The Bookstore will mail orders directly to students or arrangements can be made to pick up pre-paid orders at the Center. Students may also take advantage of the online textbook rental option.
When is the application deadline?
After all application materials and credentials have been received, the Office of Admissions will notify the applicants of its decisions on a rolling admissions basis as long as openings remain in the classes.

How do I register for classes (online, in person, etc)?
As part of this convenient support system, students will be able to access all enrollment processes through a streamlined one-stop service model that includes online communication with an admissions counselor, submitting an admission application, filing Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) forms, registering for classes, and paying tuition bills.
Students that prefer a face-to-face interaction will be able to come to the center and receive assistance in the enrollment process from trained staff.
When can I speak with an advisor about the program I am interested in? I am not exactly sure what I want to study. When will I be able to speak with someone about the programs being offered? Will classes be offered on weekends and evenings?
Center operating hours are convenient for the working adult. The Center will operate six days a week on the following schedule:
Monday through Thursday: 9:00a.m. - 10:00p.m.
Friday through Saturday: 8:30a.m. - 5:00p.m.
Students will be able to schedule one-on-one appointments at the Center with representatives by contacting the Office of Admissions.
Classes are tailored to meet the various needs of the adult learner. These may include accelerated formats, traditional models, and classes offered during evening and weekend hours. Classes are taught via on-line and hybrid delivery methods.
What are hybrid courses?
A hybrid learning model is a continuum that blends online learning with face-to-face classroom experience.
Will my courses transfer? If so, how and when will I know how this will happen?
The Office of the Registrar will assist admissions counselors with the evaluation of transfer credits. You must have an official transcript sent to Shepherd by your previous school. No credits will be evaluated or posted based on an unofficial transcript of any kind. The Office of Admissions and the Office of the Registrar work together with the academic coordinators to evaluate your credits in an expeditious manner, and will make every effort to have an evaluation ready by the time of registration.
A major must be declared as different majors impose special restrictions. If you change majors, the way your transfer credits apply to your new degree program may also change!
What programs will the Martinsburg Center be offering?
Program offerings are currently under review by the Higher Learning Commission and are awaiting approval.
We will announce the programs as soon as they are approved for delivery.
