Purchase College is proud to collaborate with The Guidance Center of Westchester to offer a Supported Education (SE) program for students diagnosed with psychiatric disabilities. Students must be registered with the Access and Accommodations Office for referral to the Supported Education program.
At Purchase College, the student is offered an opportunity to meet with the Supported Education Counselor to assess together what individual accommodations may be helpful or essential for their academic success.
