    Amazing experience! They provide a fully online degree program, they help you with internships or in my case student teaching. The professors were wonderful and very well versed in their fields. The academic advisors are very helpful from day one and beyond graduation.

    I would caution that you double-check everything with your financial aid. Otherwise, you will have a wonderful educational experience and gain a high-quality degree and be ready to enter your field and achieve your dreams.

    My experience at post has been great! After making the decision to return to college after 20 years, Post has mad it a great experience for me. The professors are great when it come to communicating with their students and the academic advisors have also been great with communication during this time of dealing with and living through the pandemic. I would recommend Post University to anyone who wants to further their education.
