International Student Orientation
There are two parts to the Spring 2021 International Student Virtual Orientation:
- Part 1: The first part is a series of videos via Moodle to introduce you to Purchase College, maintaining your F-1 status and highlight the services and resources specifically for international students to support you in your transition to our community. View videos and complete the visa session quiz by Wednesday, January 27, 2021.
- Part 2: Attend the International Student Orientation Zoom Meeting on Thursday, January 28, 2021 at 11:00AM EST via Zoom. This will be an opportunity for you to ask questions about the content covered in the videos as well as meet each other.
All new F-1 international students will receive an email notification once they have been added to Moodle to access all content and the link to the Zoom meeting.
Welcome Week Activities
Purchase hosts fun events year round but we have even more programs during the first two weeks of the semester as a part of our Welcome Week schedule of events.
Access and Accommodations
The Office of Disability Resources coordinates academic adjustments and auxiliary aids and services for students with disabilities to ensure equal access to all programs, services, and activities at Purchase College.
Questions about this process? Call or email the Office of Disability Resources directly: (914) 251-6035, email@example.com.
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.
