"This so called university is absolutely the worst! Any academic institution that has a rate of 97% accepts anyone, and with only an 8% graduation rate, this means that they do NOTHING to support their students and their needs! This university is an embarassment to those colleges and universities that are doing the RIGHT thing for their students. The faculty, RA's, directors, and dean in my experience are there to support the dominant culture and if you fall outside of what they consider appropriate or acceptable they will stop at no cost to ensure you are removed. Equity, social justice and fairness is severly lacking at the core of this so called academic institution. Think long and hard about spending your hard earned money here, because there are other institutions that are worth the investment! You are warned."

"This school is the worst I've ever seen. I still haven't received my financial aid when it says it's in my account. Every time I call to get about it, no one can help me. I seriously think this school has a fraud problem. I don't know what to do. My fiancé goes to the college here in our town, and she didn't have no problems getting her financial aid. I don't know what is up with this school, but I will find out. I'm switching schools for the spring term."

"Overall, my experience at Post University over the last four years has been great. Despite being a commuter, I still feel like I am part of the Post community. There were plenty of clubs to join and events on campus, such as movies being shown in the Eagles Nest over the weekend for free. My professors were knowledgable and passionate about the field of education. I do not have an opinion about the cafeteria food as I have only eaten there a few times. My concerns pertain to the departments as communication between them is lackluster, particularly with Financial Aid as they never answer phone calls or emails. The best way to speak to them is in person, although I understand that many online students may not be able to do so and it can be troublesome. I am also extremely disappointed in Post's Admissions department as they neglected to tell me that Post's degrees do not lead to teaching certification through state schools (the typical route for those looking to teach in public schools). I found out the hard way during my junior year, after three years of hard work. If I had known this when first looking at schools as a high school senior, I would not have chosen this university. Fortunately, I have found a university that will not send me into debt or force me to take classes that I already took because Post's are not "up to CT's standards" and waste my time. If you are thinking about applying to Post University, I strongly advise that you learn to advocate for yourself and do not be afraid to "nag" someone for pertinent information. Also, ask questions and thoroughly research their programs to make sure that you will be receiving whatever credentials you need in your future career."

"I just graduated from Post with my BS in August. My experience with the professors was incredible, knowledgeable. I felt coming straight from a community college with my AA that the school was the real deal. The classes were engaging, expectations for the workload, and criteria were on point. Overall when I left, I knew I was prepared to jumpstart and utilize my new founded education as I could comprehend and keep up with colleagues and spaces from the Universities throughout the state of California. However my entire experience with my financial advisor left a bad taste in my mouth. In my last two classes I noticed a balance left for fees after my student loan. First, I had to email him a few times over several weeks to get a response. When I finally got a response after forwarding my email over and over, I asked why there was a balance? My financial advisor simply stated, “you should have enough for your remaining courses. Huh? If he is my financial advisor why does he not know that I am in my last two classes? Days later just days from “graduating” he says I owe the school! I don’t have enough to cover, and I will not be allowed my transcripts until I pay in full. I expected a financial advisor to tell me that I am paying for my last classes as that may have been taken care of before graduation. Now my feelings have changed for Post because I cannot apply to graduate schools until this balance is paid. I am a dedicated student with goals, and because I was not appropriately explained my finances (even after asking), my plans have been detoured. The for-profit schools do not care about you they just want the money. I am writing this review, so this does not happen to anyone else. Do not get comfortable with all the fancy titles; the action does not align with the mission. I wished I would have listed and gone to a California State University that I had already been accepted. Best of luck"

"I love Post. Everyone here is super nice, professors are super helpful, and I learned a lot in my classes. I'm kind of sad to graduate, I never want to leave!! These past 4 years have been the best of my life. Post has helped me become a better person with better values, and that's a fact."

