Step 1: Register for your Orientation Session
Orientation is required for all new undergraduate students at Appalachian. After you make your advance payment, you can register for Orientation through your myApp account. Orientation registration for fall and summer 2013 admitted students will be available February 1st.
Step 2: Complete Early Registration Advising
After you register for Orientation, you will complete your Early Registration Advising course (ERA) on your myApp checklist (beginning April 15th). This online pre-orientation course is available April 15th and must be completed prior to attending your Orientation session.
Step 3: Complete online Testing
Step 4: Register for classes
After completing ERA (and passing the quiz at the end!), you will receive an email with registration information including your registration PIN and registration time. New students will not be able to register for classes until early May.
Step 5: Attend Orientation
During the required on-campus Orientation, you will have a chance to work with your academic advisor to review and, if necessary, adjust your class schedule. Don't forget to plan for your Orientation session and make sure you are prepared.
T-POPs will help prepare new Appalachian Transfer students for their upcoming summer Orientation. Upcoming T-POPs will be Friday, April 26th and Monday, April 29th. Transfer Students should Register Now! Space is limited.
Parents are invited (but not required) to attend Parent Orientation which is held at the same time as their student's orientation program. These sessions are especially designed for parents and cover topics from residence halls to academics to campus life. Registration is required.
Please also note that before attending classes, all Appalachian students must submit a Report of Medical History and Immunization Record Form as required by University Policy and North Carolina law. If you have not yet submitted this form you will have time to complete this enrollment step at Orientation.
Have Your Plans Changed?
Orientation is a required program for all new freshmen and transfer undergraduate students. This event allows new students to get a feel for campus, meet with an academic advisor and other faculty, and finalize their first semester class schedules.
