3.41 Average Rating
manageable. just try to get a teacher with a good rating on ratemyprofessors.com. trust me.
Thelma from New York, NY
Thus far, the courses have been fair. The professors tell you what to expect on your tests and it is your responsibility to fulfill. I have not been surprised on any of my exams or presentations.
Amber from Southington, CT
The school definitely challenges the students to reach their true potential.
Cassandra from Dix Hills, NY
Many scholarships are awarded to students and Adelphi does this because each scholarship has a certain GPA requirement that must be maintained. This encourages students to work to the best of their abilities to keep the scholarship and I feel that the faculty members at Adelphi always promote scholarship in the classroom.

i have not attended the school yet but i already know they are serious about my education.
carolina from clifton, nj
After my first semester, I wouldn't say any of my classes were difficult. I would say the content is challenging, but most of the professors are highly interested in their students and their class so the classes are in a way fun. The only difficult thing about them is balancing the workloads because there is a lot of work involved depending on your classes.
Lindsey from Easton, PA
The most kids there will be in a class room would be 40-50. Adelphi provides smaller classrooms so students can have a better relationship with their professors. The professors here will know all their students by their name since the average class size, 21, is very small. Students can ask questions when something troubles them. Every professor has different grading policies but most of them here are pretty fair with their grading system.
