Freshman Orientation is a three-day program for commuters and residents to find out all that Adelphi has to offer.

Transfer Orientation gives transferring students an opportunity to meet other students and learn about Adelphi before they start classes.

International Student Orientation for F-1 and J-1 international students and scholars is mandatory. It is also an essential part of your Adelphi experience.

Parent Orientation welcomes parents to Adelphi and encourages them to help students adjust to college life.
