Parents and Families

You are critical to your child’s success. More than half of our students tell us that a parent was the most influential person in their decision to come to Ship. Thank you!

We are a family-centered school. By working together, our families will thrive. Our new Family Portal will keep you updated and connected with:

  • Access to important campus news and deadlines
  • Personalized newsletters on your schedule
  • Announcements via email
  • Sharing of updates with friends and family
Sign up for the Shippensburg University Family Portal today!

“At first I was a little nervous because I was just thinking, how am I going to do chemistry online, like how am I going to do anatomy, those kinds of classes, online, but I think the professors did a great job adapting to what we had to do…and made it comfortable for all the students.”

We care about your child’s success. That's why we take a hands-on, holistic approach to helping our students reach their goals.

Combining these support options with our low student-faculty ratio, we’ve created a close-knit community where students can excel, have fun and form lifelong relationships. It’s important to us that students thrive on all levels: academically, in their careers and on a personal level.

We invite you to visit campus and see what Shippensburg has to offer your child. See you soon!
