Document Upload

If you have received an email indicating that your application has been received and paid your fee, you can upload supporting materials required by your program online using your application ID or A Number and the PIN you created when you applied. If you upload supporting materials, do not mail paper copies of those same materials to our office.

The College of Graduate Studies requires official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended; however, your application can be reviewed with unofficial transcripts. Previously enrolled APSU students do not need to submit copies of APSU transcripts. In addition, previously enrolled APSU students do not need to re-submit credentials from prior institutions. Transcripts will only be needed from any schools a student has attended since attending Austin Peay.

Document Types

You can upload PDF, Word, and RTF files as well as scanned images of transcripts or scores. Do not upload spreadsheets.  Keep in mind that each of your materials should be less than 4 MB (megabytes) in size. If the item you are uploading is not listed as a document type, please select the “Other” type. You can update any of your existing uploads by re-uploading the same document type. If an item (e.g.: the resume) is more than one page in length, please create one document for that item.  Be sure to submit ALL Materials required by your selected program.  Non-legible scans will not be accepted. 

Departmental Requirements

It is important that you visit the department’s website for your intended program of study. Departments may have specific forms that they would like you to complete and upload, or a specific process for the submission of supplemental materials. If you have questions regarding departmental requirements, please contact the individual program.

These are a few examples of the types of requirements that departments may require:

If required, test scores must be reported officially through each testing company. For help registering for a test or having official scores sent to our office, please visit the Entrance Exams and Test Prep page. If you have a copy of your scores, please upload the score report; unofficial scores can be used for conditional admission. As with transcripts, we will request official scores if you are admitted.

Please make sure you submit your documents before any departmental deadlines. To see if your department has a specific program deadline please visit the Application Deadlines page.
