October 2018

Dear Colleagues,

Affordability and value are at the top of everyone's mind—and rightfully so. At Adelphi, we pride ourselves on the generous financial aid set aside for our undergraduate first-year and transfer students. Over the past three years, our financial aid has increased by more than $15 million—a commitment to helping students and families maximize their financial aid packages.

In fact, while 94.6 percent of undergraduates received some form of financial aid last year, 87.2 percent of them received scholarships and grants—money that doesn't need to be repaid!

An investment in an Adelphi education pays off. More than 94 percent of our students are employed or continuing their education within six months of graduation. Please take the time to check out a few of our recent alumni success stories .

With our nonbinding Early Action deadline approaching on December 1, students have the opportunity to be among the first considered for our generous merit scholarships and need-based grants. We can't wait to see what your students will bring to the Adelphi community!

And, hope fully , we'll have the chance to meet many of them this weekend at our first of two Fall Open Houses .

May the fall months ahead continue to be productive for you all. Stay in touch!

How Affordable Is Adelphi?
We are committed to making your student's Adelphi education as affordable as possible. Every year, Adelphi awards generous scholarships to incoming undergraduate students . Last year, we awarded more than $78.5 million in scholarships and grants to our undergraduate student body, and 87.2% of full-time undergraduates received Adelphi scholarships and grants—money that doesn't need to be repaid.
Applying for Financial Aid With the FAFSA
Students who want to be considered for financial aid should file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) annually to determine eligibility for federal, state and college-sponsored financial aid. File online as soon as possible after October 1 each year to maximize the financial aid award. Our fall priority filing date is March 1. Adelphi's federal school code is 002666 .
