The college’s annual enrollment is approximately 4,100 undergraduate students. PSU offers a student-focused learning environment built on its Integrated Clusters approach (more below).
Ten scholarships of $1,000 each will be awarded to Phi Theta Kappa members. Learn more about PSU in this brief Q&A.
Are there other transfer scholarships that could be stacked with your Phi Theta Kappa award?
Yes, at the time of admission, Plymouth State awards transfer students a merit-based scholarship of up to $10,000. Additionally, PSU offers the New Hampshire Transfer Student Fund, an endowment that provides funds for New Hampshire residents transferring to Plymouth State University. Criteria includes application for or accepted current full-time student status and minimum 3.0 GPA. The PSU Office of Financial Aid will determine the award recipient. No application is required.
What other opportunities are available for transfer students at your institution to assist them in successfully transitioning from community college?
All transfer students will receive credit evaluations and degree planning and will stay in contact with their admission counselor until the student has had a chance to meet and begin work with their faculty advisor. PSU is committed to giving transfer students the same exceptional service traditional first-year students receive.
In your opinion, what is one of the most impressive things about your college?
Our Integrated Clusters approach to education. PSU partners with regional partners to provide every one of our student’s hands-on learning opportunities so that when they graduate, they have a leg up on the competition in the job market. Our students not only get an education in their discipline, but they get an education in how to work across disciplines and in the real world. No school will better prepare students for post-graduation success like PSU will.
Are there any special events or deadlines on your recruitment calendar that you would like to share?
