Meet Our Advisors

Our academic advisors in the School of Liberal Studies & Continuing Education are ready to meet with you and help you earn your degree! Most of our liberal studies students and alumni build a friendly academic relationship with the advisors from admission to graduation. The advisors work closely with students to ensure that all academic requirements have been completed, and inform them about Purchase College policies and procedures.

All nonmatriculated students and matriculated liberal studies students are welcome to discuss their educational plans, course selections, and programs with an academic advisor.

Want to learn more?
Let us know and an academic advisor will contact you.

Day and evening appointments are available. To schedule an appointment, call (914) 251-6500. Please schedule appointments well in advance of the beginning of the semester as demand for advising increases as the first day of class approaches.
