The Student Access Office ensures equal access to all of Adelphi University’s programs, services and facilities for students with documented needs. Through assistance, advocacy and reasonable accommodations, the office provides an accessible and supportive campus environment.

We have many campus partners who provide programs, resources and services to all Adelphi students, including Bridges to Adelphi, the Center for Career Development, Distance Learning, the Learning Center, the Student Counseling Center and the Writing Center.

Our office is actively involved in the planning and preparation of Adelphi University’s Commencement exercises, as well as University events, such as lectures, cultural events and many others.

The office’s policies and procedures meet the requirements of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and prevailing university policy.
