App State Hickory Campus (2024)

From the Watauga Academy of 1899 to the App State of today, the mission has remained the same: to provide access to education. This vision now extends to the Greater Hickory area.

At App State’s new Hickory campus, you’ll experience the same excellence that App State is known for — including small class sizes, high-quality student and faculty interaction and exciting undergraduate research opportunities.

You’ll be backed by the strength of the App State network, which includes expert faculty, supportive staff and more than 140,000 alumni worldwide ready to help you open doors to future opportunities.
