A survey of recent graduates indicated that close to 95 percent were either employed or in graduate school within six months of graduation.

Quinnipiac, founded in 1929, is a private, co-educational, non-sectarian university located in a uniquely attractive New England setting in Hamden, Connecticut and nearby North Haven. Quinnipiac's mission is to provide a supportive and stimulating environment for the intellectual and personal growth of its 7100 undergraduate and 2800 graduate, law and medical students.

The university offers broadly-based undergraduate programs together with graduate programs in selected professional fields. At the undergraduate level, through integrated liberal arts and professional curricula, programs in the Schools of Business, Engineering, Communications, Education, Health Sciences, Nursing, and the College of Arts and Sciences prepare students for career entry or advanced studies. Graduate programs are designed to provide professional qualifications for success in business, education, health sciences, nursing, communications, social work, medicine and law.

An education at Quinnipiac embodies the university's commitment to three important values: excellence in education, a student-centered campus, and a spirit of community. The entire university shares a service orientation toward students and their needs. Its collegial atmosphere fosters a strong sense of community, identity and purpose among faculty, staff and students.


From The School

High school students should begin applying for admission early in their senior year. Visit for application information. Quinnipiac is a member of the Common Application. A completed application consists of the application form, followed by official high school transcript, first-quarter senior grades, essay and one letter of recommendation. Students applying to the Schools of Health Sciences or Nursing must submit official SAT (QU code – 3712) and/or ACT (QU code – 0582) test scores. International and homeschooled students, as well as athletes playing a Division I sport (per NCAA rules) also must submit official test scores. For all other majors, files will be reviewed for an admission decision as well as consideration for scholarships based on overall academic work. If test scores are received, the highest critical reading and math scores (from the 'new' SAT) or the highest ACT composite score will be chosen.

Quinnipiac reviews applications on a 'rolling admissions' basis and also offers an Early Decision option for freshmen applicants. Early Decision students must file their application by November 1. The admissions office begins reviewing applications as soon as they are complete, and begins notifying students of admission decisions in November. Students applying for the 6-year BS/Physician Assistant program should submit the application by Oct 15, those applying for the BS/DPT in physical therapy, BS/MOT occupational therapy and BS nursing programs should apply by November 15.

Students Say

Quinnipiac University is a mid-sized Connecticut institution that uses a practice-focused, market-tested curriculum and experiential learning to prepare students for the working world. The university's job connections in Connecticut, New York, and Boston are particularly strong, and its ongoing expansion "is giving its students the opportunity to work in more and more locations throughout the world." Small classes are "tailored to the individual student," but the school "still has a big university feel. It is the best of both worlds." There are "numerous resources that are helpful to students," such as peer fellows at the Learning Commons that "put on review sessions for difficult courses like Anatomy and Organic Chemistry."All in all, faculty and staff alike "work hard to ensure the student body develops skills crucial to the workforce."

Professors at Quinnipiac are "highly educated in their fields and lecture based on personal experiences in their careers," which "truly brings the material to life when learning about it." The faculty "really want you to succeed and want to help in that process." All of the teachers here have real-world experience to bring to the classroom and "have several connections within their field." Quinnipiac is "big into projects" and "tries to limit the number of exams that students are forced to take," finding a balance between graded assignments, projects, and tests in order to cater to every student's strengths.

Students Say

Quinnipiac University is "the perfect size where you don't know everyone in your year, but you know a good amount of people. Most of the "not very diverse" students come from "the four big surrounding states" (New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Massachusetts), and tend to be from upper-middle to upper-class families. There are "more females than males," as well as a large amount of health science and law students. Most of the students "love the outdoors and enjoy looking at the mountains of Sleeping Giant State Park on their walk to class." It's a "very friendly" student body. "Everyone at Quinnipiac can find a group to fit into and feel at home," says a student. "The halls are full of people who stop to say hello and ask how you are."


From The School


Hamden, Connecticut: 8 miles north of New Haven, midway between Boston and New York City. Quinnipiac is a suburban campus with 600 acres on three sites.

A picturesque setting provides an enjoyable academic and residential campus experience for students. Ninety-five percent of freshmen choose to live on campus. A campus shuttle system provides easy access to theaters, shopping, museums, sports, recreation and a variety of area dining and entertainment options. The nearby York Hill Campus is home to the TD Bank Sports Center with 3500-seat twin arenas for basketball and ice hockey, a lodge-like student/recreation center, plus suite-style residence halls with single and double rooms, kitchens and common living areas.

Students Say

Aside from going to and from class, the average day at Quinnipiac could be filled with "a variety of campus activities, student group meetings, or special occasions." Many students choose to work out or play sports at the Recreation Center, and many student groups offer on-campus activities and lectures, such as guest speakers or performers." Most students spend their time in the library, but venture into Hamden's surrounding towns and cities, as well as hike "the Giant," which is a mountain right in front of the main campus. In fact there are "many amazing restaurants, bars, clubs, and fun things to do" within a certain radius; QU After Dark always has events, and "there is also a good amount of night-life on the weekends in New Haven."

When students involve themselves in an activity on campus, "they are in it 100 percent." For bigger events, students set fundraising goals, and "what they raise goes beyond anyone's expectations." Everyone hangs out on the quad in the nice weather, and "all of your friend's residence halls are within a five-minute walk from each other." Quinnipiac's Division 1 athletics certainly "bring everyone together" on weekends, and hockey and basketball games draw the most students. A lot of students participate in Greek Life, but no one on campus is left out:"It is a very Panhellenic community and outsiders are encouraged to participate in events and have just as much fun as the members."
