At Adelphi, we believe that education is a lifelong pursuit, and we are committed to providing our students with the tools and resources they need to succeed in their careers and personal lives.

The College of Professional and Continuing Studies (CPCS) at Adelphi provides degree and non-degree programs, as well as continuing education options—personally tailored to the needs of nontraditional students. Our students benefit from an efficient admissions process, affordable tuition and fees, and flexible scheduling and advising to ensure a successful educational experience.

Mission and Vision

To be a recognized leader among private, metropolitan universities in the U.S. in providing innovative educational programs that meet the lifelong learning needs of diverse adult learners and their employers.

To enhance the professional and personal lives of diverse adult learners by providing pathways to undergraduate, graduate, and alternative credentials via high-quality programs that offer value, convenience, and relevance to the current and future job market. The College of Professional and Continuing Studies is entirely focused on helping adult learners reach their educational and career goals.

I would advise anyone looking to go back to school and complete their degree to look into Adelphi University because of how flexible it is, how understanding the professors are.
