Post University Reviews
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.
I was a on campus student at Post University for four years, as a student athlete. I played four years on the women's basketball team in which we continued to grow as a team each year, continuously getting better each year. With Post being a rather small school, it was as though everyone was involved and supported each other with everything. The campus life was a great experience for the reason for the fact that you weren't running into new people everyday. The campus size was also a great thing when it came to the classroom, the teachers were able to help and focus on a small group of students opposed to a large class with several students in it. Overall, my experience with Post was great and I would recommend the university to anyone looking to get a degree.
I have been going to Post since 2012 to get my B.S. in Accounting and have been very happy with the whole experience. When looking at schools, they were the only school that didn't pressure me into anything, answered all my questions, and took care of my transcripts and financial aid within just a few weeks so I was able to start right away. Anytime I needed help with financial aid or my classes, I always received answers back usually right away by email or phone if necessary. They were very easy to work with and the classes have been great. I never would have been able to go back to school without doing it online and I've had a great experience. Another girl at my work started at Post last year because of the experience I had. It does cost more than a traditional college but you're paying for the convenience and I compared other online schools and they are pretty much all in the same ballpark. I love the 8-week courses and I've had mostly all good experiences with teachers and most are very understanding and they try to make sure you get the most of the class that they can. I totally recommend it and I've told many people about your school and how much I like it.
You are so correct about the disorganization of Post University and oh boy are you correct about their unprofessional academic advisors. I had a pretty scary health issue and had to have surgery in the middle of the mod and because of complications I got sick and wasn't able to fully participate in my courses. These complications occurred during my attempt to complete my first 12 credit hours. After exhaustingly trying to contact and connect with my very rude instructors I was failed. I then received an email that I was being warned that I could be dismissed but when I called my idiotic academic advisor/counselor he said that I was already dismissed. After viewing the attached documents in the email about the warning I noticed that it said Post University is required to notify students of warnings and dismissals by means of email AND certified mail first. I never got any certified letter from Post stating I was being warned or dismissed. I would know if I had received a certified letter being as though that I would have had to sign for a letter of the sort. PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THIS POOR EXCUSE OF A COLLEGE! Once they get you to apply and register and get their money then they show their true colors about how little they care about their students. Also I hate to say it but in my opinion not only the staff but the professors seem racially biased as well. One of the biggest mistakes I could have made was attending this piss-poor school when I had much more obviously better options out there.
