Register for Parent and Family Orientation

Summer and Fall 2022 Parent and Family Orientation

We are excited to welcome our newest class of Mountaineers to App!

As we all learn to manage a new normal that includes responding to the unpredictable and rapidly changing circumstances around COVID-19, we want you to know App State is focused on your student's success as they transition to campus and join the App State community.

Our summer and fall Orientation sessions will be held in person with an online session available for online students ONLY. Students and families will have an opportunity to get to know campus, understand our community expectations and connect with other students and families in small group sessions.

Here’s some important information you need to know:

  • Students must register for Student Orientation before family members are able to register for Parent & Family Orientation. Our Parent & Family Orientation system will auto-populate your registration form with the same date as your student. If family members prefer to attend Parent & Family Orientation on a date that is different from their student's orientation session, families can switch their session date within the registration form. Please note, it can take up to 1 hour after the student registers for their information to be uploaded to the Parent & Family Orientation system.
  • Each registered family will receive one meal card with a $15 credit. Please be prepared to purchase any additional meals or desired food items you may want throughout the day on campus. 
  • Registered parents and families will receive a general information email one week prior to their orientation date and an additional email with the detailed schedule and parking information the day before their Parent & Family Orientation session.

If you have questions or any concerns about your ability to join us, please contact us at or We are here to help!

We look forward to meeting you soon!
