Transfer Admissions

Transfer applicants are:

Students who have attended a post-secondary institution after high school graduation/GED completion who have earned 12 or more college-level credits and wish to earn a degree at Kutztown University.  If you are not seeking a degree from KU and are only interested in taking single courses, please see Other Admissions Options to see which option best suits your needs.

Learn about the Transfer Year Experience and the Transfer Community Special Interest Housing Group here!  These programs connect transfer students with mentorship, resources, and events during the first year after transferring to KU.

    Why did you choose KU?
    I went to Kutztown Area Senior High School, so I was always drawn to the beauty of the campus itself.  When my mother started working at KU, I was always on campus and I loved the sense of community and that “home” feeling it gave me. 

    What was the transfer process like when you applied?
    It was very simple!  I applied as a transfer student, and within a couple of days, I got my acceptance letter.  The only thing that I was responsible for was getting my transcripts transferred which was a very easy process as well.

    What advice would you give to future transfer students to help them feel connected to campus?
    Honestly, all I did was I reached out to jobs on campus, and it gave me a list of jobs that I could pick from to get involved with some people and friends while making money. What also helped me was getting involved with groups and clubs.  I was really into group chats from my different classes. This helped a lot because we would get together and have study groups.
