Parents and Families

At Shippensburg University, our number one goal is helping your student succeed. As the parent or guardian of a college-bound student, you play an important role in your student's college decision process. More than half of our students tell us a parent was the most influential person in their decision to come to Ship. You care about your student's success, and so do we.
