Offering a uniquely personalized approach to learning, Adelphi has focused on student success for the last 120 years. 

Adelphi University is a highly awarded, nationally ranked, powerfully connected doctoral research university—transforming students’ lives with world-class academics, expert faculty and state-of-the-art labs and facilities.

We offer exceptional liberal arts and sciences programs and professional training with particular strengths in our Core Four—Arts and Humanities, STEM and Social Sciences, the Business and Education professions and Health and Wellness. And we take a personalized approach to education, with our small classes, hands-on learning opportunities and innovative ways to support student success.

Our nearly 8,000 undergraduate and graduate students come from 43 states and 57 countries to choose from 50-plus undergraduate programs of study and 80-plus life-changing graduate programs geared for today’s job market.

Adelphi's picturesque Garden City, New York, campus is just 23 miles from New York City and its cultural and internship opportunities.

Founded in 1896, Adelphi is big enough to give you choices and small enough to feel like home. You’ll get personal attention from dedicated professors in small classes. With an increasingly diverse group of students and a 10:1 student-to-faculty ratio, we’re just the right size for you to benefit from a learning experience where everyone knows your name.

The Best of Both Worlds

Our safe, beautiful Garden City campus is a registered arboretum that's home to more than 60 species of flowers, plants and trees. You’ll also find state-of-the-art classrooms, labs and performance studios in our Adelphi Performing Arts Center.

On campus, the 1,300 resident students in our seven residence halls and our commuter students alike have much to enjoy here, from numerous lectures and music, dance and theater performances to our 23 competitive NCAA Division II sports teams.

With the Long Island Rail Road just a short walk or shuttle ride away, you can be in Manhattan or Brooklyn in 40 minutes, enjoying museums, concerts, Broadway plays and pro sports events. When you’re ready to get down to business, check out the exciting internships available across Long Island and in New York City.

Small Classes, Big Opportunities

At Adelphi, we’re all about you. With an average class size of 21 students, Adelphi offers you the personal attention and support you need to reach your highest academic potential.

You’ll be challenged and inspired by the coursework and given opportunities for hands-on research.

Depending on your choice and interests, you might find yourself at a dinosaur dig in Utah, trading at the stock exchange, brainstorming graphic design concepts or developing video gaming ideas. When it comes to personal growth and discovery, opportunities abound.

At Adelphi, the classroom is only the beginning. Our Center for Career and Professional Development will help you put your education into practice in the real world. The Center posts thousands of new job and internship opportunities annually, and brings more than 200 organizations seeking to recruit Adelphi students to campus each year. The Center also offers counseling on career development, résumé preparation and effective interviewing techniques. It will connect you to Adelphi’s powerful network of more than 100,000 alumni, too.

Whether through internships, community service or extracurricular activities, you’ll be able to build a résumé that reflects your passions and puts you on the path to career success.

International Support at Adelphi

Adelphi has a strong commitment to international education. The Office of International Student Services assists in meeting legal requirements for entry into the United States and maintaining legal status while studying here. The office provides advice on requirements of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, Social Security Administration, United States Information Agency and Internal Revenue Service. Information and advice are also offered about differences in government laws and regulations, language, customs and more.

Adelphi International

For international students, the move from high school or university in your home country to a degree program in the United States can be challenging—a new language, new ways of learning and a new home. The Undergraduate and Graduate Accelerator Programs ease this transition by combining credit-bearing courses with additional academic support, language instruction and cultural experiences—creating a learning-centered environment that promotes academic success, active involvement in campus life and community engagement.
