I was new to Post University but no stranger to Online Education, and had already obtained a Masters from another University, however this by far was my worst experience. I found some of the instructors to be condescending and sarcastic at times. The financial aid department is not the best, and the layout of the courses were not as structured as I would like. Course content was very detailed this is the one positive, but the delivery of course material by the instructors was not. In previous settings students were automatically enrolled into courses, and there was never a question of enrollment numbers and courses were not cancelled. There were times I would email my academic adviser and would not receive a response (not even an out of office reply) for well over a week. I was very unhappy with Post and withdrawing was the best decision I made.
Phenomenal school. I have been enrolled for a few modules now and I am loving Post University online. It works perfectly with my schedule and my children's schedule. I never feel the pressure to be online at specific times and I log in on my own time. My admissions counselor (Kim W) was very helpful and always answered all of my questions when I called. About to take my 5th class at Post and I am very excited to start working with children.
I cannot say enough good things about this school. The staff is GREAT! I was always able to talk to someone when needed. I received constant emails from my advisor (J). She was always on point, knew where her students stood. Heck she would even send out emails when she knew she was going to be out of the office to ensure all issues were resolved prior to her absence. The professors are very interactive. All would send regular weekly emails. They also understood life happens and were flexible with some assignment deadlines. There were even a few times I called my professors. Yes that is right called and talked! They answered or returned calls! I don't know of an online school that will cater to its students as Post does. I will continue my education with them in the near future in pursuit of my masters. If you are unsure if you want to attend reach out to one of their advisors. Pick their brains and you will see they are legit.
I will be graduating shortly, and can say that Post Univ. instruction is high quality and very challenging. The professors are very helpful and supportive and very knowledgeable in their field. The only problem has been with the student loan program where there always seems to be some confusion. They control how much of a refund you get, keeping it as low as possible, and they offer absolutely no support. You advisor will never offer any support especially if you are not failing. They are also helpless when it comes to helping with locating internships outside of Conn. You are on your own, and they don't care if you get an internship, they just start treating you as though you have left the program without even contacting you to see how you are progressing in your internship search. Good quality education from highly qualified and skilled professors, but you cannot bank on the school's their support.
I don't really have problems with the online education that I am receiving at Post however, I am disappointed with the way that they do business. Post will enroll you without your transcripts, without your financial aid in place, without fully disclosing the cost of tuition for your specific degree and without telling you that you're officially enrolled. My advice for prospective students would be to do all of your own research on their website before even contacting them for more information. An online degree from Post will cost you upwards of $75,000. You need 120 credits to graduate at $570 per credit hour, which is more than a degree at Harvard or Yale. They don't tell you this up front and they're probably hoping that you never find out. Once your admissions counselor registers you for a class, you're screwed unless you drop the class before it begins. One it starts, you're on the hook for the tuition for that class. To the tune of $1,710 and financial aid won't cover that class until you take more classes and rack up more debt. You're going to owe Post University $3500 before you can get away from them. Is it worth it? Maybe if you have the money, but for me, I can't wait to get out of this program. It's sad because I do enjoy the classes and the instructors, but the cost of tuition is absolutely ridiculous.
The financial department is crooked!! The reviews that I have read speaking of this are true. Paying out of pocket for all my books, there was loans taken out that never was shown to me til after the fact. I withdrew from Post University after being told for the mod I was in enrolled in was going to cost $2500 out of pocket. In rereturn I could not afford this, now I'm being told I owe the University back $1700 back under title IV. After getting a run around from I withdrew to late or I didn't withdraw in time there is still no answers. The actual counselor was helpful and respond back to any questions or emails. The staff themselves was a joke!! I really want to finish my degree and I'm so close..
I decided to leave this school because the Masters of Education at Post University did not meet my expectations. The professors and administration are not helpful, not supportive, do not care about students, does not provide feedback to help you to succeed and do a poor job. I am going to get my Masters of Education somewhere else better. I do not plan to return to this school.
Post University has been a lifesaver for me. I am currently on active duty and plan on retiring in next couple months, Post was the first university to cover my books after I received my Associates Degree. They are very user friendly. They have an excellent turn around time in reference to getting you a student agreement after you send in your information (AARTS, transcripts, and other docs). I received my information the next day. The curriculum can be challenging but it is very relevant. Some of the classes that have took actually dealt with some of the topics that I deal with at work in Human Resources and as an Instructor. I am definitely not saying that it is easy, but it is obtainable, you have to manage your time wisely. If you call them they will return your call if they are unavailable. They have a Malcolm Baldridge Business Accredidation (he went to the school). There are presidential awards given to businesses in the name of Baldridge. Post is ranked as one of the "BEST" online Universities and it is true. I could actually be there spokesperson if they asked. I try to tell everyone one I can, because they try to make going to school as smooth as possible without all the headaches. EXCELLENT UNIVERSITY, I GRADAUTE IN MAY 2015!!!
The experience I had with the support staff, professors and students have been great. I learned so much along the way from both the professors and students. I proudly graduated in front of my daughters who have inspired me to pursue my Masters degree. I am currently pursuing my MBA through Post University and their degree programs have landed me an excellent career.
Beware of Post University, I read some bad reports online but I did not listen. First of all they are a FOR PROFIT school, and they do not care about you or your needs. All post cares about are their checks from the government. Post is disorganized and their so called academic success advisers are a joke. I was told I would hear from them on a weekly to monthly basis, after being at post for 7 months I have never received a phone call or email. I tried to transfer and all of a sudden I was told I must take classes or I would owe them money. They purposely ignored phone calls from the university I was transferring to. After many calls,(over 7 days) and being placed on hold for extended periods of time, they replied in an email they were unable to send my transcripts because their was an "issue with my acct". They are an awful school and I regret going there, my only hope is that I can stop others from making the mistake I did. Do yourself a favor and research all universitys keenly before signing on the dotted line.
