Frequently Asked Questions

Below are answers to the questions admitted students commonly have about financial aid. Please contact us if you need more information.

All students must complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) for all forms of financial aid. The FAFSA can be filed online.

Quinnipiac's FAFSA code is 001402.


Early-decision students, who have a February 1 deposit deadline and are seeking financial aid, must file the FAFSA as soon as possible to confirm their eligibility for need-based federal and/or Quinnipiac grant aid.

Please visit the Financial Aid page for details.

Undergraduate Tuition and Financial Aid

You'll receive an email from the Office of Financial Aid when your offer is ready to be viewed online. Click on the “Financial aid award” link to see your award. If you filed the FAFSA and no award appears, please check with the financial aid office to see if we are missing any information by calling 203-582-8750.

Financial aid offer notification

All admitted first-year students are given consideration for merit-based scholarships and recipients are notified in their letter of acceptance. Scholarships are based on our review of your rank in class and highest critical reading plus math SAT scores or the highest ACT composite score.

If your high school does not provide a rank in class, we will estimate where your GPA places you within your class based on academic information available through your high school, so please check with your counselor if you’re not sure how your grade point average compares with others in the class.

Costs and Budgets
