File your FAFSA as soon as possible if you are planning to use financial aid for the academic school year. Don't procrastinate!

Please check your APSU email for information from the Office of the Registrar regarding priority registration. Make an appointment with your advisor to be advised.

Step Three

Prepare for advising by reviewing the general education core requirements and the requirements for your major in the APSU Bulletin. Check out what classes are available by viewing the printable class schedule. 

Degree Compass from The Gov will provide you with a list of suggested courses to enroll in for your major.  You will find this list located in your OneStop under the Degree Compass tab.  Check it out!

Seek advisement.  Once you have been advised, you will be cleared to register.  Log in to AP OneStop and check your OneStop Advising to see which terms you have been cleared to register for.
