Optional Elements

Queens employs a holistic review of its applicants. Please send us anything you feel helps us know you as a person and as a student. That can include:

If you feel your test scores are not a reflection of your academic ability, do not submit them to Queens. You won't be penalized.

4. Letters of recommendation

We strongly encourage you to obtain one or more letters of recommendation from a teacher, college or guidance counselor, or community leader.

5. Federal Application for Student Aid (FAFSA)

The FAFSA is the government document that is required to qualify for federal need-based aid in the form of Pell Grants or federal loans. We strongly suggest everyone fill out the FAFSA. Queens also uses the FAFSA to determine additional need-based aid to be granted by the institution.

6. Writing supplement

There is an option on our application to submit a short-answer (up to 500 word) essay. This is another great element to strengthen your application.

* All transcripts must be included on the application regardless if transfer of credit is earned. An admissions decision will not be made until all transcripts have been received. Students who fail to disclose all transcripts are subject to having their decision rescinded.
