Horrible school

"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."

"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"

"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."

"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 ."

"This school is a JOKE! I had seven days to cancel and drop out I did on the ninth day! Because my portal would not work at all I couldn’t do any assignments I contacted and emailed and could not get any replies I was not aware I had to drop out within seven days! All I wanted was some feed back on why my portal wasn’t working and why it would not let me do my assignments and could not get a reply or help from anyone! I also had problems with the financial aid department saying I wasn’t getting my financial aid because I didn’t there was paperwork that wasn’t filled out but I have emails of me asking if all of the paperwork was done if I had anymore and they told me everything was filled out! So then I’m hit with I owe $1,850 for a class I did not take, could not take and could not get help on! I have received an email stated they would be sending it to credit union and a collections agency! This school is a COMPLETE SCAM!"

"This is the worst experience I've ever had with any University. I was a student here in 2017-2018 and completed a good handful of classes before I had to un-enroll due to personal reasons. Fast forward to 2021 and I'm trying to re-enroll to complete the degree that I had previously started. My new advisor sent me over my degree plan and it didn't show 90% of the classes I had taken at Post a few years ago. Now, I do have a balance that I was unaware of that I'm currently paying off so I assumed it was because of the balance. I tried multiple times to get in contact with my advisor and even reached out to other advisors who could not, or did not, help me or give me any answers. Today I was able to get someone on the phone and after being bounced around 6 times I was told that all of those classes were shown as incomplete or failed. I know that I did not pass one or two classes, but the rest I had completed AND passed. The ones that were showing as failed were classes that I truly enjoyed and remember doing very well in. Basically I'm being told that since I have no proof that I passed and completed these classes that I would have to retake them. And that the course evaluations changed so some of the courses changed as well. I would not recommend this University to anyone. Take your money somewhere your dollar and education will be valued."

"After attending Post University for a paralegal certificate, and Legal Studies Associates. I have repeatedly attempted to reach out Post University to complete undergraduate with Post University. I have received emails, text, and even a phone call from Post University to get enrolled for the undergraduate with Post University. Once we get to the financial aid section it goes to a stand still. One time and one time only I called into Post University and spoke to an individual who honestly told me my financial aid is so disarrayed, that I would have to speak to my original financial aid advisor. I reached out to Multiple people to try to register for the undergraduate degree considering I was successful with completion of the other degrees. Once I spoke to a person at the University in my surrounding home town, I was told some if any of these credits will be accepted at the University. Now I can not get a person from Post University to assist me, and may possibly have to start all over again with credits to complete my undergraduate. I am saddened, and depressed over this whole situation. I ultimately enjoyed my experience with Post Unfortunately. To find myself in this position with Post University after the successful time I have had with Post University. Leaves me feeling depressed, discouraged, mentally drained, and unsettle."

"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."
