Is the KLA Learning Community a live-in community in the residence halls?

No. Students interested in joining the KLA learning community are not required to live in a specific residence hall and are invited to participate in all learning community events.

If I’m not admitted to the Krannert Leaders Academy, am I still a Krannert student?

Yes. The Krannert Leaders Academy is a population of admitted Krannert students who meet academy requirements [link to What is KLA? page]. You do not have to be a member of the Academy to be a Krannert student.

If I do not meet the requirements for KLA as a freshman, can I apply later?
