TRANSFERRING CREDITS INTO POST UNIVERSITY

We look forward to welcoming you to our small, close-knit New England campus where everybody really does know your name!

At Post University, we have a flexible credit transfer policy that allows you to:

  • Transfer in up to 90 credits, earned at an accredited institution, toward your bachelor’s degree program
  • Receive college credits for Military training and life experience*
  • Receive credits for DANTES and CLEP

*To learn more about our Military Program, which is specially designed to meet the needs of active duty, veterans and military dependents, click here.

We will prepare a credit transfer evaluation at NO CHARGE and usually within 48 hours.

To transfer to Post University, simply complete the steps below:

  1. Complete and return an application for admission along with a $25 non-refundable application fee. You may also apply online. If you submit an application online, the fee is waived.
  2. Arrange to have your official transcript(s) sent to the Office of Admission from all colleges and universities previously attended, regardless of whether credit has been earned.

If you have earned less than 30 college credits:

  1. Please send an official copy of your high school transcript to the Post University Office of Admissions. We do not require your high school transcript if you have earned more than 30 college credits. Download the Transcript Request Form.
  2. 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.
  3. Submit your scores from the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or the American College Test (ACT). If you have not taken the SAT or ACT, please arrange to do so. Post University's school code for the SAT is 3698. The code for the ACT is 0580. You do not have to submit these scores if you have more than 30 college credits.
  4. Schedule a personal interview with an admissions officer. A phone interview or a meeting with a University representative may be substituted when an on-campus visit isn't possible.

Transfer Credit Policy

Post University will accept transfer credit from other institutions if:

  • The institution where the credit was earned is a regionally-accredited college or university or a nationally-accredited degree-awarding institution.

Undergraduate students may transfer:

  • Up to 90 credits from a four-year institution towards a Bachelor’s degree and up to 45 credits towards an Associate degree.
  • Up to 75 credits from a two-year institution towards a Bachelor’s degree and up to 45 credits towards an Associate degree.
  • Students who wish to transfer in individual courses (i.e., those not earned as part of a conferred degree) must have earned a grade of “C” or better in each course they wish to transfer. Students who are transferring courses from within an already-earned degree may transfer credit for courses with a grade of “D” or better.
  • In order for transfer credit to be posted to the student’s academic record at Post University, the student must provide an official transcript from the institution where the credits were earned. If transfer credit is accepted, it will not affect the student’s Post University cumulative GPA. The course(s) will appear on the student’s academic record but the grade(s) will not.
  • As is true for all accredited institutions, Post University reserves the right to award or withhold credit based on University standards and curriculum requirements. If you have any questions regarding transferring credits or Post University’s credit policy, please contact the Office of Admissions at 203.596.4555 or email admissions@post.edu.

We look forward to welcoming you to campus soon!
