Payments online

Shippensburg University offers online payment options (credit cards and electronic checks) through our processor, Official Payments. Official Payments accepts Mastercard, Discover, American Express and Visa. Students may pay online by credit card (with a 2.49% non-refundable service fee) or by electronic check (at no charge). To make an online payment, log in at myShip with your Ship email and password.  Paying online is the fastest way to make last minute payments to get your bill cleared by the due date! If you pay with a card, you will see two transactions on your credit card statement, one for the tuition/fee payment to Shippensburg University and the other for the 2.49% service fee to Official Payments. Depending on your bank, the service fee description on your credit card statement will be similar to “OPC COL*SERVICE FEE”.

A debit card will be processed as a credit card. If you would like to make payment directly from your bank account, you should choose the "Bank Account" option and pay with electronic check.
