Admissions to the Honors College
If you’re an intellectually curious student who has attained exceptional achievements in high school, the Honors College should be your next step.
We seek students interested in reading, writing, and thinking across disciplines! Honors undergraduates embrace an interdisciplinary core curriculum, pursue research opportunities, and seek out the vibrant cultural offerings available in the New York metro area.
Why Join the Honors College?
Our emphasis on the life of the mind and the ability to debate, evaluate evidence, and parse challenging texts prepare students well for life after college, and our graduates go on to top-tier professional and graduate programs.
We attract students who have demonstrated excellence. Here you’ll join a prestigious group of scholars who make up less than 4 percent of Adelphi undergraduates. The most recent cohort had an average GPA of 4.05 (on a 4.3 scale), an average SAT score of 1388, an average ACT score of 31 and were leaders in extracurricular or community endeavors.
Supplemental advising is available for all Honors College students to help coordinate double majors and plan a path to joint programs and professional training. Honors faculty work with students every semester to make sure they are getting the most out of their Adelphi experience.
Dedicated to Affordability
Our Office of Student Financial Services is dedicated to helping every student secure funding, and we offer a wide variety of financial assistance programs in addition to the various state and federal programs.

Depending on family need, you may also be eligible for additional grants, loans and the work-study program.
