The Aspire Appalachian Co-Admission Program provides a seamless pathway from Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute to Appalachian State.
Students who complete eligible two-year associate degree programs
(must graduate with a 2.25 GPA within three years) are guaranteed admission to Appalachian State to complete their undergraduate
(Note: Aspire Appalachian is not a dual enrollment program; students will be admitted to Appalachian State University after meeting all requirements of the Aspire Appalachian program at CCC&TI. Additionally, students are not guaranteed admission into a particular major at Appalachian as some high demand programs may have admission requirements beyond those for general admission to Appalachian.)
Note: Early College or high school students dual-enrolled are not eligible
