Every Adelphi student who applies for financial aid is assigned a cost of attendance.

This provides you with an estimated cost to attend Adelphi each year. Made up of direct costs (those billed by Adelphi including tuition, fees, and housing and meal plans) and indirect costs (estimates of additional costs you may pay during your time as a student such as books, supplies, transportation and personal expenses), your cost of attendance will vary based on your level of study.

More Affordable Than You May Think

Your cost will depend on several factors, including which program of study you apply to, if you are a New York state resident, and where you will be living.

For many students, applying for financial aid will significantly reduce the amount they will pay each year. An important component of our financial aid packages are Adelphi University scholarships and grants – that is, free money that does not need to be repaid. The overall price is also reduced through loans and work-study – money students earn during the academic year.

Total Annual Cost for Family

Parents pay based off their income and assets. Students earn money during the summer.

After factoring in Adelphi’s institutional aid as well as loans and work-study, the remaining expenses are the estimated total annual cost for each family. This is a combination of both the:

  • Parent contribution (determined through the FAFSA by income, assets, family size and number of undergraduates in college)
  • Student contribution, which is the amount students are asked to contribute to the cost of their education through summer employment and a portion of their savings

Remaining unmet costs may be addressed through outside scholarships, private loans, and special payment plans.
