    Undergraduate Admission Requirements/Processes

    Freshman Admission Requirements

    All applicants must submit the Application for Admission, an official high school transcript and official test scores from either ACT or SAT. (Quincy testing codes are 1120 for ACT and 1645 for SAT. Please use one of these codes in registering for the test.) In some cases, the admissions committee may also require references and/ or a writing sample.

    Like most private universities, Quincy does not set arbitrary minimum levels for test scores, nor do we require a specific pattern of courses. We recognize there can be curriculum limitations, especially in smaller high schools. As we read application files, our primary concern is that every applicant has the ability and preparation to be successful in our academic program.
    undergraduate app process

    Students are often unduly concerned about test scores. We consider test scores to be an important but clearly secondary factor in our admission decisions. A student's high school record is a far better indicator of how well he/she will do at Quincy. Our experience shows that the students who do best on our campus have a high school record that includes four years of English and three each in math, sciences and social sciences. Courses in another language, computers and the arts round out a good high school schedule.

    International Admission Requirements/Processes

    Quincy University is approved by the Immigration and Naturalization Service of the U.S. Department of Justice to accept and enroll nonimmigrant foreign students.

    DOCUMENTS AND PROCEDURES - Applicants from foreign countries must file the following credentials with the Office of Admissions by April 1 for Fall semester and by September 1 for Spring semester:

    1. A completed and signed Quincy University Application for Undergraduate Admission, including a $25 application fee. Note: International Students must sign and date a printed application for it to be considered. Online Applications will NOT be accepted for International Students.
    2. An official copy of the original transcript(s) of all high school and/or college work (an English translation of the original transcript(s) is required).
    3. All applicants from non-English speaking schools must submit the results of the "Test of English as a Foreign Language" (TOEFL). An official copy of the test scores must be sent to Quincy University by the Educational Testing Service, Princeton, NJ 08541 (Quincy University's institutional code is 1645). Generally, scores of 500 for undergraduate and 550 for graduate are acceptable evidence of a student's ability to study successfully in an English-speaking environment. If the student has taken either the ACT or SAT, those official scores should also be submitted.
    4. A financial statement (certified) attesting to the ability of the student to meet all University costs including books, residential expenses, and health insurance must be notarized and have appropriate signatures.

    After the student has been accepted by Quincy University and we have received notarized documentation of financial support, Quincy University will issue the Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant (F-1) Student Status (I-20), which is necessary to obtain a visa from an American Embassy to enter and study in the United States. A certified check payable in U.S. dollars covering the total semester cost for tuition, fees, room, board, and health insurance must be received in the Office of Admissions by August 1 for Fall semester and December 15 for Spring semester.

    All international students are required to participate in a health insurance program. Upon arrival, international students must understand that because of varying educational standards, they are subject to examination and evaluation at the discretion of University officials to assure proper placement in classes. All entering international students will be required to take the Nelson Denny reading examination and also write a short essay in English before they are allowed to register for classes.

    Professional Studies Program Admission Process/Requirements

    Individuals wishing to enroll in the Professional Studies Program must:

    • Be 24 years of age or older and have been out of high school for 7 or more years.
    • Provide official transcripts documenting all college/university credit.
    • Have completed an applicable Associate Degree Program or approximately 60 hours of transferable credit with a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or better.

    Students may apply for the Professional Studies Program by returning a Quincy University Professional Studies Program Application for Admissions to the Quincy University Office of Adult Studies.

    Program Requirements
    All majors within the Professional Studies Program require that the student complete a minimum of 124 semester hours of college credit that have been approved and accepted by Quincy University. This includes six credit hours of theology or religion coursework. Many associate degree programs require only 50-55 credit hours, which when combined with the 48 credit hours of the Professional Studies Program degree does not give the student the 124 credit hours needed for graduation. These electives may be completed in a variety of different ways including taking additional courses at a two-year college, taking electives at Quincy University, taking distance education or online courses which are transferable to QU, or CARE Credits.

    CARE Credits
    Quincy University grants credit in certain cases for practical or life experiences which are related to the academic content of a regular QU course. Such credit is referred to as Credit for Academically Related Experience (CARE credit). Assistance in making application to receive such credit is available through the Office of Adult Studies. The CARE Credit Review Committee and the Vice President for Academic Affairs review all CARE credit applications and professional portfolios.

    Tuition (per credit hour) $345
    General Fee (per credit hour) $15
