The University awards merit-based scholarships, ranging from $7,000 to $28,000, to incoming freshmen. Awards are based on high school rank in class and SAT (critical reading plus math) or ACT composite scores.
High school students should begin applying for admission early in the fall of their senior year. A completed application consists of the application form (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 November. Students applying to the entry-level Physician Assistant program should apply by October 15. Students applying to the physical therapy, nursing and occupational therapy programs should apply by November 15. We recommend February 1 as the deadline for all other applicants. An ‘Early Decision’ option is available, 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. With a consistently strong applicant pool, Quinnipiac admits between 65-70% of applicants.
