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.

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.
