Steps for Orientation

1. Register for Orientation.

First you must confirm your enrollment at Appalachian.  To submit your acceptance agreement and pay your $200 deposit, log in to your MyMountaineer portal. When you do that, you will officially become a Mountaineer!

Beginning February 1, 2019, you can register for Orientation on this site.   Click on the Register for Orientation icon to the left.  

Parents/families are invited (but not required) to attend a Parent/Family Orientation which is held on the same date(s) as the student Orientation program.  A separate Parent/Family Registration is required so we can plan appropriately.

2. Complete online placement testing (if needed).

Determine if you need to take the online Math or Language Placement. Make sure to
complete these prior to your Orientation session.

3. Complete Early Registration Advising (ERA).

After you register for Orientation, complete the ERA course on your myApp checklist. The course and quiz are available April 30, 2019 and must be completed prior to attending your Orientation session.

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 (personal identification number). You must begin class registration prior to attending Orientation (beginning April 30, 2019 at noon). Don’t worry, there are plenty of ways to access registration support in the ERA process. 

5. Attend Orientation.

During your required on-campus Orientation, you will have a chance to work with your academic advisor to review and, if necessary, adjust your class schedule. 

6. Attend Welcome Weekend 2019!

Our goal during these events is for you to become more comfortable at Appalachian, make new friends, have fun, and to start weaving yourself into the fabric of student life here at Appalachian. Learn more about Welcome Weekend.
