Accreditation


Adelphi University recognizes the importance of accreditation both by professional and educational organizations. Adelphi is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (Adelphi’s Statement of Accreditation) and all of the professional schools and related programs at Adelphi are accredited by nationally recognized professional associations. External accreditation procedures require that student learning is measured, and professional schools have developed student learning outcomes that are connected to professional standards, as well as the University’s mission and strategic goals. Whenever necessary, modifications in curriculum, assessment, and program implementation have been made to ensure that the University meets the highest professional and educational standards. See Gordon F. Derner School of Psychology, Robert B. Willumstad School of Business, Ruth S. Ammon School of Education, College of Nursing and Public Health and School of Social Work for more information.
