APSU entrance

Your application is the first step to enrollment.

You must be admitted before you can register and attend class.

Please use our checklists to ensure you submit all required documents.
   NEW students: checklist for first-time applicants.
   NEW Fort Campbell High School applicants only: checklist.
Links to each of the checklist items (and helpful notes) are provided below.

New students ONLY (returning students do not need to reapply if they maintain an APSU GPA of 2.75 or higher):


1. Submit your online Application for Admission


   - Save the Login ID and PIN you created for future use (the Login ID is case sensitive).
   - Select "Dual Enrolled New" as your application type (this waives the application fee).
   - When you are asked to select a major, choose "Undecided" or "UND". (For a concentration, simply choose an area that is the best fit for you.)
   - Providing your Social Security Number (SSN) allows the business office to submit your 1098 form at the end of the year. Not providing your SSN will result in a hold on your account that prevents you from future registration. 

 NOTE: Dual enrollment students should NOT use the upload feature found in the application system. Please continue to forward paper forms and transcripts directly to


2. New Student Packet

 Includes Student Authorization form, Parent Authorization form, and FERPA release.

The FERPA form allows APSU staff to discuss matters with your parent/guardian on your behalf.  

  • A copy of your photo ID is required if the FERPA form is not submitted via your high school counselor.

  • The form must be completed in all sections; the 4-digit PIN is for you to create (it is not generated by APSU).


3. Official high school transcript 

A final transcript for the term(s) completed prior to your enrollment. For example, fall semester applicants will be required to submit a transcript inclusive of the prior academic year. Spring applicants should submit a transcript through the end of the previous fall semester.


4. Official ACT or equivalent test scores

Student reports are not accepted. Recommended deadlines for testing are found near the bottom of this page. You may also submit additional reports with higher scores in subsequent semesters. See our program requirements for a reminder of the test scores that we accept in addition to the ACT.  


Don't stop now - this takes care of your admission documents, but there are a few more required items...

 Returning students do not need to reapply if they maintain an APSU GPA of 2.75 or higher. However, they do need to submit the form below:
