    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,!

    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.
    I never thought or even took it seriously that I could actually enroll let alone attend College. Bet the financial advisors and staff have help me to feel so comfortable in the process. They call me just to see if I'm okay or if I need anything. The professors are accessible and 24hr tutors. If I'm unaware or uncomfortable about anything, they make sure I understand and walk me through the process to make sure it's done.
    Since I've been a student with Post University I no longer procrastinate or doubt myself.
    I'm 42 years old and I can still achieve my goals
    Thanks Post University
