The School of Liberal Studies & Continuing Education offers affordable, noncredit courses that allow participants to explore personal interests in a noncompetitive learning environment. Take courses in woodworking, acting, comic drawing, and more. Our personal enrichment program also offers students who are not enrolled in a degree program at Purchase College the opportunity to take undergraduate credit courses on a noncredit basis. And you may also take individual courses in any of our noncredit professional certificate programs without making a commitment to the entire program.

Personal enrichment courses are open to the general public. Students may register for one or more courses as their schedules allow. NOTE: Students who register for noncredit courses do not receive college credit or grades.
