Applying for Freshman Admission

Completion of Application

Students may complete Le Moyne's paper application for freshman admission or use one of our electronic application options. Students using the paper application must also submit a $35.00 application fee.  The application fee is waived for students who apply online.

Recommendation and Official Transcript

In order for your application to be considered complete we require both an official high school transcript as well as a recommendation.  The following will satisify the requirement of a recommendation: one (1) letter of recommendation from your guidance/college counselor or three (3) letters of recommendation from clergy, coaches, employers, teachers, etc.

Applications and accompanying pieces may be submitted either electronically or by hard copy, or a combination of both.  If submitted by hard copy items must be addressed to:
Office of Admission
Le Moyne College
1419 Salt Springs Road
Syracuse, NY 13214


Le Moyne only requires these scores if you are applying to the physician assistant studies program, our dual degree nursing program, early assurance to medical or dental school and anyone applying to the Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program. Homeschooled students are also required to submit SAT or ACT results.

Secondary School Preparation

All students applying to Le Moyne for Freshman admission should follow a College Preparatory course study. For students in New York State a Regents Program is required.

*Students are encouraged to complete a four unit sequence of college preparatory mathematics courses, including, at a minimum, elementary algebra, geometry and intermediate algebra/trigonometry or their equivalents. In New York State, students should successfully complete at least the three Regents' integrated sequence courses and examinations. Students failing to achieve the minimum standard may be accepted at the discretion of the Committee on Admission but these students will be required to successfully complete a non-credit intermediate algebra course prior to any credit-bearing mathematics course or graduation. Students planning to major in biology, chemistry, mathematics or physics are required to complete four years of college preparatory mathematics prior to enrollment.

+While three units of foreign language is the standard, students are encouraged to continue with language through the senior year to best prepare for language study in college.

Students who take Advanced Placement (AP) courses, International Baccalaureate (IB) or other college-credit-bearing courses while in high school may qualify for Le Moyne College credit.
