Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.71 Average Rating
Ship is a state school so it's cheaper to go here if you live in PA. Tuition and room and board just went up this year but it's still more affordable than most colleges and the experience you get is worth every penny. With all this school has to offer it's students it's a decent price. As with any college, it is pretty expensive; but it's cheaper than most.
Ashlie from Waynesboro, PA
Ship is very very inexpensive!!
Josh
As far as tuition goes, it's a really affordable education, but the school has a very small and shrinking programs for the arts.
Birdie
While tuition costs have been rising consistently, Shippensburg University is worth the money. There is an excellent staff of professors that are so willing to help and teach their students. The atmosphere is great and there are so many fun activities that the university plans. This is a great place to receive an excellent education and make life long friends.
Chelsey from Everett, PA
Tuition is fairly manageable and they have many loan and scholarship programs open and willing to help! There is nothing like earning a quality education while getting to experience the wonderful things that Shippensburg has to offer!
Monae from Bushkill, PA
Shippensburg is a fairly inexpensive state school which provides a really solid education to their students. I feel as though I get the most out of the money that I pay and I am overal happy with the way that my money is being spent.
Jordan from Hanover, PA
Shippensburg is a state school which means it is cheapest for PA residents. Its about 14,000 a year which is actually pretty cheap now. They have a great education program and what really sold me on the school was the elementary school they have on campus where you can observe starting your freshman year. Ship also has a newly built rec center where there are 4 basketball/volleyball courts, a track , machines and weights. Its really nice because students get to use it for free and with the meal plan you receive 200 flex which you can use many places around campus.
Rachel from Johnstown, PA
You get what you pay for. College is expensive but, I have not come across one professor who does not want to teach and help you succeed.
Elizabeth from Littlestown, PA
I think SHIP is really worth the money. You get a true college experience here, and it's a great school. The food is pretty good and the classes are worth the money, if you choose the right teachers. You can also get a job pretty quickly after you graduate, I've heard. It's definitely worth your money and time. Enroll at SHIP!
