Freshman Decision Policy:

Adelphi University makes every effort to notify candidates of their admission decision approximately three weeks after receiving a completed application.

Early Action: December 1

Adelphi’s Office of University Admissions prioritizes the review of Early Action candidates who have completed applications, including all supporting material, submitted by December 1. These applicants will be notified of our decision of the Office of University Admissions by December 31.

In some cases, the Admissions Committee may defer making a final decision until it has received a report of the candidate’s midterm grades, additional scores or until a personal interview takes place.

Candidates’ Reply Date: May 1

On May 1, admitted students should notify the Office of University Admissions of their intent with regard to enrollment. Commitments received after this date will be considered on a space-available basis for enrollment and housing.

Admissions Events

Special events for incoming freshman, transfer, international, and graduate students are scheduled regularly at Adelphi’s Garden City campus. Additional events are also held at each of Adelphi’s three centers, in Manhattan, Hauppauge, and the Hudson Valley.
