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 canceling our planned May 2020 Commencement exercises. 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.

MarchingOrder gives us the means to have the graduate’s name correctly pronounced while simultaneously displaying their name and degree on the video wall as they cross the stage.

How Does it Work?

Beginning in early March, if you have both applied to graduate and also wish to participate in the Commencement ceremony you will receive an email via your Adelphi Gmail account directing you to the MarchingOrder website.

There, you will be prompted to record the pronunciation of your name. All students are strongly encouraged to not only record the pronunciation of your name but also verify that all other information is accurate and spelled correctly.

Any issues should be sent to before the April 6, 2020 deadline.

Picking Up Your Card

MarchingOrder cards must be picked up before commencement. These cards cannot be emailed, faxed or sent to you by mail.

Garden City

If your program is based in Garden City, card pickup days will be held from May 12-19, 2020 in the Campbell Lounge within the Center for Recreation and Sports.

Manhattan, Hauppauge or Hudson Valley

If your program is based in Manhattan, Hauppauge or Hudson Valley, your cards will be sent directly to your center for distribution in early May. If you have any questions, please reach out to your center’s key contact or email
