Post University Reviews:

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.

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.

I have been attending Post for nearly a year. I have now completed 4 MOD's (mini 8 week semesters) and have 14 classes left to finish my degree. As other reviews have stated the support from the staff, instructors and support have been top notch. Each class I have attended has been challenging to say the least, however, with good time management skills you should be able to successfully complete your studies. If you like to out things off ttill the last minute Post is not for you. Thank you to all of the instructors and fellow classmates online for your help, support, and encouragement.

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.
