Admissions Requirements

 

You know you’ve found the right place.

Now what does it take to get in? For your convenience, we’ve created a list of steps you must take during the application process.

Further, our Office of International Student Services assists in meeting legal requirements for entry into the United States and maintaining legal status while studying at the University. The office also offers information and advice concerning differences in government laws and regulations, language, customs, culture and educational systems. And our contact information is listed below—we’re happy to help with any questions you may have along the way.

Note: The International Student Handbook contains further information about requirements, procedures and policies regarding our admissions process.

Admissions Requirements

  • Submit a completed International Student Application. Incomplete forms will delay a review of your application.
  • Submit a nonrefundable $50.00 application fee. Checks drawn from a U.S. bank should be made payable to Adelphi University. International money orders will not be accepted. Please do not send cash.
  • For on-campus housing starting in the fall semester, please submit the housing agreement form by May 1. Housing availability for the spring semester may be limited and is determined by the Office of Residential Life and Housing.

Students who have obtained a general equivalency diploma (GED) or who have been out of high school for one year or more will not be required to take the SAT or ACT (unless specifically requested to do so). 

English Language Requirements

Students are required to provide proof of English proficiency if English is not their native language. We require a minimum score of 80 on the TOEFL iBT or 6.5 on the IELTS. We will also accept completion of level 112 of the English for Academic Purposes Program at ELS Language Centers, which offer intensive English classes as well as cultural and social programs.

Admissions Interviews

An admissions interview, strongly recommended for all students, is required for applicants to the Honors College, and may be arranged by the applicant or requested by the Office of University Admissions. Interviews may be waived due to distance or extenuating circumstances. All records of each applicant are given careful consideration. A final evaluation is based on the abilities, purposes and interests of the candidate. The University may also require additional information, or may exempt students from certain credentials.
