Policies on Immigration, DACA and International Student Protections

The following Adelphi policies are already in place to protect the privacy and safety of our students.

Adelphi does not currently ask in-depth questions on immigration status in our admissions applications. Thus, Adelphi does not have any records that would identify students as undocumented unless a particular student has self-disclosed information in an essay or supporting material. Adelphi does not actively track any of this self-identifying information.
The University does not voluntarily report or share information about undocumented immigrants to any governmental agency or authority and cannot do so without a subpoena or court order.
We welcome all academically qualified students who wish to attend Adelphi University.
All academically qualified students receive consideration for merit scholarships regardless of immigration status.
Regardless of a parent’s citizenship status, a child who is a U.S. citizen is eligible to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). All need-based financial aid will be dependent on the information contained in the FAFSA form. Merit aid is considered separately from need-based aid.
Students can register for classes for three years following a leave of absence. After three years, students must complete a simple form to ensure their course of study is still on track with curriculum guidelines.
All students have access to their education records, consistent with FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act).
