To be eligible for this tuition guarantee as a transfer student, you must have a 3.5. cumulative GPA from your college level work completed after high school, have residency in New York, New Jersey, or Connecticut, and file a FAFSA resulting in an expected family contribution (EFC) at or below “100000.”
Who is not eligible? Current students, students applying to our accelerated nursing program, students in our College of Professional and Continuing Studies, students using programs with previously discounted Adelphi tuition rates, and those applying for readmission.
