How to Apply

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.

If you are a student 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. If eligible, you’ll be notified through your Adelphi email account. This will inform you that you 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 this email, visit to purchase your books and supplies. During the checkout process you will be presented with the option to use your Title IV funds.  Once selected and you agree to the Financial Aid Terms & Conditions, you can proceed with your order.  Your 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.
