Great Experience - Definitely Recommend
B.S. in Business Administration - Management - March 22, 2016
I wanted to switch to an online school so that I could work full-time so I transferred from an on-campus university to Post while at the same time changing my major. They accepted all of my transfer classes that were applicable and so far it's been one of the best decisions I've made. It's an accelerated program so you can graduate quicker and each class lasts only 8 weeks (which seriously go by SO FAST). It's far cheaper than the university I was previously attending, by about 50%, and the academic and financial aid counselors have been awesome! You get assigned one each and they've both always been great about getting back to me within a timely manner, many times after 6pm which was perfect because some issues were time sensitive. I've bothered them both a lot and they've been patient and extremely helpful! The teachers have also been great and I can't think of one complaint against them and I've been with Post for a year and a half now. Another thing I like is that every class is structured the same way so you know what to expect which helps with planning especially when you're taking more than one class per module like me. Recently, all of the classes (at least so far in my experience) are including access to the e-book for any class that has one. This saves time for me trying to find the right book at the cheapest price.
A.S. Legal Studies - May 21, 2015
My experience at Post University has been nothing but challenging and rewarding. I was able to complete my AS Degree in Legal Studies as well as my BS Degree in Legal Studies with a concentration in Corporate Law. Teachers were all wonderful and the workload was moderately intense but manageable. You get out of it, what you put in.

MBA - April 12, 2015
I completed my BA In Business Administration at St Johns about 8 years ago. When I decided to return to school in order to complete an MBA I chose Post University after some extensive research. Just like any other school as with Post, you get out of it, what you put into it. You need to be your own advocate when it comes to your education. I have had a decent experience so far. There are some bad professors, good professors and some great professors. As far as some reviews that say the school is a scam, you need to get a grip. You do not often find a 125 year old, NCAA Div II school that is a scam or fraud. Unless of course the school has some how fooled the NCAA, All of it's accrediting agencies, as well as US News which rated Post as one of the best online schools in the country. Post is a little pricey, but I chose it because the module based schedule fit well with my personal schedule. If you need flexibility with your education ...Post is a good school. Once again, you will get out of it, what you put into it.

made a mistake
B.S. in Business Administration - Management - October 26, 2014
First I am currently enrolled, I did so without a problem. I was told to write an essay but when I tried to submit it I was told to forget about it. That it doesn't matter. Just send in my verification form for fafsa. They told me that was more important. I am in classes now everyday. I am dedicating hours and hours to my studies and all the posting, when I was told I wouldn't have too. And I was also given the times to post and do this and do that. So how is that asynchronous !?!? I can never reach anyone. I have to constantly leave messages and hope someone returns my calls. I called and emailed begging for an enrollment form, to show my new landlord and have for future reference, I was told no,they don't do that ! I was embarassed because my land lord was proud of me. The school wouldn't even back me up as their student ! And I am doing really well despite all the work I have to put in. Its really a lot. I have not sent in no transcripts. No one seems to care ! The school has no organizations. At my old school I was able to get a real photo school id and I was an online student. Post of course does not do this either ! So I feel like I'm just doing something, I am not really getting the college experience. So I think I made a mistake. I am waiting now to hear from the financial aid department. I always had my doubts about this institute, but I chose it anyway, hoping I was wrong. I am transfering and running back to my old school asap.

Research your choices first!
Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Business Administration - August 14, 2014
I enrolled into Post University, and completing my first year. I should have thought about enrolling into this school, instead of being insisted join, over the phone. I have taking online courses, but I wish it could be better. There is no visual aspect on online classes, just reading. I have been trying really hard in the courses and maintain a 3.8 gpa. I'm hoping to transfer a.s.a.p. The amount of money needed for one year does not match up to the performance of the school. Sorry Post, I am not truly satisfied.

Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Criminal Justice - May 19, 2014
I wish I had read the reviews before enrolling in this school!!!! I was contacted by a guy and he talked up a good game and now I have no where to turn too because he lied about how many hours it would take me a week which he said was only going to be 2-3 hours tops out of my time and when i enrolled, you are required to complete a minimum of 17 hours! HE tells me i will be able to receive my disbursement with a week after being matriculated and I find out it is 4-6 weeks. I also wasn't told that I had to first submit an essay and I was later told I had to submit one in order to be completely matriculated! My success counselor is quite the joke as well!!! She has no interest in helping me to get through school, I was having a hard time in all aspects so i called her and i was crying because i was so overwhelmed! she says "oh it sounds like you are having a hard time, i see" and the whole time i can tell she was only half listening because she was doing other things on her computer! halfway into the convo she says "i don't think i pulled up the right students file, what was your name again?" I am finished with this school!

M.S. - Human Services - October 11, 2013
The school itself is very good. Teachers are outstanding and most of the counselors are great. Financial aid is a nightmare. My tuition planner won't return calls or emails. If you are counting on financial aid I would advise to go to a different school.

POST UNIVERSITY IS PERFECT
Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Business Administration - August 8, 2013
Post University is phenomenal!! This school is one of the best online schools. I never had a problem with this school. I've never had a problem with financial aid. All the faculty and staff have been really helpful. This is a great school for anyone 100% online, campus, and well known to have may military students!! The assignments are challenging and fair. Go on Facebook and Twitter, Post University is there, so you get to see on campus students!! You will also learn so much from your instructors and classmates in the forums. I have done really, really well. I'm a 2014 graduate with a BS degree in Human Resource Management!! Post University is the best decision, I have Ever made!! I feel blessed to come across this school. Sign Up!! :)

It's a scam
Early Childhood Education - July 10, 2013
I was first contacted by them by phone after posting a resume at Career Builder. They called me repeatedly via numerous phone #'s. They finally stopped calling. Now 18 months later they have contacted me again. I told them to not ever call me again. Within one minute they had emailed me - something they had never done before. Scam in the worst way. All of the positive reviews have to be from them. Consider yourself warned.

I like it here
Early Childhood Education - June 21, 2013
I am about to start my 3rd MOD which is mod 6 here and I love it I first started march 3 2013 and they are so nice and helpful. I saw a few people talk about there refunds and stuff. I have not had any trouble with that yet at all. I got my first check on April 22 with no issues at all and actually I didn't even know that I had a refund until I checked my mail box. But now They just sent me a card that my money will load on to all higher one. I feel this school is great I love the people here.
