The Aspire Appalachian Co-Admission Program provides students who complete select two-year associate degree transfer programs at Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute (must earn a 2.25 GPA or higher and finish Associate Degree within three years) with guaranteed admission to Appalachian State to finish their undergraduate degree.
The agreement will create a seamless pathway from CCC&TI to Appalachian State that includes academic and financial aid advising support for students to prepare them for a successful transition from community college to the university.
Aspire Appalachian students will have up to three years to complete the Associate in Arts, Associate in Science or Associate in Applied Science degrees before enrolling at Appalachian State. Aspire students also will benefit from waived application fees at Appalachian State, coordinated financial aid programs, coordinated degree completion and on-site admissions and academic advising.
