To do this, go to your OneStop page and begin the registration process. First things first, select your Web Self Service tab. From there, select "Student." Under "Student," you'll see "Registration." Click there to really get things going. From there, you'll click "Add or Drop Classes." This section lets you browse the classes available for a given semester or term. Make sure you select the semester you want to sign up for. For example, Ft. Campbell classes will be available in "Fall Term I 2012" or Fall Term II 2012" while Austin Peay main campus classes will be under "Fall Semester 2012." The Tools You Need Austin Peay at Ft. Campbell has an on campus Bookstore. We suggest that you give them a call and find out what times they are open and operating. Every student needs books. You'll get yours at either the Ft. Campbell Bookstore or at the Ann Ross bookstore. The Gov Says try looking for books in other places as well. The Ann Ross Bookstore rents books to students. Some basic programs that most students will need are a word processor and a presentation tool. If you don't have access to these programs yourself, feel free to use the computers located in your classes or in the library for your study and research. Austin Peay at Ft. Campbell also offers students the chance to learn about Library Services. Also, the Research Assistance Desk visits the Ft. Campbell Campus to lend a hand. Every Wednesday from 9:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., a Library worker visits the Ft. Campbell campus to show students how to:
navigate through databases
look up books or research materials

CAMPBELL Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Step 4 Step 7 Step 8 Step 6 Step 5 OneStop is Austin Peay's online portal for most of the things you'll need while at APSU. Probably the most important website you'll visit while you're at Austin Peay, OneStop is where some of the most useful information is located. OneStop Advisement The OneStop Degree Compass is a tool developed by Austin Peay to help you figure out what classes to take next.

It's located on the "Home" tab of your OneStop page. It takes the classes you've already taken, core requirements, and your major (if you have one) requirements into consideration. It'll work its magic and produce a list of classes that you might be interested in taking. Some of the classes it shows you will be from your major requirements. Others might be core requirements. And some might be classes that can follow a class you have already taken. Logging into OneStop Degree Compass Logging into your OneStop account is easy. All you need to know is your login name and your birthday. Initial login information will be the first letter of your first name, your last name, and possibly numbers at the end. The most important part to remember is that your login name is the exact same as your email address before the "@" symbol. LOGIN PASSWORD Your default password will always be your 6(six) digit birthday. MM/DD/YY. For example, if you were born on January 5, 1985, your password would be 010585. Finding and Changing Your Login Information. Once you've gotten into OneStop, you may want to change your password. To do that, follow these easy steps. It's a hub of answers for many of your questions.
Where do I sign up for classes?
Who is my adviser?
What personal information does Austin Peay have?
Why can't I sign up for this class?
And many more. While this orientation will give you a brief overview of just some of the things OneStop has to offer, take plenty of time to look over it yourself and familiarize yourself with it. This section gives you contact information for just about anyone you'll need to contact here at Austin Peay. If you need to give someone a call, send an email, or go to a site, this section is here to help. Thank You Officially, Welcome to Austin Peay! We're happy you're here and we look forward to seeing you on campus and online. Remember, never hesitate to ask for more information. Austin Peay prides itself in the ability to help students find exactly what they need. The Bursar's Office is where you go to pay any fees or tuition. The Registrar's Office, for the most part, is the office that has to do with classes and registering for classes. The Registrar's Office is in charge of a number of things, from designing the class schedules to outlining course requirements. If it has to do with a course, it probably had to go through the Registrar's Office. Most of your questions about classes, scheduling, and registration can be answered through the Registrar's Office.

Some questions could include:
What time are classes scheduled for?
Where are classes located?
Where do I register for classes?
What exactly is a particular class about?
Why can't I sign up for classes?
Will my credits transfer from another school? HOLDS An academic hold can be a bothersome thing. Most often, holds prevent you from signing up for classes or from advancing within the university. The Registrar's Office can help you with transcript holds.

