CONNECTIONS: Freshman Program
What is CONNECTIONS Orientation?
CONNECTIONS Orientation is designed to help you get adjusted to college life, answer your questions and prepare for the exciting challenges that await you at Kutztown University! When you come to Orientation, you will meet other first-year students, become familiar with the KU campus; gain an understanding of academic and other student support services offered; receive your fall class schedule and learn about academic expectations.
Each year, we prepare a new student guidebook. We will review some aspects of this with you at new student orientation.
June orientation dates appear in the highlighted section below. Sign up early! Dates fill quickly! Remember to take the Math Placement and Foreign Language Placement assessments before coming to orientation.
An optional parent/family program will be held on the same date as freshmen orientation. The cost to attend the parent/family program is $10 per person if paid in advance ($15 at the door). Very limited on site registration the day of the event. Please register ahead. The fee covers the cost for lunch and materials. This fee can be paid online through the students MyKU account or by sending a check or money order made payable to: Kutztown University in c/o the CONNECTIONS Orientation Office, P.O. Box 730, Kutztown, PA 19530.
Both the first-time freshmen and parent/family orientation program will begin with check-in starting at 8:15 AM and ending at approximately 4:00 PM. Students are required to attend the entire day of orientation. Review the program agenda and the new Student Guidebook.
