Military and Veteran Admission
Coin Ceremony

For active-duty military, reassignment and deployment are facts of life. That's why we offer numerous courses – and entire programs – online. It's also the reason we offer out-of-state fee waivers to active-duty soldiers.

If you're stationed at Fort Campbell or retired in the Clarksville area, you also will be able to take advantage of the many programs offered at our Austin Peay Center @ Fort Campbell and on our main campus, which is located just a few miles from post.
