  • Veterans are allowed to begin classes pending completion of their application and provision of supporting documents.
  • Late admission or re-admission fees are waived for all new or re-admitted veteran or currently enlisted students.


  • There is no academic penalty for early withdrawal in a semester.
  • Any reservist or enlisted student recalled to active duty away from campus who cannot continue their studies can withdraw from courses at any point and not be subject to academic or financial penalties, unless they are also receiving federal student aid.
  • Students who have nearly completed a course or courses may choose to take a grade of incomplete and then complete the course after they return from active duty.
  • All University tuition and fees for the semester in which they withdraw will be negated and will not be charged to their overall G.I. Bill benefits.

Financial Aid
The latest legislative information indicates that active, reserve and veteran military students who enroll in undergraduate or graduate programs at Adelphi should be covered for their tuition costs by the new G.I. Bill. Students enrolled in more than 12 credits per semester should be covered for tuition costs through a combination of the G.I. Bill and Adelphi’s Yellow Ribbon Program.
