Transfer Student Housing Options
On-campus housing opportunities for incoming transfer students are limited to the RLCs designated for transfers (see links below for more information). Transfer students are not guaranteed on-campus accommodations. Housing assignments for the RLCs are made using the information provided on your housing and RLC applications. Applications will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis; therefore, it is important that transfer students complete the housing application as soon as you have committed to Appalachian State University and paid your admissions deposit. All transfer students should have an off-campus back-up plan in case on-campus housing is unavailable.
There are two Residential Learning Communities that will accommodate incoming transfer students:
How Do I Know If I Am Considered A Transfer Student?
Transfer students have graduated from high school at least one year prior to beginning a program of study at Appalachian and meet the following criteria:
- Completed 30 or more semester hours of transferable coursework at another accredited college/university
- Have at least a cumulative 2.0 GPA on their college work (as computed by Appalachian)
New freshmen are students who have graduated from high school/early college/middle college less than one year prior to beginning a program of study at Appalachian or have completed less than 15 semester hours of work at another college/university. Students that are currently enrolled in a high school/early college/middle college program should apply as a freshman.
