Welcome to the Appalachian Community

*Please note: Students who would like to use their Express Account during the summer, but are not enrolled in summer sessions will need to call the AppCard office (828-262-6141) to activate their account before using or depositing money.  

Having an AppCard is all you need to identify yourself as a member of the Appalachian State University community.

The AppCard, Appalachian State University's photo ID card, is issued to all students, faculty, staff and retired employees and serves as campus identification. Dependents of students, permanent employees, and retired employees are also eligible for AppCards and the associated privileges.

These cards are electronically encoded to provide access to campus facilities and events:

  • Library checkouts
  • Residence halls and building access
  • Recreation facilities
  • Intercollegiate events
  • Many other services offered by App State

The AppCard also provides access to Meal Accounts and Express Accounts.

The AppCard Office, part of Appalachian Food Services, is responsible for issuing all AppCards.
