Courses with Noncredit Options

Summer 2016 Courses | Fall 2016 Courses

A limited number of undergraduate credit courses offered by the School of Liberal Studies & Continuing Education have a noncredit option at a reduced tuition rate:

*In addition to the tuition and any listed lab fees, there is a $25 nonrefundable noncredit registration fee paid once per semester.

When this option is available, it is listed with the course description. Students who register for this option do not receive college credit or grades.

This noncredit option is limited to students who are not enrolled in a degree program at Purchase College. Because noncredit spaces are limited in these credit courses, early registration is advised. Students may not switch between the credit and noncredit sections of these courses after the add/drop period.
