Congratulations on your acceptance to Adelphi University.

First, to be considered for on-campus housing, your tuition deposit, housing deposit and Housing Agreement Form must be received by May 1. Learn more about our residence halls.

Once you've paid your tuition deposit , you'll receive a New Student Kit in the mail. It contains a map of the campus and time-sensitive material, including a calendar of important dates and orientation registration forms. You will also find out how to chat with other accepted students through the first-year student message board.

Accepted Student Day (for accepted freshman students only) provides an opportunity for you to visit the campus, meet other accepted students, talk with current students and professors and get answers to all those last-minute questions you may have.

And you can join our Accepted Students Facebook Group to connect with other accepted students from home. You can also stay up to date with everything Adelphi at our main Facebook page and on Twitter.

Finally, talking face-to-face with a current Adelphi student is a great way to get started. We're happy to arrange this for you. Please complete the online form if you'd like to talk with an Adelphi student.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Adelphi community. Again, congratulations on your acceptance to Adelphi University!

Best wishes,
Kristen E. Capezza
Director of Undergraduate Admissions
