Once You’ve Been Accepted

If you haven’t already done so, apply for financial aid as soon as possible after October 1, 2018. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to receive need-based grants, federal student loans and Federal Work-Study employment.
Explore on-campus housing options available in our seven residence halls.
Sign up for a campus tour or to preview a class in person.
Join our Accepted Students Facebook Group to connect with other accepted students. You can also stay up to date with all things Adelphi on social media and our mobile apps.
Accepted Student Days (for accepted first-year students only) provides an opportunity for you to visit the campus, meet other accepted students, talk with current students and professors, and speak with a representative from Student Financial Services about billing and financial aid. Look for your invitation in the mail!
IMPORTANT: Pay Your Deposit By the Deadline in Your Acceptance Letter
Before you can register for orientation or apply for housing, you must pay your tuition deposit. You’ll then receive the New Student Kit in the mail, which contains a handbook of next steps and forms.

After You’ve Paid Your Deposit

You will be sent a welcome email to the email address you used to apply with. This email contains a unique one time use URL that will allow you to create a password for your new student eCampus account.

Once you’ve created your account, log in to eCampus so you can apply for housing, access your Adelphi Gmail, course assignments, important forms and other exclusive services.

Please note: Access to eCampus is not immediate. It could take 1-5 days after you’ve deposited to gain access to the eCampus portal, depending on method of payment (e.g., payment by electronic check can take 5 business days for your payment to clear).

Information about how you can register for your Fall 2019 classes will be sent to you directly in the Spring.

Learn about First-Year Student Orientation where you’ll get to know fellow incoming Adelphi first-year students, learn about student life and feel best prepared for your journey at Adelphi!

All students are required to complete the Complete Health and Immunization Forms with their physician. Please note: You will not be allowed to attend class and may be withdrawn from the University unless these forms are on file with Health Services. Also, make sure you meet insurance requirements.
