The Common Application and Quinnipiac Application are now available for Spring 2021. The Fall 2021 application will be available starting on August 1. We strongly encourage you to use the Common Application.
Early Action and Regular Decision application process
These application plans are non-binding. We offer three application deadlines:
- Early Action I: November 15 (encouraged for entry-level master’s physician assistant, physical therapy, occupational therapy and traditional nursing programs)
- Early Action II: January 1
- Regular Decision: February 1
Early Decision application process
Admission through the Early Decision plan is binding and students interested in any major may apply Early Decision. If, however, you are not offered admission for your first choice of major, the Early Decision will not be binding. Applications are due by November 1.
Submit your official documents
To be considered for admission, your application must include:
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) opens October 1 for those applying for Fall 2021 (based on 2019 fiscal year income). Applicants should file the FAFSA by March 1 for consideration for federal and Quinnipiac financial aid.
We do not require a separate application or form to be considered for academic scholarships. The Admissions Office reviews all admitted students for scholarship qualifications and notifies students in their letters of acceptance of any need-based federal or Quinnipiac grants, eligibility for work-study, and the Federal Direct Stafford Loan program.
Quinnipiac’s FAFSA code is 001402.
You can check the status of your application, receipt of documents and the notification of our admission decision using our secure online system. Within 48 hours of submitting your application, you will receive an acknowledgement email that will contain instructions on how to access your status information and a temporary PIN. Please enter this number as your password. Once you’re logged in, you’ll be prompted to create your own password. If you don’t receive your temporary PIN, please click the “forgot password” link.
We will issue decision notifications according to the following schedule:
- Mid-December: Early Decision applicants (applications due November 1)
- Mid-January: Early Action I applicants (applications due November 15)
- Early February: Early Action II applicants (applications due January 1)
