How can I stay connected to KU for the latest updates and information?
Be sure to check your email and follow us on social media! Below you will find our social media handles for each platform.
My school has moved its classes online, and/or my schedule has changed. Will my decision be impacted by this?
We understand that alternative class arrangements have been made for many students. Your decision will not change. Admitted students are encouraged to continue to work hard and maintain good academic standing. High school seniors must also meet graduation requirements and show that they have matriculated on a final high school transcript at the end of the academic year.
What is KU doing for students who are having trouble securing official application materials?
Kutztown University will allow freshmen and transfer students who are applying for the Fall 2020 semester to send unofficial transcripts for review. We must receive official transcripts prior to the start of the semester in which you plan to enroll. Please email your transcripts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I visit KU?
Our campus is currently closed to visitors, but we now offer multiple virtual visitation opportunities for prospective students. Please also view our virtual tour at the bottom of the page!
Have Kutztown University's admissions deadlines changed?
Kutztown University operates on rolling admissions. We will continue to review applications after May 1, and will not turn away admitted students who need to make arrangements to pay the Advanced Registration Deposit after June 1.
I’ve already been admitted – how can I learn more about KU to finalize my college choice?
Congratulations! We know this is a hectic time as you make your final decision on whether KU is right for you. You can access resources from our Virtual Accepted Student Reception which will be helpful for you during this time.
Has Kutztown University extended the deadline to pay the Advanced Registration Deposit?
We have made the decision to extend the deadline to pay the Advanced Registration Deposit (ARD) until June 1. You may certainly pay the ARD sooner if you know that you will be attending KU in the Fall 2020 semester.
I have been admitted. I am not able to pay the $275 Advanced Registration Deposit, but I want to commit to attending KU in Fall 2020. Can you help?
Due to COVID-19 and the unexpected financial hardship being placed on many families at this time, we have made the decision to allow all students to deposit $50 instead of the full $275 and will defer the remaining $225 to your fall bill. This means that you will still pay that $225, but it will be rolled into your total bill for the year as opposed to an up-front payment. This may be covered by any loans, grants, or scholarships you may have received.
