Adelphi University is a Good Choice For Veterans
Standing #214 overall on our ranking of the Best Colleges For Veterans, Adelphi University is a good choice if you are interested in a quality education coupled with factors we think are important to veterans.
Of the 5,071 undergraduate students at Adelphi University, 87 of them are Post-9/11 G.I. Bill ® recipients as reported by the VA, which we use to determine the number of veterans at the college. Note, this figure does not include any active duty military personnel that are attending this college via Tuition Assistance, so the total military population is likely larger than this.
A large number of veterans attending a college means the college and faculty are more used to supporting and accommodating the needs of veterans.
Federal Program Participation
Several federally funded groups set standards for colleges educating service members. Adelphi University participates in none of them. Involvement in these programs plays a key role in helping us determine how good an option a college is for veterans.

Credit for Other Experience
Don't accept a credit decision like it is an order from your commander that must be followed. There is usually a process at most colleges to appeal any transfer credit acceptance decision. If you can convince the school that your previous class is similar enough to a class at their school you can often get them to change their decision. Spending an hour or so doing that can save an entire semester's worth of work and money.
