Shippensburg University welcomes students with disabilities into all
of the University's educational programs and strives to make all
learning experiences as accessible as possible. Any student who
feels s/he may need an accommodation based on the impact of a
disability should contact the Office of Accessibility Resources
(OAR) to discuss your specific needs. OAR is located in Horton Hall
324 and can be reached by phone at (717) 477-1364. The office's
website is http://www.ship.edu/oar.
In order to receive consideration for reasonable
accommodations, you must provide documentation and participate in
an intake interview. If the documentation supports your request
for reasonable accommodations, the Office of Accessibility
Resources will provide you with an Accommodation Notification
Form. OAR encourages you to share your notification form with your
instructors and discuss your accommodations with them as early in
your courses as possible. You must submit a request for a new
notification form each semester that you request accommodations.
The College of Arts & Sciences Advising Center (CASA)
located in DHC 216 is a walk-in office that offers several types

It is the policy of Shippensburg University to expect academic
honesty. Students who commit breaches of academic honesty will be
subject to the various sanctions outlined in the Undergraduate
- Plagiarism is “the unauthorized use or close imitation of the
language and thoughts of another author and the representation
of them as one's own original work.” Plagiarism on assignments
and exams is not allowed.
- The purpose of assignments and exams is for you to demonstrate
your own understanding of the concepts from class. While I
encourage you to work together with your fellow students both
outside of class and during in-class activities, you must
complete homework and exams on your own.
- If you copy any work from another student's paper, then both
students will receive a zero grade on the assessment. In
addition, the infraction will be reported to the Dean of
Students in accordance with the university’s Academic Dishonesty
- Further offenses can lead to suspension or expulsion!
TITLE IX COMPLIANCE:
Shippensburg University and its faculty are committed to assuring a
safe and productive educational environment for all students. In
order to meet this commitment and to comply with Title IX of the
Education Amendments of 1972 and guidance from the Office for Civil
Rights, the University requires faculty members to report incidents
of sexual violence shared by students to the University's Title IX
Coordinator. The only exceptions to these reporting obligations are
when students communicate incidents of sexual violence during
classroom discussions, in writing assignments for class, or as part
of University-approved research projects.
Faculty members are obligated to report allegations of sexual
violence or any other abuse of a student who was, or is, a child (a
person under 18 years of age) when the abuse allegedly occurred.
Such reporting must be made to the Shippensburg University Police
(717-477-1444), the Department of Human Services (DHS) at
800-932-0313, and the University’s Office of the Vice President of
Student Affairs (717-477-1308).
