Undergraduate Application

Prospective First Year and Transfer students may submit either the Common Application for undergraduate admission, which is accepted by hundreds of colleges across the country, or the Le Moyne Application.


Information You Should Know

At Le Moyne, we want to know as much about you as you want to know about us. That's why we look at the entirety of an applicant's experience. In addition to how well you did in high school, we want to know how rigorous your coursework was and which classes in particular piqued your interest. What extracurricular activities were part of your routine? How were you involved in your community? They are all an important part of what makes you, well you, and that's who we want to discover.

Recommendation and Official Transcript
Professor in Lecture

In order for your application to be considered complete we require an official high school transcript. Also required is one academic recommendation, preferably from either a school counselor or teacher.

Student reading


All students applying to Le Moyne for First Year admission should follow a College Preparatory course study. For students in New York State a Regents Program is required.

Recommended Subjects        Credit Units
        English                             4
        College Prep. Math               3-4*

*Students are encouraged to complete a four unit sequence of college preparatory mathematics courses, including, at a minimum, elementary algebra, geometry and intermediate algebra/trigonometry or their equivalents. In New York State, students should successfully complete at least the three Regents' integrated sequence courses and examinations. Students failing to achieve the minimum standard may be accepted at the discretion of the Committee on Admission but these students will be required to successfully complete a non-credit intermediate algebra course prior to any credit-bearing mathematics course or graduation. Students planning to major in biology, chemistry, mathematics or physics are required to complete four years of college preparatory mathematics prior to enrollment.

+While three units of foreign language is the standard, students are encouraged to continue with language through the senior year to best prepare for language study in college.

Madden School of Business

Students who take Advanced Placement (AP) courses, International Baccalaureate (IB) or other college-credit-bearing courses while in high school may qualify for Le Moyne College credit. For more specific information regarding granting of credit consult the Le Moyne College Transfer of Credit Guidlines or call the Office of Admission.

Le Moyne Students
Le Moyne College is a test-optional school. This means that students applying to Le Moyne College may have the option of submitting their SAT and ACT test scores or withholding them for consideration as part of the admission process. 

In some instances, it may still be required or in the student's best interest to submit test scores. Test scores must be submitted in the following circumstances:

  • To be considered for top academic scholarships
  • For the following programs:
    • Physician assistant studies program
    • Occupational Therapy program
    • Dual-degree nursing program
    • Early assurance to medical or dental school programs
    • All affiliated 3+3 and affiliated 3+4 medical programs
    • Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP)
  • If you have been homeschooled
  • If you are an international student for who English is not your first language and whose educational instruction was not in English for the greater part of your educational experience
If none of the above applies and you prefer not to submit test scores, admission will be determined by other factors.

About Le Moyne's Decision to Become Test Optional

“This decision, part of a growing trend in higher education, is aligned very closely with the Jesuit mission of Le Moyne College, which has a strong history of welcoming first-generation students,” said Le Moyne President Linda LeMura. “While it’s true that standardized tests can provide one indication of the qualifications of students applying to Le Moyne, we strongly believe that by becoming test optional our applicant pool will include more students from demographic groups that have been traditionally underrepresented.”

The decision to become test optional was consideration at Le Moyne for some time. Students still have the option of submitting standardized test scores, but will not be at a disadvantage if they do not. In recent years, the College has put an increasing reliance for admission on other criteria, including high school transcripts, the rigor of completed course work, extracurricular activities, community involvement, essays and personal recommendations.

“Our goal is to attract students who are not only exceptional scholars, but will also become involved with other key elements of the Le Moyne educational experience, such as service-learning and student clubs,” said Bill Cheetham, assistant vice president for enrollment management. “By increasing our reliance on factors other than standardized tests, we will be able to conduct a more holistic review of the criteria necessary to predict student success.”
