App State has returned to pre-pandemic operations for the fall 2021 semester, with safety precautions in place.

Vaccinations are our best defense against COVID-19. All students, faculty and staff should get vaccinated against COVID-19. Learn more at the university’s COVID-19 vaccines page.

The university will continue to make data-driven decisions informed by prevailing national, state and local public health guidance, ordinances and restrictions.

Our top priority in all decisions is the health, safety and well-being of the App State community. As scientific knowledge of the coronavirus continues to evolve, the COVID-19 pandemic changes over time, and government and public health officials issue new orders and guidance, App State will update procedures and plans as needed. The university will follow all state and federal orders, directives of The University of North Carolina System, and will adhere to guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state and local public health in order to ensure the safest possible on-campus environment.
