Summer Financial Aid

If you are interested in applying for aid for the summer session, you need to make sure to complete the current year FAFSA for summer 2016. You also need to complete a new FAFSA for your fall semester which is the beginning of our next school year.

After being accepted to Shippensburg, you can go to the admissions portal to activate your account and create a Ship email address. Once your account is activated, you can follow these instructions to view what aid you have received or see if you have any missing documents we need to process your aid.

When your aid is ready to view, you will get an email that your aid award is ready to view on your MyShip portal. Look for your aid notification email in April.