In rare cases, other types of holds may crop up. On your OneStop "Holds" page, you can find what holds you currently have and which department they are associated with. Transfer Information Another aspect of your collegiate life that the Registrar's Office handles would be most issues having to do with course transfer information. Whether you're transferring transcripts to or from Austin Peay or asking for course credits from a class taken somewhere else, the Registrar's Office is the place to look. AP Self Service AP Self Service is basically the tabbed menu from your OneStop page. It's a handy alternative to using OneStop if the servers are ever down. Registering For Classes While the Registrar's Office handles the registration process, the section dedicated to helping you register for classes is included separately for your convenience. Be sure to look there for any questions. Grade Information As you take classes, there may come a time when you need to drop a course. Don't worry yourself over it, this happens to many students. It is important to know when to drop a course, though. Depending on how long you wait, you could find yourself with a failing grade that sticks to your record. The Veterans Affairs Office assists eligible students in applying and obtaining their VA education benefits to help offset their educational expenses.. The benefits you can be awarded differs from person to person but everyone should look into Veterans Benefits. When you visit the VA Office, you may be given packets of information and paperwork for every benefit you are eligible for. Remember, keep up with these separate packets. Each benefit will have a different packet. VA Deferment refers to the option for you to defer your tuition payments for an allotted time. This is especially helpful for the veteran or family member who is tight on funds. Remember, though, that you will still have to pay for your tuition. Stay in touch with the VA Office and keep up with your payments and deferments. You can check the status of your VA enrollment certifications through your OneStop page. Please feel free to call the Veterans Affairs office anytime you have a question. Their hours are 8:00 a.m. through 4:30 p.m. and they can be reached at (931)221.7760 (Main Campus) or
(931)221.1462 (Ft. Campbell Campus).
If there isn't an answer, please leave your name, phone number, and your A number. To apply, go to the primary Veterans Affairs website and select the “How To Apply” tab on the left. From there, you can choose read either the new student or transfer student application process. Financial Aid TV Financial Aid TV is a valuable resource that Austin Peay offers to its students. Basically, it's a television program that you can view online that can show you videos for every process you need to know about in the Financial Aid Office. When you withdraw from a class by a certain time, you will receive a "W" for that class, meaning you withdrew. When you withdraw after a certain time, though, you may or may not receive a "W" for that class. You could end up failing it completely. This is referred to as the "WF" period, where you must request permission from your professor and, granted that permission, you may withdraw from the course. Even with permission, the professor may allow you to drop, but will still fail you if you do so. Make sure everything is in line before you drop a class! Financial Aid Bursar's Office Registrar's Office Registering for Classes How to Get to Your Classes The Tools You Need How to Use Prezi Just For Fun Civilian Class Selection Austin Peay
Online Orientation The Gov Says that course information can also be found in your class' Academic Bulletin and in the class schedule on OneStop. You should also check the monetary consequences of dropping a class. Before you drop a class, especially if you have received financial aid, VA benefits, military tuition assistance, scholarships or any other form of financial assistance, be sure to contact Financial Aid and Veterans Affairs (if it applies) and ask about the potential consequences. The Woodward Library on campus is also available to all APSU students. You may need your student ID to utilize all available services. You WILL need your student ID card to access the library after 9 pm. The registration process differs between ACTIVE DUTY students and CIVILIAN students. Here, you'll find an outline of both forms of registration for future use. Civilian Registration For the Ft. Campbell Campus, your first visit to campus will need to begin at the visitors center, located to the right of Gate 4.

Civilian students will need to take their driver’s license, registration, and proof of insurance to the visitors center where a temporary pass will be issued.

This pass will allow you access to the military base for the purpose of attending classes.

You will need to pick up an “extended pass memo” from Austin Peay personnel on the first floor of the Education Center, room 104A. Returning to the visitors center with the memo will allow security to issue you a pass for the length of the term.

You will need to repeat the process of obtaining an extended pass memo and a length of term parking pass each semester you are taking classes held at Ft. Campbell.

PARKING: Military students and their families will already have access to the military base, so you are free to park in front of the Ed Center or the APSU building. To access the Main Campus at 601 College Street in Clarksville, simply drive to any entrance and find an appropriate parking space.

The frequency of your visits will decide what you will need in order to park on campus and where you’ll park.

If you are enrolled in classes on both campuses, you will need to apply for a parking permit at the Shasteen building at the main campus.

If you are visiting for one day, you can pick up a visitors pass at the same location. Students visiting the main campus after 5 p.m. will not need a parking permit and parking is open with the exception of handicapped or housing designated parking.

Reference the Parking Map in this presentation to determine what parking areas are available to all students.

Entrance to some buildings may require your official Austin Peay I.D. card. If you have never heard of Go Army Ed (GAE), it's the method that military students use to register for classes so that the class is paid for by TA. You can visit GAE at www.goarmyed.com

You'll need to go there, create an account, fill out a common application and select Austin Peay State University as your home institution.

Next, you'll need to get a Statement of Understanding signed by your commanding officer. Also, you need to meet with an ACES counselor to make sure that your statement gets scanned into the system.

Once you've finished that AND are admitted to Austin Peay, you can go to goarmyed.com and register for your courses.

If you have any questions on the process, please reference the multiple routes presented at:

https://www.goarmyed.com/public/public_resources_help-desk.aspx

Finally, please note that it can take 24-48 hours for Austin Peay to get the information that GAE sends.

