Translations and evaluations must be obtained by the student at their own expense and verified by the educational institution in the home country or a U.S. Academic credential evaluation agency.

F-1 Visa Requirements
Upon admittance and certification of financial support, Post University will issue a Form I-20/Certificate of Eligibility, which the international student needs in order to apply for a United States F-1 student visa. Post University is enrolled in the DHS Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) for electronic tracking of international students. Please note that applicants must pay the SEVIS I-901 fee and the DS-160 visa insurance fee to DHS prior to applying for a visa. The process of applying for and receiving an F-1 visa varies from country to country and may take as long as three months.
The issuance of a Form I-20 and F-1 student visa constitutes a legal agreement with the United States. According to DHS, the definition of an F-1 student is a non-immigrant who is pursuing a full course of study towards a specific educational or professional objective at an academic institution in the United States. Once the educational or professional objectives have been attained, the F-1 student is expected by the United States to return to his or her residence abroad. The F-1 student agrees to:
Maintain full-time enrollment at all times except during the summer vacation period. Full-time enrollment is a minimum of 12 credits per semester.
Follow the proper procedures with an assigned advisor to: transfer schools, change educational levels and/or majors, or extend his or her program.
Engage in employment in the United States only with the express authorization of a designated school official (DSO).
Report all changes in status, including address, within 10 days to Main Campus Admissions.
