Good morning everyone! If you didn't receive a text or can't access the GET app, the link related to student IDs can be found at: https://www.kean.edu/offices/student-accounting/kean-id-cards-and-meal-plans#obtain. Student Accounting's contact information is on the right on that page in case the GET app isn't working for you.

Hi, Savannah: Student IDs can be picked-up during Cougar Packet Pick-up Days on August 27, 28 or 31st. More information coming soon.
Marsha J. McCarthy
52:25
Yes, Kean's board of trustees approved that there would be no increase in tuition for the fall 2020/Spring 2021 academic year. The reduction in fees is currently only for fall 2020 semester.

I've learned that the GET app system is down this morning. We are working with the vendor so it will be back up as soon as possible.

Hi Taylor. You can access your degree audit from KeanWise. You should have received an email when your transfer credit evaluation was complete so you could see which classes were transferred and which classes you need to complete your degree at Kean. I will connect you with your academic advisor to review the courses available to you in the fall.
Jordan Cascino, Admissions Events
01:29:28
Hi everyone! FYI: students can sort classes based on instructional methods using the search function on KeanWISE. Students can add or drop a course without financial or academic penalty until the add/drop deadline on September 8. For more information about registration, visit the Registration Information page on Kean.edu.
Scott Snowden

Eliana: If your courses are designated as "Remote" they will remain remote for the entire semester. One F2F and Hybrid courses will meet in person between 9/21 and 11/25.

Jordan Cascino, Admissions Events

Hi Grace! I submitted your info from the Q&A to Malcolm. If you have any issues email me at jcascino@kean.edu or NSO@kean.edu
Jordan Cascino, Admissions Events
02:08:26
Remote: These courses are provided 100 percent remote through Blackboard. No on-site class meetings will be scheduled. Students should expect mostly synchronous instruction, meaning students will regularly log in to Blackboard to access instruction and activities happening on the scheduled course days and times. Additional activities posted to Blackboard will be used to supplement the instruction. Please note: these classes may still have a room assigned, or indicate the location is TBA, however these classes are fully remote and will not be meeting on campus.
Jordan Cascino, Admissions Events
02:09:07
Synchronous means that you have to log log in to class online at a specific time.
Jordan Cascino, Admissions Events
02:10:04
There is a difference between Remote and Online. Kean Online (ONL) courses are offered asynchronously using Blackboard and do not have specific meeting days and times.
Summer Pryor-Green
02:10:19
If classes are closed can we still register for them?
Erin Rotter
02:10:51
What if I dont receive any other syllabi? From my other professors. Do I abide to the Spring 2020 Syllabi for the classes I am taking for the fall?
Scott Snowden

Email: transfer@kean.edu if you have any questions about enrollment. If you are not registered yet, please also email transfer@kean.edu

Kean Online (ONL): These courses are designed and offered via Kean Online. They are offered asynchronously using Blackboard and do not have specific meeting days and times. Courses are constructed to allow maximum flexibility for students to be able to complete class activities across a number of days, at any time. Most ONL courses are offered over an eight-week schedule (there are exceptions). The sections designations of these courses also begin with ON (i.e. ONF1, ONH2 etc.) These courses will not have a room designation on campus.
Jordan Cascino, Admissions Events
02:19:10
In other words, "regular online"
Jordan Cascino, Admissions Events

You're welcome. It's new lingo for everyone!

Hi Josephine, we have some FAQ info on Kean Online at the link below. Take note that, while our complete course offerings will be available in various formats, only a limited number of courses are offered specfically through Kean Online. https://www.kean.edu/online/online-course-registration-and-getting-started

02:30:55
GTO - we'll have this recording available on our website at https://www.kean.edu/transfer-orientation

Positions "on-campus" (which now also means virtual student work) are available through Federal Work Study (FWS) and non-FWS.
Scott Snowden
02:32:16
Charene: I would encourage you to speak with your Financial Aid counselor to determine FWS-eligibility as soon as possible. There is a process for being hired as a student employee and you want to get started. Many students are entering campus looking for jobs and you do not want to wait.

@nadira: I was most nervous about the environment, I didn't know if the school would be too big and fast-paced compared to my community college

We're working on in-person tours....hopefully to debut some time soon! Keeo your eyes to kean.edu/visit
Jordan Cascino, Admissions Events
02:39:26
Lots of parking available over by STEM Building too. Good tip!
Daphney
02:39:40
greta tip
Erin Rotter
02:40:08
What about like 8ams? In East campus?
Scott Snowden
02:42:38
The busiest class times are usually 9:30am and 11am. There will be a lot of students entering campus and thus more students trying to park. If you have early classes (8am), you can park without challenge. You will also always be able to find spaces in many of our parking lots, but those may not be immediately next to your academic buildings. Many students try to park immediately next to their building. I would recommend parking near where your last class of the day is.

I know a bunch of other schools have like group chats for transfer students to get to know each other in whats app and regular messages so that might be nice to get to know each other better
Erin Rotter
02:48:16
Thats what im kinda nervous about, transferring from a community college to an actual university is a big difference. Meeting new people and making new friends
Nicole Nepton
02:49:35
@ Erin I’m nervous too because I’m also transferring from a community college! Which one did you go to
