New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation

We are so excited to welcome our newest Panthers to Adelphi. This summer’s orientation for new students will include everything you need to prepare for life as a Panther and get to know the Adelphi community.

On-Demand Orientation Experience

New students and their families are invited to access our Panther Portal, an on-demand virtual orientation experience designed to help you learn all about Adelphi’s academics, support services, student life, campus safety, and financial aid. This module will be available for you beginning early June to explore and complete at your own pace throughout the summer.

Orientation & Welcome Weekend

After completing the Panther Portal, new Panthers will kick off their journey at Adelphi with our orientation and welcome weekend experience.

Important Dates
