July 18, 2024 Update

Parents and Families

This journey is for you, too. Whether you live around the corner or in a remote corner of the globe, you are part of the Bobcat family. 

We know the decision to send your child to study at Quinnipiac is a huge commitment from you, and our goal is to be as transparent as possible with the need-to-know information you're looking for.

Check back often for up-to-date news, events and contact information for resources across campus.

July 18, 2024 families update

Dear parents and families,

We hope that you are enjoying the beginning of your summer. It is a fairly hectic scene on campus with major construction on the South Quad. The Grove is a month away from opening and the two academic buildings are on target for a late May 2025 opening. Irma and Dana are receiving new roofs, and the updated landscape of the hill next to the new baseball field has been lowered and is now has grass. We are excited to have you walk to the College of Arts and Science on the new pathways from either side of The Grove.

While much activity is centered around the physical campus, we are also focused on continuing to develop new ways to engage and co-create with our students. Our Listening Labs project will be in full swing in the fall with three student leaders chairing the initiative. This project will offer the opportunity for students to learn the importance of listening through perspective taking. We also have four new student leaders who will manage Quinnipiac’s On the Rocks Pub and Grill at York Hill for the upcoming academic year.

One important date I would like to share is Bobcat Weekend, which will be held October 25 to 27, 2024. This is one of the university’s biggest events for alumni, parents, and families. Be sure to mark your calendar. More details will be shared by the end of August.

As we approach the presidential election, we ask your students to register and complete the absentee ballot process. If you do not plan on returning home for election day, registering in Connecticut can be an option as well. Please visit the All In voting website for more information. Additional resources are also available on our website.

Finally, we hope that you have plenty of family time that includes reflecting on your students’ successes this past year; and looking forward, helping them prepare for the upcoming year on their academic journey at Quinnipiac.

As always, should you have any concerns, ideas or suggestions, please email QUParents@qu.edu.

Stay well.

Sincerely,

Tom Ellett
Chief Experience Officer

There’s so much going on!

National Alliance for Mental Illness (NAMI) is a club on campus and an amazing resource for parents. If you suspect that your child may be struggling mentally or emotionally, remember the five Ts: Tell, Test, Teach, Talk, Take Action.

  1. Tell your child they can come to you with any problem

  2. Test their academic health by checking their end of semester grades

  3. Teach them how to recognize depression and anxiety

  4. Talk with them more often or visit if they are in distress

  5. Take action if your student is experiencing high-risk mental health concerns

To learn more and for additional resources, explore the NAMI's Parent's Guide to Mental Health for College Students

What is CARE? The Community, Assessment, Response and Evaluation (CARE) Team is committed to the safety and wellbeing of our community through proactive, coordinated, and deliberate approaches by identifying, assessing, managing and reducing any student interpersonal or behavioral concerns.

Team members include all residential life professional staff, select staff from counseling, student health services, graduate student affairs, religious life, fraternity and sorority life, veteran and military affairs, Title IX, department of cultural and global engagement and student affairs.

The CARE team meets weekly to review and discuss new referrals, ongoing cases and the best course of action to support students of concern.

Housing and Residential Life Updates

Greetings from the Office of Housing.

We hope that you are having a great summer so far and we are looking forward to welcoming your Bobcat to campus in August. Our staff are working hard on roommate matches and room assignments currently and we are eagerly anticipating announcing them officially in a few weeks. The Housing Portal is now closed while we complete this work, but it will re-open on Thursday, August 1. Your student can log in at their convenience beginning that day to view their hall assignment, room assignment and the name and contact information for their roommate(s). Your student can also make changes to their meal plan beginning that day if they wish to do so. The Platinum Plan is the default, but there are options for smaller or larger plans.

Move-In Information Webinar

In other news, we are hosting a Move-In Information Webinar on Tuesday, July 16 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern Time. We encourage both students and parents to attend this informative session to learn about what to expect on Move-In Day and how the process works. Join the webinar online

What’s new from Spiritual and Religious Life

Shalom dear parents,

I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable summer. It is a good thing there is still much time to be together.

Once school begins, the doors at The Hereld House for Jewish Life will open and the candles for shabbat and Yontif will glow. Please know that all activities begin at 5 p.m. for Friday shabbat experiences, holiday meals and special services.

If I can be of ANY help, reach out – my email is reena.judd@quinnipiac.edu.

I hope the remainder of summer is enjoyable.

I hope by the time classes begin, the world will be more peaceful.

