This year has brought many changes and our auditing process is no exception. All available courses are only offered online and while we do have some in-person courses, they are highly restricted, at capacity, and not available for auditing.  Our altered registration process this semester will include a data form for our new students and a course request form that requires Purchase credentials.


For those who have not audited with us before:

You will first need to create an account. Follow the steps below in the New to auditing at Purchase? section. This can be done prior to the opening of the Course Request form

For those who have taken classes with us before:

Check your Purchase credentials to ensure that you will have access to the Course Request form. Do this by signing in to myHeliotrope. You may need to update your Purchase password by visiting
