Candidates for transfer admission have earned credits at a college or university after their high school graduation. We encourage you to use your application essay to summarize your experiences and why you would like to attend Quinnipiac.
For most majors, a minimum GPA of 2.5 is expected. SAT or ACT scores are required for students with less than 30 college credits who are applying for any health sciences major. They are not required if you’re applying to the College of Arts and Sciences or Schools of Business, Communications or Engineering.
Students may apply to transfer into many of our academic programs, with a few exceptions in the School of Health Sciences and School of Nursing, which are outlined below.
To earn your degree, you will need to meet academic requirements for graduation for your major, including completion of your last 45 credits at Quinnipiac.
Please note that GPA and departmental requirements are different for each of these highly competitive programs, and meeting minimum standards does not guarantee admission to these programs.
- Athletic training and radiologic sciences admit transfer students only if space is available and only for entry in the fall semester.
- The traditional undergraduate nursing program and the occupational therapy program are not open for transfer.
- Students may not transfer into the undergraduate portion of the BS/MHS in Physician Assistant, the Doctor of Physical Therapy or the combined Masters of Occupational Therapy programs. A student may complete an undergraduate degree in a major such as health science before applying to an appropriate graduate program. Space in Quinnipiac’s graduate programs is not guaranteed and not always available.
Applicants who are interested in the Accelerated BS in Nursing program must already have a bachelor’s degree.
Quinnipiac makes every effort to transfer college credits that you have already earned. Courses completed at a regionally accredited college or university with a grade of “C” or better, which are similar to courses offered at Quinnipiac, will usually transfer.
An unofficial evaluation of credits is completed as part of the application process for admitted students and is forwarded directly to the email on the transfer application.
You may request an unofficial evaluation of credits prior to applying. Choice of major will affect how credits are utilized. Please send us your unofficial transcripts with grades by email or fax — with your name, email address, telephone number and intended major.
International students should send official transcripts to World Education Services (WES) for certification and evaluation of credits, and request that Quinnipiac University receive the results.
