Pre-Professional and Joint Degree Programs


The Office of Pre-Professional Advising and Fellowships (OPPAF) provides support and individual advising for current students and recent graduates who are seeking admission to professional school beyond Adelphi University in the areas of medicine, dentistry, optometry, physical therapy, and other health professions as well as law, environmental studies and engineering.

Students contemplating careers in healthcare and law professions can receive individualized guidance from pre-professional counselors, advising on application procedures and standardized tests, and access to catalogs and guidebooks. Early consultation is advised.

There are also Joint Degree/Early Assurance Programs that allow students to combine an undergraduate liberal arts and sciences education at Adelphi with specialized or advanced study at a partnering university. Most applicants to these programs are high school seniors, but with careful planning and advisement these programs may also be open to transfer and current Adelphi students.

Our dedicated and knowledgeable faculty advisers strive to help you:
