Appalachian State University

In fall 2019, College Advising Corps launched a partnership with Appalachian State University to anchor its expansion into the western part of North Carolina. In 2020-21, College Advising Corps at Appalachian State University placed 17 recent undergraduates as advisers in 20 schools.

The Appalachian State University program is building on an extensive history of engagement in western North Carolina schools, specifically around college access. Appalachian College Advising Corps at Appalacian State University advisers work as full-time, near-peer college advisers in high schools in western North Carolina to provide the support that students need to navigate the complex processes of college admissions, secure financial aid, and enroll in schools that serve them well.
