Prospective & Admitted Undergraduate Students: Apply for Financial Aid

Contrary to what many believe, you do not need to be committed to a college or university before applying for financial aid. In fact, we strongly encourage you to apply for financial aid and receive a financial aid offer before you commit. It’s important to determine if a school is the right “fit” for you – academically, socially, and financially. By applying for financial aid prior to making your decision, it guarantees that you are making a well-informed decision about financial fit.

Application Process

Here's everything you need to know if you're a new prospective student applying for financial aid for the 2024-2025 academic year. You're just three steps away from receiving your Financial Aid Offer from Moravian University.

Step #1: Complete your 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 is available online at 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.

Starting in the summer of 2024? You may need to complete the 2023-2024 FAFSA, also available online at if you aren't sure, check in with us and we can help. 


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 June 1. Be sure to submit your FAFSA before June 1 for consideration. Within one week of submitting your FAFSA, visit 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.
