Applying to College as a Veteran

An application to Adelphi for military veterans is both simple and life-changing.

Applying to college after leaving the military, or while still active, is a monumental decision that will shape the course of your life. At Adelphi, we strive to make the application process for veterans and military personnel as smooth and simple as possible. Military personnel follow the same admissions process that traditional students follow when applying to Adelphi:

» First-year

» Transfer

» Graduate and Doctoral

» International

However, there are unique advantages and benefits for military and veteran applicants that you should consider.

Our various degree programs can have different application deadlines, so please refer to those program websites for specific information. We’ve also gathered military-specific financial aid information for your convenience.

College Application Fee Waiver and Other Benefits for Veterans

Regardless of the program you are applying to, any military student that plans to use G.I. Bill benefits should follow this general application process:

  • Complete an online application to Adelphi or call 800.ADELPHI to have a paper application mailed to you; there is no application fee for any active, reserve and veteran military applicant
  • If eligible, complete a VONAPP (online application) for veterans affairs benefits
  • Even if you may be covered completely by veterans affairs education benefits, complete an online Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form for federal and state financial aid
  • Contact the Office of the University Registrar to notify them of your active, reserve or veteran military status, and your plans, if any, to use G.I. Bill benefits
  • Contact a pre-enrollment academic adviser at Adelphi who specializes in assisting active, reserve and veteran military students; the adviser can assist you with all application and enrollment questions (see contact information below)
