Can Angular be used with classic asp.net?

I am working on a classic asp.net application. Can you tell me if I will be able to use Angular with classic Asp.net? Or is it only for MVC?

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

A couple of pointers

There is ASP Classic and ASP.Net. Classic ASP.Net is not really a term.

Secondly, Angular is a client side scripting environment (server too if you are using Node.js - but that excludes ASP.Net) whereas ASP is a server side scripting environment.

Upshot: the two don't know anything about each other. When Angular talks to a server it has no idea what the scripting environment is - and it does not care - it asks for data using standard REST calls and the server responds (usually with JSON data).

As long as a server side script can handle a REST call (or a simple POST) and can return data in the required format Angular will work with it.

I don't have any specific examples other than what google will display on a simple search.

There are many examples out there. I don't use Angular with .Net in that way. I build the interface in Angular and then send and receive data from .Net web services.
