FAQs

The following is a complilation of questions and information most students request or need to know. If the answer to one of your questions is not here, please give us a call at 610-861-1400.

What are blended courses?

In a blended course, the total instructional time is divided equally between the traditional classroom format and a flexibly scheduled online format (on the course schedule, blended courses have a # symbol in the notes column). The class will meet on campus one night each week for three hours on the day shown on the schedule.

What does the technology fee cover?

A student who registers through the Graduate Studies and Continuing Education program has access to the full range of information technology services offered to students at Moravian College.  This includes access to the College Intranet and campus-wide network, the ability to access the Reeves library from on- or off-campus (including online searches), a college email account, a college Blackboard account, access to the campus web (including ability to access grades), use of campus computers and printers (both black & white and color), services of Information Technology (including Help Desk with extended hours, current versions of anti-virus and anti-spyware software, and programs to remove adware and malware).  In addition, Graduate Studies and Continuing Education students have the option of registering for courses using our web-based pre-registration module.

The cost of these services is partially defrayed by an Information Technology fee that is assessed on all students, separate from the tuition charges.  For students enrolled through the Graduate Studies and Continuing Education program the fee is $45 per term per student and is independent of the number or type of courses taken.

I don’t see the course I need in the Graduate Studies and Continuing Education schedule; can I enroll in a day course?

Baccalaureate degree candidates may, with prior approval of the Graduate Studies and Continuing Education program, enroll in day division courses.  Enrollment is on a space-available basis and requires approval by the College Academic Affairs office. Graduate Studies and Continuing Education students will pay the evening tuition rate for approved courses.(Note: Post -Baccalaureate Nursing students who take a Nursing course in the day program pay the day rate for that course.  The tuition for courses offered through Moravian College's Day Division is $3,769  for a 4 credit course.)   Please talk with your advisor before enrolling in a day course.

In general, post-baccalaureate students are eligible to enroll in up to two units of day division undergraduate courses, on a space-available basis, at the evening tuition rate. ( Day program Nursing courses are day rate)  Post-baccalaureate students who have been accepted into the teacher certification program are eligible to enroll in up to four units of day division courses at the evening tuition rate.

How do I enroll in a deferred payment plan?

We offer two plans.

The Deferred Payment Plan (DPP) allows you to pay the tuition in three installments.  There is a $20 application fee for the DPP.

The Employer Reimbursement Payment Plan (ERPP) is designed for students whose employers reimburse tuition but only at the conclusion of the course when a grade has been received.  There is a $35 application fee.

If you are interested in either of these programs, please contact or stop by the Graduate Studies and Continuing Education office for an application or download the application from our website.  Be sure to return your completed application to the Graduate Studies and Continuing Education office by the tuition due date in order to avoid a late payment fee.

Can I change my schedule after I have registered?

We permit students to drop and add courses with certain restrictions.  For full term courses, you may drop a course during the first week of classes without any notation on your transcript.  If you withdraw from a course after the drop-add period, the course will appear on your transcript with a W (withdrawn) in the grade column.  A withdrawal after the drop-add period will result in a grade of F.

For courses that run for less than a full term (such as accelerated or half-unit courses), the drop-add period will end after the first class session of the course.  The last day to withdraw with a W will be the end of the fifth week of the course.

Adding courses is limited by space in the desired class.  For all these reasons, we strongly encourage you to discuss your course selection with an advisor before registering.

Will you refund my tuition if I must withdraw from a course?

We understand that circumstances can change, particularly when job and family responsibilities are involved.  Our policy is to provide a tuition refund based on the extent of the term remaining after you officially drop a course.  However, if you withdraw after 60% of the term has passed, there will be no refund.

When can I register?

Registration for Fall courses opens beginning of April and continues until the first day of class for the course in question.

How do I register?

Select the courses you would like to take, complete the registration form on the Forms and Publications Download Center, under the heading General Forms. Return the form to the Graduate Studies and Continuing Education office with a tuition deposit of $40 per course. This deposit, which will be applied to your tuition, must be paid at the time of registration. In the event that you do not take the course, the deposit will be refunded if you drop the course prior to the first class meeting.

The deposit may be paid by cash, check, or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover).  We accept registrations in person, by fax (credit card required) or by mail. The Graduate Studies and Continuing Education mailing address, phone, and fax number are given on the registration form.

If you register for a course after the first class session of that course, there will be a $50 late registration fee.

Do I need any approvals to enroll in Graduate Studies and Continuing Education courses?

That depends. A few courses have specific approval requirements.  These are noted in the course descriptions.  However, many courses (especially those numbered 200 or higher) have prerequisites. Please check the course descriptions to determine prerequisites. If you have not completed the specified prerequisite, please consult with a Graduate Studies and Continuing Education advisor before you register for the course.

How do I know if a course is right for me?

If you are enrolled in a degree or certificate program, please consult with your academic advisor before you register.  Your advisor will help with sequencing your courses and will check that you are on track with graduation requirements.

If you are not enrolled in a degree or certificate program, please talk with an advisor in the Graduate Studies and Continuing Education office about the courses you plan to take.  Call 610 861-1400 to set up an appointment.

When must I pay for my courses?

All  tuition and fees must be paid in full two weeks prior to the first day of class of the term, unless you have enrolled in a deferred payment plan.  Courses that begin later in the term must be paid in full two weeks before the start of the class.  If you pay after the due date (and have not enrolled in a deferred payment plan), you will be charged a $50 late payment fee.

You may pay for your courses at the Graduate Studies and Continuing Education office by cash, check, or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover), by mail (check), by phone (credit card), or by fax (credit card).
