What do I have to do to receive financial aid?
TWO forms are required for students applying for all forms of financial aid: the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form, which can be filed online at www.fafsa.gov (Quinnipiac's FAFSA code is 001402) after Jan. 1. The CSS Profile Form (Quinnipiac's CSS code is 3712) is necessary to be given consideration for Quinnipiac institutional grant assistance and can be filed online at https://profileonline.collegeboard.com/prf/index.jsp and . If you only filed the FAFSA you will not be able to be considered for Quinnipiac grant aid - you must file the CSS Profile in order to be reviewed for institutional aid (other than merit awards).
For student who have been admitted through Early Decision who have a Feb. 1 deposit due deadline and are seeking financial aid: Please file the CSS Profile prior to January so that we can provide you with a timely financial aid award, and file the FAFSA between Jan. 1 and March 1 to confirm your eligibility for Federal Aid.
When will I receive my financial aid award?
You'll receive a letter from the Office of Financial Aid when your award is ready to be viewed online at www.quinnipiac.edu/finaid. You will click on the "your electronic award" link to see your award. If you have filed the CSS Profile and the FAFSA and no award appears, please check with the financial aid office to see if we are missing any information. 203-582-8750.
When might I hear about scholarships?
All admitted freshmen are given consideration for a merit-based scholarships and recipients are notified in their letter of acceptance. Scholarship criteria requires that a student rank in the top 25 percent of their high school class and have 1100 minimum on the critical reading plus math portion of the SAT or have an ACT minimum composite of 25.
If your high school does not provide a rank in class, we will estimate where your GPA places you within your class based on academic information available through your high school, so please check with your counselor if you're not sure how your grade point average compares with others in the class.
Transfer students with two years of college work are eligible to be considered for scholarships based on their GPA. Please check www.quinnipiac.edu/scholarships for our scholarship guidelines. If you are not eligible to receive a merit award, you can still be considered for financial aid, which includes federal, state or Quinnipiac grants, work study, loans, etc.
I'm interested in the Honors Program - what is the selection process?
The Honors Program selects about 80 intellectually curious and motivated incoming freshmen with a strong academic background to participate in what can be both an enriching and engaging part of college life. Students interested in learning more about the program and who want to fill out a brief application with a personal statement reflective of their interest in the program, please see www.quinnipiac.edu/honors-program.
Will I be guaranteed housing if I pay the housing deposit?
Yes, freshmen will be housed in doubles or quads in the Ledges, the Commons, Irma, Dana and Mountainview. You'll fill out a roommate inventory questionnaire as part of your Orientation information, and you can indicate a rank order of your choice of buildings. You'll receive your housing and roommate assignments in January for spring entrants, and on Aug.1 for fall freshmen. Transfer students will likely be assigned together in double rooms in suite housing (some with full kitchens) on the Mount Carmel Campus or in the all-suite Crescent residence hall on the York Hill Campus.
What about Orientation and registration for the Fall semester?
