Advising at Purchase CollegeProfessor Hunt has a group dicussion

The Advising Center supports and supplements Purchase College’s faculty-based advising program. The staff includes the director of the Advising Center and a full-time academic advisor, along with other support staff. Students at Purchase College are assigned to a faculty advisor upon entrance into the college. Your faculty advisor should be a faculty member in your board of study. While your faculty advisor will be your primary resource for academic advising, we at the Advising Center can also help you with academic related questions.

Our Mission

The mission of the Advising Center at Purchase College is to provide undergraduate students with strong academic support by providing our students with direction relating to degree programs, career goals, and life goals. This mission is achieved by supplying accurate and timely information on the college’s academic requirements, policies, and procedures. We are available to all Purchase students, but are especially focused on providing guidance to students who have not yet declared a major, students who are changing majors, incoming transfer students, and students returning to school after a leave of absence.
