Fall 2019 Application

Kutztown University operates on rolling admissions, meaning we review applications throughout the year.  We recommend that you apply between August and December of your senior year of high school to ensure consideration before the class is full. A favorable admission decision is based upon your qualifications at the time of the offer and is contingent upon the maintenance of those standards through graduation from high school.  A final high school transcript that includes your graduation date is required.  

Four Steps to Completing an Application

1. Complete and submit the online admissions application. If you need to update or edit information on the application, please contact the Office of Admissions.

2. Pay the non-refundable $35 application fee. KU subscribes to the College Board and NACAC fee waiver programs.

3. Send an official high school transcript to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. GED results must be sent directly from the Department of Education.

4. Submit SAT or ACT scores. 

If you have taken an Advanced Placement test, please submit the official score report from College Board.  Questions regarding Advanced Placement tests can be directed to Kathi Malloy at or 484-646-5933.
