Dear KU Students,

New MyKU, the university’s new student information system, will launch Monday, Feb. 26, in conjunction with the start of academic advising for the 2024 fall semester. Please schedule time with your advisor to review your academic plan for Fall 2024 and ensure that your “Advisor Hold” is removed prior to your scheduled registration date/time.

Changes Coming to MyKU

Dear KU Campus Community,

Kutztown University is in the process of replacing its student information system (SIS), in coordination with the State System’s “OneSIS” initiative. Students, faculty and staff use student information systems for many functions on campus, including student recruitment, admissions, registration, billing, financial aid, grades and transcripts. At KU, the SIS has been known as MyKU and Peoplesoft.

Coming this spring:

  • The current MyKU system will be rebranded as MyKU Legacy and will begin to be phased out across campus over the next 12 months.
  • Kutztown University’s new SIS, running on the Banner platform, will be referred to as the New MyKU. It is expected to launch in late-February in advance of Fall 2024 course registration.

Note: existing data in your current MyKU account will be migrated into your New MyKU account.

The New MyKU and MyKU Legacy will operate simultaneously for the next 12 months as we progress through semesters and additional university processes are added to the New MyKU. Specific dates and details of when students, faculty and staff should use each system will be shared in the coming weeks.

The New MyKU will house important functions for students, faculty and staff at KU:

  • Students will access course and other academic data as well as accessing advising, course scheduling, registration, grades and other academic activities.
  • Student Accounts will track students’ bills for tuition, housing and other fees.
  • Admissions will support the matriculation of students to KU through an integration into their communication platform (Slate).
  • Financial Aid will track the financial aid packages provided to students, manage their scholarships and work-study awards and provide student financial reports to the federal government.

No action is needed at this time from students, faculty and staff. Communications will be forthcoming over the next several weeks and months.

Sincerely,

KU Office of University Relations
