Overview

Quinnipiac University Is a Vibrant, Forward-Looking Institution That Is International in Scope and Outlook

Quinnipiac University, a private, coeducational institution with 6,000 undergraduate and 2,000 graduate students, is consistently ranked among the top universities by the "U.S. News & World Report." The university offers more than 50 undergraduate majors, 20 graduate programs, and a Juris Doctor (JD) program to a student body with over 100 members from other countries through the Schools of Business and Engineering, Communications, Health Sciences, Nursing, and Education; the College of Arts and Sciences; and the School of Law, as well as a soon to open School of Medicine.

A dedicated, award-winning faculty leverages leading-edge technology, small classes of 25 or fewer students, and a student-faculty ratio of 16:1 to create an academic environment incredibly conducive to critical thinking and original scholarship. Study-abroad and Semester at Sea programs, as well as summer research on campus, further extend and expand the university's unique offerings to its students.

The school is situated near picturesque Sleeping Giant Mountain in Hamden, Connecticut, just 8 miles north of New Haven. The campus is a magnificent architectural display of modern brick buildings and large, lush lawns. The state-of-the-art facilities include the Terry W. Goodwin '67 Financial Technology Center, a fully digital "HD" broadcast studio, and the well-known Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

The heart and soul of Quinnipiac, of course, is its commitment to teaching, enlightenment, and good global citizenship. Fostering partnerships among students, faculty, visiting scholars, and the scholastic community at large, Quinnipiac University is a vibrant, engaged, and warmly welcoming campus.

Quinnipiac University Has a 2-Way Street for International Study, Offering Scholarship Assistance to Foreign Students

Because the marketplace of today and tomorrow is global, Quinnipiac's exchange agreements with various foreign institutions allow its students to study abroad in a number of different countries. The University's agreement with Ecole Superieure de Commerce de Rennes in France, for instance, represents the opportunity of a semester's study in France. Coming the other direction, Quinnipiac actively seeks out students from around the world to contribute their cultural and scholastic assets to its well-rounded student body.

Students are able to study abroad at partner institutions or at any Quinnipiac-approved program of study, such as Australearn, API, and Semester At Sea. Students plan early for study abroad, typically going for either the second semester of their sophomore year or one or both semesters of their junior year. Students have attended classes in Spain, South Africa, United Kingdom, Australia, Costa Rica, South Korea, and Japan, as well as other European, African, Asian, and South American nations.

In fact, Quinnipiac offers qualified international students International Scholarships which are based on each student's high-quality work in her or his home country's educational system. The university is not able to provide full funding for all annual costs, and not every student admitted will receive aid. Students' families, of course, are encouraged to provide statements of financial support if their children are accepted at Quinnipiac.

More information on applying as an international student is available.

Residential Life at Quinnipiac is Excellent, from the Campus Facilities to the Surrounding Communities and Beyond

Some 4,500 students make up the Quinnipiac University residential community. Traditional residence halls, suites, and apartments on the Mount Carmel campus; houses and apartments in University-owned off-campus properties; and apartment-style residence halls on the York Hill campus offer great variety in settings and collective living. This part of university life is as educational as any classroom course.

Quinnipiac's location offers the mix of city resources and country life that make Connecticut a gem. Lush greenery and 4, full, robust seasons of New England weather make life brisk and bracing, as well as calm and peaceful. In addition to the restaurants, museums, and cultural opportunities that are in nearby New Haven, 2 of the world's great cities are within 2 hours by car or train: New York and Boston. Culture, cuisine, art, entertainment, and professional sports offer everything one could want in a city -- besides the museums, libraries, galleries, parks and skyscrapers. New York has its Boroughs, Boston has its Back Bay, and the Quinnipiac student has his or her choice of destinations to fill in any weekend or break.

Students Who Have Worked Hard on Their Grades and Extracurriculars Find Quinnipiac Working Hard for Them

A Quinnipiac degree really is an exceptional value, especially when considering the quality of the educational experience that students receive at this top-notch institution. The university is ready to welcome every student who wishes to enrich his or her life and future. Our many successful alumni living fulfilling personal and professional lives can certainly attest to this.

Quinnipiac University is ready to help students pay for this valuable experience, and will work with them to make sure that they receive the most state and federal aid possible. The fact is, almost three-quarters of Quinnipiac students get some form and amount of financial aid, which can be assembled in many different ways from a combination of scholarships, grants, work-study programs, and student loans.

US citizens and permanent residents who wish to apply for need based financial aid are required to file Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) forms and the CSS Profile form by March 1 to ensure complete consideration of their aid applications.
