Graduate Distance Education Students

Graduate Distance Education students take cohort-based, sequential courses which lead to a degree, certification, and/or teaching licensure. These students belong to a specific "cohort" in which they stay during their academic career in the program.

STEP 1: Students must Apply/Reapply for the FAFSA each year beginning on January 1 in order to receive financial aid from Appalachian State University.

STEP 2: If you plan to withdraw from a course, please review the Policy for Withdrawing (PDF, 15 KB).

STEP 3: Please check Distance Education website for further details and tuition costs.
