Post University Online Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (66)
I am very unhappy with Post University, with 6 credits left before Graduation, and looking int Masters programs at other . universities, I found out that Post is only Nationally Accredited for the business school, all other degree programs are regional, meaning no Masters programs will accept the B.A degree of psychology, and almost all careers only accept a Bachelor from NATIONALLY accredited schools, now 6 credits away, and over the lifetime maximum for financial aid, The last 3 and a half years are a total waste, no degree and no way to transfer, or with a degree, no masters programs outside if the East Coast area. THE FINANCIAL AID department sucks, the academic advising is a joke, and none communicate with you until you approach them with a problem, then its too late to be fixed,...DO NOT ATTEND POST unless you want to waste time and money on a degree you cant use.
I graduate with a B.S in Business in 2011 from Post and a Masters in 2014. I cannot get a job interview. I get calls from "Sales" insurance jobs about my resume. I have not had one good job i.e(Morgan Stanley,Chase) contact me about my resume. I think it is just a matter of prestige. This school does not have the national respect. If you already have a job and are looking to promote, then the online degree is good. However, if you are looking for work from scratch, this degree is not worth it. I have $76,000 in student debt and a construction job. I hope this helps. Basically, I have a degree and owe a lot of money, without the benefits.
My experience at Post University was a positive one. My program advisor was courteous and extremely helpful. I did not experience any administrative issues. Like any school, you have great teachers and a few mediocre. I found the business degree program to be comprehensive and well structured. If you are interested in a short-cut education, Post is not the college to attend. They are strict about writing format compliance, citation rules, and use proper grammar. Again, some professors are stricter than others, but I found most of them to be fair. If anything, I think the University should be stricter on student admission. Some students did not belong in the program as they often procrastinated and presented sloppy work. If you are willing to put in the work and are willing to learn, Post University is a very good option.
This school is the most unprofessional and unorganized institution I have ever attended. The financial aid planners are thieves and most of all the staff members steal from the students. The teachers do not actually teach anything but give links to youtube and outdated materials and charged you all this money for outdated material no companies will ever take a degree from this college serious. Please, everyone, make sure to research before you attend because they will lie and steal your money.
Post is for military personal and ppl obtaining simple degrees I've noticed. Staff is unorganized and financial department is rude and untrustworthy My mistake for joining post even though I was enrolled when I SAID wait...to each it's own. As for me I'm taking this all the way I have a lawyer and will be reporting post to BBB and the news. They are stealing your money. Classes I'm paying for I'm already certified in..most of my assignments are YouTube bound really? YouTube and you're paying for this. I can never get in contact with anyone and to top it off they enrolled me w/o my financial aid then a woman called me a month into school saying" it's collections" lol Oh she played herself. When I brought it up with the advisors they didn't know what I was talking about. I can go on all day, but instead I'll go my own way. I have the opportunity to be successful w/o a degree and also had the opportunity for college to be paid for me and now look. I have excellent credit and Post will not ruin what I've worked hard for. They don't care about you, just the green. I had good teachers and actually am a great student. I had one or two overall sarcastic teachers, but I don't have time to bicker through technology. Post is a scam. You look into it and you'll see. Classes are useless. I've gotten charged for materials I've never used. I was also told that Post doesn't give you laptops bc you get the choice to purchase your own so it won't come out your financial aid LIES POST stole from me and the government and they'll figure out who they had in their class. No worries, some are happy here; if I was almost done I would stick it out, but it's been five months of back and forth b.s. I wanted to drop classes and was told it was too late LIES I'll be going to a school in my community. I need to be able to walk in and see what's happening. Over the phone ppl do as they please and when you get upset, they hang up. Post is no good! You're only saving $10 for class if you don't do the course by credits...look at that...$90 for books I never read $50 for outlook which I already have. That's my professional account. You guys do your research, dig deeper into it, ask the right questions and go with your gut. My gut told me to wait, Post staff enrolled me anyway for that quota baby. Good luck in your careers
