Freshmen Admissions

Post University is a small, but very diverse university and we encourage applications from students of all ethnic, religious, racial, economic and geographic backgrounds. Criteria for admission are objective as well as subjective. We consider an applicant's academic experience, standardized test scores, personal qualities, and individual characteristics. If you have any questions about applying to Post University, please feel free to call the admissions office at 1.800.345.2562 or email us at admissions@post.edu.

Application Procedure:

  1. Request an official application for admission from the Office of Admissions, complete the form, and return it to the Post University Admissions address provided below. A $25 non-refundable application fee must accompany the application. You may apply online, at no cost, by clicking here.

  2. Have an official copy of your high school transcript forwarded to the Office of Admissions by either:

    • Requesting your high school to submit your official transcript to the Office of Admissions or send them through Naviance Software if your high school has this software, or

    • Downloading the transcript request form to authorize Post University’s Office of Admissions to request your transcripts from your high school.
  3. The transcript must indicate that you have satisfactorily completed you high school’s graduation requirements.  If you have not yet completed your high school’s graduation requirements, the transcript must also include a list of courses being taken in the current semester.  Upon completion of your high school graduation requirements, you must provide a final official high school transcript that includes the date of graduation.

  4. Have the results of the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or American College Test (ACT) forwarded to the Office of Admissions. Our school code for the SAT is 3698 and the school code for the ACT is 0580.

  5. Submit at least one letter of recommendation.

  6. Visit our campus and meet with an Undergraduate Admissions Advisor in person, or schedule a phone interview if a visit is not possible.  The recommendation of an Undergraduate Admissions Advisor is necessary in order to gain final acceptance to the University.  Applicants may schedule a campus visit or phone interview by calling Admissions at 1.800.345.2562 or by filling out a campus visit form at www.Post.edu/visit.

If you have received a General Equivalency Diploma (GED) you must provide copies of the GED test results along with an official copy of course work completed at the high school level.

* Post University requires students who will be matriculating at the University to provide an official copy of their high school transcript with a posted graduation date or proof of successful completion of a GED program. An appropriate substitute for a high school transcript is proof of successful completion of a home schooling program. Students who are currently enrolled at a high school may submit a transcript, including currently enrolled courses for admissions purposes, but an official high school transcript with the graduation date must be provided to the University before matriculation.

Students applying to Post University must be enrolled in, or have successfully completed at least 16 credits, in a college preparatory program. High schools and GED accreditation must be recognized by a state, regional, or other accrediting agency that is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.

An official copy of a transcript is a transcript that is certified by the student’s high school with a signature and stamped with the school’s seal. The transcript must arrive in a sealed envelope from the student’s high school and must bear the student’s high school graduation date. Transcripts that are delivered without being in a sealed envelope by the high school will not be considered official.

Students who have attended accredited colleges and universities and have earned more than 30 credits at those institutions are required to present official transcripts for evaluation and are not required to provide a high school transcript.

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.
