"This college was very helpful for me to finish my degree. It has structure, but it also allows you to still have a life outside of that role as well. I was able to take two classes at a time and they lasted about eight weeks at length. I liked that it was that way because I was able to learn a lot in a short period of time, while also being able to get the classes done in a timely manner. It really worked for my and my schedule with my daughter as I am a single mom who also works a full time job as well."

"In the beginning there were some issues with my student loans but I think it takes a little patience and understanding. Everything is going smooth now with my loan payments. I think this school is wonderful and will recommend it to everyone! In fact, my niece recently started attending. Schooling is what you make of it. It's not about you getting your money from your loans! It's about learning and furthering your education. If you keep that mindset you will excel at Post University. I wish you all luck with your education."

"I transferred to Post from my local state university. I brought 67 credits over with an Education major. Upon registering I asked how many course would transfer....and continued to ask each week for 8 weeks. I began worrying because my 1st course was a Speech & Communication coarse. I told them I already took this course. They told me the courses weren't the same. I argued with them but it did no good. Finally the last week I pressed for an answer and was told only 38 credits would transfer. I questioned then for one week . I reminded them my major didnt change...why would they not accept all the credits. They never gave me a good reason. I told them I am not redoing these courses....and withdrew."

"This school is very shady! I'm having trouble with refunds and courses s***. I feel the courses offered will not help me in law. They switched academic advisors. They claim I should be able to access the new student portal but I cant! I finally had to call Dept of Education"

"Post University has a serious problem with their financial aid department. For the past couple of months, the site open to students and their staff has been "under construction". Because of this, I have been unable to get back my refund. The site is now back up and the school has, for the past 4 weeks, access to the money the government sent to them for me and yet still nothing, I've been getting the run around from everyone I talk to at the school and it is very frustrating. Because of all their problems, I am considering transferring to another school. But on a more serious side, the school itself needs to be reported for their fraudulent activities."

"This school claims to be an accredited school. My experience at Post University is awful. I am a current student, but not a happy one. My main issue is communication and the financial aid department. I started at Post back in March of this year, and from the start I have had problems with my financial aid being disbursed to me. They seem to only care about the money they receive for me attending their school. But, they don't care about me getting my money. And it is my money because I borrowed it and will have to pay it back. Post University's motto is: "We make it Personal". Really? This is false advertisement on their part. I do my part, I make the grades, do the work required for each course. The least they could do is do their part by releasing my disbursement. I mean I would not have borrowed the money if I didn't need it. The financial aid advisors s***. They do not respond or care about their students. I know that there are a lot of people who have the same issues, come on just do what you are supposed to do as a college. I get my refund through Bank Mobile which apparently when you call them it sends you to the campus. So my question is, Is Bank Mobile owned by Post? And if so then I understand why this is happening. Everytime I am supposed to get my disbursement, there is always problems receiving it. Its almost like they want you to jump through hoops just to get what is owed to you. I also requested a itemized print out of what my aid goes towards, and it is like I never asked for it. It makes me wonder if this school is a scam. Or are they ripping off the students and gov. My recommendation is not to attend this school and avoid it at all costs. I enjoy the classes that they offer. But at the same time I feel like I am teaching myself instead of the school teaching. Every assignment is an essay and the discussion boards are not like a discussion but an actual assignment instead. I learn from the courses but is it worth all the anguish that I go through just to attend this school. I am wondering how long they are going to make me wait before I get whats owed to me. Or am I gonna get it at all. I just want to let everyone know that it is not all sunshine and rainbows doing online courses with this school. Post University needs to be investigated and held accountable for what they are doing. It is not right, or legal I think. I do not believe that this school deserves any stars."

"I've read many of the reviews and am very surprised at the scathing reviews I've been reading so I will give you my experience. I graduated years ago from Post with a B.S. in Accounting attending the campus since I lived in Waterbury & I thought it was great. The professors I had for my Accounting classes were CPAs some of my professors for the other classes were so-so but I have a cousin who graduated from MIT years ago and he said the same thing about some of his professors so I guess that happens at every school. I now live out-of-state and decided to go back from my Master's in Accounting and went back to Post this time online. The classes are challenging and my professors (thus far) have been fantastic. The bios the school issues on each professor, assuming they were vetted, shows we are being taught by professionals. I've had 4 professors so far all 4 have a Phd and 3 are CPAs. I've noticed many of the reviews were from students in Human Svcs, maybe Accounting is different. Also over the 30 years I've been in Corporate I've worked for graduates of Post who were Controllers and CFOs. I was the Controller for a CT company and one of the partners of the CPA firm we use has hired a few Post U graduates and one of the partners of the CPA firm received his B.S. degree from Post. As far as the financial aid, I haven't had a problem, yet, but I will keep a lookout."

