Employee Discount Program

We like to think this program is a bridge between campus and the larger community; a benefit for both our employees and our local businesses. Businesses listed here provide Appalachian students, faculty, and staff a discount upon presentation of an AppState ID.

Interested in having your business participate in this program? Contact our office at relocation@appstate.edu or call 828-262-6483 to obtain a registration form.

Please note: at this time we are only enrolling LOCAL businesses, meaning businesses that have a physical presence in the area. Businesses that operate solely online or are outside of our area are not currently eligible to participate in the employee discount program.
