Our $3,000 Enhanced Assistance Grant

Adelphi continues our commitment to college affordability.

Our new Adelphi Enhanced Assistance Grant helps students nationwide afford the personalized education offered by Adelphi. New for Fall 2018, this grant is considered gift aid so it does not have to be repaid. 

While New York State’s Excelsior Scholarship and Enhanced Tuition Awards have many limitations, Adelphi’s Enhanced Assistance Grant is very flexible. It is for both in-state and out-of-state students, with no residency requirements after graduation.

  • The $3,000 grant is available to assist eligible full-time undergraduate students, both new and continuing, by supplementing our already generous scholarship and grant awards. It is renewable each year as long as eligibility criteria continue to be met.
  • Students are automatically considered for the Enhanced Assistance Grant when they file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the published priority deadline using Adelphi’s federal school code 002666. No additional application is necessary.
  • Families with total family incomes between $60,000 and $125,000 will be eligible to receive this award.
  • The Adelphi Enhanced Assistance Grant is just one of many awards that are available to assist our students. Adelphi awards more than $67 million in institutional scholarships and grants each year including merit awards, talent awards, athletic awards, special subject awards, Girl Scout and Boy Scout awards and need-based grants.  Read more about our generous scholarships, and the many other types of assistance that are available.

We pride ourselves on our ability to deliver customized counseling for each family, as we recognize that no two families are the same. Affordability is top of mind for us—and we want you to know that our team is ready to guide each student through the maze of questions that often accompany financial planning and aid packages.

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 campus: Please consult with our Office of Student Financial Services about your aid eligibility since this may differ from what is available to students enrolled in programs leading to a degree or those who attend our other locations.
