Finalists and Alternates will be notified of acceptance via their Uniapp account during the first week of April 2020. Students must log in to Uniapp and accept/decline the invitation. 


Finalists: Look for an email from Lori Tyler (tylerle@appstate.edu) by April 6 with additional instructions. Emails will be sent to both student and parent(s) email addresses that were indicated on the application.

Forms and documents will begin to be emailed after April 10 to all AppState SVSM Finalists. Please read all of the included information and return all forms by the stated deadlines. 

Classes will be assigned after you accept our invitation and you have submitted your class preferences. Please review class descriptions (found under the Academics tab). You will be emailed a link to a Google Form to complete in order to rank your choices. We will do our best to assign you to your top choices, but please know that no matter what class you are assigned, you will have a fantastic learning experience!


Alternates:  Please know that we do not have an 'order' to your listing on our alternate list. We invite alternates according to their interest indicated on your SVSM application and spacing in our research classes. Alternate invitations will occur April 10 - May 10. Lori Tyler will also be sending you an email on or before April 10 with additional information.
