Graduate Fall/Spring Registration Information
Admission to Graduate Class
In order to schedule graduate classes, you must be admitted to graduate study at Shippensburg University. Prospective degree students must complete an application form, submit a $45.00 application fee, and have an official copy of their transcripts sent. Inquiries for admission to a degree or certification program should be directed to the Admissions Office.
Non-degree graduate students are required to pay a $15 application fee. Copies of undergraduate transcripts are not required. For more information, visit /pcde/non_degree/ or call the Office of Professional, Continuing & Distance Education at (717) 477-1502.
Student Identification Cards
Graduate students must have valid student ID cards in order to register online and use the library and computer labs. Cards are issued at no charge by the University Police at the Reed Operations Center. ID cards are permanent; a fee will be charged to replace a lost ID.
How to Register
Review program requirements in the graduate catalog. Review the courses being offered during the term. If possible, make an appointment with your academic advisor to discuss your schedule. Your advisor can help you plan a schedule that will meet the requirements for your degree or certification program.

Waitlist for Classes
If a course is closed and you must take the course for the upcoming semester to fulfill requirements of your program of study, use myShip to sign up for class waitlists. If a course is restricted or if there is an unmet pre-requisite, you will need to contact the department office under which the course resides to explore your options for obtaining the necessary override(s) before you will be able to be added to the waitlist for the course. To sign-up on the waitlist for a class follow these directions:
- Login to myShip.
- Click on the Student tab.
- Click on My Academics.
- Select Add or Drop Classes from the Registration Tools menu.
- Select the appropriate term.
- Select or search for the class for which you would like to register.
- If the class is closed, it will be indicated by “C.” Take note of the course registration number (CRN) for that class.
- Manually enter the CRN in the Add Classes Worksheet section of the Add or Drop Classes form.
- Select Submit Changes.
- Under Action, select Waitlist.
- Select Submit Changes to submit your waitlist request.
- Verify the course appears as a waitlisted course.
If you no longer need a course for which you have waitlisted, you may use the Add or Drop Classes form to drop the class. Signing up on the waitlist does NOT guarantee you a seat in the course. You will be notified by email if space becomes available in the class and you are being moved from the waitlist to the class. If there is no waitlist for a course you feel you must take, contact your program coordinator to discuss your options.
You will be billed according to the number of credits for which you are registered. Please note the fees presented under the Tuition link supersede any other published fees.
Bills are due by the date provided on your online bill. Bills returned after the billing due date will be charged a $100.00 late fee. If you do not pay or clear your bill by the billing due date, your schedule will be canceled.
Graduate students who wish to park or operate a vehicle on campus must have a current student parking decal. These are available from the University Police in the Reed Operations Center. Failure to register a vehicle can result in fines. Students are reminded to observe parking regulations and only park in designated locations. For more information, please call (717) 477-1444.
The University Bookstore is located in the Ceddia Union Building.
If classes are canceled because of the weather, announcements will be made on area radio and television stations. Official information about University closings can be obtained by calling Hotline at 717-477-1200. Please do not call the Registrar's Office.
