Mission Statement

The mission of Quinnipiac University's online programs is to partner with all university schools and colleges to deliver high-quality, student-centric academic programs in a virtual, collaborative classroom.

About Online Learning

Quinnipiac University was an early adopter of online learning, having launched its first online programs in 2001. Over the years, Quinnipiac has developed a high level of expertise in the design and delivery of online learning. Online programs allow students to complete their course work weekly without attending class at a scheduled date and time.

In addition to traditional on-campus programs, Quinnipiac University offers online bachelor’s degree completion, master’s degree, doctoral degree and certificate programs through the university’s School of Business, School of Communications, School of Computing and Engineering, School of Education, School of Nursing and School of Health Sciences.

Quinnipiac University also offers undergraduate courses online during the summer. This popular option allows students to advance in their programs, catch up on required or prerequisite courses or expedite their time to degree completion. For information on summer program offerings, visit Quinnipiac's online programs website.

Quinnipiac University's online programs offer students the best of both worlds by combining convenience and flexibility with an educational community that encourages personal connections, faculty guidance and the opportunity to consult and collaborate with peers.

International Student Admission

Applications for graduate study from international students are welcomed.

All applicants from non-English-speaking countries must, in addition to all of the regular admissions requirements, provide TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) scores (go to ets.org). In general, a minimum TOEFL iBT score of 90, Internet-based (575 paper-based, 233 computer-based) is required for admission. In lieu of TOEFL, applicants may submit IELTS (International English Language Testing System) scores (go to ielts.org). A minimum score of 6.5 on this exam, “B” or above on the CAE (Certificate of Advanced English), or “C” or above on the CPE (Certificate of Proficiency in English) is required.

Graduate

Graduate course credit completed with a grade of B or better at other regionally accredited institutions may be transferred into a graduate program at Quinnipiac. Requests for transfer of credit must be submitted to the appropriate graduate program director along with official transcripts from the institution(s) where the credits were earned. Ordinarily, transfer of credit is granted for courses demonstrated to be similar in content, level of instruction and objectives to courses within a student’s graduate curriculum at Quinnipiac.

The Professional MBA program accepts up to 3 credits. The MS in Business Analytics program accepts up to 3 credits.

Graduate-level courses taken to complete a degree program at Quinnipiac may be applied to a second graduate degree. These courses must be part of the approved curriculum of the second degree. Further, a minimum of 15 credits of additional coursework must be completed before the conferral of a second degree.

Financial Aid

Our goal at Quinnipiac University Online Financial Aid is to provide students with the adequate financial aid resources needed to pursue their educational goals without financial disruption. Our office provides students with courteous and efficient service while complying with all federal, state and university policies and regulations.

Students seeking financial aid must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and use school code 001402.

Students are encouraged to complete their financial aid paperwork as early as possible to ensure timely processing of aid prior to the beginning of their start term. Bills are due approximately one month prior to the start of classes, so it is important to allow adequate processing time to remain in good standing with the university.

To be eligible for financial aid students must:

  1. be a U.S. citizen, permanent resident or eligible non-citizen
  2. satisfy any outstanding requirements that arise from the processing of the FAFSA
  3. register with the Selective Service System at sss.gov (male students)
  4. be accepted by Quinnipiac into a degree program
  5. meet the university’s minimum satisfactory academic progress standards for continuation of aid
  6. register at least half-time (5-8 credits for graduate students; 6 credits for undergraduate students)

Upon successful completion of the financial aid process, students receive an offer letter via their Quinnipiac University email account that outlines all of the aid for which they qualify. Students can accept or decline the award and apply for additional resources to cover their balance, if needed. Students also have the option to apply for private loans, outside scholarships, payment plans or veterans’ benefits (if applicable).

For complete details on financial aid programs, visit qu.edu. We would also like to stress that our main mode of communication with our online students is through their Quinnipiac email account, so please remember to check it often!
