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 nearly 1300 members and is coordinated in the office of Student Affairs.

To join the APSU parent/family association, please complete the online APPA Membership Form and submit.  Most communication is accomplished by e-mail.  There is no cost to join!

The APPA will strive 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

Members receive updates on important deadlines and other information to assist their students in transitioning and persisting in their University life.

All parents and families, whether they join the parents association or not, will receive support and assistance from the Office of Student Affairs and the University.  We are dedicated to the partnership with our parents and families to support you and your student throughout your APSU experience!