With much Shalom,
Rabbi Reena Judd

Global Engagement

This summer, we are supporting 100+ students traveling to 15 different countries. We are excited as they embark on these experiences with QU faculty and staff and taking learning beyond the classroom. If you're interested in participating in a global experience, whether for a semester or a short-term program, please review our website at education.abroad@qu.edu. We look forward to working with you and to helping you identify what type of program might best suit your needs.

One Stop Office (Student Administrative Services)

One Stop provides seamless and integrated student administrative services throughout the entire student life cycle. One Stop includes cross-functional student solutions for:

  • records and enrollment services

  • managing student finances

  • parking and transportation services

(One Stop works closely with and can provide preliminary information about financial aid, Q-Cards, housing and dining. Advanced registrar functions such as degree conferrals, Dean’s List and diplomas are administered through the Registrar.)

Summer and Fall 2024 tuition and fees due dates announced

For full details, including payment plan installment dates, please visit the Payment Options page of our website.

Payment Plans

Payment plans are only offered in the fall and the spring. When students or proxies sign up for a payment plan by the payment due date, installments are spread over five months.

We offer two types of payment plans:

  • Auto Adjust – this plan covers the student’s full balance due and will automatically adjust if the amount owed changes. Therefore, if financial aid is applied the balance due on the payment plan will automatically adjust. This adjustment can lead to an increase or decrease of the monthly payment plan. The remaining balance due will be split among the remaining payments.

  • Fixed Balance – this plan allows the student to determine the amount to pay via the payment plan. To make any adjustments to the amount after the first payment is due, the student needs to contact the One Stop office.

Refunds

At the conclusion of the add/drop registration period, students may owe a balance or be due a refund. It can take up to two weeks after add/drop for refunds to be processed. The fastest way to get a refund is to sign up for direct deposit.

Financial Consent & Tuition Insurance

In Self-Service students and proxies will be asked to consent to the statement of financial responsibility which includes QU’s withdrawal and refund policy. When students or proxies view the invoice through Self-Service and continue to Make a Payment the consent form will be presented.

Consider Tuition Insurance

Students will also be offered the opportunity to purchase tuition insurance.

Proxies

Students may authorize a proxy (parent, guardian, spouse or other individual) to have access to Self-Service to make payments on behalf of the student or to view grades. In addition, authorizing a proxy also allows the appropriate Quinnipiac faculty and staff to discuss relevant matters with the proxy.  Learn more about Proxy Access.

One Stop Announcements

The MyHousing application, which manages both housing and meal plans, will open on August 1. The MyParking application, which manages parking permits, will open in early August.

Please review the FAQs below for more information.

  • Q. I am expecting an adjustment to my bill for meal plan, housing, health insurance or financial aid but it is not there and payment is due on 7/12. What should I do?

    A. We understand that it may take time for adjustments to meal plans, housing, health insurance and financial aid. In the meantime, as you prepare to pay your bill, please pay for the items that you intend to select. (for example, if you are anticipating aid, please deduct it from your balance and pay that part). Then, we ask all students to review their invoice again in a couple of weeks and again after add/drop to pay any remaining balance. After add/drop, we will also review balances and will refund any payments made in excess. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

  • Q. Can I change or update my meal plan?

    A. Please know that the My Housing application which manages both housing and meal plans is closed to students until August 1. At that time, the portal will open and students can change their meal plans. In the meantime, as you prepare to pay your bill, please pay for the meal plan that you intend to select. Then, we ask all student to review their invoice again in a couple of weeks and again after add/drop to pay any remaining balance. After add/drop, we will also review balances and will refund any payments made in excess. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

  • Q. I will be a commuter student in the fall; how do I sign up for a parking permit?

    A. The parking portal isn’t open yet. It will open on August 1 and we will email students at that time. Residential first-year students may not have a car on campus.

All students are reminded to check their student account balance in Self-Service regularly.

Log into Self-Service

Outstanding balances result in financial holds and can lead to a late fee charge. A financial hold prevents students from registering for classes, adding or dropping a class, receiving final grades or transcripts and more.

Please reference the following for assistance as needed:

The Self-Service Finance Guide provides complete instructions on using Self-Service to set up a proxy, view and pay invoices and set up a payment plan.

Costs and budgets provide detailed information on tuition and fees.

The Paying for College section provides information to answer most financial aid questions. 

Additional questions which are not addressed above, should be directed to One Stop at onestop@qu.edu.
