We’re Ready for You 

As the rest of the world has been turned upside down from the global COVID-19 pandemic, so has higher education. The faculty and staff at Moravian College have worked tirelessly to deliver the Moravian College experience to all of our students -- both in and out of the classroom -- for the fall 2020 semester and beyond. 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, both in the traditional face-to-face and online environments. Through the generosity of alumni and other benefactors, Moravian College has been able to continue awarding financial aid to students in need and this generosity has continued at an unprecedented rate, even throughout this crisis.
