Begin accepting online POST Entrance Eam sign-ups for the Spring 2020 147th Extended Academy and 148th Intensive Academy.  CA POST only allows for one test every 30 days, so please select only one test session below unless it's after the 30 day time period.  (Test results from other agencies may be accepted if less than one year old from the day the academy begins and are on agency letterhead).  To sign-up for one of our exams, please click on the exam date you wish to attend so you can purchase a $10.00 ticket on the Eventbrite website.  After you've purchased your ticket, you must go online on the COS website (www.cos.edu/apply​) and apply for the Fall 2019 semester.
