Graduate Fall/Spring Registration Information
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.
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.
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.
To register through myShip, follow the registration instructions. After you select a course for which you want to register, select SUBMIT to register for the course. If you do not select SUBMIT, your registration will not be submitted. Submission of your registration for a course will return results. Be sure to review these results.
You may register for courses any time the system is available from the start of registration through the end of the schedule adjustment period for the course(s) for which you are registering. If a course is restricted or at capacity, contact the department office under which the course resides to explore your options for registering for the course. Department and directory information is available via links on the Home page in myShip.
As a graduate student, you may register for a maximum of 11 credits for each summer term and 12 credits for the fall. If you wish to register for more than the maximum allowable credits, contact the department office under which your program is located via phone, e-mail, or in person to obtain authorization.
Master’s degree Counseling Students ONLY: The Counseling Department will provide you with your assigned Alternate Personal Identification Number (PIN) prior to the beginning of registration.
Should you decide not to attend or to stop attending a class, it is your responsibility to officially drop or withdraw from the class, whether or not you have ever attended that class. If you do not attend and do not drop or withdraw, your name will remain on the class list until the final grading period, you will receive a grade of "F" for the class, and you will be charged for the class.
You may drop or withdraw from all summer classes through myShip. You may drop or withdraw from all but your last fall class through myShip. To withdraw from your last class, graduate students should complete the online form at http://www.ship.edu/Registrar/Withdrawal_Request_Form/.
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:
- Log in to myShip.
- Click on My Academics under the Student tab.
- Select Registration (Add, Drop or Withdraw from Classes) from the Registration Tool menu.
- Select Registration (Add, Drop or Withdraw from Classes).
- Select the appropriate term.
- Search for the class for which you would like to register.
- If the class is closed, it will be indicated by a status of “FULL.” It will also indicate if there are Waitlist seats available.
- If Waitlist seats exist, select Add to add the course to your summary.
- Select Waitlist from the Action dropdown.
- Select Submit.
- Verify the course shows up as a waitlisted course.
If you no longer need a course you have waitlisted, you may use the Registration (Add, Drop or Withdraw from Classes) functionality 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.
Check for holds. If a hold that prevents registration has been placed on your record, the appropriate office must clear the hold from your record before you will be permitted to register.
Contact the Technical Support Center in the Ezra Lehman Library at 717-477-4357 or firstname.lastname@example.org for technical assistance. Contact your advisor or department office if you are unable to register for a course needed for your program of study. If you do not have an advisor, contact your department office or academic dean’s office.
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.
