I have had issues with the financial aid department of this school since I started. I have been reading the reviews and everybody had the same problem as me. Financial aid advisors tell you that you are covered and will NOT have out of pocket costs but it is a lie.My academic counselor used to register me for my classes because I asked him to and I asked him specifically once if I was good to go on financial aid with being registered for 2 classes and he said absolutely. Guess what? I wasn't and ended up having to pay over 800 dollars out of pocket. And just recently I tried contacting my financial aid advisor about my aid for the next few mods because I had a text that info was missing and me and my academic counselor did not receive replies to our emails or my voicemails for 2 weeks, then I finally got my reply that I had to accept my award letter which should had been sent to me way before that and prolly wouldn't have been if I had not contacted HIM. I also fear that I may be screwed again by the financial aid department because with what I found courses cost (1700 per course?! REALLY?!?!) my aid will not cover what my advisor claimed it would, but I will not receive a response for a week because of course they are out of the office. This school is way overpriced. I wish I had researched better and wish I could transfer now, but since I still owe some out of ;pocket for THEIR screwup..im STUCK.
So far the courses are really great. The admissions counselor and professor are nice. The only downfall is that when I request anything about my financial aid and when I'll get it, I get the run around. They won't tell me when I'll be receiving it and act like they could care less. I'm a online student and have to have a computer to do my courses, recently my computer decided to go out and I contacted them to ask when is get my financial aid disbursement so I could get a new computer. First, I was told I got a new financial aid counselor. So I've tried to email and call him 5 times now, he won't reply back. I've called the school and they sent me to a person over the department, I was informed beings that I'm a first time borrower I had to wait 30 days after the start of classes to get it. I found out today as of February 5, 2018 my Pell Grant was disbursed to the school, I haven't received it yet. I haven't received any of my loans either. Before I enrolled I was told my financial aid would be pretty good and would cover everything and I would have a decent disbursement after all few were taken out. Well, I haven't received any of it and no one will give me an answer. I'm pretty aggravated over it because they act like they don't care at all. My advice is to make sure you do plenty of research and look up multiple sites of reviews on schools before you attend, my lesson is learned and I'm stuck with this school for the next 8 years until I graduate and earn my degree because I don't have the money to transfer to another school and have to pay to do so.
WORST EVER!!! Run Run Run away from this school. Financial aid is a JOKE!! Tuition is far too expensive for what it is a non-accredited hoax. I have spent over 10k and have learned absolutely NOTHING!!! Classes are self taught read read read 100-250 pages a week (before Wednesday might I add) to do discussion boards which are graded by the craziest rubric ever and one paper for an entire grading period. Discussion boards should be a supportive part of a class not the only part of the class. This place is nothing but a rip off.
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!
