Post-Baccalaureate Students

If you will have a completed bachelor's degree before you enter SPU, you will be considered a post-baccalaureate student. As a post-baccalaureate student, you will find an enriching and challenging learning community at SPU.

All applicants, post-bac applicants included, apply to SPU using the Common Application online. It’s quick, easy, and secure.  

Application requirements:

  • Common Application (Make sure you fill out the SPU member section and writing supplement.)
  • Official college transcripts* from each college attended and the final transcript from the institution that granted the baccalaureate degree, showing the granted degree.
  • $50 application fee.

You do not need to submit a Secondary School Report (a document completed by your high school counselor).

If you are a nursing student, you must provide additional application materials. Get all the details on what’s required from the School of Health Sciences.

Please note that merit scholarships are only available to students who have not yet completed a bachelor's degree.
