Great question. New sections of courses are frequently added after other fill, so even if a course is closed another one may open up soon.
Jeshua Armas

buenas tardes todas las clases son en ingles o si hay clases en espanol
Marsha J. McCarthy
56:30
Kean adds sections as summer progresses based on student demand. My recommendation is to register for the class you need now, then check back and use the add/drop feature in case a class in a preferred time slot opens up.

what if you are late with housing application?
Alexandra Rodriguez - Residential Student Services
01:10:19
There is no deadline to apply for housing. However, I recommend applying sooner rather than later. If housing is full by the time we receive your application, we will assign you once a space becomes available. All housing assignments are emailed to your Kean email account.

01:15:16
when can resident student have a car on campus
Alexandra Rodriguez - Residential Student Services
01:15:17
Hi John, both Cougar Hall and Freshman Hall are top-rated residence halls and are very similar. The biggest difference is the size of the common area. You can take a virtual tour of both buildings at www.kean.edu/living or schedule an in-person tour by emailing me at aleferna@kean.edu. '
Alexandra Rodriguez - Residential Student Services
01:15:33
Kai, resident students can have a car on campus after their freshmen year.

Kean is excited to offer expanded housing scholarships for qualified students this year. However, the housing scholarships apply to the freshman residence hall and not Cougar Hall.
Alexandra Rodriguez - Residential Student Services
01:16:34
Hi Diane. As of now, we do not have a plan to register for a specific move in time. However, should that change, we can certainly work to accommodate you and your schedule.
