Appalachian State University

In fall 2019, College Advising Corps launched a partnership with Appalachian State University to anchor CAC’s expansion into the western part of North Carolina.

Appalachian State CAC is building on an extensive history of engagement by the university in western North Carolina schools, specifically around college access. Appalachian State CAC 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.
