First-Year Students

Kutztown University operates on rolling admissions. We recommend that you apply between August and December of your senior year of high school to ensure scholarship consideration. A final high school transcript is required upon graduation.


1. Complete and submit the application. If you need to update or edit information on the application, please contact the Office of Admissions.

2. Pay the non-refundable $35 application fee. KU subscribes to the College Board and NACAC fee waiver programs.

3. Send an official high school transcript to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. GED results must be sent directly from the Department of Education.

4. You have the option to submit SAT or ACT scores.  KU is test-optional for students applying for Spring 2023, and Fall 2023.  We will accept test scores printed on the official high school transcript.  Please check with your high school to determine whether your scores will appear on your transcript.
