Admissions

 
 

Adelphi has a long and rich history of supporting military personnel.

Adelphi is an ideal university for military students. We’re a Yellow Ribbon school, and we have been ranked by the U.S. News and World Report as one of the Best Colleges for Veterans. In fact, we are ranked No. 45 in the country in the publication’s most recent listing.

Active, reserve and veteran military students using Post-9/11 G.I. Bill benefits or any other veterans affairs program benefits can apply and enroll in any of our associate, bachelor’s, credit certificate, master’s or doctoral programs across our eight schools and colleges. Whether you are interested in undergraduate or graduate programs, our goal is to create a smooth and efficient application experience for you.

Adelphi is a member of the Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC) Consortium, a group of colleges and universities dedicated to helping servicemembers and their families earn college degrees.
 We’re also a member of the Concurrent Admissions Program (ConAP), which allows soon-to-enlist or currently enlisted military personnel to enroll in and complete college courses while they continue their service commitments.
