Faculty Handbook 2016–17
draft in progress


Academic-year registration dates and deadlines are published in the academic calendar. Space permitting, students may 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.

Wait Lists and Course Overrides
Detailed user guides for faculty are available under myHeliotrope on my.purchase.edu. These include guides for using the advisee list, class list, wait list, and course overrides.

Senior Citizen Registration
SUNY policy allows New York State residents who are at least 60 years of age to register for on-campus credit courses on a space-available basis. 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.

Course Schedule
The course schedule, which includes real-time enrollment figures for each course, can be accessed under myHeliotrope on my.purchase.edu.
