Woo-hoo, you’re coming to Purchase. Congratulations!
We’re looking forward to getting to know you and helping you succeed over the next few years! College is a new beginning and we realize it can be a little intimidating, but through a summer-long Orientation program, we’ll provide you with many resources and services to assist as you transition to college life.
We are thrilled to welcome you to Purchase College and for you to begin your virtual summer Orientation program. Due to COVID-19, we adjusted our 2020-2021 in-person programs and are still developing the summer 2021 program. The various components of this program will be opportunities for you to:
- Meet and connect with other incoming students and begin your adjustment to campus life;
- Connect with current undergraduate students who will assist you in answering questions about Purchase College;
- Learn about our unique campus and all the resources it has to offer you
- Meet faculty and staff who will serve as resources during your time at Purchase.
Second semester new students (began at Purchase in fall 2020) are highly encouraged to participate in the the Re-Orientation Program on Tuesday, January 26. This is a full day program with various components. Students who are unable to attend the full day may attend parts of the program as links will be live the entire day.

Fall 2021 First-Year Students
Welcome! We’ll post information regarding your summer 2021 program in the upcoming months. This program includes specific Orientation sessions, an extended Orientation Phase TWO program immediately prior to the start of the fall semester and much more. Due to COVID-19, the summer 2020 program was virtual but details for summer 2021 are still being decided. All program specifics will be posted and sent to your Purchase email by May 2021.
In the Meantime…
Please visit these pages for updates to the program, alerts for new course content, and upcoming events. We encourage you to begin checking your Purchase email on a regular basis as this is where all campus and Orientation information will be sent.

Students must submit the MMR Immunization Form or comparable vaccination record from your primary care provider or high school as required by New York State prior to course registration. You will not be allowed to attend Purchase College without this information on file.
Also, students must submit the College Entrance Health History and Physical Examination form, which is a required document for all new students and must be on record with Health Services before the first day of classes. A physical examination done within the past 18 months is required for form completion by you and your health care provider.

Of course, we figured that they might!
