    Articulation Programs

    Articulatory Institution: SUNY Upstate Medical University

    Qualified Le Moyne students may apply to transfer into a variety of programs offered at Upstate (respiratory therapy, medical imaging (Radiography, CT and MRI, Ultrasound), 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.

    Pre-Professional/Graduate Combination Degree Programs

    The pre-professional/graduate combination degree programs result in more than one degree: an undergraduate degree from Le Moyne and a graduate degree from the affiliated institution. After completing the appropriate undergraduate course work at Le Moyne, students gain admission to the affiliated institution to fulfill professional and graduate-level requirements before receiving their degrees.

    This program allows students to obtain their undergraduate and graduate degrees in less time than normally required.
