Welcome to Purchase College!


Congratulations on your acceptance to SUNY Purchase College! 

We are excited that you will be joining us in the Fall!


Transfer Orientation is a one-day program that introduces you to campus life, resources on and off campus, academic programs, and your fellow classmates.  Most importantly, Transfer Orientation is an opportunity to meet with an academic advisor and register for your classes!

You will be emailed information on how to select your Transfer Orientation Day in early-May.  This email will be sent to your Purchase email account.

Only new Liberal Arts and Sciences transfers need to attend this event.  Liberal studies students, students being readmitted to the college, and second degree students do not need to attend.



Transfer Orientation is a 1-day event, therefore we do not offer on-campus accomodations.  However, if you are traveling and require accomodations please visit our online Visitor's Guide for a list of hotels.



Continental breakfast and lunch is provided during Transfer Orientation.  If you have special dietary needs, please contact us to make special arrangements.
