Fall 2018 enrollment steps
Apply for financial aid
Explore the many types of financial aid available at Appalachian. If you're interested in financial aid, submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the priority deadline and include App’s school code: 002906. If you've submitted your FAFSA and included App, you'll see a Financial Aid tab in AppalNet. Click "My Eligibility" to see any missing requirements for financial aid and click "My Award Information" to view your financial aid package when it is awarded. If you don't see a Financial Aid tab, Appalachian has not yet received your FAFSA.
Visit – or visit again!
Now that you’re admitted, you have been assigned an Appalachian email account. Appalachian uses private GMail services – learn how to login below.
The first step to accessing your Appalachian email is establishing your password. Once you do this, you can access your Appalachian email from anywhere via mail.google.com – just remember to enter @appstate.edu after your username. If you are already logged in to another Gmail account, you'll need to click "Add Account" in the top right of Gmail or "Sign in with a different username." It's important to check your @appstate.edu email for notifications from Financial Aid, Housing, Orientation and other on-campus partners. Establishing this password will also set your password for your AppalNet student portal (see step 2).
MyMountaineer applicant portal
During the application process, you have used your MyMountaineer portal to monitor your application status. Between now and when you enroll, you can continue to check your MyMountaineer portal for an updated list of all of your enrollment steps.
AppalNet student portal
In addition to checking your MyMountaineer portal, you will need to begin checking your AppalNet account – a portal that enrolled Appalachian students use to register for courses, monitor financial aid and pay tuition. You will access this account with the same login credentials as your Appalachian email account.
Build your community
Beginning to build your Appalachian community is the first step to getting plugged in at Appalachian. Incoming first-year students should join the Official Appalachian State University Class of 2022 Facebook group. Incoming transfer student should join the Appalachian State Transfers Facebook group. For up‐to‐date information and student stories from the Office of Admissions, follow our social media.
Apply for housing
Get excited about living on campus! Review housing options and apply by the deadline on your enrollment checklist. Consider locations, room styles, rates and opportunities like Residential Learning Communities as you select top choices. First-year and transfer students less than a year out of high school are required to live on campus (there are a few common exceptions). On-campus housing for transfers out of high school more than a year is granted on a space-available basis – we encourage these students to explore off-campus housing options.
Appalachian offers more than 150 undergraduate and graduate majors. With an average class size of 27 students and a student to faculty ratio of 16:1, Appalachian's small classroom environment allows students to easily interact with their professors and each other. Start exploring majors now.

Transfer students awaiting a credit evaluation and degree audit (Degree Works) will receive an email notification that their evaluation is complete within three weeks of being admitted.
