Funds must be guaranteed for international students studying in the United States. Applicants must complete an I-134 Affidavit of Support form available on the US Citizenship and Immigration services website, and/or provide appropriate financial documentation. Examples of acceptable financial documents include: current bank statements, certificates of deposit, notarized letters from bank officials.

For the purpose of assessing tuition and fees, each student shall be classified as a New Hampshire resident or a non-New Hampshire resident. A person shall be classified as a New Hampshire resident if she or he has resided in the state of New Hampshire for purposes other than attending an educational institution for 12 months immediately preceding the student's entry or re-entry. Physical presence for this entire 12-month period need not be required as long as the conduct of the individual, taken in total, manifests an intention to make New Hampshire the permanent dwelling place. Reside, residency, or resident shall refer to domicile, i.e., a person's true, fixed and permanent home, or place of habitation, where she or he intends to remain permanently.
Proof of residency will be decided based on all facts submitted with qualitative rather than quantitative emphasis. The burden of proof rests on the student seeking classification as a New Hampshire resident. Any student who previously attended Plymouth State University, paid out-of-state tuition, and now claims New Hampshire residency should contact the Registrar to have resident status verified prior to registering for any coursework.
Misrepresentation in, or omission of, any evidence submitted with respect to any fact which, if correctly or completely stated would be grounds to deny classification as a New Hampshire resident, shall be cause for exclusion or expulsion from, or other disciplinary action by, Plymouth State University.
Link to the NH Residency Confirmation Form will be emailed on submission of application.

foreign country, please select 'Foreign State'.
