Faculty Advisor Program

The ACP Faculty Advisor Program provides students the opportunity to develop a professional relationship with a faculty member who may serve as a role model for the student. By pairing faculty members with students over the course of their academic career the students are given a resource and sounding board where he or she can share his or her goals, academic needs and discuss other issues. This program also provides students exposure to professional interactions with peers, other faculty members and administration. The goal of the program is to provide students with an advocate on the faculty as well as a source of academic and personal support.

The Student Mentor Program is a peer mentoring program at ACP. This program is designed to provide incoming first year students a second or third year student mentor to serve as a resource for them during their first year in pharmacy school. The program hopes to empower students to help themselves and each other.

Non-Discrimination Policy

ACP seeks to attract a diverse student population with demonstrated academic competency and commitment to the profession of pharmacy. ACP does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, color, national origin, religion, disability, marital status, gender, sexual orientation, or veteran’s status.

Examination Accommodations for Students with Disabilities

The Appalachian College of Pharmacy (the College) and its programs do not discriminate against individuals with disabilities in its programs, as those disabilities are defined in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, 29 U.S.C. § 706; 45 C.F.R. § 84.3(k)(3); and the Americans with Disabilities Act, 42 U.S.C. §§ 12101, et seq. In an effort to provide full opportunities to individuals with disabilities, the College offers individualization and reasonable accommodation as required by law. Reasonable accommodations are those that do not fundamentally alter the nature of the College’s educational program, and can be provided without undue financial or administrative burden, and without lowering academic or other essential performance standards.

Students with medically verifiable disabilities may be provided extra time or other reasonable accommodations for completing examinations. Petitions for accommodations must be made to the Dean by September 1 of each academic year for which the student desires them. Each petition should be accompanied by evidence of the medical condition and evidence detailing the accommodations which have been provided the student in past educational settings or examinations. Particular weight is given to accommodations provided in taking the PCAT. The student whose request is granted is responsible for making appropriate arrangements with the School administration.

Individuals who believe they have been discriminated against on the basis of a disability may file a complaint under the College’s Grievance Policy contained in the Student Handbook PDF file and Course Catalog PDF file, which are distributed to students at the beginning of each academic year.
