Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.81 Average Rating
Quinnipiac has the potential to drain your bank account. The school has a very pricey tuition, one that can daunt even the wealthiest parents. We pay almost as much as many of the private ivy league schools - and it's completely worth it!! Nearly everyone at school will agree, they'd agree to have a ton of student loan debt once they graduate then ever transfer out. It's an amazing school, one that's worth every penny.
Gray from Kinnelon, NJ
It is VERY expensive to go here, but in my opinion it is worth the debt because I'm having the time of my life! The only bad thing is that the food in the Cafe and the Bobcat Den is way over priced and your meal plan will go quickly, so you have to ration it and sometimes mooch off of others with more on their meal plan :P
Mark from Medford, MA
Although Quinnipiac University is seen as very expensive, attending here is worth every penny! The quality of the classes at Quinnipiac and the opportunities provided by the school are worth the entirety of the tuition. The classes are rigorous enough to provide substantial education. Also the scholarship, internship, and career opportunities aided by the school are all worth the money spent for attending.
Chelsea from Wallingford, CT
It's pretty pricey here but for the most part it really is worth it. Somethings could be enhanced such as the options for food but that shouldn't make up your mind about a school anyways. I really love it here, I feel so at home. I have made so many close friends and I learn so much everyday! You will really have a great experience here and the price will be worth it when you graduate with a great degree from a highly accredited school such as this one.
Lindsay from Southbury, CT
Yes, Quinnipiac is on the expensive side but I think it will be one the most worthwhile expenses I will ever make. You may hear that QU is a bunch of rich, preppy students but honestly if you walk around campus you will see that there are some, yes, but a lot of the students very friendly and welcoming and give this campus a great community feel. I come from a small school in NH and we aren't the wealthiest family and yet I get the opportunity of a big school with the same close knit feeling that I had in high school.
Lyndsey from Enfield, NH
If you're either a health science, business or communications student, the price of the school is definitely worth it. PT, OT, PA and nursing students are automatically accepted into the graduate programs they applied for as incoming freshmen so there is no re-applying process unless you are transferring into one. Business and communications students use state of the art equipment to prepare them for real world work. Internship opportunities and career fairs are always run on campus and many of our alumni now work for world recognized companies and networks. The campus is beautiful and everything is well kept.
Kaitlin from Commack, NY
Tuition is fairly expensive, but there are great benefits for students because of it. Quinnipiac offers a free shuttle service running from all campus locations into New Haven, a city close by with a great night life, and into the towns of Hamden and North Haven for all your shopping and dining needs. The school also puts on weekly programming events, most of which are free. This includes events with comedians, movies, food, and novelties. There is also housing available from freshman year to senior year, which is rare at many other schools. We have a state-of-the-art athletic facility, and all ice-hockey and basketball games are free to students.
Valerie - PA
Though it is quite expensive, the people you meet, the education you get, and the things you learn with all make up for it. The price is nothing compared to the experiences you will have there.
