    Background Check

    Please be advised that you will be required to undergo a background check at a point in the program. Applicants who answer "no" to questions relating to criminal background on their CASPA application and who are found to have a positive background check may be dismissed from the program on the basis of misrepresentation. Applicants who have been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor may be denied certification or licensure as a health care professional. Information regarding eligibility may be obtained from appropriate credentialing boards. In addition, various clinical rotation sites may not permit participation in the clinical experience. This should be considered prior to making your deposit.

    Planning Ahead

    The following includes important information and resources for a smooth and successful transition as a Le Moyne College graduate student in the OT program.

    • Housing Options 
      Students who enroll in our program further immerse themselves by living in the downtown area with a consistent offering of culture, while others choose the quiet and convenience of the suburbs. One great resource shared with us by previous students is the Downtown Committee of Syracuse website. For those who may be looking to offset their housing expenses, we encourage you to see where your fellow classmates are going to be living so you can find roommates!
    • Communicate with Classmates
      We imagine you are anxious to connect with the other members of your cohort who will be alongside you as you experience the journey toward becoming an occupational therapist! Students in your cohort will come from all over the United States and possibly from other countries each bringing their own unique personality and perspective. The relationships you develop during your time in the OT program here at Le Moyne will last far beyond these two years and well into your professional careers. We encourage you to start developing these relationships as soon as you deposit!
      In order for you to communicate with your fellow classmates who have also deposited, we will need permission from you to share your email. Please send occupationaltherapy@lemoyne.edu an email with your consent to allow us to share your email information with the class. Once we get permission, we will share with you a Google Doc (just like we did during your interview) with a list of your classmates' emails. Please note that we are still accepting students and will add new students as they deposit.
    • PA Course Schedule (available late Spring)
    • PA Program Academic Calendar (different from the general Le Moyne College academic calendar; available late Spring) 
    • Textbook List (available mid-Spring semester)
    • Dress Code for Anatomy Lab
      For the anatomy lab, you will need to wear hospital scrubs and closed-toe shoes, preferably sneakers. 
    • Orientation Schedule (available in mid-April)
