Kutztown University has announced its intent to return to a primarily face-to-face environment for the 2021 fall semester.

KU’s 2021 fall semester, at this time, will include:
• Classes begin Aug. 30.
• Course offerings will primarily be in person.
• Classrooms will closely resemble prepandemic configurations.
• Residence halls will be open for occupancy.
• Residency requirement will be in effect for freshmen and sophomores.
• Dining facilities will be open.
• Increased events and extracurricular activities, including intercollegiate athletics with fans in attendance.
• Employees will return to work on campus.
• In-person commencement will be held Dec. 18.
KU strongly encourage members of the campus community to get vaccinated before the fall semester.
The university’s Emergency Management Committee will continue to evaluate all options and review guidance from the Pennsylvania Department of Health, Department of Education and State System of Higher Education.
In accordance with this guidance, KU will make any necessary adjustments should COVID-19 circumstances change.
