All Austin Peay State University classes will only be offered online after March 23 to promote social distancing and to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Since some Austin Peay students have limited or no access to computers or the internet, the university recently made arrangements with partner sites in Middle Tennessee to provide this access.
Those partner sites include:
• the American Job Center in Ashland City. Austin Peay students can use their laptops, tablets or other devices to connect to the center’s internet. The center also offers computers for public use.
• the Bibb-White Bluff Civic Center in Dickson County. Students can use their laptops, tablets or other devices to connect to the center’s internet. The center also offers four computers for public use in the library. To use the computers, students will need to get a library card, which is free.
• Highland Crest in Springfield. Austin Peay’s High Crest campus remains open, and students can use the facility to use their laptops, tablets and other devices.
The Tennessee Secretary of State website at sos.tn.gov/products/tsla/tennessee-public-library-directory also provides a directory of all public libraries in Tennessee with addresses, contact information, hours of operation and technical services. Local libraries across the state often provide internet and computer access, which make them resources for Austin Peay students.
