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.
School sucks literally I graudated high school 7 years ago and P.U. still need high school transcripts to process financial aid bull crap in the midst of arguing with my advisor I told her I was leaving because my transcripts hadn't come and I can't afford classes she then said the moment you logged in your responsible can you say scam yea I am sure bbb would hear about this
Maybe things are different on campus, but online the site is built terribly. You'll be spending hours trying to get it work instead of working. There's very little actually help when it comes to teachers, financial, or technically. The online program just seems way behind and is not worth paying money for.
Post University is wonderful. The faculty and staff seem to genuinely care about the students and their success. Most of my instructors would work with me when life would arise and I needed extensions, or simply didn't understand something. The staff is great to work with, all respond quickly. Most important to me was a business/marketing program that was a "Science" degree (not an Arts degree) that was from a legitimate brick and mortar school- with dorms, sports teams, etc. I value my degree more knowing that it came from the same place that traditional students get theirs from. While there are cheaper online programs (and definitely more expensive), many are from for-profit businesses, and not actual educational institutions.
The impact in earning my college degree had affected my life tremendously. It has made my home life hectic but it has made my career easier as a Quality Technician and Audits. The experience that I have had at Post so far has been good and bad. The bad side is I had an instructor that wasn’t that great in Module 1 and I failed participating to my full benefit because of the misguided direction in the course. The other bad experience is being accused of plagiarism when I wrote a story about my own personal life experience. I originally wrote the story in 2004 and someone had published a similar story on a website in 2009 yet I received a zero. It was upsetting, discouraging and humiliating. I got over it and went on and was thankful that I was not expelled from the class. The professor had every right to dismiss me and she didn’t. I thank her tremendously. The overall experience at Post has been excellent. My success coach is great, my financial advisor is great, and my instructors moving forward have been great. I couldn’t have picked a better university from the experience I have received from Post. I hope it continues to go down this positive road. I recommend Post most definitely.
I enjoyed Post for the first few years I was there. Now it seems as if they are trying to get rid of me. They are assigning grades that are funny they are so low. I actually received a 10 out of a possible 100 last week for a discussion board! I didn't know you could get a 10 unless you just didn't hand in any work. I thought it was a mistake so I wrote the teacher who told me she thought I was trying to get my future clients to like me. A 90 point deduction for liking me? I admit I'm not the greatest guy in the world but I shouldn't be charged 90 points for letting anyone like me. The school has now started having people turn in here first db by Wednesday along with discussions of two other's work. Online school used to be about people being able to work while in class. All I have learned in the last few classes is how much I hate turning in work there. I am transferring to finish my degree because Post demands that you perform a field practicum for each concentration that you take. I do not live in CT nor do I want to. They do not help you at all in finding the sites where you can perform these practicums but won't let you graduate without them. I found three sites and asked for them to be approved by Post, but they were all turned down. I wasn't told about these practicums and they do not give the online students a catalogue to work from. I have had four different advisors since I have been there as well. Do yourself a favor and either go to a "brick and mortar" school or look for state schools who are starting to have online schools.
DONT wast your money!!!! I have been going to post for about 5 years on and off to finish my BA. I go off and on because out of the blue they call and ask for 3,000 or the best one was $7,000! I thought It was my fault for something, NOPE they over charged me. They also won't send a transcript if you have a balance ( i understand) but when you don't know that you have a balance because they keep sending the bills to the wrong address and NEVER pick up the phone to call you, look an other $3,000!! Then there was the time that they "lost" my credit card number and it was just floating around the office. The classes are ok, nothing great. I was in hopes that when i went back it would get better. nope it went down hill. So if you want to get charged a ridiculous amount of money and be put on hold for 30 minuets to talk to someone that has NO CLUE what they are doing, they go call Post.
As a full time Army Soldier it was important to find a school that was affordable, accessible, accredited, and respected. After looking long and hard I found Post University. I've completed my BS in Business Marketing and am currently pursuing an MBA in finance. This school is great. I've had some professors that are A+ and some that are not as great, but overall I'd say that they care, are qualified, and are approachable. I think it's safe to say that all Universities have some bad professors. If I had to point to one weak link, it'd be the financial aide department. They can be slow, and come off as unprofessional at times. However, that doesn't change the fact that I HIGHLY recommend this University to everyone I meet. My wife and several friends are all proud Post U students!
I started the Masters in Human Services program 5 years ago (took a year off) and just about to graduate. It was definitely a mistake in going to this school. The first several years were great. The professors were really helpful and in touch with students, set reasonable expectations and challenged the students. Over the past year or so, I have noticed that the University mainly hires adjunct professors from all over the country to teach their classes. Some good, most not so good. They worry more about logging in and counting number of discussion board posts rather than quality. They also tell you that grades can not be appealed, or extensions on class work will not be approved, so don't even think about asking. You feel like you are being treated like a Kindergartner -- and if you protest, it results in lower grades. They make strict requirements on how you may communicate with them -- only by email and only by phone as a last resort. Worse, they make up their own rules for conducting the class that go against University guidelines. I found out too late in the game that this is a for-profit school and they care more about charging students very pricey fees -- for not a lot of support. DO NOT GO HERE for a Masters in Human Services Program. Consider Northwestern University, as I am kicking myself for not applying their sooner.
Yes -- Human Services is essentially social work -- and I love this field.
Choose your field wisely -- preferably a high growth area -- and try to be flexible in geographical areas for the most promising hiring opportunities.
