Transfer Students

Students who have matriculated at an accredited college or university and have earned more than 12 credits at that institution are required to present official college transcripts for evaluation and are not required to provide a high school transcript.

High school transcripts are required unless the student has completed a two-year program which is acceptable toward a bachelor’s degree. If a student has a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher from an accredited two-year or four year educational institution, credits from courses with a grade of C or above may be transferred. No more than 75 credits can be accepted from a two-year college. If a student has earned an Associate’s or Bachelor’s degree from an accredited two-year or four-year educational institution, credits from courses with a grade of D or higher may be transferred.

Students who transfer to Post University with an Associate’s or Bachelor’s degree from an accredited two-year or four-year educational institution, must complete, sign and submit a Post University Transcript Request Form to authorize Post University’s Office of Admissions to request transcripts.

Post University evaluates potential transfer credits upon receipt of official transcripts. A student can get a head start on the evaluation process by submitting to Admissions unofficial transcripts of grades and credits for prior coursework, with a statement indicating where the student is in the application process.

The evaluation of transfer credits is a complicated and critical institutional function; one that we address with concern for our students and those who wish to join the Post community. Evaluation is done with careful consideration of the regulatory standards that govern the evaluation and acceptance of such credits.

Accordingly, the University has had a long-standing practice of accepting credits only from legitimately accredited academic institutions. As the U.S. Department of Education (ED) is the ultimate authority on accreditation, Post University will adhere to ED practices in recognizing which American institutions are ‘legitimately accredited’. Any academic credits awarded by any American academic institution recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as accredited will be eligible for transfer where applicable to the desired program of study.

The easily accessible U.S. Department of Education Database of Accredited Post Secondary Institutions and Programs at a http://ope.ed.gov/accreditation provides a list of accredited American institutions. Please refer to that database when determining academic accreditation.

Post University is proud to support our military service members, veterans, and dependents in the pursuit of their college education. Post University has been recognized as a Military Friendly School for the past six consecutive years, and is a proud member of the Service members Opportunity Colleges (SOC) and the Degree Network System(SOCDNS). Post University also is honored to be a signatory to the Department of Defense Memorandum of Understanding (DoDMOU) and fully supports Presidential Executive Order13607establishing the Principles of Excellence. The University is in compliance with the GI Bill Compliance Act, and is a member of the American Council on Education (ACE). As such, in accordance with the requirements of the DoD MOU and the SOC DNS, Post University follows the recommendations of ACE in the transfer of credit for military training and experience, and other nationally recognized professional training in subject areas taught by the University. For our military program students this means a maximum of 90 transfer credits for a baccalaureate degree or 45 transfer credits for an associate degree may be applied based on a review of a military program student's Joint Service Transcript (JST).
