Planning, Advising and Placement Guides for Course Registration

Last updated January 23, 2024

Academic Support | Academic Advising and Registration

Academic Advisers are Here for You

Every student at Quinnipiac is assigned an academic adviser to work with them to plan out a course of study that fulfills the requirements of their program. 

Students may view who their assigned adviser is on Self-Service. Students will see their adviser when looking at their profile at the top of their Course Plan.

  • Please note: New undergraduate students will be assigned an adviser in the late summer before they begin at Quinnipiac. Students will receive planning guidance and registration information during their Orientation sessions. If you have questions, you may contact the dean of your school.

If a student does not have a declared major, they are still assigned an adviser who works with them on the process of exploring and eventually declaring a major. Learn more about being undeclared

In addition, program directors and school leadership are here to help mentor and guide students. We encourage students to contact them throughout their academic journey. Visit the Academic Catalog website for contact information

Placement Exams

All incoming students will take placement exams during the summer to help determine which level of courses in which they should enroll. The links to these placement exams are available in Q-Start, Quinnipiac's new-student onboarding portal.

Advanced Standing/Placement Guide (AP and IB credits)

Advanced standing or placement will be considered for entering first-year students who have successfully completed college-level credit courses (with a grade of C or better on an official transcript) through a regionally accredited college or university, or who have achieved an acceptable score on an appropriate examination.
