Adelphi Graduation Requirements

Know what steps you need to take to ensure a timely graduation.

GPA Required for Graduation

Undergraduate students who have completed the minimum number of credits required by their major for graduation and attained a cumulative GPA of 2.0 must apply for graduation. Specific requirements for each degree will be found in the University Bulletin under the appropriate school/college and department.

Go to the online graduation application or download the print application for graduation (PDF).

Degrees will not be conferred to students who have not applied for graduation.

Determination of Graduation Requirements

Normally, matriculated students follow the graduation requirements established in the Bulletin under which they are admitted to the University; however, students who interrupt enrollment for two or more consecutive semesters (fall and spring) are governed by the Bulletin in effect when they are readmitted. Requests for exceptions are reviewed by the appropriate academic dean. 

Residence Requirements

A student must complete the final 30 credits toward a degree at Adelphi in order to be eligible for the degree. 

Undergraduate students who transfer credits in excess of 64 from two-year colleges may apply only 64 of those credits toward a baccalaureate degree to be awarded by Adelphi University. (See statement regarding graded credits in Latin Honors.)’
