The university is open, with emergency management protocols activated. Spring Break has been extended until 8am March 23. In accordance with UNC System guidance, App State will transition from in-person instruction to a system of alternative course delivery, where possible and practical, with alternative course delivery beginning March 23. Our goal is to return to in-person instruction as soon as reasonably possible. Residence halls and dining halls are open. We are actively promoting social distancing, and have encouraged students to study and take classes from home. App State's COVID-19 information website


Any discussion of refunds for housing and dining will take place once we are beyond the immediate issues we face now with mitigating spread of the coronavirus.
