Account Balances and Holds

Account Balances

As part of the enrollment process each semester, students must agree to the Statement of Financial Responsibility, which in part states:

 “I understand that I am willfully accepting, without duress, the full legal obligation that requires me to pay for all tuition, fees, and other associated charges assessed as a result of my registration, enrollment/attendance, and/or receipt of services at or provided by Austin Peay State University…”

For currently enrolled students, e-bill statements for balances due are issued every month to your APSU email. Balances are expected to be paid immediately.


If an account balance is not paid after 30 days and is greater than $100.00, a hold will be placed on your account. A hold will prevent you from requesting a copy of your transcript or diploma, adding/dropping classes, and registering for a future term. The prior balance must be paid in full before the hold can be lifted from an account.

Once a balance is paid in full, all services will be restored. Holds will not be released for 5 business days if paid in full by check.
