Course Equivalencies

Thank you for visiting our course equivalency page. Please feel free to the use the table below to view equivalencies that Shippensburg has established for numerous colleges and universities.

Course Equivalency Database Instructions

Please note that the equivalency database is not a complete catalog listing. If an institution's course(s) are not listed, they have not been evaluated and will be evaluated after the student has been admitted into the university.

To search for a course equivalency, you must first type the full or partial institutional name you are looking for and click the search button. Once you’ve selected the institution you are searching for, a full alphabetical list of all current course equivalency information will populate. To narrow down the list, you can type at least a partial course name from the transferring institution (for example, if you are searching for a Math course, but aren’t sure of the full course name and number, you can type “MAT” and all course prefixes starting with MAT will populate).
