    Transfer Credit

    How will my courses transfer to Le Moyne College?

    Launch Le Moyne College's Transfer Course Evaluation System!

    Note: Le Moyne’s Transfer Course Evaluation System (TES) is subject to frequent revision. Additional courses will be added to the list on a regular basis. Final determination of transfer credit equivalency is made by the College’s Registrar Office after a transfer applicant is admitted to the College. You will be required to submit official transcripts of all completed coursework before a final determination can be made on transfer credit eligibility.  Please refer to our transfer credit policy below.

    Transferring Credit into Le Moyne College

    Le Moyne makes a sincere effort to transfer credits to the student’s best educational advantage, provided that the previous coursework is applicable to the Le Moyne degree program.

    The acceptance or denial of transfer credit is not determined exclusively on the basis of the accreditation of the sending institution or the mode of delivery, but, rather, Le Moyne College will consider course equivalencies, including expected learning outcomes, with those of the receiving institution’s curricula and standards (Characteristics of Excellence, Standard 11, MSCHE). Transfer credit will only be awarded to courses from regionally accredited institutions of higher learning with coursework satisfactorily completed with a letter grade of C- or above. 

    Courses taken in technical areas, remedial courses, internships, field experiences, physical education and health courses, courses in which grades of “D” were earned and courses taken pass/fail will not transfer to Le Moyne. Courses which are more elementary than Le Moyne’s introductory level are not accepted for transfer.

    A maximum of 60 credit hours may be accepted from a regionally accredited two-year college, and a maximum of 90 credit hours may be accepted from a regionally accredited four-year college. It is, however, very unlikely that 90 credits will apply to the Le Moyne programs since half of the courses listed as “major requirements” in the Le Moyne catalog must be completed at Le Moyne. In addition, at least 6 core courses, including COR 400, must be taken at Le Moyne. One core course must also be writing instructional. Students who have completed 60 credit hours at Le Moyne are eligible for degree honors at graduation. To receive a Le Moyne degree, the last 30 credit hours must be taken at Le Moyne College.

    Matriculated students wishing to take courses elsewhere in order to transfer the credits back to Le Moyne must complete a Transfer Course Approval form. Transfer course approvals must be submitted to the Registrar's Office. Approvals may not be granted if the course is available at Le Moyne during the requested session. The approval guarantees that the credit will transfer back to Le Moyne, provided the grade earned in the course is a 'C-' or better. Students are advised to secure approval before they register for such courses. Please be aware that the credit transfers but the grade does not affect your grade point average.

    College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

    Le Moyne College grants academic credit for some subject examinations of CLEP to students who are already enrolled in the College and to applicants for admission provided that:

    1. They attain a score in at least the 50th percentile on the multiple-choice test
    2. That the optional essay for American Literature, Analysis and Intrepretation of Literature, College Composition, English Literature, and freshman English be completed. The Chair of the English department must approve the essay section of the examination in order to receive credit. Credit for WRT or ENG courses must be earned before students matriculate at Le Moyne.
    3. Please contact the Registrar's Office to see if your subject test is accepted. 

    Please note: Le Moyne College does not administer CLEP examinations.

    Please visit our Transfer Course Evaluation System (TES) for CLEP equivalencies.

    Advanced Placement (AP) Credit Policy

    Le Moyne College supports the Advanced Placement programs of the College Entrance Examination Board and acknowledges the accomplishments of those students who, through high scores on Advanced Placement (AP) examinations, have demonstrated special academic achievement in high school. At the same time, the College recognizes that only students who are judged to be adequately prepared should be admitted to courses and programs. The College will therefore award college-level credit based on the College's AP Credit Policy (see below) if a specific score is met. 

    As a liberal arts college in the Jesuit education tradition, Le Moyne affirms the importance of well-developed skills in writing and speaking. Consequently, even students with AP credits in English may still be required to take WRT 101 (Critical Writing).

    Le Moyne College's Registrar's Office must receive official AP Score Reports from the College Board in order for them to be reviewed for credit. If you have any questions regarding the submission or equivalency of AP exams scores, please contact the Registrar's Office.

    Please visit our Transfer Course Evaluation System (TES) for AP equivalencies.

    International Baccalaureate (IB) Credit Policy

    Matriculated students seeking credit for IB courses completed during high school must have official score reports sent to Le Moyne College. IB credits are reviewed on an individual basis and determined by the score received on the exam as well as the diploma earned.
