Moravian College welcomes applications for admission from students currently attending other colleges and universities. A student may be admitted to Moravian as a transfer student at the beginning of either the fall or the spring term.

The priority deadline for the fall 2020 semester is April 1st. We will start notifying candidates regarding admissions decisions in late January.
Credit is granted for courses completed with a grade of C or better at regionally accredited institutions. The courses must be the equivalent of courses taught at Moravian or be judged by College to be consistent with Moravian’s curriculum. Moravian will accept a maximum of 80 credits which is equivalent to 20 course units.
Core-to-Core General Transfer Agreement
Students who have successfully completed either an associate of arts or associate of science degree will be considered to have completed their entire general education program (core-to-core) with the exception of our U1/U2 requirement. Transfer students must complete either U1 or U2 here at Moravian College. This core-to core agreement does not apply to students who have completed either an associate of applied arts degree or an associate of applied science degree or who do not earn an associate's degree at all.'
Moravian College has transfer partnerships and articulation agreements with Bucks County Community College, LCCC, Northampton Community College, and Raritan Valley Community College.
