Apply to Queens University of Charlotte


Application Process

We’re excited to partner with you as you navigate your college selection experience. The instructions below are for you if you are looking for a college community where you’ll be challenged and supported en route to reaching your goals.

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. Unsure of what holistic means? Keep reading! It means we’re going to see you as a whole person. You are more than numbers on a page, and so we want to know YOU. Your application essay certainly helps but who can really distill their whole life down to 600 words or less?

Answer: Nobody. SO, what else do you think is important to share with us that helps us see you fully?

Some suggestions below:

1. Interviews

Interviews are a great way for us to get to know you and for you to get to know us. We want to meet you and to put a face with a name. Feeling a little uncertain? Perhaps a bit nervous? These folks are friendly and here to help you. We’re committed to having a good time in the conversation and can’t wait to meet you. Sign up for a tour and to plan your interview here.

2. Supplemental Essays

Like writing? Share more of your writing with us through one of our optional essays! We want to see you where you shine.

3. Letters of Recommendation

Do you work with a teacher, school counselor, or community leader who knows you really well? If you do, we’d love to hear from them through a letter of recommendation.

4. Official SAT or ACT scores

We want to take this opportunity to let you know that you are more than numbers, and that Queens University of Charlotte is permanently an ACT and SAT test-optional college.  We care deeply about what you are doing each day in your community. If you want to take an SAT or ACT, that is completely your choice. If you do not want to take an SAT or an ACT, that is also completely your choice. We’ll support whatever decision you choose. Your application will be complete and fully considered whether you send us scores or not.

If you want complete your application without test scores, make sure to select “no” under testing plan. If you forget or change your mind later, reach out to your admission counselor, and we can update that for you.

If you want to complete your application with test scores, send us a PDF of your score report to admissions@queens.edu or have the testing agency send your scores directly to us using these codes:

Queens SAT code: 5560
Queens ACT code: 3148

* 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.