"Post University is outstanding. Do not believe the reviews that say other wise. From the moment I applied at Post University. and in each class I have taken they have gone above and beyond. Financial aid is amazing too! My guess is that anyone that complains about that didn't complete the forms that financial aid requests. They tell you from the beginning that in order to complete your financial aid the forms need to be completed asap. Plus if your failing your classes obviously the government isn't going to pay for your classes. If you want to be successful and graduate you can. Post provided me with the tools I needed to be successful."

"Post Computer Information Systems program is the worst because there is no CIS courses offer programming, databases, nor even simple Web application. All they have bounce of links and readings, nothing else. The department chair does not even know a simple HTML code. I am so lucking to transfer to a different school. I would not recommend anyone seeking for a CIS degree at Post University and build up loans and never be able to pay back"

"Great school for comtinuing education. I had the money for classes so I did not deal with finance dept. These classes are fast paced so you need to read all of your course work and study all of the material that the professors provide so you do not get lost or behind. I ended with a 3.5 GPA"

"Have been attending Post for about a year now and never had an issue. Yes advisors switch all of the time, YES it's expensive. Personally, I enjoyed it. Would recommend someone to go somewhere else to be honest. Nothing special. I have gotten lucky with the professors. Remember this is a private FOR-PROFIT school. Do your research before you apply. Can never go wrong going to a state University"

"STAY AWAY AT ALL COSTS!!!! This school is an absolute joke, and the people that work here are even more so of a joke. I switched out of UConn to come here because I was told it would save me "thousands" NOPE. I ended up spending more in a year at Post taking online classes than I did at UConn. My first issue is the fact that the academic advisors change literally every month. In the time I've been at Post, I've had 3. My first academic advisor told me they would choose my first 3 classes for me, ok no problem. After she registered me, I kept getting emails from the instructor stating they would "see us Monday". After an hour of research, I realized it was because this class was on campus, NOT online. When I got in contact with my academic counselor, she said "well classes start next week and you are past the drop period, is it going to be an issue to get to class?" Yes lady, because I work and this is why I took a STRICT online course load. She told me there was nothing she can do even though this was her mistake. I chalked it up and worked out something with my employer and was able to get to class. Second, Post online is EXPENSIVE and the financial advisors don't know what they are doing either. They send you letters you need to approve or accept, then they go ghost. They don't help you with loans, they don't help you with different options to pay for school, nothing. You can never get ahold of anybody and they just hide behind titles and computers. The last straw with them was when I was in classes and was leaving to go to the military. The military needed my transcripts and to my surprise when I went to request them (which cost $10) I was on hold. I called and asked why and they said I had a balance of $1650 from FOUR months ago!!! If I had a balance, why did you allow me to register for classes. The "MODS" are a joke and are so scattered you don't understand what you're paying for, what covers what etc. Because it's an accelerated course (or so they say) you can only use so much financial aid so you're stuck taking maybe 2 classes every 8 weeks. When I sat down and did the math, my degree was taking me the same amount of time as if I was still at UConn, there was nothing "accelerated" about it. When I contacted them about my balance, it took somebody 2 weeks and me giving them an attitude to help me. I had to basically do their job for them. For being a "yellow ribbon" (military acceptable) college, they treat their students like absolute garbage. Also, the campus is a dump and the classes are dingy. I would never recommend this school, and the minute my balance is paid off I'm running far away from this school."

"I have has nothing but success with Post University. The academic advisors are extremely friendly and the Professors are very easy to work with. I have never had a single issue with the school or its staff and if I did they were quick to rectify the issue. The classes are extremely well put together and I enjoyed my 3 years there."

"Horrible school. Academics are a joke. Amateurs run the school. Cant answer questions, never answer phone calls and advisers have no idea what they are doing. If you try to complain forget it, it just falls on deaf ears. Sports are an even bigger joke. New Football coach has been coaching for all of 2 years at ant level. You would get a more experienced coach in POP Warner. Assistant coaches are even worse. Expensive If you live there and the place has nothing to do and ;looks like a medical building. NO college atmosphere at all. Stay away at all cost."

