Austin Peay Parent/Family Association (APPA)

The Austin Peay Parent (Family) Association (APPA) is an organization of parents and family members of Austin Peay students established to assist students and families during the first year at APSU, and to provide ongoing support during their college experience at Austin Peay.  The APPA has over 1550 members and is coordinated in the office of Student Affairs.


The APPA strives to:

  • Enable families to more actively participate in the college life of their student
  • Interact with and support the family members of other new and returning students
  • Serve as a communication link between the University and families of first-time students
  • Provide feedback to the University about concerns or make suggestions regarding the transition of their student to the college environment
  • Promote APSU in their local community
  • Partner with the University to enhance the likelihood of their student's success

Association members participated this past year in volunteering and helping new students and families check into residence halls in the fall, attending multiple athletic events, attending awards ceremonies, joining us for Homecoming festivities, attending Family Weekend events, communicating via Facebook and email, visiting campus, attending speaker events and performances including the Peay Read speaker, and more!

Members receive updates on important deadlines and other information to assist their students in transitioning and persisting in their University life.  To join the APSU Parent/ Family Association, please complete the online APPA Membership Form and submitMost communication is accomplished by email.  There is no cost to join.
