Parents of Adelphi Students
Adelphi Parent Orientation,
Parents and families are an important part of the Adelphi Community. Whether your student has been attending Adelphi for one or more semesters, is getting started at AU as a first college experience, or is transferring from another institution, all parents and guardians want to be informed. Various resources are available to provide information and updates about Adelphi University, including the Parent Handbook (PDF 5MB) and Adelphi eNews.
Parents Association, and More
Parents of incoming freshman students are encouraged to attend Adelphi's Parent Orientation and Matriculation Day. The Parent Orientation program provides information about academic programs and campus services available at Adelphi. Matriculation Day is a time-honored formal ceremony to welcome freshmen to the community of scholars. Parents who have attended in previous years have commented on how special this program is.
As a parent or guardian of an undergraduate student, you are automatically a member of Adelphi's Parents Association. We encourage you to attend meetings to meet other Adelphi parents and stay informed about resources and programs that support to Adelphi students.
For parents of residential students, answers to frequently asked questions are available on the Residential Life and Housing site to help guide you in moving your student into campus housing. Commuter Students also have many services available such as the Commuter Student Organization, Commuter Assistants and the Commuter Hot Line.
As a member of the larger Adelphi family, we welcome you to campus to cheer on an Adelphi athletic team or attend a lecture, exhibition, or performance. Check the Cultural Events Calendar and the AU Panthers Athletics website for upcoming events.
Again, whether your family is beginning or continuing at Adelphi, our intent is to help you along the way, keeping you up to date on services, programs and events. Please consult Adelphi’s website for details. For additional information, or to direct comments or questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Welcome to the Adelphi community.
Student Privacy and Communicating with Parents
Parents should be aware that federal law (the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, also known as “FERPA” or the “Buckley Amendment”) limits the information concerning students that the University can make available to third parties, including parents.
