Academic calendars are published in full by August of the preceding year to facilitate planning. Please note that details in these calendars are subject to change; updates will be published as needed.
The schedules for fall and spring registration are circulated in advance to the campus community by the Office of the Registrar.
Students are responsible for absences and any coursework missed during the add/drop period. Before adding any course, students are advised to check with the individual faculty member to ensure that they can make up any missed coursework.
Some offices may close on holidays when classes are in session.
Attendance on Religious Holidays
As provided for in New York State Education Law §224-a, no person shall be expelled from or be refused admission as a student to an institution of higher education for the reason that he or she is unable, because of his or her religious beliefs, to register or attend classes or to participate in any examination, study, or work requirements on a particular day or days.
Any student who is unable, because of his or her religious beliefs, to attend classes on a particular day or days shall be excused from any examination or any study or work requirements that he or she may have missed because of such absence.
It is the responsibility of the faculty and of the administrative officials at Purchase College to make available to each student who is absent under these conditions an equivalent opportunity to register for classes or to make up any examination, study, or work requirements that he or she may have missed because of such absence. No fees of any kind shall be charged by the college for making available to the student such equivalent opportunity.
