Welcome Parents and Families of New Incoming Students!

Parent Orientation:

Your student will take part in an orientation session, learn more about life at Appalachian, and meet with an advisor to map out his or her academic program for the fall semester and beyond.

At the same time, you're invited to join your student on campus for a separate Parent Orientation program. You’ll have the opportunity to meet faculty members and administrators, explore Appalachian, and attend sessions covering topics from residence halls to academics to campus life.

When registering, your student must register for Student Orientation first and then parents are able to register for Parent Orientation separately. Your Parent Orientation registration will automatically populate with the same session dates as your student's Orientation session.
