As-U-R Student Application

Any degree-seeking undergraduate student who attends, or plans to attend App State is eligible to apply. As-U-R admits incoming freshman, transfer students, and current students, depending on program capacity. When a student is admitted to As-U-R they are retained in our program until graduation.

Application Process

Students must be admitted to App State through the regular admissions process in order to be considered for As-U-R admission.

As-U-R accepts applications and offers admission during SUMMER (May 15 to Aug 1) and WINTER (Dec 1 to Dec 31). Due to the small nature of the program, eligible students may not be assigned a mentor until one becomes available. If the As-U-R program is at full capacity and a student is identified as eligible for services, the student will be connected with a Peer Academic Coach for temporary support until an As-U-R mentor becomes available. These students will be permitted to utilize ALL other As-U-R resources, except As-U-R mentoring. Please contact the As-U-R Services Coordinator with questions or concerns.

Applying is a 3-step process:

  1. Submit the Google Form Application
  2. Meet with the Director or Assitant Director for an interview
  3. Take two online assessments (access given during interview)

Executive Function Challenges

As-U-R is an intensive student support program focused on supporting students with executive function challenges (EFCs). Skills related to academic success, such as organization, planning and setting priorities, getting started and completing tasks, monitoring progress on tasks, and decision-making are referred to as executive function skills.

Executive function challenges are defined as chronic difficulties in organizing, planning, and carrying out tasks and can make success in college-level academics much more difficult.

Some college students with EFCs may have previously been assessed for or even diagnosed with ADHD or a learning disability, but others may not, despite struggling with such tasks.

We have the capacity to support approximately 150 students at any given time. In addition to our full-time staff, As-U-R has a team of graduate assistants that intensively support our student population. For the 2023-2024 academic year, As-U-R is 100% free.
