Information for Admitted Syracuse Pathway Program Students

In partnership with Le Moyne College

Syracuse University and Le Moyne College have a long history of cooperation and are pleased to offer this unique opportunity to help ensure student success at Syracuse University and beyond.

This pathway program enables select students to pursue a Syracuse University degree after attending Le Moyne College for one year. The length of collegiate study and type of degree will be the same as if the student was able to join Syracuse University this fall, but the path to Syracuse University will be more like that of a transfer student.

To accept your offer to the pathway program, you should refer to the invitation email received in response to your application, or contact

Note: Only students who are invited to the Syracuse Pathway Program may participate.


Program Details
