Le Moyne College is gratified that students choose to transfer to Le Moyne because these students, after previous educational experiences elsewhere, have opted to complete their undergraduate education here. Transfer students also enrich the classroom environment because they bring broad experiences and knowledge to the classroom and to our campus community.
While new to Le Moyne, transfer students are not new to higher education, and we recognize that difference in our interaction with these (usually) upper division students. Transfer students will recognize that we offer a distinctive Jesuit education which sets us apart, providing strong learning opportunities to become the best and most proficient in their chosen field but also providing opportunities to pursue more broadly a life of meaning and contribution. Transfer students will notice these distinctions in our intimate class settings, out-of-class experiences led by faculty and others, and as they visit our administrative offices for assistance.
Because transfer students will often be at Le Moyne for a briefer time, they are strongly encouraged to develop a relationship with their faculty, advisor, and/or department chair, who may be able to offer recommendations and references as students advance to pursue additional education or employment upon graduation.

Tau Sigma (Gamma Pi Chapter).
Le Moyne College recognizes the academic achievement of the most outstanding transfer students through induction into the Gamma Pi Chapter of Tau Sigma, the national transfer student honor society. Tau Sigma is an academic honor society designed specifically to "recognize and promote the academic excellence and involvement of transfer students." Tau Sigma members are also good resources for incoming transfer students. Society members provide information to incoming transfer students at Transfer Express Registration, and they serve as mentors during both fall and spring semesters. Please contact Tau Sigma advisor Duane Melzer for more information at (315) 445-4775 or email@example.com
Registration for new transfer students: Le Moyne welcomes new transfer students to attend one of several Express Registration sessions offered prior to their first semester of classes. During Express Registration, students will meet with a faculty member within their major department to review previous college coursework and assist in registering for the first semester. Students will leave this session with their course schedule. If students are unable to attend Express Registration, they can arrange an individual meeting with an advisor in person or by phone. Questions regarding transfer credit or AP scores should be addressed to the Registrar's Office at (315) 445-4456.
