NOTE: Those seeking a second bachelor's degree only need to submit the application form, application fee and all college transcripts.
File your application. You can do so online, or you can download a paper application (pdf) and send it directly to the admissions office. The application fee is $45. Applicants can also apply to Quinnipiac using the Common Application. If you choose to use the Common Application, you'll need to file the supplemental form as well. We recommend that freshmen applicants file their application early in the senior year as we review files on a 'rolling admission' basis.
Complete your personal statement. This one-page (minimum 250 word) essay is to be included with your application. Freshmen may wish to tell us about their interest in Quinnipiac and/or your future career plans. Transfer students should use their statement to highlight their reasons for wanting to transfer to Quinnipiac from their previous insitution. International students should tell us about their previous educational and life experience and why they are interested in Quinnipiac.
Request that your high school transcript be sent to us. Your school must mail it to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. We recommend seniors have their first quarter grades sent when they are available.
Please send all your official SAT I or ACT scores directly to us. Quinnipiac's SAT code is 3712, and our ACT code is 0582. We do not require SAT IIs. We will select your highest critical reading, math, writing and ACT composite score - but we do value the effort and wish to see all your scores.
Provide a letter of recommendation. Please provide a minimum of one letter of recommendation from your guidance counselor (required) or a teacher (optional). You'll find forms on our 'Apply' page which you can use.
For all majors, except those listed with specific deadlines below, we review applications once they become complete (rolling admissions). The admissions committee begins reviewing spring applicants in October and fall applicants in early February. Transfer applications for the fall semester will be considered complete when we receive 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.
Mid-November: Recommended date to file an application for spring semester (January).
Jan. 1: the FAFSA application becomes available. Please file it by March 1 to be considered for all aid programs. (Remember to complete the CSS profile as well.)
March 1: Deadline for completed application for athletic training, occupational therapy or nursing programs for the fall semester. Transfer applicants for these three programs are accepted on a space available basis, only for the fall semester.
April 1: "Recommended" date to file an application for fall semester (August). For majors other than those listed above, we do continue to accept applications after April 1.
