UPDATING PUBLICATIONS/CORRESPONDENCE WITH LINKS TO www.kutztown.edu
If you have any publications (letters, emails, booklets, PDFs, fliers, etc.) that include links to the Kutztown University website, you will want to check and update any of those links. While we did what we could to preserve links on the new site (for instance, all short URL Redirects, see below, setup through my office remain active), some links changed with the launch of the new website.
Note: The following URL redirects are in place on our website: https://www.kutztown.edu/URLRedirects.
