Student & Graduate Reviews (72)
The problem I have with Post is with the financial aid department. I have had several financial aid advisers and none of them seem to know who I am and what is going on with my account. I receive financial aid from an outside agency set up through FAFSA. I ask the financial aid department at the beginning of every module how my aid is and if there are any problems. The answer has always been no. Then at the end of my degree they email me that I owe them $12,000 dollars. I suppose they expect me to write them a check. I do not know what this debt is for and do not intend on paying it. I informed them that I owe one financial group and if they did not get their money from them they in trouble. No business can be run by not sending accurate timely statements (or statements at all). If you study at this school all you are doing is working with a poorly functioning computer program and ill advised financial aid managers. They have blocked me from even looking at my transcripts.
I have been waiting over a year to receive my diploma through the mail!! I have emailed my 'academic success counselor' numerous times and she keeps saying it was sent out but yet I never receive it!! I'm wondering if this is even a real university! My next step will be reporting this school to the better business bureau and contacting an attorney!
I began attending Post because it offered the flexibility of doing it all online. I have a full time job and three kids and my job is careerless.... I have been taking the classes for a few years and find some classes are very difficult but doable. I would prefer not having to write so many essays but I guess that's how online classes are. My only issue with the school currently is that there is way too much reading involved for the classes and they want you to do it all before Wednesday, which is the day we have to post our discussions. It seems like many of the classes are teaching the same thing at times. I honestly wish I didn't start because you don't have the freedom skip a class. You only have one week off in the summer and three during the holiday break. It can be exhausting. I plan on finishing before Christmas 2018 but sometimes I want to quit all together.
Started Last Year, after the first mod I was forced to take a mod off due to flooding in WV. I talked to my academic advisor at the time "which as of not I've had 7 different ones due to them not sticking around" and my Financial Aid advisor and was told that would be fine as long as I could prove I was affected by the flood, which I did. Well after we got recovered enough for me to get back to online schooling which was only 6 weeks later I tried to get my classes started back up. my financial aid advisor put me in a quitting the school all together which canned my financial aid and I had to start he entire paperwork process all over again, then post had the nerve to send me a bill for that first class because they said I withdrew before the class was over, yet I finished that last week of the class via my cellphone so I wouldn't have the take the entire class over. This school is a major joke, I've lost track of how many promises I was told when I signed up for the school and not a single one of them was true, the "professors" have no direct connection to the school and pretty much do what they want and get away with it. They do not work with you or your schedule at all, and could care less if you work and have more important family obligations.
Come on don't attend this university because they lie and don't keep promises either. They tell you what you want to hear and try to steal your financial aid and don't care that you don't have a income at all. They even try to tell you dumb stuff about classes that you don't even need. Run fast from this university and you can never get a hold of them when you need help. The financial aid department is rude and the teachers are really rude big time. The financial aid department is so rude and don't know how to do there positions of employment very well. They calm that your rude and disrespectful to students and the teachers love the kiss butt students more tHan ever. Save your money and time and run really fast from the university for good. They are lame people who think they can teach class. Stay clear of them and beware of there lies they try to tell you nonsense a lot. Listen to the reviews already and your safe going to a community college instead. Don't believe anything they say or fall for there lame adivors either. They are worse like J. and T. who don't know what they are doing and reputations are on the line because of there rude actions with students who they don't like. Really they are dumb as ever and try to tell you not true facts about the university. Leave them alone and stay away from them big time. Keep clear and your money is better elsewhere.
I can not take the 5 star reviews seriously, there is no way those people graduated and are able to transfer their credits to a place where they matter. Or, even if they did, I know they are in debt with Post for thousands of dollars. My husband was newly in the marines and I wanted to get an education online while staying home with our daughter. What a joke that was. Took one "success" class that financial aid would not cover the entire amount. I had to pay over $900 just so it wouldn't be sent to collections for a junky class. Do not waste your time or money, seriously.
I am a mother of three, I work full time and I have a child with special needs. The amount of support I receive from the staff and the support services they provide is why I will be able to achieve my educational goals. Thanks to them my dreams will become a reality!
I loved the school it was great alot of help but i finished in march 2017 and they said they sent my certificate and i never recieved it and when i contacted them again they said theyd send me another and gave me a tracking number and its not even working. So i really hope i can get it because i didnt do all that work for nothing.
After haphazardly running across this page, I felt compelled to write a comment. I was enrolled in another college pursuing a Multidisciplinary Studies degree. Yea, right, what is that. I had earned 100 credits and all I needed was 20 more credits to graduate but I was not satisfied with the degree. A friend of mine recommended Post University. I started Post University online in 2008 while serving in the military. I chose business administration with a marketing concentration. I lost 40 credits after the transfer but in the end I was happy with my decision. First I want to address a few questions asked in the survey: How would you rate your experience with your school? I would rate it excellent but I have to tell you that I struggled at first. Being in the military as a Recruiting First Sergeant, I was extremely busy, traveling almost daily. The first year I didn't devote enough time to learn the system and I almost quit. Thank god I didn't. How would you rate the quality of instruction at your school? the instructions to me was clear and when I had a problem I communicated with my instructor. Every instructor I had was "top Notch". I encourage every student if they are not sure reach out to the instructor sooner rather than later. How would you rate your satisfaction with your degree program? I am so happy with my degree program. I learned so much. Once I got to the graduate level, every class really challenged me. I am retired now and I am a professional business plan writer and I used what I learned everyday. How would you rate your school's student financial services? I didn't really use the financial services that much because I had the GI Bill. I did mess up once and did't register in both the Army's system and Post online. I was charged for 2 classes but the financial advisor straighten it out in a timely manner. Finally I want to say to all the students that are giving this school a bad rating, I also would have given it a poor rating the first years and maybe the second. Once you learn the system "Dashboard, Whiteboard etc..", it will be much easier. Learn to use the library also, It will be a great help. They also have a great resume writing tool to help with your resume and someone to look it over and help out. Most of all, learn to communicate with the instructor. I hope this helps someone.
After reading the reviews I decided to write my own. To those who are praising national accreditation, you need to do some reading. Regional accreditation is higher ranked than national and accepted easier thab national credits. The business school has BOTH rankings because of the MBA program they run. I had NO ISSUE with finding a graduate program in my field after graduating from Post Univeristy. I even changed Master's programs when I found a different Univeristy was having me do the exact same classes from my B.A. in their master's program. If the classes were so bad then why was my undergrad curriculum equal to another school's Graduate program!? I liked having class materials beyond a boring text book, if I have to memorize a textbook in 8 weeks to get a degree, that isn't worth a dime, I'd rather have a book and supplement materials! Financial aid is not always at fault because I had a different tuition planner each module and they have more than 20 student bills to take care of each, their department is very under staffed. If you have never worked in higher education then you need to give them more credit than I have seen here. I had an amazing advisor, my final tuition planner had actually caught a mistake that saved me 5k in private loans that the prior tuition planner had made. If you want cheap or free college you won't find it at ANY private college. I got what I paid for, the only thing I would have changed is having Navient (the real scam) as my loan servicer. Post Univeristy was the best decision that I made for my education, but then again I wanted to earn my degree, not just be handed one.
