Early Summer Start

Your Next Steps

Let's make it official

Celebrate your admission to the University, meet fellow admitted students and explore all that Duquesne has to offer. Choose one event or make it a weekend in Pittsburgh! There are also virtual events and school specific events.
  • The Admitted Student Day: Main Event is an all-inclusive event on April 16.
  • The Preview Days include Academic showcases on select Mondays and Student Life Fridays (Preview days will have limited availability so sign up today!)

Making it a weekend getaway or coming in from out of town?

We have partnerships with several hotels near campus and an exclusive offer for Duquesne visitors at the Drury Hotel: Admitted Student Events
Duquesne might be in your area! Celebrate with us at a reception near you or join us on campus for an admitted student event.

Submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid if you have not already. 

  • Duquesne's Federal School Code is 003258
  • PA residents should apply by May 1 if they are seeking funds from the PA State Grant - and be sure to check out Duquesne's new automatic matching grant of up to $10,000 over four years
  • Your MultiPass account provides access to everything as a student, including your DU email and Blackboard.
  • Once you set up your MultiPass you will be able to use it to access the New Student Checklist - your resource for information for new students, steps for setting up your DU card, and more.

The housing application will open February 1 to those who have already committed to Duquesne by submitting their deposit. After that date you will receive the application after you submit your deposit.
