Welcome to Purchase College!


Congratulations on your acceptance to SUNY Purchase College! 

We are excited that you will be joining us in the Fall!


What to Expect

Graduate Orientation is a one-day program that introduces you to campus life, resources on and off campus, academic programs, and your fellow classmates.  Most importantly, Graduate Orientation is your opportunity to get acquainted with your faculty and academic program!.



Graduate Orientation is a one-day event that occurs immediately before classes begin.  Therefore, if you are living on campus you will move into your on-campus residence on that day.  Otherwise, we ask that students commute to Orientation.



Lunch and dinner are provided on day 1 of Orientation.  On day 2, breakfast is provided.  If you have special dietary needs, please contact us to make special arrangements.
