I wish someone had told me...
June 8, 2012
I'm going to share with you what I wish someone had shared with me. I learned the hard way that, while most other colleges and universities charge one full-time tuition rate for a 12+ credit course load, Post charges by the class. This means that (a) you're paying per class ($1575, as the tuition planner just told me) and (b) many students (like me) will not be able to take 3 courses per mod because of Financial Aid restrictions. I really do wish I had known that prior to enrolling. It would have been a deciding factor for me, and I probably wouldn't have enrolled. I feel as though I'm being cheated, and that's not a good feeling. Other than that, I am enjoying my time at Post. This is my third module and I've had mostly good experiences with mostly good (and a few GREAT) instructors. I've had to interact with my Tuition Planner, Academic Adviser, and had to appeal a grade. Each experience was good, and my inquiries were met with timely responses. The instructors are also very responsive, and most of them interact really well in the classes. As far as learning, it has been my experience thus far that a student can learn as much as s/he wants to learn. This program is not really for students who want to be taught traditionally, as most of your learning is going to come from independent study (reading assignments, watching lectures, watching related videos, discussions with classmates with occasional input from instructors). All in all, I'm enjoying it, but I really do wish I had known about the tuition situation.

Great online experience with Post.
June 11, 2008
I've been participating in Post's online program for 18 months. They have 8-week accelerated courses called Mods instead of the traditional semester. They have 3 brick and mortar campuses about 3 hours from where I live. I felt more secure about being able to see them face-to-face if I wanted. It is an excellent school. I'll have my bachelor degree in Legal Studies by the end of next year, then I may go on to law school. The professors are phenomenal, and you will be graded by what you put into the course. You have to be very disciplined and motivated to work on your own, so it's not for everybody. You can't skate through by sitting passively in a classroom. You have to participate. You will be reading and writing a lot. You will learn--guaranteed! I don't regret my choice at all.

POST UNIVERSITY IS PERFECT
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!! :)

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!

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 can start you off better classes
February 27, 2013
I have been attending post since Oct 2012 and my first module was a little crazy .they should start you off with English and not a life span class because English helps you more at the beginning of starting college.The second module i took English and I learn a lot from my English class and it was very helpful .Wish that I had took English first .The Advisor that I have is very helpful.After enrolling into the school I found out that you pay $500 per credit and they do not advise you about what to do about your reimbursement I think they try to keep the money but that is my opinion but other then that the staff is very nice and helpful once you start to ask questions .You are actually teaching your self when you go to online schooling so if you want more you might want to go campus.But if you are going on line when you get your award you should ask for your title 4 paper and check that you want your reward sent to you so that you can get your money that is one thing they do not tell you.so be careful because that money do belong to you .

Post Is NOT WORTH it!!!
February 9, 2012
This program was a waste of time for me. The staff here is a joke. They charge a large amount of money and don't teach you anything. If you want to just get a degree without working for it or learning anything then this is the program for you. You will leave this program having learned little or no information. I was told the program would 100% online and was told later that I had to go to a facility for an assignment. I know the practicum is in class but nothing else was supposed to be. I had an instructor just give out 100% on everything without checking the work. If I turned in late work I still got 100%. On the 10 page paper I turned in 3 pages and got 100%. Very poor staff here. I moved on to a better school where instructors were there to teach not scam. The financial aid is a joke too, nothing but issues with them and lies. Stay away from Post!

Post University Master of Education
March 15, 2010
This is the first time I've taken an online course and it has far exceeded my expectations. The assignments are incredibly interesting and the discussions with the professor and other students -- all working professionals who are genuinely interested in learning -- has been not been only informative, but fun. I started my Masters years ago in a traditional program, but didn't have the time or desire to sit in a class for three hours twice a week. Now, I can finish my career and complete my assignments at night and on the weekends.

It's a scam
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.

Good choice if you're working
January 1, 2010
I have six more courses to go before completing my BSBA with a concentration in management. I have to say that I was skeptical about taking university courses since I work but am thankful that I overcame my concerns. Post has a very good curriculum for a working professional. I was able to transfer all my grades/credits earned from courses I've taken over the years from other colleges. If one is looking for a free ride or cheap degree, Post is not the place to go. You will earn your grades. You will spend as much time earning those grades as you will at practically any other university. The big advantage is that you can do it on your own time schedule within a weeks period. You must complete your work on a weekly basis but you can choose when, during that week, to do the work. It takes me about one hour a night during the week and about four hours during the weekend to complete the weeks work and I am carrying a 9.1 GPA for that work load. You will also learn at Post. This is not one of those degree programs where you enroll, pay some money, and get a degree without putting any effort into it. You will work for it and it will mean something when you finish the program. My company is a major aerospace employer and they think so much of the degree program that it is offered to their employees as part of a scholar program. While Post offers online courses, and there are a lot of horror stories about online university support, I have never had a problem getting help if I needed it at Post. Someone is always there 24/7 to help you with studies or technical issues. It is my opinion that Post has their act together when it comes to the complete package. They are not be the cheapest or easiest solution to your degree needs but they are competitive in price and the degree has value when you finish.
