Open House

The best way to learn about Appalachian and what’s like to live – and learn – like a Mountaineer is to visit us.

Join us for an informative day designed just for high school students and prospective transfer students. Meet our faculty, tour campus, and learn more about majors and programs, scholarships, financial aid, the admissions process and what it’s like to be a member of the Appalachian community.
