8-Semester Graduation Plans
Below are links to the 8-semester graduation plans for each major at Purchase College. These 8-semester plans, in conjunction with your faculty advisor, will assist you with academic planning and progress leading to your graduation from Purchase College within four years.
These plans will also help you answer many major-specific questions, such as:
- When is the best time in my four years to study abroad?
- Is an internship possible during the regular academic year (Fall and Spring semesters)?Or will I have to wait until summer break to complete one?
- What will my senior year look like? How will I balance my coursework with my Senior Project?
- Will I have time and room during my 8-semesters to have a minor?
Please keep in mind that the plans provided are general guidelines. Students should work to make their own individual 8-semester roadmap to graduation with their faculty advisors. If you have any questions about a specific 8-semester graduation plan or concerns about your own academic progress, please contact your faculty advisor, the Registrar’s Office at Registrar@purchase.edu, or the Advising Center at Advising@purchase.edu.
Specific academic requirements can also be found on each program site; go to Major and Minors at a Glance for links to each site.
