Post University Reviews
I love Post. Everyone here is super nice, professors are super helpful, and I learned a lot in my classes. I'm kind of sad to graduate, I never want to leave!! These past 4 years have been the best of my life. Post has helped me become a better person with better values, and that's a fact.
Post University is outstanding. Do not believe the reviews that say other wise. From the moment I applied at Post University. and in each class I have taken they have gone above and beyond. Financial aid is amazing too! My guess is that anyone that complains about that didn't complete the forms that financial aid requests. They tell you from the beginning that in order to complete your financial aid the forms need to be completed asap. Plus if your failing your classes obviously the government isn't going to pay for your classes. If you want to be successful and graduate you can. Post provided me with the tools I needed to be successful.
Post Computer Information Systems program is the worst because there is no CIS courses offer programming, databases, nor even simple Web application. All they have bounce of links and readings, nothing else. The department chair does not even know a simple HTML code. I am so lucking to transfer to a different school. I would not recommend anyone seeking for a CIS degree at Post University and build up loans and never be able to pay back
Great school for comtinuing education. I had the money for classes so I did not deal with finance dept. These classes are fast paced so you need to read all of your course work and study all of the material that the professors provide so you do not get lost or behind. I ended with a 3.5 GPA
Have been attending Post for about a year now and never had an issue. Yes advisors switch all of the time, YES it's expensive. Personally, I enjoyed it. Would recommend someone to go somewhere else to be honest. Nothing special. I have gotten lucky with the professors. Remember this is a private FOR-PROFIT school. Do your research before you apply. Can never go wrong going to a state University
STAY AWAY AT ALL COSTS!!!! This school is an absolute joke, and the people that work here are even more so of a joke. I switched out of UConn to come here because I was told it would save me "thousands" NOPE. I ended up spending more in a year at Post taking online classes than I did at UConn. My first issue is the fact that the academic advisors change literally every month. In the time I've been at Post, I've had 3. My first academic advisor told me they would choose my first 3 classes for me, ok no problem. After she registered me, I kept getting emails from the instructor stating they would "see us Monday". After an hour of research, I realized it was because this class was on campus, NOT online. When I got in contact with my academic counselor, she said "well classes start next week and you are past the drop period, is it going to be an issue to get to class?" Yes lady, because I work and this is why I took a STRICT online course load. She told me there was nothing she can do even though this was her mistake. I chalked it up and worked out something with my employer and was able to get to class. Second, Post online is EXPENSIVE and the financial advisors don't know what they are doing either. They send you letters you need to approve or accept, then they go ghost. They don't help you with loans, they don't help you with different options to pay for school, nothing. You can never get ahold of anybody and they just hide behind titles and computers. The last straw with them was when I was in classes and was leaving to go to the military. The military needed my transcripts and to my surprise when I went to request them (which cost $10) I was on hold. I called and asked why and they said I had a balance of $1650 from FOUR months ago!!! If I had a balance, why did you allow me to register for classes. The "MODS" are a joke and are so scattered you don't understand what you're paying for, what covers what etc. Because it's an accelerated course (or so they say) you can only use so much financial aid so you're stuck taking maybe 2 classes every 8 weeks. When I sat down and did the math, my degree was taking me the same amount of time as if I was still at UConn, there was nothing "accelerated" about it. When I contacted them about my balance, it took somebody 2 weeks and me giving them an attitude to help me. I had to basically do their job for them. For being a "yellow ribbon" (military acceptable) college, they treat their students like absolute garbage. Also, the campus is a dump and the classes are dingy. I would never recommend this school, and the minute my balance is paid off I'm running far away from this school.
I have has nothing but success with Post University. The academic advisors are extremely friendly and the Professors are very easy to work with. I have never had a single issue with the school or its staff and if I did they were quick to rectify the issue. The classes are extremely well put together and I enjoyed my 3 years there.
Horrible school. Academics are a joke. Amateurs run the school. Cant answer questions, never answer phone calls and advisers have no idea what they are doing. If you try to complain forget it, it just falls on deaf ears. Sports are an even bigger joke. New Football coach has been coaching for all of 2 years at ant level. You would get a more experienced coach in POP Warner. Assistant coaches are even worse. Expensive If you live there and the place has nothing to do and ;looks like a medical building. NO college atmosphere at all. Stay away at all cost.
I am very frustrated at the process this school has in place. First I was told that I finished the Forensic accounting program then I was told I had one more class. No one ever answers the phone and you never get a straight answer from anyone. I was told that I owe $750.00 for a class I took. I know for a fact my student loans covered the cost. I have been trying to reach the Financial Aid Advisor for the past two weeks now.
I am revising my initial review of Post University. I started graduate school at Post University and I am very disappointed with the professionalism of the school. The professor/instructors like to hid behind their titles (i.e. doctor/PhD) and think that matters in some way. The school is for profit. The instructors think they can grade any way they want. The course requirements and Rubrics state what is graded and how the curriculum is graded. The instructors like to disregard the Rubrics and grade on their own accord. The Human Services department has a buddy system in their department starting with K. B. . If this school and its instructors keep playing with my grades, they will regret it all the way to the Department of Education. I will drag Dr. M. through it too. Reviews matter as well. I will probably revise this posting at some point and start name dropping some people. BTW, the Post U bookstore opened August 8, 2016. Classes began on August 29, 2016, but did not load the required books for the class until August 30, 2016.
