Name Information
Students 60 and 65 years of age or older, and students with disabilities


Tennessee residents age 60 or older, along with those who are permanently or totally disabled, may audit (take without earning college credit) a course without paying fees as provided by Tennessee law. To do so, the student must file a birth certificate or physician’s certification of permanent, total disability with the APSU Office of the Registrar. Forms will be duplicated and originals returned to students.

Tennessee residents who will turn 65 or older during the semester/term – along with students who are permanently, totally disabled – may register in courses for college credit at a discounted tuition rate. Students are accepted according to the space available. Students pay half of the regular cost per credit hour, with a maximum of $70 per semester. Students also must pay any special course fees (online course fee, business course fee, science consumables fee, music fee, nursing clinical fee and late registration fee). Appropriate documentation is required. Contact the Registrar's Office for registration timetables and procedures at (931) 221-7121.
 

Concurrent Enrollment Discounts


Concurrent enrollment is when the Fort Campbell term is completely embedded in the main campus term.  Fall II and Spring II (Fort Campbell terms), are considered concurrent because both terms begin and end within the main campus term.  Fall I and Spring I terms both begin prior to the main campus term, therefore, they are not considered concurrent. If you are enrolled for and have paid for at least 12 credit hours of undergraduate tuition or 10 credit hours of graduate tuition on main campus, you are entitled to a concurrent enrollment discount for classes taken during the second Fort Campbell terms. The discount is only applied to tuition. Students are still responsible for all other fees such as the technology access fee, and any special course fees such as the web on-line course fee.   An email will be sent once the adjustment has been made to your account.  You must still confirm your classes before the drop date.  The link below provides instructions on how to confirm your classes.   http://www.apsu.edu/confirm

Concurrent enrollment discounts will not be prorated if a class is dropped at any time during an adjustment period in which the discount was applied.  The discount will be reversed in full since the class was not completed.
