Once You’ve Been Accepted

Apply for financial aid if you haven’t already done so (scholarships, grants and loans.)

IMPORTANT: Pay Your Deposit By the Deadline in Your Acceptance Letter.  If there is no listed date within your acceptance letter, we recommend submitting your deposit before the December 15, 2019 priority deposit deadline.

Some Adelphi University graduate programs require a tuition deposit before students can register. The deposit amount will be listed in your Acceptance letter. You must submit your deposit before proceeding.

Graduate housing is available on a limited basis. In order to reserve graduate housing, you must pay your housing deposit.

Once You’ve Paid Your Deposit

Find out how to log in to the secure eCampus portal so you can access your AU Gmail, 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).

Once you’ve set up your Adelphi login, you’ll be able to register for courses online via CLASS—look for it on the Services tab in eCampus.
Before the fall semester, new adult and graduate students are invited to attend an orientation prepared for their respective school/department.


We encourage you to view the Graduate and Adult Student Handbook to learn about student services, policies and requirements.

You should also have regular discussions with your academic adviser about opportunities that may be specific to graduate students.

All students taking six or more credits 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 Please note: You will not be allowed to attend class and may be withdrawn from the University unless these forms are on file with Health Services. International and resident students must also meet insurance requirements. Dependents of insured students may also wish to purchase insurance coverage.
