Guide Me

At Appalachian State University we prepare “students to lead purposeful lives as engaged global citizens who understand their responsibilities in creating a sustainable future for all” and international experiences play a major role in accomplishing this.  With direct exchange partners, ISEP and Affiliate relationships, international internships and student teaching, and 70+ faculty led options a year, students are able to find an option regardless of major, background, or circumstances. The following pages are built to help students understand the process of going abroad; from choosing a program to returning to Appalachian.
