Welcome International Students

You're smart, motivated, and ready to explore.  Take advantage of the incredible experience and prepare yourself for the global marketplace through an education at Shippensburg University!

 Why Study one of Shippensburg's nationally and internationally accredited programs?


You are invited to become a member of the "Ship" community.  From the moment you step on campus, you feel you're "among family."  

We offer personal attention, strong support, and a challenging education.  Shippensburg is big enough where it counts- with top-notch faculty and facilities- and small enough so you'll be known for yourself and your strengths.                        


We foster an organizational culture that celebrates multiculturalism and diversity.  

We work to create an environment that allows everyone the opportunity to better understand diversity and civic responsibilities.  We value human understanding, especially the appreciation and awareness of cultural, racial, and gender differences.
