Tennessee residents age 60 or older, along with those who are permanently or totally disabled, may audit (take without earning college credit) a course without paying fees as provided by Tennessee law. To do so, the student must file a birth certificate or physician’s certification of permanent, total disability with the APSU Office of the Registrar. Forms will be duplicated and originals returned to students.

Tennessee residents who will turn 65 or older during the semester/term – along with students who are permanently, totally disabled – may register in courses for college credit at a discounted tuition rate. Students are accepted according to the space available. Students pay half of the regular cost per credit hour, with a maximum of $70 per semester. Students also must pay any special course fees (online course fee, business course fee, science consumables fee, music fee, nursing clinical fee and late registration fee). Appropriate documentation is required. Contact the Registrar's Office for registration timetables and procedures at (931) 221-7121.

Concurrent enrollment is when the Fort Campbell Campus term is completely embedded into the Clarksville Campus term. Fall II and Spring II (Fort Campbell Campbell terms), are considered concurrent because both terms begin and end within the Clarksville Campus Fall and Spring terms. Fall I and Spring I terms both begin prior to the Fall and Spring Clarksville Campus terms; therefore, they are not considered concurrent. If you are enrolled for and have paid for at least 12 credit hours of undergraduate tuition or 10 credit hours of graduate tuition on Clarksville Campus, you are entitled to a concurrent enrollment discount for classes taken during the second Fort Campbell terms (Fall II and Spring II). The discount is only applied to tuition, students are still responsible for all other fees such as the technology access fee, and any special course fees such as the web on-line course fee. An email will be sent once the adjustment has been made to your account, you must still confirm your classes before the drop date. The link below provides instructions on how to confirm your classes.   https://www.apsu.edu/confirm

** Concurrent enrollment discounts will not be prorated if a class is dropped at any time during an adjustment period in which the discount was applied. The discount will be reversed in full since the class was not completed.

This program allows uniformed military personnel stationed outside of Tennessee to pay in-state tuition rates for credit ArmyIgnitED courses instead of more expensive out-of-state tuition rates.

The out-of-state fee waiver is available to spouses and family members of active duty military personnel.
