Continuity in the time of COVID-19

App State coronavirus information


Appalachian State is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation, which continues to evolve.

Fall semester classes began Monday, Aug. 17, with a mix of face-to-face, hybrid and online courses. Staff and faculty continue working steadily, in accordance with UNC System expectations and our educational mission, to assess and adjust every aspect of the Appalachian Experience to keep health and safety at the forefront.

The two-day Fall Break has been eliminated in order to hold our last day of classes Nov. 24. The final exam period will remain unchanged. All final exams for Fall 2020 will be held online, with the exception of courses that require clinical or lab-based assessments. December Commencement will be held on schedule – at this time we are still planning for an in-person ceremony.
