Every program through Distance Education at Appalachian State University has an academic coordinator who can help you select university courses, connect with resources on campus and ensure you’re on track to graduate.

In addition, Distance Education staff can advise you on everything you need to do before entering Appalachian.

Your academic coordinator can prepare you for all of your degree requirements from beginning to end, and can assist in planning your courses in an appropriate sequence.

Distance Education wants to remind you of the importance of sharing any problems or challenges that arise during degree completion so that your academic coordinator can link you to all of Appalachian’s resources. Your academic success is our primary focus.
