Upcoming Orientation Dates

AppState Orientation is Moving Online for Summer 2020

Welcome to App, Mountaineers!  We are excited to welcome our newest class of Mountaineers to App!

As we all learn to manage a new normal that includes responding to the unpredictable and rapidly changing circumstances around COVID-19, we want you to know App State is focused on your success as you transition to campus and join the App State community.  Our summer Orientation sessions will be held online.  Students will still have an opportunity to get to know campus, understand our community expectations and connect with other students in small group sessions.

Here’s some important information you need to know:

  • Students and their families can keep the date for which they are currently registered.

  • Confirmed students who have not registered should choose a date and register as soon as possible.    

  • Students will need internet access & a computer or mobile device on their Orientation date.

  • Students will receive an itinerary with appropriate links via your appstate.edu email a few days prior to their scheduled Orientation date.

If you have questions or any concerns about your ability to join us virtually, please contact us at orientation@appstate.edu. We are here to help.  We look forward to meeting you soon!
