Early Decision

If you’re confident that Moravian University is where you belong and you want to wrap up your college search in the fall, then applying Early Decision is the best option for you!

At Moravian University, we begin admitting students in October and our Early Decision application deadline is November 15. Applications received during this time will have an admission decision within two weeks, meaning you’ll know if you got in to Moravian by December 1 at the latest! So you can relax and enjoy the holiday season and the rest of high school knowing that you’ve found your home for the next four years. 

What is Early Decision?

Early Decision is an application option available at Moravian University. Students apply and receive an admission decision early, and, if admitted, commit to attend Moravian by submitting their enrollment deposit and withdrawing applications to all other schools. Please note that you are not permitted to apply Early Decision to more than one school.

Benefits of Applying Early

Wondering if you should apply Early Decision instead of Regular Decision? Here are some  reasons students choose to do so: 

  • You receive full consideration for financial aid
  • You have an admission decision earlier, so you can enjoy senior year
  • Moravian is your top-choice school and you want us to know (we’re happy to hear that!) 
  • You get exclusive Moravian merch when you enroll
  • You save on application fees—it’s free to apply to Moravian
  • There’s no need to wait for SAT/ACT scores because we’re test-optional*

*Test scores required for nursing program applicants

Scholarships and Financial Aid

At the time of your decision, you will be notified if you were selected to receive a merit scholarship, ranging from $20,000-$29,000. All students are automatically considered for a scholarship upon review of their application for admission, regardless of Early or Regular Decision status. 

If you wish to be considered for need-based aid, file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid and include Moravian University’s school code (003301) when the FAFSA application becomes available on Oct. 1. For Early Decision, your FAFSA must be completed prior to Nov. 15.

You will receive an estimated financial aid package after applying Early Decision to Moravian. We begin sending these packages out in early November. While Early Decision is binding, we understand that financial considerations may affect a student’s ability to enroll.
