Department of Education and will evaluate the students that are not able to produce documentation. Post University relies on the students’ attestation of high school completion and will not mandate a separate document for all students. However, those students who do not produce a proof of graduation will be subject to a provisional acceptance until academic readiness is able to be assessed. Students who are provisionally accepted will not receive financial aid disbursements until their proof of graduation has been received or their academic readiness has been assessed.

The average age of the online student is 34-37 years of age. High school transcripts that are 20 years old are not an indicator of failure or success.
