Register for Parent and Family Orientation

Fall 2021 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 success as you transition to campus and join the App State community.

Our spring and summer Orientation sessions will be held virtually, online. Students will still have an opportunity to get to know campus, understand our community expectations and connect with other students in small group sessions.

Here’s some important information you need to know:

  • Students must register for Student Orientation first, before parents are able to register for parent orientation. Our Parent Orientation system will auto-populate your registration form with the same date as your student. If you prefer to attend Parent Orientation on a date that is different from your student's orientation session, families can switch your session date within the registration form. Please note, it can take up to 1 hour after your student registers for their information to be uploaded to the Parent Orientation system.
  • You will need internet access & a computer or mobile device on your Orientation date to access the Zoom sessions and view the virtual content.
  • Students will receive an itinerary with appropriate links via their appstate.edu email a few days prior to their scheduled Orientation date.
  • Registered parents and families will receive a general information email one week prior to their orientation date, and will receive an additional email with the detailed schedule and secure zoom session links the day before their Parent Orientation session.

If you have questions or any concerns about your ability to join us virtually, please contact us at orientation@appstate.edu or parents@appstate.edu. We are here to help!

We look forward to meeting you soon!
