The Center for Continuing Education assists students over the age of 24 by assessing their academic backgrounds, assisting with educational planning, and guiding them through the appropriate admissions process. Students may pursue a bachelor's degree--either part-time or full-time, in any major--or they may pursue a certificate program.
Adult students may prefer to take courses on a non-matriculated (NM), part-time basis without making application to the college. Others who wish to apply, but do not meet the admission requirements, may be offered the option of NM status to work towards matriculation.
NM part-time students may take up to 11 credit hours per semester and are eligible to apply for matriculation/admission after completion of 9-18 credit hours.
NM students MUST apply for matriculation after 18 credit hours have been completed. In addition, they must meet these admission requirements:
- A 2.6 cumulative G.P.A. (for most programs.)
- Proficiency in English, mathematics and the intended area of study.
- One course from the core and one course from the intended major are required.
- If the intended major requires mathematics, a math course may be required.
- Three or more years of college preparatory mathematics or college-level algebra.
Students who are not accepted for admission or who do not intend to matriculate after cmpleting 18 credit hours will be prohibited from registering for additional courses unless they obtain written approval from the director of Continuing Education. Students whose previous academic record indicates that they will be unable to meet the criteria for matriculation may be prohibited from registering for classes. The Continuing Education staff assists students with the transition to Le Moyne College by providing an adult orientation program prior to each fall and spring semester.
