Who likes to be put on “hold” on the phone? Waiting is no fun.

That's why, this fall, the Austin Peay State University Office of Admissions will debut a Fast Track Admissions Week, Oct. 8-12. Faculty and staff are encouraged to invite high school seniors or transfer students to this event.

During Fast Track Admissions Week, a prospective APSU student will be able to apply for admission and find out that same day if he or she has been admitted to APSU.

The first step is to schedule a campus tour that week. Prospects should call now to reserve their space in a tour group at (931) 221-7661 or go to www.apsu.edu/admissions.

Tours start at 9:45 a.m. and 2 p.m., but prospective students should arrive 30 minutes early so they don't get left behind.

On the day of the tour, students will need to provide an admissions counselor with their application paperwork, including a completed application form, application fee of $15 and high school/college transcripts. Make sure to inform prosepcts that they will need these materials with them.

Also, advise prospects to talk with an admissions counselor prior to coming for the scheduled tourjust to make certain about other required materials are needed, such as military documents or test scores.

Here's the good news: No waiting! If a prospect provides us with all the necessary documents, admissions counselors will evaluate the application while the student tours campus. When the tour is over, the student will know if he or she has been admitted to the University.

Prospects may sign up for Fast Track Admissions Week at APSU by calling (931) 221-7661 or visiting www.apsu.edu/admissions. -- Dennie B. Burke