"I am very frustrated at the process this school has in place. First I was told that I finished the Forensic accounting program then I was told I had one more class. No one ever answers the phone and you never get a straight answer from anyone. I was told that I owe $750.00 for a class I took. I know for a fact my student loans covered the cost. I have been trying to reach the Financial Aid Advisor for the past two weeks now."

"I am revising my initial review of Post University. I started graduate school at Post University and I am very disappointed with the professionalism of the school. The professor/instructors like to hid behind their titles (i.e. doctor/PhD) and think that matters in some way. The school is for profit. The instructors think they can grade any way they want. The course requirements and Rubrics state what is graded and how the curriculum is graded. The instructors like to disregard the Rubrics and grade on their own accord. The Human Services department has a buddy system in their department starting with K. B. . If this school and its instructors keep playing with my grades, they will regret it all the way to the Department of Education. I will drag Dr. M.  through it too. Reviews matter as well. I will probably revise this posting at some point and start name dropping some people. BTW, the Post U bookstore opened August 8, 2016. Classes began on August 29, 2016, but did not load the required books for the class until August 30, 2016."

"I was a on campus student at Post University for four years, as a student athlete. I played four years on the women's basketball team in which we continued to grow as a team each year, continuously getting better each year. With Post being a rather small school, it was as though everyone was involved and supported each other with everything. The campus life was a great experience for the reason for the fact that you weren't running into new people everyday. The campus size was also a great thing when it came to the classroom, the teachers were able to help and focus on a small group of students opposed to a large class with several students in it. Overall, my experience with Post was great and I would recommend the university to anyone looking to get a degree."

"I have been going to Post since 2012 to get my B.S. in Accounting and have been very happy with the whole experience. When looking at schools, they were the only school that didn't pressure me into anything, answered all my questions, and took care of my transcripts and financial aid within just a few weeks so I was able to start right away. Anytime I needed help with financial aid or my classes, I always received answers back usually right away by email or phone if necessary. They were very easy to work with and the classes have been great. I never would have been able to go back to school without doing it online and I've had a great experience. Another girl at my work started at Post last year because of the experience I had. It does cost more than a traditional college but you're paying for the convenience and I compared other online schools and they are pretty much all in the same ballpark. I love the 8-week courses and I've had mostly all good experiences with teachers and most are very understanding and they try to make sure you get the most of the class that they can. I totally recommend it and I've told many people about your school and how much I like it."

"You are so correct about the disorganization of Post University and oh boy are you correct about their unprofessional academic advisors. I had a pretty scary health issue and had to have surgery in the middle of the mod and because of complications I got sick and wasn't able to fully participate in my courses. These complications occurred during my attempt to complete my first 12 credit hours. After exhaustingly trying to contact and connect with my very rude instructors I was failed. I then received an email that I was being warned that I could be dismissed but when I called my idiotic academic advisor/counselor he said that I was already dismissed. After viewing the attached documents in the email about the warning I noticed that it said Post University is required to notify students of warnings and dismissals by means of email AND certified mail first. I never got any certified letter from Post stating I was being warned or dismissed. I would know if I had received a certified letter being as though that I would have had to sign for a letter of the sort. PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THIS POOR EXCUSE OF A COLLEGE! Once they get you to apply and register and get their money then they show their true colors about how little they care about their students. Also I hate to say it but in my opinion not only the staff but the professors seem racially biased as well. One of the biggest mistakes I could have made was attending this piss-poor school when I had much more obviously better options out there."

"I hate or practically hate this school for scamming me out of $1650! I was enrolled in 1 class for only a week and a day or two and I was told that I had a balance due of $1650 for only 1 class and only being enrolled for 1 week and a day! I barely just found out that someone on this same review site only paid $1565 for each class. These people scammed me as well as deceived me into enrolling into their ridiculous school. I would never recommend this school for anyone who doesn't have this kind of money to pay for a class that u were only enrolled in for a week worse choice of my life!"
