Other Resources

Students should be resourceful when applying for financial assistance. Although the financial aid office makes every attempt to provide as much assistance as possible, it is impossible for us to be aware of every scholarship, grant or loan that may be available.

An outside scholarship book is available in the Office of Undergraduate Financial Aid and may be viewed during regular business hours. This book has applications from outside organizations with private funds to award.

Outside Scholarships

An outside scholarship is considered a resource and must be included in a student’s financial aid package. If state or federal funds are part of the package, the scholarship amount, combined with the student’s other aid, cannot exceed student need. At Quinnipiac, students who receive such a scholarship may use it to reduce their loans whenever possible and/or work study award. Gift aid will be reduced when a student receives an outside scholarship if it is required to maintain eligibility for federal, state, institutional or other need-based aid.

Payment Plans

As part of our continuing effort to provide affordable and convenient payment options, payment plans are available to help you meet your educational costs. These programs are available through NELNET, specialists in education financing.

Payment plans are offered at no interest, and there is a $75 non-refundable application fee to set up each semester plan. A five-payment option is available in the fall semester and again in the spring semester. If you enroll after the plan begins, you will need to make a proportional down payment and then begin your payments thereafter.
