Q: How are scholarships awarded to students at Purchase College?


The Office of Admissions automatically considers applicants for scholarships, to programs in the Liberal Arts and Sciences, based on academic merit. Academic Merit is a combination of both high school grade point average and SAT/ACT scores for freshmen or college grade point average for transfer applicants. 



Applicants to Conservatory programs will receive scholarship notification directly from the program to which they are applying.  Conservatory faculty and Deans determine a student’s eligibility for scholarships based upon the level of artistic ability demonstrated at the audition, interview and/or portfolio review.  In accordance with NCAA Division III guidelines, athletic scholarships are not available.
