Graduation Rate

Under the provisions of the Student Right-to-Know Act universities must report the graduation rate of students. This rate is based on full- time students who entered the institution as first time freshmen. It includes all students who have completed their course of study in 150% of the normal time for completion or graduation.

As a four-year institution, Shippensburg University reports the rate for students who have graduated up to six years after initially enrolling. The most recent class for which these figures can be calculated entered the University in the fall of 2013. The graduation rate for this class is 58%. 

Release of Student Information

Under federal law, Shippensburg University may release directory information about current students. Directory information includes name, home/local addresses and phone numbers, e-mail address, enrollment status, major, degree and honors. This information is provided to callers and is also available on the University's World Wide Website.  If you do not want this information to be released, you must complete a form in the Registrar's Office instructing the University to withhold your directory information. Please visit /registrar/release_of_directory_information2/ for more information.

First Day Attendance

The first day attendance policy allows faculty to remove you from a course if you do not attend the first class session and do not provide notice to the faculty or the department secretary. This also applies to the first class after you add a course during schedule adjustment.  If you are dropped from a course for not attending the first class, you may only reschedule it if it is still open during schedule adjustment.  Even if you do not attend the first class, you are still responsible for dropping the course during schedule adjustment. Otherwise, you may remain scheduled for the course and receive a grade of "F" for nonattendance. You may also be charged for the course.
