Transfer Student FAQs

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’ll 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.

Due to the disruption caused by COVID-19 to higher education, any otherwise transferable coursework completed during the Spring 2020 and/or Summer 2020 terms with a grade of Pass/Satisfactory (P/S) will be accepted for transfer credit. For majors requiring a specific grade equivalent for progression in the program, proof that a P/S grade meets the minimum requirement may be requested.

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. You attain a score in at least the 50th percentile on the multiple-choice test
  2. That the optional essay for American Literature, Analysis and Interpretation 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.

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.

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.
