When I walk onto the Post University campus, I immediately feel comfortable and at home. I have trust in my counselors and teachers that I will be in safe hands. The students are there with open arms; and that's even coming from someone with severe social anxiety! I've never been happier than at Post.
Post University is unlike any other University, it is the best school to go to for the fact that even if you are an online student the entire staff there goes above and beyond to assist in any way they can. They will make sure they touch base with you each month, if not at least by each mod. Everyone is very friendly and you are not going into the class blind, you always have all the information you need up front. The Financial department is wonderful and works hard to assist you with making you that you are covered for the classes as well as, being there to assist you when having to set up payment options. I would recommend this school to anyone, yes it may be fast passed, however, they give you a great deal of information on how to manage your time efficiently with being able to complete all the work you may have. It is comfortable and just the right fit.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience pursuing my second Bachelor's through Post University's online program. I obtained my first Bachelor's in psychology attending Northeastern University, and I wasn't sure how I would adapt to the online setting. However, learning online at Post proved to be very enjoyable and not difficult at all. It does require self-pacing and increased accountability, but as long as your work ethic is in line, online learning does not present anymore challenges than classroom learning does.

I have just three courses left until I receive my BS in accounting and finance, and despite the fact that I don't have my degree yet, I have still landed a position as a Technical Accountant for IBM. I look forward to pursuing a career path made possible by attending Post University.
