Initial Eligibility

Simply being admitted to Shippensburg University does not guarantee eligibility to participate in intercollegiate athletics for incoming freshman or transfer student-athletes. Both groups of student-athletes must meet initial-eligibility requirements established by the NCAA in order to practice and/or compete.

Continuing Eligibility

Athletes will need to maintain eligibility for practice and competition. A student-athlete will be enrolled in at least a minimum full-time program of studies leading to a baccalaureate or equivalent degree. At Shippensburg University, full-time undergraduate enrollment is 12-semester hours.
