Course and exam schedules are coordinated with the Chief Academic Officer.
The Registrar’s Office complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) and the rules and policies on confidentiality and directory information of the Appalachian School of Law.

Students with a documented disability may be entitled to accommodations to facilitate exam-taking and classroom learning. Students needing special accommodations should fill out a request form (available online and in the Registrar’s Office,) and provide the necessary supporting documentation for the request at least 30 days before the requested effective date of accommodations. The Registrar will forward the request to the Academic Accommodations Committee for review and determination pursuant to the policies and procedures set out in the ASL Catalog & Student Handbook; more specifically, Appendix E.
Accommodations for temporary disabilities or emergency accommodations must be requested each semester in which they are required. The request for emergency accommodations and supporting documentation should be submitted to the Registrar as soon as reasonably possible after the need for accommodation arises. Keep in mind that the process of considering documentation and developing appropriate accommodations will take a minimum of 48 hours. Please remember any and all accommodations requests must be accompanied with a professional evaluation from a medical expert and is required to be renewed at the beginning of every semester each academic year.
