Applying for Aid

Graduate Financial Aid Offer and Self-Service Portal

The Graduate Financial Aid Self-Service portal allows you to manage your financial aid information each step of the process. For instance, you can confirm all necessary documents have been received (within 24 hours of submission), determine if any paperwork is outstanding, and review and accept your award package. You can also send an email to our office through the self-service portal.

Once you have been accepted into a Quinnipiac graduate program, you will be sent an email with the information on how to begin accessing the portal.

Financial Aid Self-Service Opens in a new tab or window.

Confirm acceptance of your aid offer

Once logged in, you can view and accept your financial aid offer.
Please note: This is a three-step process.

  1. You will first need to select the "My Awards" tab to review each individual fund and then accept, decline, or reduce each award before you can proceed.
  2. Once completed, please proceed to the "Offer Letter" tab, which will display all of your selections. At the bottom of this page, you will need to verify that each entry is correct by checking the box and then click on the "Accept" button to finalize your selections.
    By accepting and submitting your electronic award, you are agreeing to abide by all of the terms and conditions set forth.
  3. Return to your Checklist to determine if any additional steps are needed.
  • If you do not complete step two, your award will remain in a pending status.
  • If you are modifying your student loan amounts, a financial aid counselor will review your information and advise you when you can proceed to the "My Awards" tab to finalize your selections.

You can print a copy of your offer letter by clicking on the "Offer Letter" icon in the upper left corner of the page.

Please note: If you decide to modify or decline your student loans and later wish to receive the funds you can do so if (as long as) it is before the end of the semester. You will need to notify our office so we can modify your award package.
