Congratulations on your acceptance to Appalachian School of Law! We are excited that you have chosen to begin your law career at ASL. For next steps, follow the checklist below and contact the Admissions Office with any questions.

Post-Admittance Checklist

  • Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) & Financial Aid 

If you haven’t done so already, complete the FAFSA and make sure to list Appalachian School of Law in Step 6. The code for ASL is G35593. 

Federal financial aid: ASL students are eligible to apply for the following types of federal financial aid: 

  • Federal Perkins loans 
  • Federal Direct Loans (unsubsidized) 
  • Federal Graduate/Professional PLUS loans 
  • Federal Work Study 

Institutional Aid: All admitted candidates will be considered automatically for merit scholarships. There is no additional application for ASL scholarships for entering first-year students. To accept a scholarship offer, you must pay the first nonrefundable seat deposit no later than the deadline outlined in the scholarship offer letter. 

  • Accept or Decline Your Offer of Admission to Appalachian School of Law
    To accept your offer of admission, make sure to pay your nonrefundable seat deposit by the deadline listed in the documents you received with your admission letter. Your deposit will be credited toward your first semester tuition when you join us in the fall. To pay your seat deposit online, visit the Apply Now page and scroll to “Seat Deposit.” Under “Seat Deposit,” click “pay now.”

  • Activate Your ASL Email Account
    Once you have paid your seat deposit, we will set up your ASL email account. You will receive an email from “The Google Cloud Team” with instructions on how to activate your account. The information will be sent to the email address on file with LSAC. If you need to update your email address, please contact the Admissions Office.

  • Send your degree-granting transcript
    Before 1L Orientation begins, we need to have one official transcript from your undergraduate degree-granting institution with your degree posted for our files. Unless your final transcript was already sent to us via LSAC’s Credential Assembly Service (CAS), we will need you to send us a final copy of your official transcript noting the completion of your degree requirements.

  • Visit our campus
    If you haven’t done so already, visiting ASL is the best way to get a feel for the campus, scope out housing options, and talk with students and faculty in person. We accommodate our tour schedule to visiting students, and ASL covers hotel fees for admitted students.

  • Find a place to live
    Contact the Office of Admissions for information about housing in the area.

  • Buy your textbooks
    Prior to Orientation, the law school will send out a complete list of textbooks required for all first-year courses.