"DO NOT ATTEND POST UNIVERSITY. The school deserves ZERO stars. In my lengthy educational career, I have NEVER seen such a corrupt, unprofessional, and unethical university. I withdrew after taking a single course because of the unprofessionalism demonstrated by my professor and other university staff. The course was riddled with broken links for required assignment instructions and readings for nearly every unit, which the professor refused to help with or address. She didnt even provide me with the PDF files. I had to get my advisor to get the documents from the program chair. Over the 8 weeks of the course, I watched as a student plagiarized 40 to 80% of his work and got away with doing so, as a student is supposed to be dismissed from the university after being caught plagiarizing 3 times, and he wasn't. This individual boasted on numerous occasions that it was his last class of the degree program, so he clearly was receiving passing grades in all the courses in the program for work he plagiarized. After watching the student plagiarize for over a month, I contacted my instructor to voice concerns over the lack of quality of work being produced by students and in particular, the fact that students were heavily plagiarizing their work. My professor ignored me and did not respond or reach out to speak with me. Instead, she reported me for some undisclosed reason to the program chair. He called me on the phone and began to bully and harass me into believing that plagiarism in a course is normal in a master's program, that it is for the professor to deal with, and there was nothing I could do about it. His tone was aggressive and harassing in some poor attempt to get me to keep quiet about the plagiarism I noticed going on in the class and at the university. When I made it clear to the chair that I voiced my concerns about the plagiarism to my professor in a private email and never stated anything on the discussion board or to any student, he changed his tune and began to back-pedal. It is clear the professor LIED to her boss by misrepresenting what actually happened to make herself look better and not at fault. The program chair also violated my privacy rights by sending a message meant for me to another student. I wish things ended there, but it didn't. Upon speaking with the dean of the college of my degree program, he too tried to manipulate me into believing plagiarism is normal in master's programs and showed no concern about it at all, which I found absolutely outrageous! Ill add that my professor was an absentee faculty who ignored student concerns and the technical issues plaguing her classroom. She also openly stated on an open classroom discussion forum that advocating for ones self or other students is inappropriate, and Post University staff do not care about feedback provided by students and wont use it to improve the quality of the education provided. Now, I have received 5 book orders I did not authorize over the last two weeks for a course I am not even enrolled in anymore because I withdrew completely from the university over 4 weeks ago. Every time I cancel an order I get sent another one within a day. This school is a complete scam. They engage in fraudulent activities like this long stream of book orders I did not authorize nor require since I am withdrawn from the university. What makes it worse is my advisor refuses to assist me with this matter, and the bookstore is not stopping the orders from happening as I requested. In fact, after reporting the situation and my advisor lack of assistance to the dean, my advisor lied to him saying she did look into the issue and followed-up with me, which she did not. I gave him the emails she sent to me showing she did not look into the issue and based her responses on mere assumption; literally in the email to me she said: "my assumption is...." Sufficed to say, the following day I received another unauthorized book order; bring the total to 5 unauthorized book orders with the potential of more. I am withdrawn from the university and have wasted time over the course of 2 weeks contacting people to get these unauthorized and fraudulent book orders to stop. The unprofessionalism of the faculty at Post University is widespread. Students are allowed to plagiarize their work, get away with it, and are likely going on to earn degrees. The faculty are allowed to harass and bully students unchecked. Out of all the people I spoke with including the dean for my degree program, NOT ONE of them even apologized for how I was treated. All they did was defend their staff as if what was done to me was right, okay, and professional. These faculty dedicated themselves to harassing and trying to manipulate me into believing plagiarism (which is unethical and illegal conduct) was okay rather than holding lengthy discussions with the student that plagiarized. It is evident he was not spoken to at all since he plagiarized throughout the entire course. Attending Post University was one of the worst decisions I have ever made. The quality of the education provided is misrepresented to prospective students. I was told by staff that Post University is accredited without mentioning that most of the programs are ONLY regionally accredited. Finding phone numbers and email information for university services and faculty is near impossible, which makes it extremely difficult find how to contact important services like the registrar, bursar, financial aid and so on when students have issues or questions. The faculty and staff are also impossible to reach and dont respond to communications. I withdrew from Post University after taking a single course because I refused to remain at such an unprofessional and unethical institution that does not care about its students and is providing atrociously poor education. PLEASE AVOID THIS SCHOOL AT ALL COST!"
