Application Process

You're about to graduate from high school or you're transferring from another institution, and you're looking for a classic college experience on campus. Begin your application process here.

Required Elements

1. Online application

Queens' application includes an essay, as well as a report of your extracurricular activity including clubs, organizations, athletics, paid employment and other responsibilities. 

Queens also accepts the Common App.

2. Official high school transcript*

Request from your high school.

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:

3. Official SAT or ACT scores

We encourage you to submit your SAT or ACT score. Most applicants do. You can download the official PDF of your test scores on the College Board or ACT website, and email it to admissions@queens.edu. Or you can have the testing agency send it to us directly using these codes:

Queens SAT code: 5560
Queens ACT code: 3148

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. When you start your application, simply select "no" under testing plan when asked if you plan to submit your test scores. Learn more about our test optional admission plan.

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.

Students will receive a $500 filing reward every year they are at Queens (up to four years) for submitting the FAFSA. International students requiring a visa to study in the U.S. and students taking 11 hours or less per credit hour are not eligible.

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.
