As universities across the country face declining enrollment, amplified by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Shippensburg University is a standout among the trend, reporting increases in both enrollment and retention. 

The current enrollment represents a 0.6 percent increase from fall 2019 with a 0.8 percent increase reported for undergraduate students. While an increase in enrollment is an encouraging trend, Ship has also demonstrated a 2.3 percent increase in retention over the previous year, and a 6 percent increase in retention over the previous three years, a strong signal that the ongoing commitment to student success is deepening the reputation of the university as a “student first” institution.
