The Office of Financial Aid can help families find the resources they need to make the cost of a private university education affordable. Costs are often met by combining the resources of parents and students as well as state, federal, and outside sources.
After you receive and review your full financial aid package, accept it in Hornet Hub online or sign and return a copy of the letter to the Office of Financial Aid by June 1. The earlier this is completed, the smoother the process becomes. For complete Shenandoah University financial aid information visit Financial Aid.
If you haven’t already, please apply for financial aid by completing the Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Once you complete the FAFSA, the Office of Financial Aid will evaluate your financial aid eligibility and provide you with a full financial aid package.

Residential living is often one of the most dynamic parts of a student’s university experience, and Shenandoah is a residential campus. Freshmen and sophomore students are required to reside in campus housing, and we offer housing to upperclassmen who choose to live on-campus.
New students can apply for housing between March 10 – June 3, 2020. For full consideration, you must apply for housing by Wednesday, June 3, 2020, and students will receive their housing assignments around July 13.
Questions about housing? Contact the Office of Residence Life at (540) 665-4611 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submit transcripts from all previous attended institutions to the Office of Admissions.
Academic success is related to your overall health, and the Wilkins Wellness Center is your one-stop hub for health and counseling services. Required health forms and insurance information must be submitted by August 1, 2020.
Health forms can be downloaded from su.edu/healthforms, and once completed, they should be mailed or delivered to the Wilkins Wellness Center. Faxed and emailed copies will not be accepted. Please keep documentation of your submitted health forms for your personal records.
Shenandoah University requires all students to submit their health insurance information online. A postcard from the insurance broker will be mailed to your home address when the insurance website opens for the fall semester. Weekly emails will be sent following the postcard until complete, so each student can submit their proof of insurance or enroll in the student health insurance policy. Review the Health & Insurance Requirements for more information.
Students who do not FULLY complete health forms and insurance information by August 1 will incur late fees.
**Athletes in fall sports may need to submit their physical form and sickle cell blood test prior to August 1. Please check with your coach to confirm specific dates. Please send all forms including sickle cell test to the Wellness Center. DO NOT GIVE OR SEND ANY HEALTH FORMS TO COACHES.
All new Shenandoah students are registered for their initial classes by their academic dean’s office. Academic offices register students based on their major, curriculum course requirements and course availability. You will need to work with your academic unit to create your class schedule. Students who wish to make changes to their schedule are able to do so during Welcome Week, and the add/drop period.
After the first semester at Shenandoah, students are responsible for course registration with their specific academic advisor.
Transfer Summer Orientation is designed to meet the needs of transfer students, and their families. During your one-day session, you will have the opportunity to meet current and incoming students, receive your official Hornet ID card, and learn about campus life. As a new transfer student, you will need to work with your academic unit prior to orientation to create your class schedule, and academic advisors will be available the morning of orientation for additional advising if necessary.
The entire staff at Shenandoah University awaits your arrival, and we look forward to meeting you this summer at our Transfer Orientation. We can’t wait to show you all the exciting things that are in store for you at Shenandoah University!
