The 2024-2025 Undergraduate University Bulletin was prepared in the Spring of 2024. The material presented is for informational purposes only and should not be construed as the basis of a contract between a student and Austin Peay State University.

The provisions of this Bulletin will ordinarily be applied as stated; however, the University reserves the right to change any provision listed in this Bulletin, including, but not limited to, academic requirements for graduation, without actual notice to individual students.

The Class Schedule is available on the AP Onestop each semester and is considered an extension of the Bulletin; the online Schedule is updated as changes in availability of classes occur.

Every effort will be made to keep students informed of any new information and/or changes in provisions listed in this Bulletin. APSU email is the official communication method used by the University to communicate important information to all students. Students are deemed to have received notifications delivered to their respective APSU email address by the University. Failure to promptly check or open email messages delivered to student’s APSUemail address will not excuse a student from the responsibility to act in accordance therewith or extend/delay deadlines contained therein. Students are strongly encouraged to check their APSU email account on a daily basis for messages requiring their prompt attention. Students are strongly discouraged from forwarding APMail email to another email provider. The University hereby disclaims any and all responsibility for the security and confidentiality of information contained in messages forwarded from APSU email to another email provider.

While APSU email is the official communication method used by the University, instructors and students are strongly encouraged to use the Desire-2-Learn(D2L) email system for communications pertaining to courses and course materials. For all online courses, D2L is the official method of email communication between instructors and students. Failure to promptly check or open email messages delivered to student’s D2L email address will not excuse a student from the responsibility to act in accordance therewith or extend/delay deadlines contained therein for any Web-based course. For on-campus and hybrid courses, students and instructors should use the D2L email system whenever possible.

Students must accept the responsibility for staying informed regarding the graduation requirements for the degrees they are pursuing. Therefore, scheduled appointments with an assigned academic adviser each semester are required before the student can enroll.
