  • The listing of information sessions currently scheduled may be found in the Distance Education Calendar.
  • Where no Location or Start date is provided, future locations/start dates have not been set. Please check later for updates.
  • Applications should be completed and submitted by the deadline for the semester of entry. Applications may be accepted after the deadline, but this depends upon academic departmental deadlines and space availability.
  • Federal regulations will require all institutions of higher education that deliver online instruction (whether part of an online or site-based degree program) to have written authorization from the state in which each student resides. If you reside outside of North Carolina and intend to apply to one of Appalachian’s distance education programs, please send an email to stateauthorization@appstate.edu to learn more about your options.
  • Appalachian State University reserves the right to cancel the start of any Distance Education program due to the lack of sufficient, sustainable enrollment (typically 15 for Graduate programs and 18 for Undergraduate programs). In the event of a cancellation for insufficient enrollment, application fees will be refunded. Refunds will also be issued for any tuition and fees paid by applicants.  These refund policies apply ONLY to canceled programs. When program starts are delayed, students may opt for a refund or apply their application to the new semester.
