Post-bachelor is an undergraduate status for students who have already completed a bachelor's degree and want to take classes without using the credit toward a graduate degree.  Students, who are required to complete undergraduate prerequisites prior to beginning a graduate program, may complete these courses as a post-bachelor student.  Additionally, certified teachers adding a subject area endorsement may elect to be in a post-bachelor status.

If you would like to apply to a graduate-level program including certificate programs, there is a unique application process that applies to you.
