We’ll help guide you through the financial aid application process.

Applying for aid is one of the most important steps students and their families can take to pay for college.

Even if you don’t qualify for an academic or talent scholarship, you may qualify for other types of aid that will support your education—including need-based grants, Federal student loans and Federal Work-Study employment.

What Should I Do First?

Complete Your FAFSA

If you’re seeking financial aid, you MUST complete this application. It’s free, and you can choose to do it online via fafsa.gov or through the myStudentAid mobile app— available from Apple App Store (iOS) and Google Play (Android).

What’s Next?

What happens after?

Your FAFSA is Processed

The U.S. Department of Education will process your FAFSA and calculate your Expected Family Contribution (EFC), which is used to help determine your eligibility for financial aid.

Review Your Student Aid Report

3-5 business days after submitting your application, you will receive an email from the Federal government showing the information you reported on your FAFSA. This is called the Student Aid Report (SAR). Review your SAR for accuracy and, if necessary, correct and resubmit the FAFSA.

Additional Info and Documentation Requests

The federal government requires Adelphi to collect specified documentation and to resolve any conflicting information. It’s important to promptly complete and submit all requests for information and documents. If you delay, it may impact your eligibility for financial assistance.

Expect an Award Letter

Once you’re accepted to Adelphi, our office will review your FAFSA and determine your aid eligibility and send you an award letter detailing your eligibility for grants, scholarships, loans and work-study programs. These types of aid can come from different sources, such as federal, state, institutional and outside sources.

Summer II Student Services - Student Financial Services: We have increased our essential employees from 5 to 11 and will continue to bring additional staff back to the office. Our blended approach will have some staff back in the office on a staggered work schedule and some staff members continuing to work remotely. The office is not open to visitors due to the tight office layout not meeting social distancing requirements and the lack of plexi-glass protective barriers necessary to meet with the public.
