Full-Time Undergraduate (12–18 credits)

A student registered for between 12 and 18 credits is considered full-time. Students wishing to take more than 18 credits must get approval from their academic advisor. Tuition for credits above the full-time range is billed at the part-time (per-credit) rate.

Non-Resident Undergraduate Student Tuition

Shippensburg University's Out-of-State Tuition Advantage Program offers a reduced tuition rate for some non-resident students. Non-resident undergraduates who qualify for reduced tuition are those who:

  • Transfer under a DUAL ADMISSION program from a participating COMMUNITY COLLEGE
  • Earn a 1200 SAT or BETTER (Critical Reading + Critical Math) or graduate in the TOP 10% of High School class
  • Select a STEM/STEM EDUCATION MAJOR (Science, Technology, Engineering or Math)

You can find out more about reduced tuition rates here.
