Prospective & Admitted Undergraduate Students: Apply for Financial Aid
Contrary to what many people believe, you do not need to decide where you'll be attending college before you apply for financial aid. In fact, we strongly encourage you to apply for admission and financial aid simultaneously! It's our goal to provide you with your personalized Financial Aid Offer as close to when you receive an offer of admission as possible because we want you to have all of the information that you need to make a well-informed decision about where to invest in your future.
Need help with any of the following steps? We've got you! Please contact the Office of Financial Aid Services for personalized assistance.

Here's everything you need to know if you're a new prospective student applying for financial aid for the 2023-2024 academic year. You're just three steps away from receiving your Financial Aid Offer from Moravian University.
Step #1: Complete the FAFSA
When it comes to applying for financial aid at Moravian, all we ask for is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Yes, we make it that simple!
The FAFSA launches annually on October 1 at studentaid.gov. We strongly encourage you to complete and submit your FAFSA as soon as possible. Submitting your FAFSA early ensures that we receive the application and can review your information to prepare and provide you with a financial aid offer in a timely fashion.
Each time you submit the FAFSA, you can list up to ten (10) schools of interest. You can list the schools by school code (Moravian University's school code is 003301) or by searching the name of the school. You'll want to send your data to any school you may be interested in applying to.
Applying for admission to Moravian for the upcoming Spring 2023 semester? Submit the 2022-2023 FAFSA now! But, feel free to work ahead and complete the 2023-2024 FAFSA while you're at it; as Financial Aid Services will keep your information on file for upcoming academic year.
Applying for admission to Moravian for the 2023-2024 academic year (Fall 2023 and Spring 2024)? Only complete the 2023-2024 FAFSA at this time!
Step #2: Apply for State Grant
For applicants who reside in Pennsylvania: The Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) has a State Grant Application deadline of May 1. Be sure to submit your FAFSA before May 1 for consideration. Within one week of submitting your FAFSA, visit aessuccess.org to create your profile and verify receipt of your State Grant Application. Routinely check your AES Portal and stay on top of any additional requests from PHEAA for information required to determine if you qualify for the State Grant.
Not a resident of Pennsylvania? Inquire about any application and eligibility requirements for your state’s need-based state grant program.
Step #3: Submit Any Additional Info Requested
Financial Aid Services may need additional information from you in order to estimate or finalize your financial aid eligibility. Be sure to check your voicemails, texts, emails, and mail to see if you’ve missed a message from your financial aid advisor or admissions counselor regarding the status of your financial aid.

Receiving Your Financial Aid Award
If you’ve taken care of Steps 1-3 above, your financial aid award will be arriving soon!
Once you’re accepted to Moravian University, your financial aid advisor will prepare a personalized financial aid offer for you. This estimated “package” will include all primary financial aid resources for which you qualify, based on the information known to the Office of Financial Aid Services at that time.
Depending on eligibility and available funding, your offer may include merit scholarships, need-based grants, federal direct loans and information on work-study opportunities.
We will begin preparing and sending financial aid awards to accepted students in November, and continue to do so on a first-come, first-served basis throughout the admission cycle. Subsequent revisions to financial aid awards will be posted on your AMOS Financial Aid Portal.
