"The finance department hold your money for weeks and months and won’t give you a definite date to receive it. The communication is terrible across the board and classes are too expensive for what is offered. I wouldn’t refer this school to ANYONE! Waste"

"I have had official transcripts sent twice to the school. Even though I get email verification that they have arrived, they act like they never did. I can't get the finance dept to send me an email to set up my Bank Mobile to get refunds. The instructors that aren't professors are there just to pass time. They are barely active in the class. I have a hard time even responding to discussion boards because the number of students in the class are illiterate clowns that can't follow instructions."

"It's simply just so disorganized. I've seen more organization at my son's first tee ball game. The advisors for financial aid will tell you what they think you want to hear rather than factual information. The academic took me going to the dean to get anywhere. After speaking with the dean and him knowing my intentions he suggested another degree and different courses. This never took place till I made threats of a civil suit and calling Better Business. The courses are simply reading a ton and then writing a paper. The discussion boards are where you submit this work and you then tell each other good job. When asking for clarification from professors on asssignments they copy and paste the original assignment. Mind you this was in five seperate courses, not one. There is nothing but hurdle after hurdle and if you are looking to go online make sure to review more about the experience. The physical college itself has great reviews on several sites. The online are very different. check into the graduation rate and transfer rates of this college online. I am finishing my this term and transferring myself after this experience and giving them more than one opportunity to make a difference. They are very helpful and call frequently while getting you enrolled and your financial aid set up....once they received the money it just stopped. It's sad especially after speaking with fellow students that are dealing with the same issue."

"This is a horrible school. Such a scam. I went there to get a degree but I failed a few classes because the professors had a horrible way of grading and they did not even help and because of that I was kicked out of the school I wanted to go to. I reached out to the academic advisor to see if I was allowed to come back in order to get into the school I wanted and I never heard back from her. I am so angry."

"I have encountered many people who are supposed to help you along the journey and to assist you with making sure you succeed. Jennifer Oquendo, was the only person of contact that made my consideration for this institution worth pursuing, NOBODY ELSE. No other advisors not the professor was of any help. I began August 29, 2022 and this is the WORST experience by far. I would NEVER recommend anyone to this university."

"I feel that this University is simply selling degrees. I have had some wonderful professors, but there is very little support. I am on my third academic advisor in two years. When I called to rearrange my class schedule the changes were never made. I enrolled because of my employer discount bit it is rarely applied, even after multiple calls to correct the issue. My financial advisor is impossible to get a hold of and when I do she is dismissive. After 6 months of back and forth she claimed to have fixed the issue but nothing was done. I will be looking for another institution for my Batchelor's. It is a shame, because the online format fits my schedule but the lack of support is a deal breaker."

"High priced, misleading, too expensive, no way for moderate-income or retired person to survive. I am going back to community college in 8 weeks! You teach yourself, no instruction , do these discussion boards , its just away to run up your debt. Please be wiser than I"

"This college is a joke! They are doing horrible financially, so they have you repeat classes, tell you your transcripts aren't official when they are and are all around scamming money from students. Please go somewhere else! They are by far charging more than they should be by scamming students. Its unfortunate because their online set up and professors are absolutely amazing. However I think that their graduation rate is at an all time low because of the horrible academic advisors, financial aid advisors, and the fact that they say they are always here for you, but they can't answer a question or call you back."

"the cost of the school is very unnecessary I also feel like the school is a scam. the financial aid department has messed payments up plenty of times and the costing is never correct also they don't give tuition discounts from family jobs anymore making the costs even more expensive. Also living on campus the food is never good and the rooms are old and the bathrooms aren't cleaned properly. the cost of room and board is 12,000. and it's absolutely not worth it. I do not recommend this university to anyone graduation rate is also extremely low."

"Absolutely horrible, chose the university because the lower tuition rate made sense. Professors are lazy, they teach NOTHING but expect perfection, have never seen a professor over a zoom call even, they don’t lecture and are slow to respond to emails if you have a question. The school is an absolute joke, no support from advisors, but really can’t think of a positive thing to say about this place, I just can’t wait to be done. Don’t make the same mistake I made, pursue your higher education somewhere else."

"I graduated in 2010 after completing a BS in Legal Studies. With the exception of one class/professor, my academic experience was great. Teachers were there to assist anytime I needed it. The only issue was with a professor of political philosophy….let’s just say we didn’t have the same philosophy and my grades show. Since returning to school as an adult and completing the BS and later a masters (at Salve Regina), I have had a 3.8 gpa. This one class I had a D- . The only real issue that I would say Post needs to fix is the financial aid office. Like many of the other reviews, it needs work. Everything worked out, it was just a struggle. One example I can give was that I needed transcripts. I couldn’t get them because I had a balance. The financial aid office could see in the computer the money was in transit and would be received the next day. I owed nothing out of pocket They still wouldn’t sign for me to order the transcripts.. I recently toured the campus with my daughter. She will be attending next year as a freshman. My degree here has helped me get into a great school (Salve Regina) for a masters degree My income has doubled since graduating and I have jobs I love. A degree from Post will help you, it is not a scam as some say. (Income not affected by masters) Would I recommend to you? I’m letting my daughter attend next year. (She looked at UConn(WTBY), Quinnipiac, and Post. She loved the campus and chose Post. It worked for me and I’m sure it will work for her."

