Transfer to Adelphi. Transform your academic experience.

You started your educational journey elsewhere—and we’re here to see you cross the finish line into a career of purpose. This starts with a streamlined, straightforward admissions process. Your dedicated transfer counselor will get to know you and your past academic experience, ensure you’re getting credit for as much of your previous coursework as possible, and help customize your pathway toward completion. After that? Well, you get to experience all that is Adelphi.

You will become part of a diverse and supportive community at a university that’s committed to transforming lives through a unique, personalized approach to education. You’ll learn from distinguished faculty members in small classes, participate in life-changing internships and other hands-on opportunities, establish connections with your classmates and future employers, receive individualized and award-winning career guidance, and get academic and personal support when and where you need it, every step of the way.

Speaking of steps…why not take the first one? Let’s meet for a transcript evaluation soon.

Returning to college after taking some time off?

If it’s been a few semesters or even years since you’ve last attended school, that’s OK too. We typically accept transfer credits earned at a regionally accredited college or university within the past 10 years. And, if you are returning to school while managing work, military service, family life or other priorities, Adelphi’s College of Professional and Continuing Studies offers dozens of degree programs designed for working adults; attend full or part time, on campus or online.

Check out our transfer resources.

The online Transfer Evaluation System (TES) is a helpful starting point to see how your current credits align with Adelphi’s offerings. Since course titles and content vary from school to school—and because we sometimes consider credits from more than 10 years ago and even past employment and military service—TES might only give you part of the story. That’s why we strongly encourage you to meet one on one with a transfer admissions counselor. We can help you maximize your prior experiences, which means you could save on tuition and graduate sooner.
