Home Schooled Student Admissions
Post University welcomes applications from home-schooled students wishing to pursue further education. We recognize the important contributions home-schooled students make, both in the classroom and in student life. If you are a student who has been home-schooled and are interested in admission to Post University, you should submit the following:
For the purpose of this policy, a home-schooled student is defined as someone who has completed a secondary school education in a home school setting that is treated as a home school or private school under state law.
Home schooled students who have completed a home based secondary education and are at least 18 years of age are eligible for admission to Post University and Post University's Accelerated Degree Program upon satisfaction of all the University's standard admission requirements. The applicant should submit transcripts from any secondary school attended, a high school study plan signed by the parent of provider of the home schooling, and a state secondary completion credential if such documents exist.
However, not all states, including Connecticut, require or issue transcripts, a high school study plan, or a state secondary school credential. In the absence of such documents, the student must sit for and pass a GED federal or state high school equivalency exam.
Home school applicants are required to seek a personal interview with a Post University admissions counselor. Home school applicants denied admission to the University may appeal that decision to the Provost or his designee.
If and when the State of Connecticut enacts laws or issues policies regarding home-schooled students or their admission to State licensed colleges and universities, this policy will be revised and reissued to ensure compliance with Connecticut State Regulations.

Post University subscribes to a rolling admissions policy. The Office of Admissions makes every effort to notify candidates of their admission decision approximately three weeks after receiving a completed application. In some cases, the Admissions Committee may defer making a final decision until it has received a report of the candidate's midterm grades or until a personal interview takes place. If you have not heard back from us within three weeks, feel free to contact the Admissions office to check the status of your application.
Post University has a rolling admissions policy and likewise, a rolling deposit policy.

All students who want to attend Post University in the Fall must let us know by May 1st.
