Quincy University is a four-year private school located in Quincy, Illinois. This school is a liberal arts Catholic university in the Franciscan tradition. A small group of Franciscan friars left Germany in 1858 and created the school then known as St. Francis Solana College in 1860. In 1917, the name was changed again to Quincy College and Seminary due to its high ratings for training programs for priests. Women were admitted to the college in 1932. In 1970, the seminary part of the school was closed and the school became Quincy College, which was located north of today’s main campus. The school was renamed to Quincy University in 1993 after they received the ability to grant graduates degrees.
Quincy University offers associate’s degrees, bachelor’s degrees, and master’s degrees. Distance education is used through a partnership with The Learning House, Inc. Some bachelor's and master's degrees can be earned completely online.
