Academic Student Services
Academic advising gives students the tools needed to create their academic paths, find new interests and succeed. The professional academic advising staff in the Office of Academic Services and Retention is committed to helping students craft a coherent educational plan that allows them to reach their academic goals and make timely progress toward completing their degree.
The Learning Center promotes not only academic success, but also an enriched scholastic experience. We foster critical thinking and the development of creative strategies and offer a springboard into the intellectual world beyond college through tutoring and skill development. Through the use of tutors and peer support, students can have the enrichment they need for their academic success.
The Writing Center is a free service available to all Adelphi University undergraduate and graduate students. We can assist students in all disciplines to become more effective and confident writers and to hone the craft of critical thinking in approaching the writing process.
Academic coaching is an interactive process that focuses on the personal relationship created between the student and the coach. The coach challenges the student to think about his or her personal and/or professional goals in order to relate them to his or her academic/educational goals. This is an ideal program for students on probation or at risk of dismissal. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Learning Resource Program is a support program designed specifically for students with language-based learning disabilities and/or ADHD. It provides students who face additional learning challenges with the professional expertise required to realize their academic potential and achieve their goals. With more than 40 years of groundbreaking experience in promoting student achievement, the Learning Resource Program is staffed with professionals who provide coaching, instruction, advisement and counseling. This is a fee-for-service program.

The Office of the University Registrar is responsible for many services, including student registration, enrollment verification, grading, academic transcripts, degree audits, graduation applications and certification, veteran benefits certification, classroom scheduling, bulletin maintenance, state and federal enrollment reporting, and FERPA compliance.
Staffed by a psychiatrist, licensed clinical psychologists, social workers, graduate-level social work interns, and doctoral-level clinical psychology interns, the center can provide a student with the services and support to help the student define and accomplish their personal, academic and professional goals. Students receive clinical services to support them through their tenure at Adelphi.
Food insecurity can be found anywhere—even on a college campus. Adelphi’s Panther Pantry can help, providing vulnerable members of our community with basic food items, free of charge. The pantry addresses other needs, too, offering personal care products, clothing and household items. All are free for the asking. Just drop by the pantry or order online from our virtual menu. Either way, we’ll protect a student’s privacy, as all pantry use is confidential.
The Student Access Office is a vital campus resource and achieves their mission by:
- providing cost-free assistance and services that are tailored to meet the needs of individuals based on their specific, appropriately documented needs, while preserving Adelphi’s academic integrity and high standards of academic expectations and performance
- encouraging independence through the training of students with disabilities to effectively advocate for themselves within the University community
- serving as a liaison and resource for University faculty, staff and administrators to foster a greater awareness and appreciation of issues of concern to people with different needs.
The Health Services Center is dedicated to serving your health needs on a daily basis, while encouraging you to integrate a healthy lifestyle into a student’s personal, academic and career goals. Outside of promoting health awareness, we also maintain a top-tier emergency response team, which responds to any accidents or injuries involving any person on campus. Primary and urgent healthcare, health clearances, routine women’s healthcare, emergency response, and wellness education are all part of our mission.
The Center for Career and Professional Development collaborates with students, faculty, alumni, university colleagues and employers to build partnerships that enhance career development and generate career-based experiential education and employment opportunities for students and alumni. Career counselors are available to advise students on their many choices as they build a résumé throughout their years in college. The Center has current information about campus and off-campus part-time employment, seasonal employment and volunteer opportunities. Workshops are offered regularly in résumé writing and interview skills, which prepare our graduating students for the job search.

The program is designed to serve the following populations:

- LGBTQIA+ students
