Office of Professional, Continuing, and Distance Education

The Office of Professional, Continuing, and Distance Education (ShipPCDE) offers a wide-variety of courses and programs, both online and off-campus, designed to meet your academic, professional, and personal goals. 

ShipPCDE believes in the value of a life-long education and works to ensure that there are opportunities for students in every stage of their professional career. 

Continuing Education Studies

At ShipPCDE, we understand the changing needs of adult learners, working professionals, and students who want to start or complete a degree. That's why we work with our expert faculty and instructors to develop credit and non-credit programs, degrees, and certificates that are accommodating to busy lifestyles via online, hybrid, blended, or off-campus learning formats.

Online Education

Online courses are designed to give students the flexibility to work their college education into their busy schedules, as they generally require no face-to-face time and can be taken from their home, office, or while on the go.

Off-Campus Education

Shippensburg University offers several off-campus programs, degrees, and certificates through the Dixon University Center in Harrisburg, Pa. Designed for working adults, these classes occur in the evenings, on weekends, or through a blend of face-to-face and online. 

Professional Training and Solutions

ShipPCDE also provides customized training and professional development programs for employers who wish to help their employees expand their knowledge and accelerate their career goals. Shippensburg faculty are highly experience subject matter experts, and continually design and update training programs based upon your organizational and professional development needs.
