Faculty & Staff AppCards

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

The AppCard Office, part of Appalachian Food Services, is responsible for issuing all AppCards. Whether you need to get your first AppCard or a replacement AppCard, we are here to help.

Location / Phone


Trivette Hall
Lower Level
170 Stadium Drive
Monday – Friday
8:00 am – 5:00 pm

AppCards are issued to all faculty and staff on their first day of employment. Employees must present an AppCard (Photo ID) Request Form available from the Office of Human Resource Services or the AppCard Office and employment will be verified. New employees are issued the AppCard at no additional charge. There is a nominal fee for replacement cards. See Costs & Fees information.

The AppCard provides access to:

  • Belk Library & Information Commons
  • Gated parking lots across campus
  • Recreation fitness facilities on campus (with sign-up and payroll deduction)
  • Faculty and Staff Express Accounts (with sign-up)

Faculty & Staff Express Account

The Express Account is an optional account that may be set up for an employee's convenience. This account allows you to purchase goods and services all across campus with your AppCard. Express Accounts cannot be used off campus and funds cannot be withdrawn as cash.

Two types of Express Accounts are available:

  • Faculty/Staff Charge Account: This account is available to full-time permanent Faculty or Staff members. It acts like a credit card with balances being paid by way of simple payroll deduction.
  • Faculty/Staff Debit Account: This account is available to all employees, including temporary employees. It works just like a debit card, and you can deposit additional funds at any time either in the AppCard Office or online.

There is no service charge to open a Faculty/Staff Appalachian Express Account.

What if My AppCard is Lost or Damaged?

See the information on replacement AppCards.


Deactivate Your Lost or Stolen AppCard

The person to whom the AppCard is issued is responsible for its use, including any misuse. If your card is lost or stolen, you will be held responsible until it is reported lost or stolen.

Your AppCard is the ONLY access to your Meal and/or Express Account. If you lose your card, report it to the AppCard Office (828-262-6141), so it can be invalidated. After 5:00 pm and on weekends, report lost AppCards to University Police or online through your AppalNET account. See AppCard Online for details.
