Post University welcomes applications from home-schooled students* wishing to pursue further education. Post recognize the important contributions home-schooled students make, both in the classroom and in student life. If a student has been home-schooled and is interested in admission to Post University, should submit the following:
Application for Admission.
Request an official application for admission from the Office of Admissions, complete the form, and return it to the Post University Admissions address provided below. A $40 nonrefundable application fee must accompany the application. Applications may be submitted online at no cost by visiting post.edu/apply.
Secondary School Transcript.
If one is not available, applicants are asked to submit a portfolio of the work most indicative of academic achievements. This may include two to three records, such as grades from community college courses, AP exam results, examples of independent research in mathematics, science or any other academic subjects, or proof of completing high school graduation requirements.
Official Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or American College Test (ACT) results.
Home-school portfolios come to us without a basis for comparison. In this context, SAT and ACT scores take on added importance and help us to evaluate every student’s academic preparedness. Our school code for the SAT is 3698 and the school code for the ACT is 0580.
A high school study plan signed by the parent or provider of the home schooling, and a state secondary completion credential if such documents exist.
Essay/Personal Statement: Decision to be home schooled and description of home-school experience.
Letter of Recommendation: One academic letter of recommendation is required.
*Definition of Home-Schooled Student
Post University defines a home-schooled student as someone who has completed a secondary school education in a home school setting that is treated as a home-school or private school under state law. Home schooled students who have completed a home-based secondary education and are at least 18 years of age are eligible for admission to Post University and Post University’s Accelerated Degree Program, upon satisfaction of all the University’s standard admission requirements.
Not all states, including Connecticut, require or issue transcripts, a high school study plan, or a state secondary school credential. If one is not available, applicants are asked to submit a portfolio of the work most indicative of academic achievements. Please refer to Secondary School Transcripts listed above for acceptable submissions.
If and when the State of Connecticut enacts laws or issues policies regarding home-schooled students or their admission to State licensed colleges and universities, this policy will be revised and reissued to ensure compliance with Connecticut State Regulations.
