Federal and State Financial Assistance

 
 
 

Grants are awarded based on financial need and eligibility.

Federal grants are offered to students who file the FAFSA and demonstrate financial need. New York State offers grants to eligible residents who submit a separate application. Grants do not require repayment.

All students applying for federal and state financial assistance must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Processed applications must be received no later than the student’s last date of enrollment for the academic year. In addition, the federal government requires our office to collect specified documentation and to resolve any conflicting information.

Promptly complete and submit all requested information and documentation. A delay in submitting documentation may impact your eligibility for financial assistance.

Students who are receiving Federal financial assistance (Title IV financial aid including grants and loans) in excess of their institutional charges will have money available for books and supplies beginning 10 days before the beginning of the semester. Following are the steps in this process:

  1. Eligible students will be notified through their Adelphi email account informing them that they qualify for an advance of funds for books/supplies.
  2. An email will also be sent to the Adelphi bookstore indicating maximum eligibility for the anticipated books/supplies credit. The maximum will be the lesser of the anticipated credit balance or $510 per semester.
  3. After receiving the email students will visit the Adelphi bookstore and make books/supplies purchases. The Adelphi student account will be billed for the amount of this anticipated credit and will be adjusted based on actual usage.
  4. If you wish to opt out of this process you must respond via the instructions included in your email.
  5. The anticipated credit balance is subject to change if there are revisions to the financial aid awards. Changes in enrollment, housing status and cost of attendance or application information may cause revisions to financial aid awards.

The eligibility for specific grants is outlined below. Students must meet standards of satisfactory academic progress to receive financial assistance. Detailed information regarding these standards will accompany your Financial Plan Summary (Award Letter).

A one-time waiver may be granted to the recipient of federal financial assistance who fails to make satisfactory academic progress. The student must initiate the request for the waiver through the Office of Academic Services and Retention and must be able to document one of three reasons for the request: death in the student’s family, serious illness of the student or other mitigating circumstances beyond the student’s control. Approval of the waiver is not automatic. After a careful review of the documentation, the student will be notified in writing if the one-time waiver will be granted.