It is also important to know that just because GAE says you're registered, there is still the chance that you have not met all required registration criteria for Austin Peay and you CAN be rejected from a course for that. Select "Personal Information" Select "Change your PIN" Enter your old PIN to verify that you're you. Enter your new PIN and select "Change PIN." The Gov Says that your PIN can only be a grouping of 6 numbers. To View your OneStop/LIVE Email/D2L/RMS login information From the Personal Information tab in OneStop, select
"View APSU OneStop/LIVE Email/D2L/RMS login information." All of your DEFAULT login information will be displayed here. From there, select your Financial Aid and Veterans Affairs tab. You should then see a series of tabs, the last being "Accept Award Offer." From here it's all up to you whether you accept awards given, decline them, or partially accept them. Select the year you wish to accept awards for. To accept your award offers, start off at your Web Self Service page, located through either OneStop or Self Service. Select "Award for Aid Year" to choose which year you want to accept awards for. Active Duty Registration Contact information for the Help Desk at Go Army Ed:

Phone: 931-221-1685
http://www.apsu.edu/military/military-student-center Desire 2 Learn (D2L) D2L is Austin Peay's hub for your online classes. It's where you go to take your tests, submit your essays, and get your lessons ONLY for online classes. The fastest and easiest way to get to your D2L is to go through your OneStop page. The link is located in the upper right-hand corner of the Home page. Once you've gotten logged into D2L, you'll probably wonder what everything means. This section is a short introduction to D2L and most of the things you'll need to know on day ONE of your classes. Remember to go check things out for yourself, though. The Gov Says that logging into D2L from your OneStop page lets you log right in. No password or username needed! Logging into D2L is easy! All you need is the same login information you use for your OneStop login. For your USERNAME, you'll need the first letter of your first name, all or part of your last name, and possibly a numerical value. This is also the beginning of your Austin Peay Email address. Your password is whatever your PIN is set to for OneStop. By default, it is your 6 digit birthday. LOGIN INFO NOTE* Although GAE students are not required to meet with an APSU advisor, advisement prior to registration is recommended. DON'T KNOW YOUR A#? Call the Registrar's Office at (931) 221.7011 You need to check and see if your adviser is located at Austin Peay Main Campus or on the Ft. Campbell Campus. To find out whether your adviser is located on the Main Campus or not, contact the Registrar's Office at (931) 221.7150 Seeing Your Adviser You've probably already registered for classes or your very first semester or term. If not, you'll see an adviser that MAY NOT BE your permanent adviser. This will most likely be a person who is just helping first time students register for classes. You will need to meet with your adviser in order to register for classes every semester or term.
The adviser's job is to:
tell you which classes are going to fit your plan the best
which classes you probably should avoid
check off that you have been advised, which lets you sign up for classes Most of the time, you can email your adviser and set up a meeting with them. Every adviser is different, though, and some will need you to call or even come to their office to set up a meeting. Nearly ALWAYS the actual meeting will be in-person. Look up the specific program you're looking to take a class in. For example, English 1010 would be in the English section. By clicking "View Sections" you're taken to a page that will show you the dates and times of every session offered for a specific class. The SUBJ is the specific subject of the class. The CRN is the Course Registration Number. This is the specific number assigned to each individual class session. The CRSE is the Course Number. Courses are split into 5 categories of classes, each by the 1000's. English 1010, for example, is a lower level class. English 4000, though, is a much more difficult class. Classes in the 5OOO's are graduate level courses. This is the title of the class. This is the time of day that each class will occur. The REM section displays the number of seats left in this class. This example shows that no seats are left. This is the instructor of the class. This is the location of the class. In this example, the class is located on Main Campus, Kimbrough building, room 115. This is when the class sessions begin and end. The CAP is the maximum number of students allowed to be in the classroom before it is "Closed." The days of the week that the class meets.
M=Monday
T=Tuesday
W=Wednesday
R=Thursday
F=Friday Something that may be particularly helpful to you is that the Woodward Library offers Document Delivery, meaning that they will deliver a book you check out online to the Ft. Campbell library. Even better, all you have to do to return the book is return it to the Austin Peay administrative offices. Most often, the word processor is the program that you'll use to write your papers and research. Some available options are Microsoft Word and OpenOffice. The presentation tool will most often be Microsoft PowerPoint. Perhaps you could impress a professor with your knowledge of Prezi! Just be sure to ask if a Prezi is safe to use first. An incredible resource for many of your questions is the Ft. Campbell @ Austin Peay website, located within the Austin Peay network of websites. The web address is The first page you'll see after logging in is the Home Page. This shows you some news, where to go for help, and most importantly, what classes you have online portals for. You should know that ALL of your classes will be listed here, but not all of your classes will have fully fleshed out online options. Some professors like to put presentations, lectures, and articles onto their D2L pages, even if the classroom is NOT an online course. ALL online courses will be administered through your D2L page, though. You MUST go here for your classwork, to turn in papers, and practically anything else. The only exception to this rule is when the professor explains otherwise. Every class you take has its own D2L page. On EACH of those pages, there are links at the top to navigate the site. Using those links, you can make your way around your online courses. Here is a brief explanation of the most commonly used links. The Content section is where your professor will post worksheets, assignments, or presentations.

You should access this section every day to be sure you have everything up to date for your class. Many professors will still want to have discussions about the class and about assignments. This section will have forum posts from the professor where you can comment and discuss the lesson. The Gov Says that the general rule is that you must read everyone's posts and write two of your own. The Dropbox is where you will most often drop off finished assignments. The Quizzes section is where you'll go to take your online quizzes and tests. Remember! No amount of browsing around in this orientation can prepare you for your online classes quite like going into D2L and looking around yourself. http://www.apsu.edu/apfc Admissions
