Plymouth State to Ease Tuition for Neighbors

Recognizing the unique benefit that students from neighboring states to the east and west bring to its campus, Plymouth State University (PSU) has created the North Woods Connection. The tuition program provides undergraduate students from Maine and Vermont the opportunity to attend PSU at the NH in-state tuition rate.

PSU’s North Woods Connection program combines federal, state, and institutional grants and scholarships (including merit awards, need-based awards and tuition waivers) to ensure out-of-pocket tuition costs do not exceed PSU’s in-state tuition rate.

“We created the North Woods Connection to pave an easier road for students from Maine and Vermont to attend Plymouth State University,” said Matt Wallace, director of admissions. “Students from our neighboring states make up a significant portion of our student body and we are thrilled to be able to extend this opportunity to them and their families. Our states’ close proximity and cultural similarities make Plymouth State University a wonderful choice for students from all three states.”

The program is open to incoming first-year undergraduate students, beginning with the upcoming 2020-2021 academic year. To be eligible, students must be enrolled full-time in an undergraduate program for both the fall and the spring semesters, and must submit the Federal Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year.
