“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 believe in creating a PartnerSHIP with parents, family members, loved ones, mentors and supporters

of our Ship students. You are essential in our efforts to help students achieve their academic, personal, and career goals and making the college experience a rewarding one.

A Team Effort

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

  • With our First-Year Experience program, we mentor our new students and help them gain the skills they need to thrive in the college environment.
  • Our student success coaches, learning specialists and tutors provide extra support for students to achieve academically.
  • Our exploratory studies option allows extra flexibility for students who aren’t yet sure which career path they want to take.

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!
