At the beginning of each course, the instructor will provide a syllabus: a written description of the course, a listing of assignments, a statement of course policies regarding absences and grades, and a schedule of tests. Make sure that you receive—and save—a syllabus for each course. Many instructors also post their syllabi online.
Adelphi has established an early warning system to help identify students who may show signs of academic distress.
The Learning Center conducts tutoring sessions, workshops, and review courses designed to help you achieve your full academic potential.
Students often face many stresses and pressures that can affect their academic work and their personal relationships. The Student Counseling Center offers a variety of services to Adelphi students, including individual and group therapy, consultation and assessment, crisis intervention, and referrals to both on and off campus resources. The Center also offers confidential counseling to students concerned about drug and alcohol abuse issues.
The Center for Psychological Services offers psychotherapy and psychological testing to Adelphi students, staff, and the surrounding community. Professional and confidential services are provided without fee to member of the Adelphi Community.
Students with documented physical, learning, or psychological disabilities may request accommodations through the Student Access Office. Assistance is free of charge and all requests for accommodations are confidential.
Students who are ill can seek help from Health Services at any time. If a student needs to see a doctor Health Services can help make an appointment.
Degree Audit is an online program accessible through the eCampus Services tab. It is an academic advisement tool designed to help you understand the degree requirements for your major. It compares a student’s coursework with general education, major and minor requirements.
Academic Deans are available in each academic unit to assist students with any questions, concerns and administrative functions related to their course of study in their department.
There is also the Dean of Student Affairs who is responsible for co-curricular offices, functions, and activities that relate to student life, including athletics, commuter students affairs, dining services, disability support services, drug and alcohol counseling, health services, interfaith activities, international student services, judicial affairs, multicultural affairs, orientation, residence halls, student activities and student counseling services.
The deans rely on associate and assistant deans, directors and chairs to oversee the progress of students in their particular academic units. If you have an academic problem, wish to file a petition to obtain a waiver of an academic rule, or need help outside of your major, contact the appropriate associate dean, assistant dean, chair or director.
