Note: ERA is an online advising course; it is not in-person advising. All new students will meet one-on-one with an advisor at Orientation to complete or review their schedule of classes.
What is the Early Registration Advising course (ERA)?
The ERA course modules will provide you with the academic information necessary to enroll yourself in your first-semester classes.
You must complete the tutorial prior to your Orientation session. Once you complete ERA and you have registered for an Orientation session, you will be issued a registration PIN to your Appalachian email account to start registering for classes (beginning December 2, 2019 at noon). So, the sooner you complete ERA, the sooner you can register for classes.
Yes, we want you to begin registering for classees BEFORE orientation. You will solidify and update your class schedule with an advisor at Orientation.
Appalachian also has online placement testing that you might need to complete prior to registering for classes. Find out if you need to take these tests.
