Students interested in Moravian College should submit an application for admission during the fall or winter of their senior year in high school, no later than March 1. A nonrefundable fee of $40 must accompany the application. (The fee is waived if the student uses the College's online application form.) Though an interview is not required, candidates should make every effort to visit the Moravian campus to discuss enrollment plans with an admissions officer. Visits, including the interview, should take place after April 1 of the student's junior year and before February 15 of the senior year.
An audition is required for admission to the music major. Students who are planning to major in music at Moravian should arrange an audition before February 15 of the senior year of high school. Arrangements for audition should be made directly with the College's Music Department by calling 610 861-1650. Prospective art majors are required to submit a portfolio of work along with the application for admission.
Application for general admission in the fall term should be submitted no later than March 1. Beginning March 15, students will be notified of the selection committee's decision. To accept an offer of admission, students must submit a nonrefundable deposit of $400 by May 1, the national candidate-reply date to which Moravian subscribes. Deposits received after May 1 cannot guarantee a place in the incoming class.
Students with strong high school records and high SAT or ACT scores are encouraged to apply under the early action plan. The completed application and all accompanying materials must be received by December 1. Notification of admission decisions will be sent on a rolling basis starting November 1. Students may apply to other institutions without restriction. Applicants not admitted under early action will be considered under the provision of regular decision and notified in mid-March. Successful early action candidates must submit a nonrefundable $400 deposit by May 1.
Students who have demonstrated superior academic achievement through the junior year and for whom Moravian is the first choice may submit an application under the early decision plan. This application must be received by February 1, and students will be notified of the College's decision between December 15 and February 15.
Students who elect admission to Moravian under this plan are obliged to enroll at Moravian and to withdraw all other college applications. Students who are not selected for admission under the early decision plan will automatically be reviewed for regular decision admission. Successful early decision candidates must confirm their decision to attend Moravian by submitting the nonrefundable deposit of $400.
Exceptionally qualified students may apply for admission to Moravian and enroll before completing traditional high school requirements under either the early action, the early decision, or the regular decision plan. Endorsement is required from parents and a guidance counselor or principal.
