Adelphi Alumni Award for Graduate Study

We value our alumni and hope that you Adelphi will be part of your life-long learning process. As a member of the alumni community, the University would like to make your decision to invest in higher education this year just a bit easier.

For further information, please contact the Adelphi University Office of Student Financial Services at 516.877.3080.

Adelphi Alumni ID Card

The Alumni ID Card, obtained through the security office, provides proof of alumni status and is required for obtaining gym and library privileges. To obtain this ID card, you must come in person to the Office of Public Safety, Levermore Hall, Lower Level, weekdays. You may also obtain this ID card at our Manhattan Center at 75 Varick Street, Second Floor. For more information, please call 516.877.3470. 

Alumni Benefit Card

There are numerous deals on both the Abenity and Adelphi benefit pages that require an Alumni ID Card. With so many of our alumni living outside the Garden City area and unable to get to campus during business hours, we believe that this card will prove to be an excellent alternative to the Alumni ID card.

You can register for your Alumni Benefit Card by signing up through Abenity today! Your card will then be mailed to you.* If you are already an Abenity member, just email to request that your Alumni Benefit Card be sent to you.

  • The Alumni Benefit Card is NOT valid at the University’s libraries or gym. We want to make your Adelphi connection as easy and enjoyable as possible, but due to security reasons, it is still very important for a photo ID to be used in these areas. Photo ID provided by the Office of Public Safety.
  • Each member has their own unique member number. This helps us to track if lost and it also provides verification for any benefit provider.
  • Already have a stuffed wallet with tons of cards? The key tag is a small reminder of your alma mater and it works the same way the card does. Just show it off and save!
  • Snap off the three coupons located at the top of the card. Keep them safe. Use them and save even more!

*It may take up to two weeks for you to receive your card after registering.