For me, Post University was excellent. I've read just every review on here and found many of them to be a bit extreme, especially the negative ones. One's experience here is what one makes of it, like most everything else in life. Challenges and issues may arise, but to succumb to them and blame the university brings zero results. I've ran into a few minor issues myself, including financial aid trouble, and was able to get everything sorted out with no problems. For a few, especially dependent on their circumstances, I suppose might (could be) more challenging. Whatever the case, not a knock against the university. The classes are within reasonable cost and run 8 weeks! 8 weeks, people! That's fairly quick, considering. In most classes, especially the upper level ones, there tends to be quite a bit of work required..., but, is anything else expected? It's truly not that difficult, especially since the material for each class is being put out, absorbed, and regurgitated within an 8 week timeframe. I've only had two classes where the instructors weren't so great or, at least didn't seem so. They weren't very active not were they very interactive. I read a syllabus and each weekly assignment instructions and did what was required. Little feedback was provided. Even in these two classes, I learned a great deal. Granted, I probably would've learned more with more instruction and leadership from those professors, but it's complete. Online learning anywhere requires a lot of discipline and determination to succeed. Here is no different. You get what you put in. Post University is a reasonably priced and easy to work with and learn from online university. Easy doesn't mean without standards. They have standards and requirements. Be disciplined and determined enough to meet and achieve them and you will successfully earn whatever degree you're going for. I hope this helps. Good luck to you all in your educational pursuits, even if it's not with Post University!
This overall was a great experience. There were a few issues with online text books so whenever possible obtain physical textbooks. Staff is knowledgeable and helpful however I have had a few times where I couldn't access the online textbooks and no one seemed to know how to resolve it but within a day or two the problem would be resolved and they called me to tell me they fixed the issue. Other then online textbook issues it was great experience. If you do FAFSA they may take out the loan as well so be weary if they do this as they did my loan first and not my grant.
I loved this college. I went here for 3 years online. I had transferred a lot of credits from another college and it was a breeze. My financial aid person was very friendly and helpful, as well as my academic advisor. They always got back to me within a reasonable time, usually the same day. Most of the instructors for the courses were engaged with the class discussions. Most also got back to you within 24 hours about emails that you had sent. There were one or two instructors that could have improved in their teaching, but I don't think any school is perfect. I will say that any student needs to be dedicated in order to be an online student, as I had due dates for assignments, just like a college campus that a student would attend. To clarify, I only gave one star for the career services because I only remember websites that I could have visited for help in a career, so I think that this area could be improved. I have not gotten a job in my field yet, but I need my Master's, which I am pursuing in the fall at another online college. If I could, I would attend Post for my Master's, but the program I want is not at Post yet.
This online school is a scam! They just want your money! Obviously, every school wants your money, but they steal your tuition money and your loan money! If you go here, check each statement and call if there are any discrepancies be a useful they seriously are screwing people put of thousands of dollars of loan money! My bills don't show where any of my credit went from the previous month, but on the next bill, there is a huge Chunk of it missing and the previous Bill had already accounted for that class period. There is a lot of money on my bills unaccounted for- eventhough it shows SOME of the money went back to the financial institution, it was a small amount and I am missing a very large amount! Thankfully, I am sitting at a zero balance, but everything with this school has been so sketch from the very beginning! I have so many individual advisors. Enrollment advisor, academic advisor, financial advisor. And sometimes, I have gotten an email from 2 people both saying they are my academic adviser but then one tells me they aren't and they will have to find out for me. This whole school has been a drain and a cluster.
This school is very military friendly school. I am a current student at Post actively pursuing a B.S. in Business Administration. The only issue that I have had thus far is the processing of financial aid. I am a self starter and tend not to need much assistance so I will not be able to gage how well the school does with those things. There seems to be several resources available. I have been contacted by my instructors on occasion who has offered assistance when I have received a poor grade. I have noticed a lot of good reviews for business admin students and not so good reviews for other degree programs. The school may need to use more of the business school principles (Baldrige Principles) for each degree program and as operational guidelines for the organization as a whole.
