Application Information

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:
  • 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.
  • 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).
  • 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.
  • 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.
Application Forms:
Undergraduate Application
Transfer Application
Graduate Application

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.

The University has a health insurance policy designed specifically for international students. All international students are required to participate in the 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.
