Adelphi is an ideal university for military students. Our president is a Navyveteran, and we’re a Yellow Ribbon school. Active, reserve, and veteran military students using Post-9/11 G.I. Bill benefits or any other V.A. program benefits can apply and enroll in undergraduate or graduate programs through University College. Our goal is to create a smooth and efficient application experience for you.
The admissions process for University College is the same for all students, regardless of their previous level of education or their desired program. However, there are some unique requirements, support services, and application procedures that military members may want to consider. Adelphi University also has military-specific financial aid information for your convenience.
Regardless of the program, any military students who plan on using G.I. Bill benefits should follow this general application process:
Fully complete the online University College application, noting your interest in University College. Include an essay that demonstrates your intellectual promise and your motivation to engage in college-level work. There’s no application fee for any active, reserve, or veteran military applicant.
If eligible, complete a VONAPP (online application) for V.A. benefits.
Even if you may be covered completely by V.A. education benefits, complete an online FAFSA form for federal and state financial aid.
Contact our Registrar’s Office to notify them of your active, reserve, or veteran military status and your plans, if any, to use G.I. Bill benefits.
Contact a pre-enrollment academic advisor at Adelphi who specializes in assisting active, reserve, and veteran military students. The advisor can assist you with all application and enrollment questions.
