Help Your Student Design A Productive Summer

Taking a class during one or both summer sessions can

  • offer an encouraging boost to students in getting ahead or catching up on required coursework, 
  • lighten their academic load for a fall and/or spring semester, and
  • create time for students to take elective courses to expand their marketable skills and competencies for job and graduate school applications

Encourage your student to examine the class schedule, consider options, and consult with their academic advisor.

Please note: If your student intends to apply as a non-degree student to complete courses at Appalachian State University to count for their degree requirements at their parent institution, it is critically important your student take action on two things:

  • consult with the parent institution before applying to App State, and
  • ensure credits earned from App State will count for their degree completion requirements at the parent institution
