Thank you for visiting our website and allowing us the opportunity to assist you.

The Academic Support Center exists for only one reason. We are here to help students achieve their educational objectives. We hope that as you work with our staff, you find that each person is committed to the success of the students at Austin Peay State University. Additionally, we are striving to help other students reach their educational goals through our Community Tutoring program.

Frequently, I encounter individuals who feel like either they should not seek our support or that we will be unable to help them. With that in mind, let me address some of the reasons for not seeking help that I have heard over the years.

Bottom line: We are here for you. I invite you to let us show you our commitment to your success.

Martin Golson
Director, Academic Support
