If you apply, be sure to submit the separate scholarship application found at this link: https://www.apsu.edu/secure/scholarships/index.htm
Any extra money is helpful, trust me!

If you're wondering how to say Peay ... you're not alone. It's pronounced like pea. Now, don't be alarmed if you do decide to attend school here, or even if you just make a visit... A common cheer here is let's go PEAY. What other college could say that?
April from Clarksville, TN
Have a little money saved up for books at least 400 before the semester starts because sometimes refund checks come later then the teacher wants to start working on material

Turn in your application as early as possible. Fill out financial aid forms as fast as possible, the money does run out. If possible live on campus, it makes the early class that you are likely to have to get a lot easier, if you don't have to get up extra early to drive to school. If you must drive arrive sometime between 6:30-7:10 for morning classes, and 12:30-1:10 for afternoon classes if want a decent parking spot. If you have a dorm room that is kind of out of the way, or if you are a commuter student I would try to get a locker, there are some lockers on the first floor of the MUC and there are some for Art students in Trahern. There may be more but I don't know where they are.

AS a prospective student, APSU is a simple place to focus on your studies but still have fun and enjoy the town.
Marguerite from Clarksville, TN
Most all of the professors are pretty understanding, and all have e-mails which is a great way to keep in touch with them if something comes up or if you need help with an assignment. There is also a website that professors use called Determined 2 Learn or D2L; and on this website professors can post assignments, how to guides, links to helpful websites, hold discussions on a forum, create a space for you to submit your work, and even set up a chat room for you to talk to your other classmates with. It’s a pretty neat site, though only one of my teachers used it this past semester.
I say to learn to like coffee. If you’re a good student, you will be up studying all night or finishing a paper at some point. I recommend going to Einstein’s, a coffee shop there at APSU, it is open late! Good luck everyone and don’t let the stress of learning to be an adult get to you! ?
Christina from Old Hickory, TN
It's a great value. If you are out of state, you can get a waiver and pay in state tuition by getting a 24 or higher on your ACT. If you want to get involved and care about your academic career, APSU is a great school.

Austin Peay is boring but I blame Clarksville for that problem. If you join some type of Organization or Sport then that will take away from the boring. Also attend as many events as you can because thats how people will recognize you. If you put forth the effort in meeting people then they will do the same.
Elizabeth from Nashville, TN
Be sure to get involved! School will suck if you aren't involved in extracurricular activities. There is always something going on and if you attend these functions and join these clubs, you won't have a problem meeting new people and truly enjoying yourself.
And on a serious note: You are an adult now, so be responsible. It's great to have fun, but procrastination will catch up to you so just be wise with your scheduling. :]
Consuelo from Nashville, TN
Apply here.If u r looking for a school that cares about students and in your budget price.
