Many of our usual fees have been prorated to reflect services being provided. This includes the services and programming available whether on campus, commuting to campus, or fully remote.
Students will still have opportunities to participate in athletics and student activities virtually and can still receive services to support their health and wellness regardless of where they are residing this semester.
Please find below a partial list of the athletics and student activities that are available to you:
Events run by PSGA:
- Student clubs and organizations
- Student programming
- Operation of student-run services: radio station, television station, online newspaper, magazine
Athletics continues to offer intramurals, fitness and wellness programs for all students whether on campus or off, including but not limited to:
- Afro-Fusion Dance
- eSports Club
- Juggle Jam
- Physical Comedy
- Stage Combat
- Zumba and other fitness work outs
The Health, Counseling, and Wellness Centers are offering virtual appointments and virtual programming for all students. The Health fee supports these services, which are of vital importance during this time.
The Technology fee is also fully utilized as it helps fund and support the needs of students for remote learning, as well as support technology needs on campus.
Fees were lowered when possible. The Student Activity fee overseen by the Purchase Student Government Association to run student government, student clubs, and programming has been reduced to $80 for the fall, as opposed to the approved fee of $125.
The Athletic Fee, which has been reduced by 50% to $82.50 for the fall, will allow us to offer a variety of programs virtually, a selection of which was show prior.
As was the case last semester, we are mindful of the financial difficulties of our students and their families and are working hard to ensure that students are not paying for services that are not available to them.
Students who attended in spring 2020, but will not enroll in the fall 2020 semester, have a six month grace period before loans go into repayment. The six month grace period begins from your last date of attendance in the spring. If you attended in spring 2020 and finished the semester, you would be expected to start repayment of your federal student loans during November 2020.
However, students have options to repay these student loans or request deferment/ forbearance depending on your circumstance. To arrange this you will contact your Federal Loan Servicer. To identify your own Federal Loan servicer and to review the federal loans you’ve borrowed to date please do the following:
- Visit the federal student aid website and log in with your FSA ID.
- The screen that appears will display your total loan balance and grants.
- Click on the View loan servicer details text at the bottom right hand side of this box to view your federal loan servicer.
- You can also click on View Details text to review each loan you’ve borrowed to date.
The last day to drop courses without any liability is August 30 for the fall 2020 semester. Students receiving financial aid grants and loans should speak with Student Financial Services to understand how financial aid is affected. Federal financial aid guidelines require portions of grants and loans to be returned if a student withdrawals or takes a leave prior to the ninth week of the semester and could leave the student with balance due out of pocket. The full refund policy is here.
This refund policy applies to all students regardless of the reason for withdrawal (personal, medical, academic, official withdrawal). Students who, for disciplinary reasons, are dismissed (suspended or expelled) from the college or removed from campus housing, are not entitled to a refund at any time.
Yes, students who are on campus and those who are taking classes remotely will have an opportunity to work and earn college work study.
Jobs are posted by supervisors on JobScore.
We anticipate that we will release the ebill (electronic bill) by August 14. The ebill will list the charges, payments, and financial aid estimates at the time of billing for the fall 2020 semester.
Due to CDC guidelines from the state, we must reduce density on campus so only students that have required in-person classes will be allowed to live on campus in the fall.
