Moravian College offers an International Student Merit Award based primarily on academic achievement: grades, the strength of your academic program, your TOEFL or IELTS scores, and your SAT scores if submitted.
The economics major, with tracks in theory and policy or finance, provides a good background for careers in business and government, work in business, economics, law, public administration, planning, and other professional disciplines.
First-year international students are required to submit the following:
Moravian College online application or the Common Application. (You may submit an online application free of charge)

Official Test Scores (SAT or ACT.) If English is not your native language, you must submit TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) or IELTS (International English Language Testing Scores) scores, and this is required of all freshmen applicants. Requirements may be waived for transfer students contingent on college or university transcripts. Please note that Moravian College does not offer an English as a Second Language (ESL) program.
