Please read the sticky about PMing questions, people....
You don't need a post-secondary education, but it won't hurt to have one. The most important kind of education to have, is eduction in life (ie. life experience). One of the guys in my troop was in university for 1 semester before he was sent to Depot, one of the guys I work with didn't do any post-secondary. A few "older" guys I know in other detachments don't have any post-secondary either.
If you're going to be applying for a college as well as the RCMP, I'd take a second and figure out which one I wanted to do. The timeline for the RCMP application process might not work out so well with any scholarly timeline requirements. Also, the financial aspect of signing up for courses, getting through a few weeks of them and then getting called out to Depot didn't really attract me enough to finish up and get that piece of paper.
