    Post University has a wonderful online program! The professors are overall very engaging, and the online classroom environment is both challenging and rewarding. The only aspect of this school that I would like to see change is the graduation rate, but I truly believe that the lack of graduates pertains more to on-campus students, rather than online students. Post University is located in the heart of a major city in CT, and therefore the traffic is almost unbearable! However, I highly recommend the online program,!

    Since Post University is a small personalized college, students are not just a number-they are very well known amongst proffesors, staff, and other classmates. With small class sizes, students are able to gain that one on one attention with their proffesors, and not lost in the crowd. I loved that the proffesors are well diversed in their area of study and bring real life experiences into the classroom. Many proffesors are still praticing in their field or, some who have retired. Professors are also a great resourse for internships and have many connections to the outside world-helping students get their foot in the door to many successful careers.
    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.
