New Transfer Students

Congratulations on your decision to join the land of green and gold, the home of the Le Moyne Dolphins, and the youngest (and first to go co-ed!) Jesuit college in the U.S.  As a new student to Le Moyne, we want to help you prepare for this exciting transition. 


Please follow the step-by-step instructions provided here, which will guide you through all the steps needed before your first day of classes.

Welcome to Le Moyne! We're looking forward to working with you in the coming months as you begin your journey as a Dolphin. Please complete our transfer registration form so that we can start the course registration process based on your preferences. If you have any questions/concerns along the way, we're happy to help!

Transfer Registration form can be found here.

As a new student, your connection to campus is key to a smooth transition. While you likely participated in an orientation program at your previous institution, not all colleges are the same, and there is more you will want to know about Le Moyne. At the same time, we respect that you come to us with experience.

Part 1: Connecting to Campus
Join us for an informal session offered several times over the summer, intended to take care of the “business” of becoming a Le Moyne student and to help you get your questions answered. During this event, you will learn about the differences between Le Moyne and your former institution and determine the next steps you should complete before classes start. Get your campus ID, review your course schedule, tour campus and much more. Families are welcome too!

Please RSVP for Connecting to Campus

Part 2: New Beginnings
Offered just before classes begin on August 29th, this orientation includes a variety of sessions covering topics at an in-depth level to orient you to life at Le Moyne. Some portion of the event will provide information mandated by state law for all new students, while other parts are based on questions transfer students have asked us in the past. You’ll leave New Beginnings feeling prepared for your course work, able to identify campus resources and learn of the many ways to get involved.

Please RSVP for New Beginnings


As a new transfer student, it is mandatory that you submit your health records and immunizations as soon as possible. You should add your immunizations and update your health information (including Covid vaccines and boosters) directly to the Dolphin Health Patient Portal using your Le Moyne username and password. The Le Moyne Dolphin Health portal will allow you to input all of your vaccines, titers (laboratory tests that measure the presence and amount of antibodies in blood), and other important health information including the dates given, lot numbers, and vaccine manufacturers. Additionally, you will be able to upload your health records to be verified by the health office.


Access the Dolphin Health Patient Portal here:


The Health forms are provided as a guide to what information is needed on the portal, as well as a way to submit proof of vaccinations. The documents from the health packet need to be uploaded after inputting in the portal.

If you have any questions about this, please contact the Wellness Center for Health and Counseling. You can reach them via phone (315-445-4440) or via email (

Students in Dorm

The best thing about arriving at Le Moyne is that you will be able to build the confidence to stretch yourself because you’ll find the people (students, faculty and staff included) and the environment warm and open to you. But that’s probably what you’ve already noticed about this College – now your College.

It will be natural for you to take time to become adjusted and to transition to this new way of life. Many new opportunities will be available to you. With that comes the independence to set your own schedule, live on your own, commute from home and fill your time with club meetings, athletic events, work on campus and hang out with friends.

In a sense, parents and families are also joining the Le Moyne community, and we are happy to welcome our parents to the Heights. There are a number of ways that we can work together to provide your student with the appropriate balance of challenge and support necessary to thrive at Le Moyne.
