Military Affiliated Admission
Coin Ceremony

For active-duty military, reassignment and deployment are facts of life. That's why we offer numerous courses – and entire programs – online. It's also the reason we offer out-of-state fee waivers to active-duty soldiers.

If you're stationed at Fort Campbell or retired in the Clarksville area, you also will be able to take advantage of the many programs offered at our Austin Peay Center at Fort Campbell and on our main campus, which is located just a few miles from post.

NEW: Reduced tuition for ALL military-affiliated students

  1. In-state tuition to all of the nation's military-affiliated students
  2. Reduced cost of courses to $250 per credit hour for uniformed military students
  3. Waiving admissions application fees
