Graduate students who have fulfilled all of the entrance requirements and have been accepted as candidates for a master’s degree.
Students who do not meet the criteria for full matriculation, but appear to have the capability to successfully complete graduate courses. An applicant is admitted with academic conditions that must be met before his or her application and status will be reviewed again and a final admission decision will be made. Note: This is not a designation with the MBA Program or the Physician Assistant Studies Program.
Students who have not completed the application process.
Students who qualify for graduate work and complete graduate courses for personal enrichment, transfer of credits to another institution or professional certification or development, not to complete a degree.
The course load for full-time graduate students is at least nine credit hours.
A student who wishes to audit a course may do so with the approval of the course instructor. Students who audit courses generally are exempt from assignments and examinations; however, requirements vary depending on the course. Under no circumstances may a student make a course change from credit to audit after the last day to add a course as listed in the Academic Calendar section. A grade of AUD is recorded on the transcript if minimum attendance standards are met. No credit is given.
Le Moyne College requires all students to provide proof of immunization, regardless of number of credit hours. Our Immunization Report and the Meningitis Response Form must be submitted and approved before the end of the third week of class.
This policy is based on New York State Public Health Law Sections 2165 and 2167 that requires proof of specific immunizations for all students who are enrolled in 6 credit hours or more. If the required Immunization Report and the Meningitis Response Form are not received by Le Moyne College by the 3rd week of class, the student will incur a $100 non-refundable fine that will be placed on their account. Transfer students may submit a copy of physical/immunizations records from their previous college. Health profession programs have additional mandatory requirements.
New York State law requires the college to de-register all students taking 6 or more credit hours who are not in compliance with the regulation. Students will be unable to attend classes until the report is received and approved.
Lastly, students who are not in compliance will also have a “hold” placed on their account, and they will be unable to register for the upcoming semester. The original Immunization Report and the Meningitis Response Form may be returned in person or by mail. No faxed copies will be accepted. Both forms can also be found at: www.lemoyne.edu/wellness.
Students are expected to observe at all times the highest ethical standards as members of the academic community. Any form of dishonesty makes a student liable to severe sanctions, including expulsion from the College.
Faculty and staff members should report all instances of academic dishonesty to the appropriate dean, i.e., the dean who has jurisdiction over the class in question. The dean will review the evidence in consultation with the faculty or staff member to determine the appropriate sanction, which may include failure in a course. The dean may impose further sanctions, such as suspension or expulsion from the College. It is expected that the dean will make a determination within a reasonable period of time following notification of an instance of academic dishonesty. The dean will send the student a findings letter after a determination is made. Additionally, that dean should notify and consult with the dean of the student’s home school or college. A second instance of academic dishonesty may result in suspension and may be cause for expulsion. Students should note particularly the following seven specific policies:
A student who wishes to exercise the right of appeal in these matters may request the Provost to convene a review board. This request must be in writing and submitted to the Provost’s office within 5 business days of the date of the findings letter. An appeal must be based on questions of improper procedure, new evidence uncovered after the date of the findings letter, the student disputing the facts of the case, or excessively harsh sanction. A review board consists of three faculty members and one nonvoting faculty member who serves as chair. These members are appointed by the president of the Faculty Senate. At the student’s request, two nonvoting student members may be appointed by the president of the Student Senate in consultation with the chair of the Academic Affairs Committee of that body.
The student has the option of appearing before the review board to answer questions and make a summary statement. Alternatively, the student may submit a written statement to the review board. The review board may recommend one of the following: (1) uphold the finding of responsibility and the sanction as originally imposed; (2) uphold the finding of responsibility but reduce the sanction; or (3) overturn the finding of responsibility. It is expected that the board will meet to review the appeal and make its recommendation within a reasonable period of time following receipt of the appeal. The review board forwards its recommendation to the Provost who makes the final decision regarding the appeal. The Provost’s decision is final and is not subject to further review.
For cases in which a student feels he or she has been given an unjustifiably low grade, the following grievance procedure for grades has been established:
The official dates to add, drop or withdraw from courses without academic penalty are posted on the academic calendar found on the Registrar’s website and in the College catalog.
Graduate students have one week from the start of Spring or Fall semester to add a course or before the second class of J-mester, May-mester or Summer courses. Any exceptions to this policy require the permission of the appropriate graduate department chair and the instructor. Physician Assistant/FNP students do not add or drop courses.
Students who are dropping or withdrawing from a course should be aware of the schedule set for refund of tuition. Students must inform their program advisor to determine impact on progression. In addition, they must arrange an interview with the Office of Financial Aid, the Bursar, and the Registrar to discuss how a drop or withdrawal may affect academic standing and any financial assistance for which they may be eligible. If a student drops all courses for a semester, the student must notify the department chair.

All full-time graduate students are required to have medical insurance and must be enrolled in a college health insurance policy that will be billed directly to the student’s account. This fee can be waived if the student can provide evidence of other insurance. If they cannot provide evidence, they will be placed on college health insurance. The waiver process is done online and the instructions will accompany the bill. All students, regardless of class status or credit hours may purchase this insurance. Information is available at the Wellness Center for Health and Counseling.
College life can be quite stressful at times. Stress can arise about academics, relationships, family, mental health issues, and overall emotional well-being. It is a sign of courage to recognize when help is needed, and it is also the first step in solving any difficulty.
