New Student Orientation

Orientation is key to your successful journey at Shippensburg University. It is held on campus prior to the beginning of the fall and spring semesters. Besides receiving your first-semester class schedule, orientation is where you learn your way around campus, find out about all the amazing activities at Ship, and make new friends. We hope you’re getting excited about beginning your collegiate journey with us! At Ship, we are committed to creating an engaging learning environment. Here you will find many people who will help you along the way, and many resources are available to assist you in reaching your goals.

If you have any questions, contact the Office of Admissions at (717) 477-1231 or orientation@ship.edu.

    Summer 2020 Orientation

    Summer Orientation is for students who start classes during the summer or fall semesters. We have been actively following the impact of COVID-19 in the United States and abroad. In following state and federal guidelines to curb the spread of COVID-19, we are moving from a face-to-face orientation program to a virtual format. The virtual program will just be for incoming students (Don't worry parents & families, we are hosting a separate parent & family virtual orientation program in late July). Students will receive an Orientation Portal link for their program that will include the schedule and links needed to attend the program.
