SU offers new reduced tuition rates for high school students
Shippensburg University is offering discounted tuition rates
for Pennsylvania high school students through the new Ship Start program.
Ship Start, a new concurrent enrollment plan, allows juniors
and seniors to earn college credits in high school for $100 per credit — a 64% savings
off Shippensburg’s standard tuition rates. Credits earned count towards a
degree at Shippensburg University or can be transferred to another college.
“Studies show that high school students who take advantage
of programs like Ship Start increase their likelihood of graduating from
college by significantly reducing the time it takes them to earn their degree,”
said Jennifer Haughie,
associate vice president of
enrollment management and
dean of admissions. “We’re excited to offer this
program that will help students save money and succeed.”
All Pennsylvania public, private and homeschool students are
eligible to apply for the Ship Start program. Admission is based on proven
readiness for college-level work based on high school performance and SAT, ACT
or AP scores.
