Nassau-Adelphi Gateway

NCC-Adelphi Gateway Program

A Co-Curricular Partnership

Beginning fall 2021, students enrolled in Nassau Community College (NCC) will be able to continue earning their associate degrees while living on and being a part of campus life at Adelphi University–and they’ll have easy access to streamlined transfer pathways to complete their bachelor’s degrees.  

NCC students will have the opportunity to live on Adelphi’s campus and participate in University activities, while following streamlined transfer pathways for completing their bachelor’s degrees.


The option provides students with the best-of-both-worlds, including affordable tuition by beginning one’s studies at Nassau Community College while taking advantage of the four-year co-curricular Adelphi experience which includes:

  • The option to live and dine on Adelphi’s campus
    Please note that Adelphi Housing & Residential Education is currently running a waitlist for 2023-2024 academic year housing.
  • Participation in Adelphi clubs, recreation, and leadership development programs
  • Access to the Adelphi community and campus facilities
  • On-campus parking at no additional charge
  • Early academic advising from the Adelphi Transfer Student Success Team
  • Waived transfer application and deposit fees


There is no cost to participate in the co-curricular activities as part of this program. NCC students who choose to live on Adelphi’s campus will pay room and board fees applicable to their housing and meal plan selections. Room and meal plan options can be found on Adelphi’s housing website along with the Adelphi’s housing and meal plan costs.  


This program is open to a limited number of NCC students each year. To learn more, NCC students are encouraged to contact the Dean of Students office by email at or by phone at 516.572.7376.
