Adelphi Scholarships and Grants 2018-19

Adelphi offers awards based on talent, merit and financial need.

Adelphi University has made a substantial commitment to make the cost of attending the University more affordable through its institutional scholarship and grant programs. Grants are usually based on financial need and scholarships are generally based on merit, talent or other criteria. A separate application is not required to be considered for most Adelphi merit scholarships; new students are automatically considered upon acceptance to the University. University grants are awarded to students who have filed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), demonstrate need, and submit any required paperwork within the established priority deadlines.

Below is a list of our available scholarship and grant programs summarizing the terms and conditions for each award.

Transfer Merit Awards

New transfer students are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships upon their acceptance to the University; a separate application is not required to be considered for most Adelphi merit scholarships. Eligible students will receive a Scholarship Letter from the Admissions Office notifying them of their eligibility. Awards are renewed each year subject to the terms and conditions outlined for each award.

To ensure maximum eligibility for other sources of financial aid, applicants are encouraged to file the FAFSA as soon as possible after October 1, 2017, but no later than the priority deadline. After filing the FAFSA, the student will receive a Financial Assistance Plan (Award Letter) detailing their financial aid awards. A letter will be sent to the student if additional information is required to determine their eligibility for need based funding. All requested documentation must be submitted as soon as possible to ensure receipt of limited funds.

Institutional scholarships and grants are applicable to tuition and, in some cases, fees. The University reserves the right to adjust the financial assistance previously awarded when these awards in combination with other sources of assistance exceed the cost of tuition and fees, including BUT not limited to Veterans Affairs educational benefits, external awards and state scholarships and grants.

Undergraduate scholarships and grants are generally awarded for full-time enrollment. The University’s full-time attendance enrollment requirement may be eliminated in cases of qualifying disabilities as deemed appropriate by the Student Access Office. For more information about this waiver of the full-time enrollment requirement, please contact the Office of Student Financial Services. 

Note about non-degree, certificate programs or programs not offered at our main Garden City location: Please consult with the Office of Student Financial Services about aid eligibility as aid eligibility may differ from what is available to students enrolled in programs leading to a degree or students who attend our other locations.
