Upcoming Orientation Dates

AppState Orientation:

Our summer and fall 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.  We will also hold in-person small group sessions during our Welcome to App programming the week prior to the start of fall classes.  

Here’s some important information you need to know:

  • Students will need internet access & a computer or mobile device larger than a phone on their Orientation date.
  • Students will receive an itinerary with appropriate links via their appstate.edu email the day 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!
