Early College Students

If you are a first-year student from a North Carolina Early College high school, you will be prompted to register for one of our Transfer & Early College Orientation 1-Day sessions.  You will be directed to specifically planned Early College sessions related to your first-year needs while getting the same level of class registration support that we provide for our new transfer students.

Early College high school students can email orientation@appstate.edu or call 828.262.2167 to request a 2-day orientation program instead.


Orientation is a required program for all new students.  

Parents register separately.
