Post University Transfer Admissions
Students who have matriculated at an accredited college or university and have earned more than 12 credits at that institution are required to present official transcripts for evaluation and are not required to provide a high school transcript.
If you have a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or higher from an accredited two-year or four-year educational institution, credits from courses with a grade of C or above may be transferred. No more than 75 credits can be accepted from a two-year college.
Official high school or college transcripts should be submitted directly to Admissions. You may authorize Post University to obtain these transcripts on your behalf by downloading the Transcript Request form at:
http://www.post.edu/transcriptand either faxing it to Admissions at 203.765.5810 or mailing it to:

Use one form for each institution you'd like us to contact on your behalf in order to obtain your official transcripts. Post University evaluates potential transfer credits upon receipt of official transcripts. You can get a head start on the evaluation process by submitting unofficial transcripts of grades and credits for prior coursework to Admissions, with a statement indicating where you are in the application process.
To complete the application for admission, please visit https://go.post.edu/adpapp/index.aspx.
Official Transcripts which are sent electronically from another institution will be accepted on a case-by-case basis. All electronic official transcripts must be sent by the institution directly or by an organization contracted with that institution to send transcripts in a secure manner over the Internet.
The evaluation of transfer credits is a complicated and critical institutional function --one that each of us must address with concern for our students and those who wish to join the Post community, and with careful consideration of the regulatory standards that govern the evaluation and acceptance of such credits.
Accordingly, the University has had a long-standing practice of accepting credits only from legitimately-accredited academic institutions. Historically, determining what constitutes a 'legitimately accredited college or university' has presented some confusion.
Accordingly, as the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) is the ultimate authority on accreditation, Post University will adhere to DOE practices in recognizing which American institutions are 'legitimately accredited'.
Any American academic institution recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as accredited for the purpose of granting Associate, Bachelor's or Master's Degrees, is accredited. Any academic credits awarded by that institution are legitimate academic credits and are eligible for transfer into Post University if applicable to the desired program of study.
The easily accessible U.S. Department of Education Data Base of Accredited Post Secondary Institutions and Programs at http://www.ope.ed.gov/accreditation/provides a list of accredited American institutions. Please refer to that database when determining academic accreditation.
In addition, Post University is proud to support our military service members, veterans, and dependents in the pursuit of their college education. Post University has been recognized as a Military Friendly School for the past four consecutive years, and is a proud member of the Service members Opportunity Colleges Consortium (SOC) and the SOC Degree Network System (SOC DNS). Post University also is honored to be a signatory to the Department of Defense Memorandum of Understanding (DoD MOU) and fully supports Presidential Executive Order 13607 establishing the "Principles of Excellence". The University is in compliance with the GI Bill Compliance Act, and is a member of the American Council on Education (ACE). As such, in accordance with the requirements of the DoD MOU and the SOC DNS, Post University follows the recommendations of ACE in the transfer of credit for military training and experience, and other nationally-recognized professional training in subject areas taught by the University. For our military program students this means a maximum of 90 transfer credits for a baccalaureate degree or 45 transfer credits for an associate degree may be applied based on a review of a military program student's Joint Service Transcript (JST).
