CONNECTIONS: Freshman Program
CONNECTIONS, is an orientation program designed to acquaint new students to Kutztown University. Through interactive sessions conducted by student and faculty facilitators, CONNECTIONS is a great way for new students to get a clearer picture of the various aspects of college life, not to mention a great opportunity to meet fellow KU students!
The CONNECTIONS program takes place in the form of several one-day programs held during the month of June. Accepted students who have paid their Advance Registration Deposit select the CONNECTIONS orientation date that they would like to attend via their MyKU account. (*Please note, registration for the June 2014 orientation dates does not open until March 2014). An e-mail confirmation is sent to the student's Kutztown e-mail account after the registration has been processed.
When choosing a date, please make sure you have no other obligations or conflicts that day. CONNECTIONS requires full participation and no one is granted early dismissal. Program dates are capped and are on a first-come, first-serve basis. Keep posted for more information on the June 2014 events.
Information regarding date selection for 2014 Freshman CONNECTIONS programs will be mailed to all new freshmen who have paid their Advanced Registration Deposit (ARD) on or about mid-March every year. Mailings will continue after mid-March as new ARDs are received.
CONNECTIONS is mandatory as advisement and registration for classes are held during the program. Everyone who plans to enroll full-time at Kutztown University must attend. If you do not complete the program you will be unable to register for classes.

- Receive a KU ID card
