Quinnipiac welcomes students from all over the world.

Currently, there are about 100 undergraduate and 75 graduate international students at Quinnipiac . There are several steps in applying for admission such as filing the application and sending us your academic information, your personal statement and your TOEFL score. Once a student has been admitted, the next step is to apply for a visa. International students are able to receive academic scholarships based on a strong academic record in their previous school(s), and all admitted students are reviewed for scholarship consideration. You should explore as many avenues as possible to help with your educational expenses. The following is a list of funding sources that you may find helpful:

The Organization of the American States is offering interest free, Rowe Fund Loans to member countries. To determine if you are eligible, please visit www.oas.org/rowe for more information.

Additionally, we encourage international students to check with their country's various government agencies and other organizations for scholarship options. School guidance counselors can also be a good source of direction in locating scholarships.

And don’t worry if you're not able to visit us before you apply, you can take our virtual tour.

We review applications on a "rolling admission" basis once we have received the application and all supporting materials, so we encourage you to apply as early as possible in advance of the semester in which you'd like to enroll.

If you have questions, please send an e-mail to international@quinnipiac.edu.

This applies to international students applying for full time undergraduate study only.
