The Austin Peay Experience

Three student experiences combined into one images. Business meeting, science lab, study abroad.


We're here to prepare you for the life you want, which means giving you life-changing experiences and a college education. That's why we offer $2,000 transformative experience grants to fund your adventures – study abroad, innovative research, internships and more. You can even propose your own project to customize your experience and explore your own interests! We guarantee you'll graduate in four years, or the remaining tuition is on us.*

Four-year Graduation Guarantee

We guarantee you haven’t experienced anything like Austin Peay. What do we mean? As Governors, we guarantee you’ll graduate in four years while participating in life-changing experiences. We’re so confident that you will thrive on our beautiful campus that we’re willing to put money on it. That’s what The Austin Peay Experience is all about.

The life you want begins at Austin Peay, and the sooner you start that life, the better. We know that life doesn’t include thousands of dollars in debt, so we’re guaranteeing that if you enroll in Summer 2024 or later, you will graduate in four years. If you don’t, we’ll pay whatever tuition remains for you to finish.
