First Year Students 

Application Options:

Regular Decision (First Year/Freshmen): We encourage you to apply early in the fall of your senior year. We review complete files on a 'rolling admission' basis -- the sooner we have your materials the quicker you will receive an admission decision.

Early Decision (First Year/Freshmen): If Quinnipiac is your first choice school, we encourage you to apply ‘Early Decision’ (ED), which is an option available for applicants to all majors. Early Decision is binding, solidifying your place in the program of your choice and granting you the peace of mind that comes with knowing exactly where you will be next fall.

Application Deadlines:

  • Early Decision – November 1
  • Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Physician Assistant – November 15
  • All other majors – before February 1

Admissions Requirements:

  • High school transcript
  • Personal essay on a topic of particular meaning and interest to you. The essay should reflect who you are and speak to your values, goals, and aspirations as a student.
  • Letter of recommendation from a teacher, guidance counselor or other school official
  • 4 years of English
  • 3 years of mathematics (4 years required for Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Nursing and Physician Assistant applicants)
  • 3 or more years of science (4 years required for applicants to the Schools of Nursing and Health Sciences)
  • 2 years of social science and foreign language

  • Homeschooled

  • Applying to the School of Engineering
  • Applying to the College of Arts and Sciences (If you wish to be considered for any dual degree program, test scores may be helpful.)
  • Interested in the BA/Master of Arts in Teaching program, as achieving a certain score can waive the PRAXIS exam
If we do receive your test scores, we will automatically choose your highest evidence-based reading/writing and math scores from the SAT or the highest ACT composite score

Scores that are self reported in the testing section of this application will be considered in the admission decision and scholarship selection process. If you wish to apply test optional DO NOT write in your scores in the testing section. Applying test optional is not available for those applying to programs in the Schools of Health Sciences and Nursing. See the chart below for additional details:
 
 














If you share self reported test scores on this application, you must arrange to have verified/official test scores (from the College Board or ACT) sent to Quinnipiac University by June 1, if accepted and you plan to enroll. Failure to provide official scores which are consistent with self reported scores may result in your acceptance and/or scholarship being rescinded.
