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

An applicant whose transcript shows less than a 2.00 cumulative grade point average must submit a personal statement for review by the Provost. 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.
We encourage applicants to visit the campus and meet with an Admissions Representative in person. If a visit 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. However, athletes planning to participate in a NCAA Division I or II athletic program must to submit SAT or ACT test scores.
Main Campus Honors Program Admissions Requirement
Admission to the Honors Program is highly selective. To be considered for 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 (i.e., submit a short writing sample and provide two written recommendations from teachers, counselors, coaches, and/or employers, etc.).
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.
Former Post University students who have been absent for one or more years and who now wish to continue their studies must apply for readmission by filing an Application for Admission with the Admissions Office. Former Post University students who have been away from the University for more than two years will also be required to fulfill the degree requirements of their selected major as stated in the current catalog. If, for any reason, the University dismissed a student, the Admissions Committee will review the application for readmission, and the applicant may be required to submit an appeal form and documentation.
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.
