarship or grant.

Please be sure the following information is included or your written notification may be rejected:

  • Your full name and student ID number
  • Scholarship name, address, contact phone number and copy of award
  • Amount of scholarship
  • Term scholarship is to be used (Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring)
  1. Mail completed form and copy of award letter(s) or certificate(s) to:

Plymouth State University
Student Financial Services
17 High Street MSC #19
Plymouth, NH 03264

or email us at psu-sfs@plymouth.edu

Please Note:

  • Once the above information has been received by Student Financial Services it will be reviewed to see if the scholarship can show as pending payment on your online bill. Scholarships contingent on grades or additional requirements by the student cannot show as pending payment. If a scholarship can show as a pending payment on a student’s bill, Student Financial Services will account for this pending payment for up to 45 days after the start of the semester. If payment is not received within this time frame, the pending payment will be removed from the online bill and it will become the student’s responsibility to pay immediately any outstanding balances in order to avoid a 1.5% late fee.
  • If a scholarship provider requires a copy of the student’s bill, it is the student’s responsibility to print their bill and send it to the scholarship provider. PSU does not send bills for student scholarships.
  • Should you receive a scholarship check directly, please be sure to properly endorse the check if necessary and forward it to Student Financial Services at the address above.
