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.
