Looking for information about COVID-19 financial assistance?


All students are encouraged to complete a FAFSA in order to apply for all of the grants, loans and work-study programs available. It is important to complete this form, even if you think you won't qualify, especially for those seeking federal loan assistance.

Quinnipiac's Federal School Code is 001402.


Federal Student Loans

Each qualified FAFSA filer is eligible for Federal Stafford loans. Federal Stafford Loan amounts are determined by grade level on file with the registrar’s office. If a parent is denied a Federal PLUS Loan (see below), the student can receive additional unsubsidized loan funds. 

Federal Parent Loan

These loans are available to creditworthy parents of dependent, undergraduate students. Parents can apply for loan amounts up to the difference that financial aid does not cover. Parent loan payments typically begin 60 days after the loan is fully disbursed and are payable over a 10-year period.

Private Loans

Additional student loan money is available for students who have a creditworthy co-signer. Interest rates will vary based upon a variety of criteria. If a parent is unable to co-sign, most private loans will allow another co-signer such as a grandparent, aunt, uncle or family friend.

Interest-Free Payment Plan

Students or parents may pay their annual balance interest free. Payment plans are term specific and offer up to five (5) monthly payments per semester (fall and spring only). To enroll or find out more, please contact the bursar's office.

Employment and Stipends

Student employment

Many students work over the summer to help pay for books, fees and other college expenses. Don't forget that you will need spending money throughout the year so it is important to plan accordingly. There are also a number of jobs available to those students who are awarded federal work study and a limited number of opportunities for students who want to work but were not awarded work-study. Job listings are posted on MyQ after July 1. To search for a job, visit the link below (requires MyQ access).

Student government and leadership stipends

There are a select number of student government and leaderships stipends available for those serving in various positions on campus.

Resident Assistants (RA) stipend

Full room and board stipends are available for upperclassmen who are hired to become an RA for the year. To learn more about being an RA, visit the link below (requires MyQ access).

Other Benefits

Quinnipiac multiple siblings award

The $2,000 award is available to full-time undergraduate and graduate students who have a sibling concurrently enrolled as a full-time undergraduate student at Quinnipiac. Please notify the financial aid office if you think you may qualify so these funds can be properly applied to your account.

Educational savings and tax credits

There are a variety of educational savings plans and tax credits designed to help families save for college while also gaining tax benefits. Tax credits, deductions and savings plans can help taxpayers with their expenses for higher education. Families must meet specific eligibility criteria to qualify.  

Veterans Affairs benefits

Eligible veterans of the armed forces may qualify for educational benefits.

Employer benefits

Your employer may provide opportunities for receiving educational benefits for you, your spouse or dependent children. Visit the human resources office at your current place of employment for details.

Tuition exchange benefits

If you work at a college or university, you also may qualify for tuition exchange benefits. Please note, if a student receives multiple tuition-only awards (i.e. merit awards, tuition benefits, etc.), the sum cannot exceed Quinnipiac's published tuition. If the total exceeds tuition, a reduction will be calculated.
