For the purpose of this policy, a home-schooled student is defined 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. The applicant needs to submit transcripts from any accredited home-school program or from the Department of Education in the state in which the home-school program was completed.
However, not all states, including Connecticut, require or issue transcripts, a high school study plan, or a state secondary school credential. In the absence of such documents, the student must sit for and pass a GED federal or state high school equivalency exam. 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.
Home-schooled applicants are required to seek a personal interview with a Post University Admissions Counselor and complete an admissions essay. Home-school applicants denied admission to the University may appeal that decision to the Provost or designee.
The applicant must complete, sign and submit a Post University Transcript Request Form to authorize Post University’s Office of Admissions to request transcripts from any secondary school attended, 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.
