Spring 2021: Looking ahead

As the world turned upside down from the global COVID-19 pandemic, the Moravian community stepped up to "Protect the Pack." The faculty and staff at Moravian College worked tirelessly to deliver the Moravian College experience to all of our students this past fall, both in and out of the classroom. Thankfully, Moravian has invested nearly $2 million dollars to improve the online education experience, and with dozens of Apple Certified Teachers, we're continuing to deliver a robust educational experience in online environments. Through the generosity of alumni and other benefactors, Moravian College continues awarding financial aid to students in need and this generosity continues at an unprecedented rate, even throughout this crisis.

Spring 2021 | COVID-19 Testing

In the spring 2021 semester Moravian is following guidance and recommendations from the Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH), in coordination with the PA Department of Education (PDE), regarding COVID-19 testing upon student’s return for the spring 2021 semester. These plans remain subject to change, so please check this page regularly. Per the PA Department of Health and PA Department of Education, Moravian College requires all residential students to be tested on campus for COVID-19 before accessing their residence halls. To read the details: President Grigsby | Message to the Moravian Community.
