Shippensburg University welcomes the applications of students from other countries. Though modest in size, our international student population represents a wealth of cultural experience from many countries. The university realizes the level of commitment that one must make to leave their families, friends, and familiar culture to pursue academic goals in the United States. That is why the university is committed to having staff who develop programs that will support this tremendous effort.

The International Programs Office is located on the first floor of McLean Hall. We help international students regarding many aspects of their stay in Shippensburg. The staff can help with immigration, travel arrangements, living arrangements, health insurance, social security, emotional and cultural adjustment, etc. International students can also list the address of this office to receive mail and packages.
