"Being a first-generation student, financial aid and federal loans were the make-or-break between my career goals and aspirations. With the financial package I received I have been able to grow professionally and personally, and plan to continue my growth as I give back to my community and Commonwealth."

Life is complicated enough. Paying for your undergraduate or graduate degree shouldn’t be. To help you understand the financial aid landscape, Shippensburg University has compiled a Financial Aid Road Map that describes the typical financial aid process and how to qualify for different types of aid.

By helping you make sense of the options, you will achieve your degree in the way that makes the most sense for you. Investing this time to fund your education now is investing in your future. And the sooner you start your career, the brighter the future becomes.


After Your Acceptance to Ship

After you’re admitted to Ship, visit the admissions portal to activate your myShip account.

Once your myShip account is activated, follow these instructions to find and view your financial aid offer. (We generally start sending out aid notification emails to new students late December). Or, if there are any missing documents, we’ll indicate what we need to help you qualify for the maximum aid available.
