Adelphi students talk on campus.


We focus on a select group of promising young students.

General Studies Learning Community is a one-year, intensive program for freshmen whose potential for academic achievement has been identified by the University through interviews with faculty, administrators, and counselors, but whose high school records and SAT scores may not meet Adelphi’s traditional admission requirements

Although students applying to Adelphi University may indicate their preference for admission to the General Studies Learning Community on the undergraduate application, the Office of Admissions may refer applicants whom they think would benefit from the small classes and individualized attention of the Learning Community. Submission of SAT scores is suggested.
