Family Orientation Program

Welcome to the golden bear community!

Maybe you are about to become a KU parent for the first time, or maybe you've been one for years. No matter the stage you're in, we know that selecting a university for your child is one of the hardest things you'll do as a parent — so we're giving you everything you need to make the choice and the transition to life at Kutztown University as easy as possible.

The KU Parent/Family Orientation Program is a separate, half-day program that occurs on the same date and time as your student's orientation. We provide information on academics, student life, housing and more! Get the answers you need by participating in this free event!


Review the dates/times and options below. Confer with your student in advance to avoid any conflicts (prom, graduation, etc.) Click on your date, complete the form and check your email for a confirmation. Limited space, please register early.

Tip: Encourage your student to attend orientation as soon as possible for best course selection! Freshmen must register separately for their orientation beginning March 9th.
