Contact Your Counselor

Finding your admission counselor

We assign an admission counselor to every student, based upon either the school that you attend or where you live. Look for your counselor (below) based on the North Carolina county or the state in which your school is located. .

We would love to connect with you! You can schedule a one-on-one video chat with your counselor. This is a great opportunity to meet your counselor, learn about Appalachian and explore your opportunities as a Mountaineer. Find your counselor below and schedule your video chat today!
