***New International Students***
Welcome to SHIP!!!
I would like to welcome you to the United States
of America, to Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, and to Shippensburg
University. Congratulations on your acceptance. I am so pleased
that you will be joining the Ship family for what will be an exciting educational
and cultural experience for you. Please know that the Center for Global
Education and its staff are interested in supporting you through your degree
and time spent with us at SHIP! Come into our office, located in Ceddia
Union Building Room 221, if you have questions or concerns.
Shippensburg University welcomes the applications of students from other countries. Though modest in size, our international student population represents a wealth of cultural experience from many countries. The university realizes the level of commitment that one must make to leave their families, friends, and familiar culture to pursue academic goals in the United States. That is why the university is committed to having staff who develop programs that will support this tremendous effort.
The International Programs Office is located on the first floor of McLean Hall. We help international students regarding many aspects of their stay in Shippensburg. The staff can help with immigration, travel arrangements, living arrangements, health insurance, social security, emotional and cultural adjustment, etc. International students can also list the address of this office to receive mail and packages.
