Veteran & Military Affairs

Moravian University, a proud Yellow Ribbon Program participant, is committed to providing access and support for veteran and military-connected students. Inspired by our long and storied history of training Army and Navy cadets during the World Wars, and welcoming returning G.I.s to campus, Moravian continues to evolve with today’s changing military and veteran needs.

Moravian Veteran & Military Affairs

Veterans Benefits and Transition Act of 2018, section 3679 of title 38,
United States Code School Compliance

Moravian University will permit any covered individual to attend or participate in the course of
education during the period beginning on the date on which the individual provides
to the educational institution a certificate of eligibility for entitlement to educational assistance
under chapter 31 or 33 (a "certificate of eligibility" can also include a "Statement of Benefits"
obtained from the Department of Veterans Affairs' (VA) website e-Benefits, or a VAF 28-1905
form for chapter 31 authorization purposes) and ending on the earlier of the following dates:
1. The date on which payment from VA is made to the institution.
2. 90 days after the date the institution certified tuition and fees following the receipt of the
certificate of eligibility.

Moravian University will not impose any penalty, including the assessment of late fees, the
denial of access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities, or the requirement that a
covered individual borrows additional funds, on any covered individual because of the
individual's inability to meet his or her financial obligations to the institution due to the delayed
disbursement funding from VA under chapter 31 or 33.

Moravian University does require a covered individual complete, sign, and return the "VA
Enrollment Form" to a School Certifying Official (SCO) each semester in order to authorize the
SCO to submit the covered individual's certification. NOTE: A Covered Individual is any
individual who is entitled to educational assistance under chapter31, Vocational Rehabilitation
and Employment, or chapter 33, Post-9/11 GI Bill® benefits.

Reserve Officer Training Corps

Moravian University students are eligible to participate in ROTC programs leading to commissions in the U.S. Army after graduation. Two- and four-year programs, open to men and women, are currently offered through cross-registration at Lehigh University.

Moravian students enjoy all the benefits accorded ROTC students at the host institution. Scholarships available to qualified students include monthly subsistence allowances, full tuition, and books. All grades for ROTC courses are recorded on the Moravian transcript and are entered into the cumulative GPA. Students assume responsibility for intercampus transportation.

Further information about the ROTC program is available at Lehigh University from the professor of military science.
