Coronavirus update:

Due to a ban on gatherings in New York State, and the requirement of our state and county departments of health to maintain social distance and reduce population density during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are unable to hold our May 2020 Commencement exercises as planned. We are actively working on plans for alternative commencement and doctoral hooding events and celebrations. We know this is deeply disappointing to our graduates and their families, but Adelphi’s duty to adhere to official guidance and to protect our community and each other is paramount. Be assured that all students who are eligible and have completed their requirements toward graduation will still receive their degrees. We will share new celebration plans, once finalized, on this commencement webpage, our coronavirus information page, and by email to all our students.

We will be more than happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
