A transfer to Quinnipiac is an exciting move—and, thankfully, our simple steps in applying will make the paperwork relatively easy.

Transfer students are expected to present a grade point average of 2.5 (on a 4.0 scale) or better for previous college work; some programs in health sciences require higher GPAs.  We encourage you to contact us or to meet with an admissions counselor if you have questions regarding your academic goals. More about our admissions counselors

All majors are open to transfers except the undergraduate track for the six-year physician’s assistant program and the physical therapy program.  Students interested in these graduate programs must complete an appropriate baccalaureate degree prior to applying as a graduate student.  Transfers for our other health science programs are accepted on a space available basis. Athletic training, diagnostic imaging, nursing and occupational therapy have limited space available and accept transfers only for the fall semesters.

Transfer Visits to Quinnipiac
We encourage prospective transfer students to visit the University.  Each of our open houses features a special transfer session.  Additional information sessions are held in late November, January and March.  Informational interviews are also available.  The Visit with Us page allows you to choose the best option.

Transfer Deadlines
For majors except those listed below with a specific deadline, we review applications once they become complete (rolling admissions). The admissions committee begins reviewing spring applications in October and fall applicants in early February, continuing the process as files become complete. Transfer applications for the fall semester will be considered complete when we receive the grades from the previous fall. Please keep in mind that we recommend you apply earlier than the dates listed to be considered for the program of your choice.

Jan. 1 – the FAFSA application becomes available. CSS profile is also available.
March 1 - FAFSA application due
March 1 –Deadline for completed applications for transfer to athletic training, diagnostic imaging, occupational therapy or nursing programs for fall semester. Transfer applicants for these three programs are accepted on a space available basis only for the fall semester.

Yes, we have transfer scholarships!
