Steps to becoming a Gov:

  • Complete your online application
  • Pay a one-time, non-refundable $25 fee when completing your application. This may be paid online when submitting your application, through the mail, or in person at the Cashier's Window in the Ellington Building (if completing a paper application). Checks should be made out to APSU. Application fees are paid online only when completing an online admissions application.
  • Request for your high school transcript or GED/HiSET scores to be sent to our Office of Admissions. Transcripts and test scores must be officially sent to be used for admission purposes. We cannot accept hand-delivered transcripts, special education diplomas or high school certificates.
  • If you have taken college courses we will need your official college/university transcript(s) as well. To see how credits will transfer, please visit our transfer equivalency page.
  • Additional Requirements- beyond the above required documents, there may be other documents needed prior to enrollment at Austin Peay. For a more in-depth application checklist visit here.
