Online Advising

Austin Peay State University provides academic advisors for every student at the university. Students are required to meet with their advisor before registering for classes each semester. During this meeting, the advisor will provide guidance to help each student reach his or her academic and career objectives. Advisors will also discuss the recommended class schedule for the upcoming semester and will provide the student with the alternate PIN needed in order to register for classes.

Students may email or meet with their advisors as often as needed throughout the semester. The following table shows some of the topics frequently discussed with an advisor.
