In order to apply for all the aid available through Le Moyne, you must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is available on the web at www.fafsa.ed.gov. For best consideration for financial aid, the FAFSA should be filed by February 15th, however we will continue to accept completed FAFSA forms until we complete enrollment of the Class of 2018. Financial aid packages will be mailed for those that have submitted their FAFSA form. Instructions on how to accept the financial aid package are included in the contents of the package. For questions regarding financial aid please contact the Office of Financial Aid at 315-445-4400.
It is important to realize that Le Moyne cannot transfer any credit for dual credit high school courses until we have received an official grade report/transcript from the sponsoring institution. Students must contact the College Board (for AP scores), the International Baccalaureate (for IB scores), or the college/university in which students completed the courses and ask that they send the reports/transcript to the Office of the Registrar at Le Moyne. This is usually done when classes have been completed in the senior year of high school, around late June. The high school Guidance Office will typically be able to provide further help. For additional questions call the Office of the Registrar at 315-445-4456.
