We want to make it easy to navigate your way through Adelphi’s admissions process.
General Information on Admissions & Financial Aid

Yes! Our office is open and operational. We continue to work with students and families both virtually and in-person. Our team is working regular business hours (Monday–Thursday, 8:30 a.m.–6:00 p.m., Friday, 8:30 a.m.–5:00 p.m. EST) in order to assist you.

We’re happy to help however we can!
We encourage you to submit your FAFSA as soon as possible in order to receive your financial aid package. Any student or family who has not yet completed a FAFSA may still do so at studentaid.gov/fafsa. The federal government is continuing the processing of these applications — we look forward to receiving yours!
Our staff is continuing to process financial aid packages on a rolling basis. Once your FAFSA is complete and received, a financial aid informational sheet will be sent to the email address we have on file for you.
If you have filed your FAFSA and have not yet received your award, please contact our office at 516.877.3080 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be happy to review your file and let you know if there is any further information required in order to complete your request for financial aid.
For those who have completed a FAFSA, and whose financial circumstances have changed considerably due to COVID-19, we encourage you to reach out to our Office of Student Financial Services at 516.877.3080 or at email@example.com. Our team of financial aid counselors will provide you with additional guidance.
For Accepted First-Year & Transfer Students
We will gladly extend flexibility as needed. If you need additional time to decide, simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to update us on your enrollment status or to request a deposit extension.

Yes! We will award credit for appropriate scores on AP or IB exams. We will accept up to 30 college credits earned during high school. You are encouraged to submit your score results, or other official college transcripts to the Office of University Admissions for transfer credit review. For more information about our course equivalents for AP/IB credit, please visit our advanced placement credit page.
Yes. If you are interested in deferring your acceptance to Spring 2022 or Fall 2022, please confirm your request with email@example.com and the admissions team will update your application preferences. As we approach your desired term, the Office of University Admissions will be in touch with you to request updated transcripts (if applicable), send you updated acceptance information and lend guidance on your transition to the University.
For First-Year & Transfer Applicants
We are able to make admissions decisions based on unofficial documents for the time being. Unofficial documents are documents that are not sent by the school or institution directly. Please note that we will accept PDF documents of unofficial transcripts, but screenshots are not permitted. If admitted, you will receive confirmation from us that your acceptance to Adelphi is contingent upon receipt of a final official transcript, once it is available.
We are aware of multiple disruptions including decreased access to standardized testing and other resources. Adelphi University is SAT/ACT optional for fall 2021, spring 2022, fall 2022 and spring 2023 admissions. First-year students will be considered for admission and scholarship in absence of these test scores.
For international applicants, if you do not have access to TOEFL or IELTS exams, Adelphi will be accepting the Duolingo English Test for admission to the fall 2021, spring 2022, fall 2022, and spring 2023 semesters. Our minimum score is 110 for all standard programs (undergraduate and graduate).
For transfer nursing applicants, Adelphi accepts the online version of the ATI-TEAS exam for the ATI-TEAS exam requirement.
Prospective applicants will not be penalized for opting to receive pass/fail marks on their transcripts due to an unexpected shift to remote learning. Adelphi University will also consider the impacts of COVID-19 on the learning environment in our evaluation of incoming college credit. We will evaluate acceptance of non-letter grades (Pass or Satisfactory) coursework for credit; ultimate acceptance will vary by program and semester of course taken. Individual program requirements for major-specific curriculum will be reviewed on an individual basis.
Adelphi looks forward to resuming its in-person Summer Pre-College Program in Summer 2022. This summer, we encourage high school students to explore our Summer 2021 Virtual Pre-College Certificate Program, a 4-day non-credit experience where you’ll participate in academic and college-readiness workshops from Monday, August 2 through Thursday, August 5, 2021.
If you have questions, please reach out our Precollege Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes. Admission to Adelphi University is currently SAT/ACT optional for high school students applying for admission for spring 2022, fall 2022 and spring 2023 entry terms. Students will have the option, but not the requirement, to submit the SAT or ACT for admission and scholarship consideration.
For Graduate Students
Deposits are accepted on a rolling basis for most programs.
