Applying to be a Transfer Student

A prospective transfer student is a high school graduate who has taken courses for credit at a regionally accredited college or university. Transfer admission candidates must file an application by Aug. 1 for fall semester admission and by Dec. 1 for spring semester admission. Completed applications for admission are considered on a rolling basis, so it is advantageous to apply well in advance of these dates.

Students applying for transfer admission to Le Moyne must complete one of the following applications for transfer admission.

Transfer Le Moyne Application

Please discuss your educational experiences since earning your high school diploma/GED including how a degree from Le Moyne can help you achieve your educational goals (250 word min., 700 word max.)

Official Transcripts
An official transcript must be submitted from the applicant’s high school and from each college attended. Students should have transcripts sent directly from the high school and/or college.

Official SAT or ACT scores are also optional -- these can be sent directly from the testing service or through your high school guidance office.

Applicants who have completed more than 24 college credits at the time of application are not required to submit a high school transcript.

Admission Criteria
Applications will be evaluated on the strength of the academic program in college, the grades earned, and the applicability of coursework to a Le Moyne degree. For students transferring to Le Moyne from regionally accredited institutions, and from academic programs similar to the intended major at Le Moyne, the following guidelines usually apply.

1. Students must have earned at least a 2.6 cumulative grade-point average to be considered for admission to most programs.

2. Proficiency in English, mathematics and the intended area or study must be demonstrated in the academic record.

3. In mathematics, all students must have successfully completed at least the third year of high school college-preparatory mathematics or intermediate algebra at the college level.
