Parents and Families

Be there with your student.

College can be one of the most exciting periods in one's life. And one of the most instrumental influences to the success of a student is a well-informed parent. We are here to help you be there for all the big moments your student will experience during their time at Austin Peay State University.

We’ve all heard it takes a village to raise a child. In the same sense, it takes a village to get a student through college!

At Austin Peay, we share your desire to see your student graduate with a college degree. More than that, we want your student to leave APSU with unforgettable memories, lifelong friends and the knowledge needed to succeed.

With that in mind, we have developed this site to help you become familiar with our community and the resources available to your student. As you talk with your student, please remind them about our free health, counseling, and academic support services as well as co-curricular development and leadership experiences.
