Your Next Steps
Yes, You Can Afford a Private College
Private colleges are often more affordable than you think. Understanding our complete financial aid package is the first step in dispelling some of the myths about affording the private school of your choice.
MYTH: A private college education is expensive, and very few students can afford to attend.
TRUTH: Moravian College is committed to making our private education affordable to as many students as possible. When you factor in the amount of financial aid that our students receive and the fact that almost all of our graduates complete their degree in four years, Moravian College can be as affordable as some public institutions.
MYTH: Students from private institutions graduate with much more loan debt than those from public schools.
TRUTH: 25% of students from four-year private colleges graduate with no debt; and of those who borrow, the difference between the median debt level for graduates of public versus private institutions is less than $5,000, according to the Council of Independent Colleges.
MYTH: The college experience and benefits for students are the same at private and public institutions.
TRUTH: At Moravian College, the 12:1 student-to-faculty ratio means students get the attention and guidance they need to be successful. Those connections are further enhanced by the use of technology to create a more interactive learning environment.
MYTH: Students with a liberal arts degree are less employable.
TRUTH: 97% of Moravian College graduates are employed or in graduate school within 6 months of graduation. Our graduates earn $14,100 more annually than the national average for other schools, according to the U.S. Department of Education's College Scorecard (December 2017)
99% of our students receive some form of financial aid.
We invest over $30 million annually in merit and need-based grants and scholarships to assist our students in making a Moravian College education affordable. Even our alumni donate millions of dollars every year as a way of paying it forward for the next generation.
