Family Orientation Program

Congratulations on your student's acceptance to Kutztown University! It's time to prepare and register for parent/family orientation program.

Family Orientation is an optional one day program designed to assist incoming family members with academic and other transition points. Additional information is provided about university services and procedures. Advance registration is strongly advised. On-site registration is limited and may not be available.

Family Orientation occurs on the same date and time as the student orientation. The program is separate from the students program. 

REGISTRATION IS OPEN!

Review orientation dates under the program section related to you.

  • Prepare for KU

    1. Select and register for your orientation date. 

    Orientation is a requirement for all new students. We plan a full day of programming for you so be sure you have no other obligations that day. Confirm your date with your student before you select.

    2. IF the student is not transferring credit equivalent to MAT 017 (Introduction to Mathematics), or higher, they must take the Aleks Math Placement.

    Do this before attending orientation. It takes 72 hours to process the score. If you have questions about transfer credits, call the Office of the Registrar at 610-683-4485. For technical issues with the assessment, please contact Dr. Paul Ache, Chair of the Department of Mathematics, at math@kutztown.edu or 610-683-4410.

    However, if the major requires more than introductory math, the student must take the assessment. If you have any questions about your program of study and the mathematics requirement, please contact the department of the major.

    3. Did your student study a language? They should take the Modern Language Placement.

    The placement exam is only for students with previous language experience who want to continue studying that same language. Earn up to nine free credits! Click here for a password and the instructions. 

    4. Thinking about changing your major? 

    Sometimes students change their mind about their major from the time they apply until the time they enroll. If your student would like to request a change to their major, email the Office of Undergraduate Admissions  (admissions@kutztown.edu).  Please make all change of major requests prior to attending orientation. This will help to avoid unnecessary delays

    5. Students must view the pre-orientation video.

    In the student's orientation confirmation email, there is a video that students are asked to view before attending orientation.

    6. Students will have their photograph taken at orientation.

    Bring a valid form of photo I.D. such as a driver's license, school I.D. or passport.
