Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.41 Average Rating
adelphi is very generous with scholarships, so i think it's a pretty great deal.
Thelma from New York, NY
With all of the services offered to me the high cost seems very small.
Christopher from Bohemia, NY
Adelphi is a private school which means it is more expensive than state schools, but they offer scholarships to most students and are generous with fiancial aid. Between financial aid and scholarships I pay less than I would for a state school.
Stefani from Ronkonkoma, NY
The campus has a great location. It is in one of the safest towns in New York. In addition, it is close enough to take a train to the city, which is always perfect for a weekend trip. The laundry here is free, which is ideal on a college student's budget.
Amber from Southington, CT
The staff at this school are very good at encouraging students to use all the available resources. Residence halls put on programs, the food employees will tell you that you have enough money left on a meal swipe to get a candy bar so you don't waste it. You have a free membership to the gym on campus. Free tutoring, access to counselors if you're having trouble in or out of school, access to a writing center, and a learning center. Not to mention all your professors are out in their field, and most of them will take you out there for a taste of it too.
Lindsey from Easton, PA
Adelphi is pretty expensive because it's a private school but they offer a great academic scholarship if you did well in high school on top of a scholarship for being a certain major. If that is still not enough, apply to private scholarships and get a campus job. When you apply for FAFSA, make sure you put down Federal Work Study. This helps you find a campus job quicker. If you become an RA on campus, rooming/dining becomes free, which is a huge chunk off your bill. If that is still not enough, then you would have to take out loans. Subsidized > Unsubsidized
