Welcome Parent Eagles!

Welcome to the Post University Eagles family.  As we reflect on this past year, it is fair to say that we are all ready to return to some sense of normalcy, and in looking ahead to the upcoming academic year, we want you to know how delighted we are that your student will be joining us this fall.  Whether in person on campus or virtually, it’s a time of excitement, and perhaps some nervousness, as your child is about to embark on or continue their college journey.  These past 16 months have made us realize just how much promise, optimism, and energy all students bring to our campus community, and we are eagerly awaiting their arrival at the end of August. 

All students have received a message on the necessary steps they must complete.  This includes the following:

  1. Completing the housing application form for new/transfer students or returning students planning to live on campus and scheduling a move-in/check-in time when they return, which can be completed on the Orientation and Return to Campus page
  2. Completing checklist items for new/transfer students and returning students located through the attached links.
  3. Understanding and following vaccination requirements.