"This "school" seems like a scam. I enrolled in classes and completed the first week. On the Sunday of Week 2, someone very dear to me died suddenly and unexpectedly. I did the right thing and contacted my advisor and professors right away, and I was assured that I would receive extensions on my deadlines as I deal with all this. I even sent an updated email with the service schedule, so that they would know when I would be completely out of touch with that. I received no further response. The days of the funeral and burial themselves, I looked at my phone at the end of two very long days as I had to say my final goodbyes to the the closest thing to a father I ever had, two days that I had notified them in advance that I would be completely unavailable for, and I find numerous missed calls and messages about how I am now failing my classes. So much for those extensions! I indicated that I wished to withdraw, and they are giving me the run-around making that absolutely impossible for me. Numerous people are contacting me every few hours, and none of them seem at all aware of the conversations I have had with anyone else. I am out of patience and I am completely discussed. Let my nightmare be a lesson to anyone else who is considering this school. They seem too good to be true because they are. It is a complete scam. I got a degree in an unrelated field at another college, and they would never have acted that unprofessionally, insensitively, and fraudulently."

"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."

"Shady in most aspects. It is a shame because the school offers the exact program that I want. However, their grading system is curious, as is their tuition reimbursement policy. Inconsistencies all around. And watch out for plagiarism on the discussion boards because instructors do not seem to care."

"I have a year and a half left before graduating. I think, my date has changed a couple of times already. The staff at Post University is great when it comes to the academic advisors and instructors. Financial Aid is a different story. They are rude and do not help you. When your financial aid runs out, they don't tell you anything until it's too late. They then expect you to pay out of pocket but loads of money or not register you for classes. I loved this school up until this point. Classes are a little high for the education you receive. Look around before just settling for a college with online courses. You can receive a great education without broken pockets each month. Communication is key to many things in life and Post University's department of Financial Aid has not comprehended how this works. Nor do they have the compassion when you can not just pay large amounts of money right when they want it. Hope this helps someone in the future."

"I transferred to Post after getting one class away from completing a Forensics degree. I just wanted to go somewhere else with my career plan. The degree plan I went over with my ASC was an Equine Business Management degree with an Animal Assisted Therapy minor. I have been in school for 2 1/2 years and am supposed to graduate in Dec 2022. Yesterday, I get an email saying I need to choose a degree. WHAT! So I set up a teleconference with my brand new ASC and her boss. According to them, my degree has NEVER existed along with my minor. So I have been working on a degree that doesn't exist and the only way I can graduate with a degree in SOMETHING Equine related, I have to take at least another year and a half of classes. The school is a SCAM. Don't go."

"Even though I take online classes I have made many friends throughout my time at Post with both students and Professors. I have never had an issue with financial aid, Admissions or my ASC. I honestly feel 100% supported so I am confused about some of the other reviews. Whenever I have a question it is answered and if my ASC doesn’t have the answer she finds out and calls me back. I never have to chase anyone and the Professors actually set up time to work with you one on one of you don’t understand something. I use their 24/7 tutoring center often too. They are real people helping you with your school work any day and time that works for you! One of the best decisions I ever made was to attend Post. I can’t wait to walk across their stage at graduation and meet everyone in person."

"I had the most amazing experience at Post! My ASC, FA and AC took the time to help me through the process and my entire educational journey. My Professors were outstanding and I was able to reach them. The classes are organized and the expectations are clear. I know a couple of people mentioned being charged for a class two weeks after it started but every school is like that. Think about it....If you had your child in daycare full time and decided not to send them one day during the week you would still have to pay for the whole week. Professors are rehired, material is purchased. You can’t wear clothes for a week then decide to return them. I have been to a couple of schools and hands down Post was the best which is why I graduated from there. I never had to put my kids second because the classes were so flexible too! Post treated me like a person instead of a number and I am forever thankful for the opportunity they gave me!"

"May 26,2021 DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL. I honestly don’t even know how there still operating. I have to jump threw so many hoops for simple answers. The schools graduation rate is only 7% with a transfer rate of over 80% . This school will discourage you from wanting to complete your degree . I have a new academic advisor nearly every semester and I’m left with the bad end of the stick every time . I myself will be transferring to southern at the end of this semester ."
