Financial Aid

The Office of Graduate Financial Aid is available to assist students in helping them pay a graduate education. Students wishing to receive federal financial aid must be enrolled either half-time (5-8 credits) or full-time (9 or more credits) each semester. Students enrolled in 4 credits or less are considered less than half-time and would only be eligible for private educational loans.

Students applying for financial aid must annually complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at fafsa.gov and the Quinnipiac University Financial Aid application (download from QU.edu/gradforms). To be considered for University grant funds, completion of the Quinnipiac University Grant application at QU.edu/gradforms (grants are awarded to students demonstrating high financial need) is required.

In addition, students must meet University program requirements including making satisfactory academic progress (SAP) which includes passing 67 percent of all course work attempted each semester and maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better. Failure to meet these guidelines may result in not being eligible for aid.

For additional information, please contact our office. Staff can be contacted at gradfinaid@qu.edu or 203-582-8588. The Office of Graduate Financial Aid is located on the North Haven Campus in MNH-275.
