Undergraduate Transfer Programs

The undergraduate transfer programs result in one undergraduate degree: a bachelor’s degree from the affiliated institution. After completing the appropriate course work at Le Moyne, students must transfer to the affiliated institution to fulfill further program requirements before receiving their degree.

This program allows students to pursue course work at Le Moyne and then transfer to an institution to obtain a degree in a field of study not offered at Le Moyne.

Articulation Programs

Articulatory Institution: Upstate Medical University

Qualified Le Moyne students may apply to transfer into a variety of programs offered at Upstate (respiratory therapy, cardiac perfusion, medical imaging, medical imaging, medical biotechnology, medical technology, radiation therapy). Most of these Upstate programs would begin after students had completed their sophomore year at Le Moyne, would be approximately two years in length, and would lead to a Bachelor of Science degree from Upstate. For all programs, students would have to complete certain academic and non-academic prerequisites, and have achieved certain minimum grade point averages in order to be able to transfer to Upstate.

Combination Undergraduate Degree Programs

The combination degree programs result in more than one undergraduate degree: a bachelor’s degree from Le Moyne and a bachelor’s degree from the affiliated institution. After completing the appropriate course work at Le Moyne, students must transfer to the affiliated institution to fulfill further program requirements.

Students enrolled in the Syracuse University Five Year Bachelor’s/Master’s Degree in Engineering Program must choose the appropriate pre-engineering concentration within the appropriate major. Please see the Chemistry & Physics, Biology or Mathematics & Computer Science sections of this catalog for typical programs.

Students who successfully complete their Le Moyne bachelor's degree program with a concentration in pre-engineering with both an overall 3.0 G.P.A. and a 3.0 G.P.A. in their science, mathematics and engineering courses, are eligible for automatic admission into the appropriate master's degree program at Syracuse University and a 50 percent waiver on their master's degree tuition, subject to the terms of the agreement with Syracuse University. The master's degree will typically be completed in an additional three semesters after graduation from Le Moyne.

Permission to register for courses at Syracuse University required by the individual pre-engineering degree concentrations is at the discretion of the director of pre-engineering programs, and will be contingent upon satisfactory academic performance. Students must have both a 3.0 G.P.A. in all mathematics, science and engineering courses, and a 3.0 G.P.A. overall, through the end of the semester prior to the semester in which registration takes place, in order to be permitted to register for engineering courses at Syracuse University for a given term. In addition, students must successfully maintain both 3.0 averages through the end of the term prior to the term in which the course(s) at Syracuse University are to be taken in order to be permitted to maintain that registration and take the course(s). Exceptions may be granted at the discretion of the program director.
