Unfortunately, no. Given that many of our programs require a medical clearance in order to participate, all forms must be received in advanced of the start of the program, and by the posted deadline. A student who arrives with incomplete forms may not be able to participate in the program.
Living on Campus
All participants will live on our exquisite suburban campus in Garden City, New York. All Pre-College students reside in NEW HALL A, Adelphi’s newest residential building. Meals are served a la carte at our fantastic University Center Dining Hall, which boasts a grill, pizza and sandwich station, a full salad bar, and a variety of daily offerings.
Yes! All residential students will have at least one roommate. Each dorm suite has a private bathroom.
All students will meet their roommate on opening day. Roommate assignments will not be distributed before the start of the program.
One of the joys of college life is learning to do laundry! Card-operated laundry machines can be found on each floor of the dorm.
Students are required to be in their own dorm room by 11pm each night.
Throughout the duration of the program, students will be supervised by Peer Assistants in the residence halls, as well as faculty in all academic settings. Students will have the opportunity to partake in a variety of social and recreational activities, planned by our professional staff. Our goal is to ensure safety and a positive experience that is both fun and academic in nature.
In the past, students have toured NYC and seen Broadway shows and visited Bodies: The Exhibit. Students have also taken trips to LiveNation in Manhattan, Lake Compounce Amusement Park in Bristol, CT, Eisenhower Park, and more!
Material will be taught at the college level, providing challenging, insightful discussions through each course, as well as a glimpse of college-level work for each participant. Faculty members will be available to assist in maximizing the academic experience for each topic.
Classes run from 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. each day, with an hour set aside for lunch.
All students will receive a welcome letter from their instructor in early Spring, which will indicate any first assignments or materials that should be brought to class the first day.
Getting to Campus and Getting Prepared
Adelphi University is 13 miles from John F. Kennedy International Airport. For students who plan to fly into the New York City area, Adelphi will provide a shuttle service to and from John F. Kennedy International Airport.
The shuttle will leave the airport on Sunday, July 19 at 1:30 p.m. The shuttle will bring students back to the airport by 2:00 p..m on Saturday, August 1. To allocate enough time to go through security and get to your terminal, we recommend you book returning flights for no earlier than 5:30pm on Saturday, August 1.
If you are arriving into other locations around the area, you may take public transportation to John F. Kennedy International Airport and then take the shuttle to Adelphi.
Any student wishing to take the Adelphi Shuttle must register in advance by contacting Kate Matzkin at 516.877.3410. The deadline to register for the shuttle is July 1.
All students will be sent specific packing lists for their particular class before the start of the program. However, all students should plan on bringing casualwear suitable for high school, as well as one “business casual” outfit.
Policies and Procedures
In an effort to provide the best possible campus experience, and to provide for the safety of all students, we ask that visitors refrain from visiting students while the program is in session.
Students are not permitted off-campus without adult supervision.
