Accepted Students Events

Congratulations! We are thrilled to invite you to join the Purchase College community. We encourage you to explore the college and take advantage of the many Accepted Student Events we have to offer.

If you cannot make it to campus then be sure to connect with us on the Purchase Facebook and Twitter fan pages.

If you have not yet received your decision, please check out our other visit opportunities.


Accepted Student Days are filled with activities designed to give you a true sense of Purchase College. You will have a chance to participate in lively discussions with our faculty and students, discover unique majors, clubs, and opportunities for involvement, explore the campus with our students on a guided tours and find out why Purchase faculty and staff are serving students pancakes at midnight!

Please save the date for our two upcoming Accepted Student Days on March 12, and April 1, 2016. Registration is now open.

Can't attend one of these two dates? We will also offer two Accepted Student Information Sessions on April 8 and April 15, 2016. Registration is now open.



Test Drive Days offer students an opportunity to sit in on a Purchase College class and hear from our engaging and knowledgeable faculty in various disciplines who have opened their classrooms to accepted students. Courses are available on most weekdays but we encourage you to contact us as soon as you know when you are visiting so we can make sure we have a course to offer. Please understand that due to schedule constraints, there may not be a course available in your field of interest. In that case, we encourage you to consider attending a class in a subject with which you are unfamiliar. Registration for a class visit is required and must be made at least 5 days in advance.

Call the Office of Admissions at 914- 251-6300 to register for one of these classes.

*Not all Areas of Study offer this opportunity. We will do our best to accommodate all requests. Test Drive Days feature classes in the Liberal Arts and Sciences only. Visual or Performing Arts courses are not featured as part of Test Drive Days.
