Historical Note

The General College of Appalachian State University was established in 1968, with the restructuring of Appalachian State Teacher’s College into multi-disciplinary university. At that time, General College comprised Financial Aid, Medical Services, the Registrar, the student union, security, advising, and other functions, some of which moved to Student Development, Academic Affairs, and Business Affairs in the early 1970s. The General College also contained several academic programs, including International Programs, Interdisciplinary Studies, Freshman Seminar, and the Honors Program. Many of these programs are now under University College.
