Steps to Help Your Student

We encourage YOU to encourage YOUR STUDENT by taking action in ways large and small.
  • Ask for assistance for any issues through their faculty advisor or other support services on campus.
  • Read official college notices and information frequently through their Purchase College email.
  • When in doubt, give a shout out—speak with faculty to discuss progress in class and get feedback on how to improve performance in class.
  • Track progress to degree completion using the online Degree Progress Report or DPR, found in myHeliotrope.
  • Register with the Office of Disability Resources if needed.
  • Use the all the resources available to support their success:
  • Check out campus clubs
  • Participate in the Purchase Student Government Association
