Academic Support

How can Appalachian help me in my academics?

As part of the Appalachian mission, the Office of Distance Education is dedicated to your success and well-being. We stay in contact with departments on the main campus to increase awareness and accessibility of online resources for academic support. You can also benefit from Appalachian resources in your personal relationships, overall health and daily life. With opportunities to increase your academic, social, emotional and physical well-being, there is no better time to be a Mountaineer! Read below and explore our navigation links to learn more.
