Military Student Admissions

A member of the military takes questions from students participating in an Involvement Fair on the North Haven Campus.

We celebrate the contributions and sacrifices you’ve made as a member of the armed forces, and are honored that you’ve chosen Quinnipiac to pursue your educational goals. We work in association with the Department of Defense and the Veterans Administration to ensure that you’ll receive any military benefits, grants and scholarships you are eligible for.

You deserve a world-class education, and we’ll set you on one of the many pathways toward receiving one. The “Yellow Ribbon Program” may qualify you for benefits up to the cost of full tuition and fees. Service members enrolled in the Post-9/11 GI Bill program are additionally able to transfer education benefits to their spouses and children.

Admissions counselors and faculty advisers are committed to helping you find the tools, resources and mentorship needed for you to succeed. They’ll help you acclimate to life on campus, as well as choose a major that best utilizes previous educational experience and any skills you’ve gained during your military service.

We ask that you send all official high school transcripts, proof of  any college credits earned, your Joint Service Transcript (JST), a letter of recommendation and a personal essay on a topic of your choice to the Office of Admissions.

“The Military Times does a very comprehensive survey to ensure their list of Best for Vets Schools can show universities that offer the best chance for success of these non-traditional students. Even though there were many great schools on the list this year, I feel QU ranks very well is due to the team effort that supports our veterans not only on campus but also the Connecticut VA system. We also have a very active Student Veterans Organization that gets additional outside campus support via the Student Veterans of America (SVA).”
