    Net Price Calculator

    If you are still a year or two away from college, you may want to do some early planning to determine what college may cost. The NET PRICE CALCULATOR will give you an additional estimate of the net cost of Shippensburg (total costs less aid) based on previous years' aid awards. This is an estimate only, and is not a binding agreement.

    For information on colleges and universities across the country, use the "College Navigator" hosted by the National Center for Education Statistics at https://nces.ed.gov/collegenavigator/.


    To determine how much financial assistance you need to attend Shippensburg University, the Financial Aid Office performs a "need analysis" based upon confidential information you provide in the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). These applications are available either from your high school guidance office or from the Financial Aid Office. This analysis takes into consideration your own assets, any supplemental income you earn, and any scholarships or awards other than those administered by the university. It considers your family's income, debts, assets, number of dependents, number of family members presently attending college, and other factors that affect your family's ability to help pay for your education.

    Billing, Refunds and Scholarships

    The Student Accounts Office is responsible for billing, disbursement of refund checks, College Savings Accounts, scholarships received from outside sources, meal plan changes, etc. 

    Current information is maintained on the Student Accounts website. Contact them at (717) 477-1211 or e-mail the office at studentaccts@ship.edu.
