International Students

Le Moyne College’s international students are an integral addition to the campus as expressed in the OneLeMoyne vision. It is the diversity of thoughts, ideals and experiences our students bring to campus that makes Le Moyne such a wonderful place to grow and learn.

Small class sizes, a wide array of academic offerings taught by world-class faculty, a friendly campus atmosphere, as well as the proximity to places such as New York City, Boston and Washington, D.C., are only a few reasons why Le Moyne College is such a great place for our international students to live and study. There are several clubs and organizations which span volunteering with Habitat for Humanity to playing an intramural sport, or acting in a play to writing for the literary magazine. Le Moyne provides international students several avenues to become integrated in campus life while sharing their rich cultural backgrounds with the community.

Each semester, the College’s Office of Global Education holds a special orientation for new students coming to Le Moyne on a student visa. The office also works very closely with the College’s International Student Club, which frequently arranges events such as movie nights, trips to go sledding and dinners. The club also coordinates a large trip each spring to a major American city, such as Washington, D.C., Philadelphia or Boston.

 

How to Apply - Freshman Application Process

Freshman Applicants

All students who are not citizens of the United States or permanent residents (possess a PRA number) are considered to be international students and should follow the steps detailed below.

1.      Complete either the Common Application or the Le Moyne Application. If using the Common Application, please make sure you complete the Le Moyne Supplement.

2.      All international students who require a visa to be issued for them to attend Le Moyne must submit their Certificate of Finance (PDF) to Le Moyne College. If the Certificate of Finance is not received with the application packet, the application will be deemed incomplete and the application will not be processed.

3.      Submit your test results for either the TOEFL, IELTS, SAT or ACT:

a.       TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language). A score of at least 550 (paper-based), 213 (computer-based) or 79-80 (internet-based) is required. TOEFL is required for all applicants for whom English is not a native language unless they meet the minimum conditions set for the SAT and ACT stated below.

b.      SAT (Scholastic Assessment Test). A score of 500 or better on the Critical Reading section of the SAT exempts applicants from the TOEFL test requirement.

4.      All transcripts should be sent to World Education Services (WES) www.wes.org for evaluation and submission to Le Moyne. Any application with a transcript that is not submitted to Le Moyne via WES will be considered incomplete.

Freshman applicants (that is, a student with no previous college/university credits), should submit a document-by-document report of secondary school transcript.
