Academic Support Services for Student-Athletes

Shippensburg University established the Office of Academic Support Services for Student-Athletes to provide the best possible resources for enhancing the academic experiences of student-athletes. Through the coordinator, a variety of academic assistance services are available, including academic advising support, academic progress monitoring, academic counseling and referral, and assisting graduating student-athletes in researching and pursuing employment and/or opportunities for graduate education.

The Office of Academic Support Services for Student-Athletes has strong links with the Learning Center and other campus-wide programs to support the academic well being of student-athletes.

All incoming first-year student-athletes have the opportunity to voluntarily participate in the PACES program. PACES (Personal, Academic, and Career Exploration Seminar) is open to all incoming undeclared first-year student-athletes who want to gain greater insight into campus majors, possible careers paths, campus resources, technology, scheduling concerns, and wellness issues.

The office provides advisement and a variety of programming options for all student-athletes to assist with balancing the demands of academic achievement and athletics success.
