New Transfer Students

Congratulations on your decision to join the land of green and gold, the home of the Le Moyne Dolphins, and the youngest (and first to go co-ed!) Jesuit college in the U.S.  As a new student to Le Moyne, we want to help you prepare for this exciting transition. 


Please follow the step-by-step instructions provided here, which will guide you through all the steps needed before your first day of classes.

Complete Your New Student Checklist


Part 1: Connecting to Campus
We are excited that you chose to complete your degree with us!

Connecting to Campus is the first part of TRANSFERmation, your Le Moyne College orientation program. As a new student here, we want to prepare you for all of the experiences that await. We also want to give you an opportunity to meet your classmates and get all of your questions answered. These sessions are designed to give you an idea of what your Le Moyne experience will be like. We will provide an overview of the Le Moyne curriculum, campus life, and much more. Family members are welcome.

We invite you to attend ONE Connecting to Campus session this summer. They will be held on-campus in the James Commons, located on the 1st floor of Campus Center. Register for Tuesday, July 11th OR Wednesday, August 9th

Part 2: New Beginnings
As a new student at Le Moyne, we want to prepare you for all of the experiences that await you! New Beginnings is the next step of your TRANSFERmation. It is your orientation program and official welcome to campus! This student only event will be offered in-person on Saturday, August 26th from 10:00am - 2:00pm. Attendance is required.

This program gives us an opportunity to enthusiastically welcome you to The Heights, and gives you a chance to get to know your new campus.

Register for New Beginnings - Saturday, August 26th from 10am-2pm


As a new transfer student, it is mandatory that you submit your health records and immunizations as soon as possible. You should add your immunizations and update your health information directly to the Dolphin Health Patient Portal using your Le Moyne username and password. The Le Moyne Dolphin Health portal will allow you to input all of your vaccines, titers (laboratory tests that measure the presence and amount of antibodies in blood), and other important health information including the dates given, lot numbers, and vaccine manufacturers. Additionally, you will be able to upload your health records to be verified by the health office.


Access the Dolphin Health Patient Portal here:


If you have any questions about this, please contact the Wellness Center for Health and Counseling. You can reach them via phone (315-445-4440) or via email ([email protected]).

Students in Dorm

The best thing about arriving at Le Moyne is that you will be able to build the confidence to stretch yourself because you’ll find the people (students, faculty and staff included) and the environment warm and open to you. But that’s probably what you’ve already noticed about this College – now your College.

It will be natural for you to take time to become adjusted and to transition to this new way of life. Many new opportunities will be available to you. With that comes the independence to set your own schedule, live on your own, commute from home and fill your time with club meetings, athletic events, work on campus and hang out with friends.

We understand that transferring to Le Moyne is not just an adjustment for you. It’s an adjustment for your family, too. In a sense, parents and families are also joining the Le Moyne community, and we are happy to welcome our parents to the Heights. There are a number of ways that we can work together to provide your student with the appropriate balance of challenge and support necessary to thrive at Le Moyne.

Daniel Flaherty ’26 arrived on the Le Moyne campus and quickly settled into his new home in Dablon Hall, dove into his work as an information systems major, and began attending events on campus. It did not take him long to feel comfortable. Daniel decorated his room with photos of his favorite Yankees moments and found a spot he loves in the Dolphin Den. But he found that what he loves most about living on campus is how easy it is to stay connected. In addition, it has also helped him to create a schedule that works for him, which makes him more productive. He says that the greatest part of living on campus is that you can 'more easily get involved.'
