Full- and Part-Time Undergraduate Tuition:
Fall 2015 - Spring 2016

Full-Time Undergraduate (12 – 18 credits) 

A student is considered full-time when the total number of credits they have registered for is between 12 and 18 credits. Some students may opt to take more than 18 credits after getting approval from their academic advisor. Additional undergraduate tuition is billed at the part time (per credit) rate for any credits above the full time range.

Non-Resident Undergraduate Student Tuition

Shippensburg University participates in the Out-of-State Tuition Advantage Program, which allows non-resident students to pay a lower out-of-state tuition. The standard non-resident (non-PA) tuition rate is 225% of the resident (PA) rate. Non-resident students have several opportunities to receive a reduced tuition rate. Non-resident undergraduates who qualify for reduced tuition include:

  • 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.
