Academic Resources

General Education Program

Your student's education at Appalachian begins with the General Education Program (opens in a new tab). About one-third of the courses they will take during college years will be General Education courses from across the university. The General Education Program includes 44 semester hours of courses, plus two courses in the major program that address the General Education goals of critical and creative thinking, effective communication, making local-to-global connections, and understanding responsibilities of community membership.

Available Undergraduate Majors

Here you can find a complete list of all Undergraduate Majors (opens in a new tab) offered at our institution, as well as in-depth information on each major including department contact information, career outlook, course requirements, potential minors and opportunities for engagement outside the classroom.

Academic and Registration Calendar

Both the academic and registration calendars (opens in a new tab) can be found on the Office of the Registrar's website. The calendar notes university holidays, first and last days of classes, and finals weeks, among other events.

Office of the Registrar

The Office of the Registrar (opens in a new tab) provides academic support services including student services and academic records management, degree and diploma processing, and student information systems management. They also provide information about registration, academic records, residency status, and degrees to you and your department, while protecting your student's privacy and the integrity of their records.

Transcripts and Records

Here your student can learn how to request both official and unofficial transcripts and records (opens in a new tab) online through their AppalNet Account.

Summer Academic Courses

For students interested in staying in Boone over the summer, a variety of courses (opens in a new tab) are offered in two different sessions. This provides students with an opportunity to get ahead on academics or retake any courses they may have dropped.
