Onondaga and Le Moyne Announce 2+2

Onondaga Community College and Le Moyne College announced a “2+2" partnership agreement.  It allows students who earn their associate degree at Onondaga to transfer to Le Moyne with junior status where they can complete their baccalaureate degree.
Onondaga President Dr. Casey Crabill and Le Moyne President Dr. Fred P. Pestello formally signed the agreement at Onondaga..

Effective immediately students can register for the new 2+2 program, which will require them to complete two years of prescribed coursework at Onondaga for an associate degree, and continue on with coursework to earn a bachelor’s degree at Le Moyne in just two years.

The agreement covers 4 degree programs at Onondaga including Business Administration, Computer Science, Liberal Arts: Humanities & Social Sciences, and Liberal Arts: Mathematics & Science. A total of 34 Le Moyne degree programs are part of the agreement including Accounting, Economics, Environmental Studies, Political Science, and Biochemistry.

Students enrolled in the 2+2 program will receive academic advising from both Onondaga and Le Moyne advisors throughout the program. With today’s signing Onondaga now has 2+2 agreements with 5 colleges and universities: University at Buffalo, St. John Fisher, SUNY Alfred, and Syracuse University. Le Moyne has a similar agreement with Monroe Community College, which was announced in August 2013.

“This partnership with Onondaga Community College will benefit students and both institutions immensely,” said Le Moyne President Fred P. Pestello. “Based on students who have already transferred here after first attending OCC, our experience is that they have performed at high levels at Le Moyne. We look forward to welcoming more OCC students to our campus.”

“We are excited about our new partnership with Le Moyne College and the opportunities it presents our students. This agreement creates a wonderful opportunity for students to begin their college education here at Onondaga and seamlessly transfer. Le Moyne is a tremendous institution and we are thrilled to be working our colleagues to create pathways to success for students,” said Onondaga Community College President Casey Crabill.
