The Office of Distance Education
Most online courses at KU use D2L, the university's learning management system. To access your online course, navigate to D2L and login using your full Kutztown University email address (@live.kutztown.edu) and password. If you don't know your password, contact the IT Help Center at 610-683-1511 to reset it. If your course does not appear in D2L, please contact your instructor.
Online Courses and Programs
We encourage you to communicate directly with the director of the program or programs you are interested in for more information. Programs require formal admission and enrollment and all applicants must meet general admission criteria as well as program-specific requirements.
D2L, Kutztown University's learning management system, is used to deliver the university's online courses, as well as to support the face-to-face classes.
D2L Faculty Support - Visit the faculty resource page for course building information and up-to-date documents and short videos for the most common tasks in D2L.
D2L Student Support - Visit the D2L Solutions Center for a student orientation and instant support.
