Please note: Some procedures outlined on this page may change with the rollout of Banner+ and myHeliotrope on my.purchase.edu. Faculty will have access to training and guides provided by the Banner Implementation Team.
Academic-year registration dates and deadlines are published in the academic calendar. Space permitting, students can register for (add) a course through the end of the first week of classes, the add/drop period. However, students are charged a late registration fee if they have not registered for any courses during the normal registration period.
Special Codes Used During Registration
Senior Citizen Registration
Senior citizen auditors are New York State residents who are at least 60 years of age. They do not pay SUNY tuition and do not receive grades or earn course credits. They are encouraged to discuss expectations for class participation and work assignments with the instructor after senior citizen registration, which is held immediately after the end of the add/drop period on a space-available basis only.
The course schedule, which is online only, can be accessed under myHeliotrope on my.purchase.edu. The course schedule also includes real-time enrollment figures for each course.
The tally includes more detailed real-time enrollment figures, such as the number of nonmatriculated spaces available or the number of new or continuing students registered. The tally can be accessed under myHeliotrope on my.purchase.edu.
