For Faculty

Faculty Recommendation Form Closing at 11:59 pm on each deadline date 

OSR cannot accept any late Faculty Recommendations. We cannot accept emailed, scanned, faxed, etc. recommendations - they must be received through our online link on the OSR website before the form closes at 11:59 pm on the deadline date (15th of each month). Once the form has closed for that month's deadline, no late recommendations will be considered. The form will reopen at 11:59 pm on the 17th of the month for new submissions.

Apply for Undergraduate Research Assistantships (URA)

All Spring 2023 URA's have been officially awarded. A Summer 2023 deadine will be posted in May, pending funding approval.

We encourage Faculty members to thoroughly discuss the opportunity with an intended undergraduate student and confirm their ability to fulfill the requirements of the position (80 hours of work for the semester) and commit to the time and workload involved with the proposed project.

URAs offer highly motivated undergraduate students the opportunity to work closely with a Faculty mentor on the Faculty member's research, scholarship, or creative activity. The Faculty member, in consultation with an interested undergraduate student at Appalachian State University, is encouraged to apply.

Student Travel Request Form from the Dean of Student's Office

Information to the Dean of Student's Office is needed for travel outside Boone. The information is for emergency contact only.

Faculty and staff taking students on field trips or other excursions need to provide to the Dean of Students a list of student participants BEFORE the class trip. This list is solely for informational purposes, enabling the University to determine the identities of participants in case of emergency. Providing such a list does NOT trigger insurance coverage of any kind.
