"My experience at Post has been extraordinary. I took online classes and the amount of support I received was like no other. I have referred several people to Post because you have a team of people dedicated to support you all the way up to graduation. As an Alumni I receive emails about events and most recently I received a Post frame for FREE just because I was an Alumni. I also really like the Professors and how engaged they were. If you are looking to graduate from a school feeling confident in your profession and a school that can provide all the support, you need to be successful then Post is for you! I loved the platform. Post uses blackboard and their classes are well organized. They also provide orientation which guides you through the process, so you know what to expect when classes start. The Admissions counselors are great because they will walk you through the process if you need assistance. Financial aid is helpful because they go through the fafsa will you and they really make sure you understand everything. The Academic Success Counselors help you register for classes and provide support for just about everything. Post also offers 24/7 live tutoring which is helpful if you want to do your homework at 1am like me!"

"I have been attending Post University since June of 2017, I never had any issues with financial aid or my academic success counselor. I had one issue with financial aid disbursement due to not being registered for two classes in order to qualify for financial aid but once I fixed that I received my disbursement the following week. I complete my readings and view the videos required for the discussion post then I submit mine either on Tuesday or Wednesday morning, I reply to my classmates by Sunday. Any writing assignments I begin working on Monday night."

"I have read many of these reviews and thought I should chime in. I was born (1963) & raised in Waterbury and graduated from Post over 25 years ago with a B.S. in Accounting. Over the years in CT I have worked for and with many Post graduates and gave many friends and family members who graduated from there. I now live in Florida and wanted my Masters in Accounting. Due to various reasons I went back to Post but this time online obviously. The program was fantastic and the professors were great. I've worked in Corporate Accounting since the mid-80's so believe me if the professors were not good I'd know but they were very good. I recommended Post to 2 people who used to work for me and now they both attend. When going for my graduate degree I had to deal with Financial Aid and had no problems at all. My financial advisor was fantastic and always in communication. Post U is a good school that has been around for 100 years."

"I learned so much at Post that has helped with my graduate degree. I have an A+ in counseling theories and know more about the theorist we study then my peers who went to higher-ranked schools. Post University was hard, it was a lot of papers, but I learned so much. Things I will use in my practice and pass the NCE."

"I'm currently a student at post. I am so unhappy. I have great grades and positive experiences with teachers. My problem is with the financial aid department and academic advising. I've been at post for three years and in that time have had 4 different advisors for academics and more than I can count for financial aid. I now somehow owe the school money because an advisor told me that I was fine and it wouldn't affect my financial aid to take time off for maternity. Well that messed everything up. I'm in debt to the school. I have been paying it back but the problem is each time I get a call about it I get angry. I have to re tell the same story and have no one to take responsibility for the action of telling me that I was okay to take the time off. The reason being is the high turn over rate in staff is insane. At this point the Post makes it personal statement that they claim is a joke something is wrong and I'm not sure what. I just know that I am looking forward to graduation and moving on from the mess that this school has created for me and my family."

"My program at Post University changed my entire life, the education provided by this school helped me grow as a person both academically and mentally. As a student struggling with mental health issues, Post provided me with the support and encouragement needed to complete their program."

"I am reading quite a lot of bad reviews for my school. I want to start off by saying I did receive a refund for my first term. Now why everyone else is saying that the financial aid department lacks communication, confuses me. Every time I had a question I was able to get in contact with my Financial Aid advisor over the phone. In order for you to get a refund you need to be a full time student and active in your courses. Now as far as communication goes, I get fast responses from my instructors via email and get regular check ups from my Academic Advisor Kimberly. I am not sure why their are so many negative reviews, as long as you do your work on time and stay involved in the courses, you should be good!!"

"Financial Aid here is terrible! I've been running around back and forth. Something seems fraudulent at this school. When I applied for financial aid they told me I will get my refund check the following week. When I called financial aid a few days after that to make sure I was going to get it they were really rude and told me i needed to send my high school transcripts. They never told me anything about that in the beginning until I called. They then told me that I wont get my refund check until 5 weeks and they said it with an attitude. If I knew this I wouldve gotten a laptop before I spent my money. Now I currently have to send my high school transcripts and scrape up enough money to get a laptop. They were very misleading."

"This school is the worst I have ever been to in my whole life. The FINANCIAL AID department is unbelievable (they are horrible at handling funds) I have had one too many problems I am over my half way point just getting to my junior year at this school and the financial aid department decides to s**t all over me they are messing everything up for me and not giving clear answers or just outright treat the students like crap and then don't respond their policies suck and are very inconsiderate they blame other students for their own mistakes in the Financial aid department I will never go to post again although all of my professors have been great the trouble at post I have dealt with is now affecting my everyday life I cannot concentrate on school work because of what they did to me and are continuing to do to other students as well. My advice like the rest I would find a different school this one is more trouble than its worth and will jeopardize your chances at graduation thats why the school's graduation rate is so low the financial aid department has caused too many problems."
