FRESHMEN? TRANSFER? WHICH ONE AM I?
Most students entering college directly from High School are considered Freshmen. Students who have taken courses for credit after completion of High School are considered Transfers.
However, at Purchase College, there are some circumstances where those rules do not apply!
Dance, Film, Theatre Design/Technology, and Acting students who have taken college classes AFTER completion of High School are considered Freshmen. These programs are 4-year programs at Purchase College and thus anyone entering the program will thus start with their 1st year.
