Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

This school is definitely worth it, but it's not exactly cheap. If I didn't love it, I wouldn't be here.
Esia from Hudson, NH
you def get your money's worth. Great classes and all kinds of support centers ranging from computer support to the Writing Center
Christopher from Meriden, CT
The Amount you pay for what Plymouth has to offer is great. Compared to some schools I would even say it is a deal to go to Plymouth.

The five-stars is an in-state thing. Out of state, it'd probably be a star less. It costs about $20,000 a year, when you take books and other things into account; as colleges go, it's not as cheap as a community college, but it could be far worse. But for this, you get over twenty clubs, meals, plenty of FLEX-cash for use in vending machines and laundry (no messing with quarters!), computers everywhere you look, professors who go out of their way to help, and a beautiful area.
Alaina from Claremont, NH
A lot of people have had issues with trying to come up with the money to come here, it is expensive but not as expensive as other Universities in New Hampshire. Overall, I think the education you will be receiving is worth it but I don't agree with the meal plan. That's something I don't think is worth your money. But still, the education you will be receiving is worth it in the end.
