PLYMOUTH, N.H. — A new Plymouth State University tuition program is providing undergraduate students from Maine and Vermont a chance to attend the school at the New Hampshire in-state tuition rate.

The North Woods Connection program combines federal, state and institutional grants and scholarships to ensure out-of-pocket tuition costs do not exceed PSU’s in-state tuition rate.

Matt Wallace, director of admissions, said students from the neighboring states make up a significant portion of the student body.

The North Woods Connection 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 spring semesters and must submit the Federal Application for Federal Student Aid each year.
