Transfer Pre-Orientation Program (T-POP)

The Transfer Pre-Orientation Program (T-POP) is a day of activities designed to help newly admitted App State transfer students find the answers to their questions and prepare for their upcoming orientation session.

Participation in T-POP is entirely free!

T-POP participants gain access to course registration and advising ahead of other incoming students, giving you a head start on getting into the course sections of your choice.

T-POP participant's enrollment deposit will be rolled into your first semester tuition bill. If you paid your enrollment deposit prior to registering for T-POP, the deposit will be deducted from your first semester tuition bill.

T-POP will take place on Friday, November 17, 2023!

Please note: You must be admitted to App State to be eligible for the program. If you have not been admitted to App State yet, you should consider attending one of our Transfer Information Sessions.


T-POP will be an in-person event available on Friday, November 17. The schedule runs approximately from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Preparing for T-POP

  • Bring your questions and concerns! There will be lots of opportunities to ask your questions to staff and students.
  • Please also note that before attending classes, all App State 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 completed these online forms, please review the link and complete this enrollment step as soon as possible.
  • Submit your AppCard photo prior to T-POP to make sure that your card is ready for pickup when you arrive on campus. Follow these AppCard instructions on how to submit your photo. Make sure to use your App State email to submit your photo. The AppCard Office cannot accept photos sent from personal email accounts.
