Registering at Austin Peay State University
Registering for courses at Austin Peay State University is important to your path to graduation. You will do this at least once a semester, and we want to ensure that information related to this process is readily available.
There are many different elements that contribute to effective and efficient registration. Please review the list below, and utilize the pages linked if further information is needed.
Key Areas: Priority Registration | Key Contact Areas | Changing your Major, Minor, Concentration, or Academic Interest | Course Choice Counts | Four Year Plan | Degree Audit / Degree Works | OneStop Advising Page | Academic Advisor | Academic Holds | Registering | Withdrawing from a Course/Changing Time | Confirming Classes
Students can register at different times due to their classification at the university. If you are a currently enrolled student, the date is when registration opens, not when you have to register by. If you are not attending classes during the semester, you are able to register at the date displayed for 'Open Registration' and thereafter!
Open Registration (March 25): Opens to all students including readmit students who have completed all readmission requirements, Transient and Special students. Students may continue to register until classes begin. Earned hours DO NOT include the courses in which you are currently registered for or any developmental (DSP) course work.
Example 1: At the end of Fall you had 40 earned hours (no DSP hours). You are currently registered for 12 hours; you would register on March 23 (40 earned hrs - 0 DSP hrs = 40 earned hrs).
Example 2: At the end of Fall you had 30 earned hours (6 DSP hours). You are currently registered for 15 hours; you would register March 24 (30 earned hrs - 6 DSP hrs = 24 earned hrs).

Changing your Academic Major, Interest, Concentration, or Minor
In order for federal aid to pay for courses in your major, minor, or other degree requirements, it must be part of your program of study or be necessary to earn the total hours required for your degree. Taking courses not a part of your program of study could result in receiving less federal financial aid and potentially having to pay for courses out-of-pocket. Learn more about Course Choice Counts below!
