International Student Admission Requirements
We welcome students from all over the world, and we are excited that you’ve chosen Quinnipiac as the ground for your American academic and cultural experience. While the admissions process may seem overwhelming, your admissions counselor is committed to making your transition to life at an American university as easy and straightforward as possible.
Applications are considered on a rolling basis, and we encourage you to apply as early as possible. We review all secondary school, college and university transcripts, as well as a personal statement of about 250 words describing your most recent academic work and future goals. Submission of standardized test scores such as the SAT and ACT is optional. Under certain circumstances, we may ask that you submit transcripts to World Education Services (WES) for credit evaluation.Apply now
If you are an international student, you are required to submit the following documents in addition to those found under the required documents:
- Course by Course Credential Evaluation: Our preferred vendor is World Education Services.
- Statement of Financial Support: Please complete the Statement of Financial Support form. Please include bank statements for supporting documentation.
- Copy of Passport or National ID: Please provide a copy of your passport or national ID. This can be mailed, emailed or faxed to the Office of Graduate Admissions.
- English Language Proficiency: Please provide an official copy of your TOEFL or IELTS exam score OR documentation of successful completion of ELS Level 112.
Documented English language proficiency is required. You may satisfy this by either completing The ELS Language Center’s intensive level 112 course or achieving satisfactory scores on the TOEFL or the IELTS exams. If you haven’t satisfied your English requirement, but meet all other necessary criteria, you may still be considered for “conditional admission” based on eventual completion of the ELS Language Center course, the TOEFL, or the IELTS.
Upon admittance, you must apply for a student VISA. This can be done at the U.S Embassy or Consulate with jurisdiction over your place of permanent residence.
All admitted international students become eligible for scholarships based on academic excellence at their previous school(s). Admissions and financial aid counselors will help you determine your eligibility status, as well as assist with locating any other funding sources available to you.
