Class Planning Survey
All new first-year students will be asked to complete an online survey about their academic interests. Through the survey, they will select First-Year Writing Seminar (FYWS) courses that interest them and provide information about past writing and language study. The class planning survey also collects data on previous college-level student that may result in credit toward a Moravian degree. The best way to make sure Moravian can assess this credit is to include information on AP, IB, Dual-Enrollment, Military Service, or any other forms of possible credit. Official transcript and score reports will be needed to approve any credit from previous coursework. Academic advisors will then use this information to build initial fall schedules.
Once the class planning survey is completed, schedules will be made available during Getting Started at Moravian. If the student wishes to make changes to the class schedule, the student will work with their academic advisor throughout the summer.
Moravian 101: Navigating Academics & University Resources
Moravian 101 will launch mid-June, to complement the content being provided at Getting Started at Moravian. Incoming students can use Moravian 101 to learn more about the academic opportunities and demands of Moravian, engage with other students and their academic advisor, and become part of the Moravian community.
Moravian 101 will include information on billing and financial aid, the student and advisor relationship, major and degree planning, academic resources, and how to have a successful transition to college—including specific Moravian resources and offices that offer support. This program will be hosted in Canvas, but students can access the content at their own pace.
Center for Academic Excellence
Moravian is deeply committed to the success of each of our students, and our Center for Academic Excellence includes academic advising and support operations and military and veteran affairs. Staff will be available across the summer to answer questions, connect new students to the right people, and support a smooth landing for all members of the Class of 2027. The Center for Academic Excellence, as an academic unit, works closely with other offices for all Moravian students to support their success in classes, degree progress, degree completion, post-graduate planning, and college journey.
FERPA (The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act).
College students and their educational records—from classes and grades to bills—are protected by US Federal Law known as FERPA (The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act). Students may choose to waive these rights and give parents, family members, or funders access to information. Students: Please submit a FERPA Permissions Form on AMOS (the form is on the College Students Tab under Forms) to authorize individuals other than yourself and your FAFSA parent(s) to speak with Financial Aid Services on your behalf.
Questions about waiving FERPA or completing the form should be directed to the Registrar's Office.
Without that waiver form, only you, as the student, can speak to your advisor or a staff member about your enrollment.
