No registrations will be accepted after the deadline. Both University and state guidelines prevent retroactive registrations (registering for a class taken in a past semester) and students who miss posted deadlines will not be eligible for credits that semester.
Registration is completed on a semester, not yearly, basis here at Adelphi. For example, if you wish to take a course in the Fall and in the Spring, you must register separately for each semester. Please consult the Enrollment Timetable page to review important registration deadlines.
High school juniors and seniors with strong academic records are eligible to participate in the High School Program. In consultation with Adelphi University, the high school makes recommendations about each individual student’s eligibility and participation. A list of participating high schools is available here.
The difference between the High School Program and the A.P. Program is that the award of college credit in the High School Program does not depend on a score achieved on a single examination, as is the case in the A.P. Program. Adelphi creditis awarded based on the grade you earn for the work you accomplish during the semester.
The number of courses you take each semester depends partly on how many courses your high school offers and on your own academic capabilities. Because the work is demanding, we suggest students participate in a maximum of two classes for Adelphi credit per semester.
High school faculty members who hold a Master’s Degree in the subject area they teach (or a Master’s Degree in Education and concentration in subject are) and who have 3 years of teaching experience qualify to teach High School Program courses. After being nominated by school officials and approved by the respective Adelphi departments, instructors work closely with our faculty to prepare course curricula.
Although we cannot guarantee transfer credit in advance, most colleges accept Adelphi credits. According to surveys, more than 90 percent of the students who apply for college credit receive it at a variety of post-secondary institutions across the country. Please keep in mind, credit transfer practices vary by school. Students may receive elective credits, advanced standing placement, requirement waivers, or some combination of the above. We highly recommend that students contact colleges that they are interested in attending and ask about transfer credit policies.
Grades are not automatically sent out to students unless a transcript is requested. Unfortunately, the Office of High School and Pre-College Programs cannot give out grades over the phone or by email. The quickest way to obtain a grade is for the student to consult his/her high school teacher.
The University requires payment for courses at the time of registration. Please Note All Payments Are Non-Refundable. Payment is $345* per course and is made online when you register with Visa, Master Card or electronic check.

Most institutions do not use course grades for transfer credit in their determination of a student’s GPA at that school. However, the grade you earn in your course is part of your permanent record at Adelphi University and will count toward your GPA if you attend Adelphi University. If you are concerned about how your grades earned in Adelphi University courses will affect your GPA, you should contact the Registrar at the university you plan to attend for more information.
