Undergraduate Admissions Requirements

Main Campus Undergraduate Admissions Requirements

*Post University Main Campus allows applicants to enroll by providing an attestation confirming high school graduation or equivalent.   Prospective Main Campus students will receive provisional acceptance based on their high school cumulative grade point average.  Once high schools can provide transcripts, we will confirm the students’ acceptance and scholarship packages and adjust if necessary.  Official high school transcripts with proof of high school graduation are required for final acceptance to the University. 

Applicants seeking to apply for admissions to a Main Campus undergraduate program must provide a complete admissions application and proof of high school graduation or equivalent.  Post University strongly recommends an admissions interview.   

The following are examples of proof of high school graduation or equivalent:

  • *An official high school transcript with proof of graduation.
  • A copy of Graduate Equivalency Diploma (GED), including scores, or certificate issued by the State.
  • A copy of service members’ DD214 or Enlisted Records Brief (ERB), showing graduation from high school or equivalent.
  • A copy of service members’ Joint Services Transcript (JST), for applicants not applying for federal Title IV aid. Service members applying for federal Title IV aid must provide applicable proof of high school graduation, listed within these requirements.
  • An official home school transcript.
  • An official associate degree transcript.

One of the following forms of documentation is acceptable as proof of high school graduation or equivalent:

  • Official documentation of successful completion of at least 60 semester or trimester credit hours or 72 quarter credit hours that does not result in an associate degree, but is acceptable toward a bachelor’s degree at any institution.  
  • Official documentation of enrollment in a bachelor’s degree program with at least 60 semester or trimester hours or 72 quarter credit hours successfully completed, including credits transferred into the bachelor’s degree program.

An applicant whose transcript shows less than a 2.00 cumulative grade point average must submit a personal statement for review by the Provost. The Provost will determine if the applicant will be provisionally accepted. If the student is provisionally accepted, an academic plan will be provided and the student will need to meet the University’s SAP requirements. High school seniors in courses still in progress must provide current transcripts of work through the date of application.

*Under certain circumstances an unofficial transcript or alternative documentation is acceptable if the Chief Regulatory Officer approves it. Other forms of acceptable documentation include, but are not limited to, an unofficial high school transcript or an unofficial associate degree transcript.

Admissions Interview

We encourage applicants to visit the campus and meet with an Admissions Advisor in person. If a visit is not possible, the Admissions Advisor will schedule a telephone interview with the applicant.

Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or American College Testing (ACT) Submission

Post University recommends, but does not require, that freshman applicants submit the results of an official SAT or ACT test. 

Main Campus Honors Program Admissions Requirement

Admission to the Honors Program is highly selective. For consideration to the Honors Program, applicants must have a high school or college GPA of at least 3.25. In addition, applicants must complete the Honors Program Application and submit a short writing sample and provide two written recommendations from teachers, counselors, coaches, and/or employers.

English and Math Course Placement: Main Campus Students

English Course Placement

First year Main Campus students are asked to complete an English placement test prior to attending a summer registration day. Their achievement on the English placement test assesses whether students should be placed into either ENG 107: The Power of Words or ENG 110: College Writing. Students who do not take the English placement test will be automatically placed into ENG 107 during their first semester.

*Both ENG 107 and ENG 110 will count as three credit courses on a student’s degree plan.

Math Course Placement

First year Main Campus students are asked to complete a math placement exam prior to attending a summer registration day. Their achievement on the Math placement exam helps the math faculty identify the correct MAT course placement.

Admissions Decision Policy

The Office of Admissions makes every effort to notify candidates of their admission decision within three weeks after receiving a completed application with all supporting documents. In some cases, the Office of Admissions may defer making a final decision until it has received a report of the applicant’s high school midterm grades, or until a personal interview takes place. Applicants are asked to contact the Office of Admissions to determine the status of the application. 

Admission to Undergraduate Certificate Programs

Applicants to an undergraduate certificate program must meet and maintain the same admissions criteria appropriate to the program of study that grants the certificate.

Alternative Credit Options

Post University provides an opportunity for students to demonstrate college-level proficiency in certain subjects where learning has occurred in non-traditional ways, such as advanced placement courses, on-the-job training, standardized examinations, or work experience.
