Families need to file the FAFSA (school code: 001402) and the CSS Profile form (school Profile code: 3712) by March 1.
The University also awards merit-based scholarships, ranging from $9000 to $20,000, to incoming freshmen. Awards are based on high school rank in class and SAT (critical reading plus math) or ACT composite scores.
If you have any questions, please e-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
High school students should begin applying for admission early in their senior year. A completed application consists of the application form (electronic or Common application), official high school transcript, official SAT I test scores (or ACT), first quarter grades, personal essay, and one letter of recommendation. Admissions will select the highest (critical reading plus math or ACT composite) scores for admission or merit aid.
The admissions office begins reviewing applications as they become complete and begins notifying students of admission decisions in early January. Students applying for the physical therapy, nursing and physician assistant programs should apply by November 15. We recommend February 1 as the deadline for all other applicants. An ‘Early Decision’ option also is offered, which is binding, for freshmen applicants in all programs. Students applying ‘Early Decision’ must file their application by November 1, followed by their application supporting materials, test scores and letter of recommendation, and submit first quarter grades when they are available. In general, Quinnipiac admits between 55-60% of our applicants.
Please visit our website for more information about the application process and our early decision option.
