     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-served basis. 

     Information regarding date selection for 2014 Freshman CONNECTIONS programs will be mailed to all new freshmen who have paid their Advanced Registration Deposit (ARD). Mailings will continue as new Advance Registration Deposits 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 (part-time students should contact the CONNECTIONS Office for further instruction). For students using public transit or traveling long distances, special arrangements can be made for arrival the night before.
