Shady in most aspects. It is a shame because the school offers the exact program that I want. However, their grading system is curious, as is their tuition reimbursement policy. Inconsistencies all around. And watch out for plagiarism on the discussion boards because instructors do not seem to care.

Sorry I ever enrolled in this class

Instructors are a joke program chairs are morons and I wish I never enrolled in this faux graduate school where partial degrees are given and you end up needing to take another partial degree program to fulfill masters requirements. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY

The problem I have with Post is with the financial aid department. I have had several financial aid advisers and none of them seem to know who I am and what is going on with my account. I receive financial aid from an outside agency set up through FAFSA. I ask the financial aid department at the beginning of every module how my aid is and if there are any problems. The answer has always been no. Then at the end of my degree they email me that I owe them $12,000 dollars. I suppose they expect me to... Read More

I am revising my initial review of Post University. I started graduate school at Post University and I am very disappointed with the professionalism of the school. The professor/instructors like to hid behind their titles (i.e. doctor/PhD) and think that matters in some way. The school is for profit. The instructors think they can grade any way they want. The course requirements and Rubrics state what is graded and how the curriculum is graded. The instructors like to disregard the Rubrics and grade... Read More

I am currently enrolled in my first graduate class and now going into week 3. Let me tell you honestly that this university is the worst I've attended. The professor currently teaching the Lifespan class is horrible. She is pompous, condescending and expects her students to learn on her level (SHE has a PhD by the way). She does not give proper credit for work but instead picks it apart looking for APA formatting errors and bases your grade on that. What a joke! I can't wait to get the hell out of... Read More

I was new to Post University but no stranger to Online Education, and had already obtained a Masters from another University, however this by far was my worst experience. I found some of the instructors to be condescending and sarcastic at times. The financial aid department is not the best, and the layout of the courses were not as structured as I would like. Course content was very detailed this is the one positive, but the delivery of course material by the instructors was not. In previous settings... Read More

I will be graduating shortly, and can say that Post Univ. instruction is high quality and very challenging. The professors are very helpful and supportive and very knowledgeable in their field. The only problem has been with the student loan program where there always seems to be some confusion. They control how much of a refund you get, keeping it as low as possible, and they offer absolutely no support. You advisor will never offer any support especially if you are not failing. They are also helpless... Read More

I enjoyed Post for the first few years I was there. Now it seems as if they are trying to get rid of me. They are assigning grades that are funny they are so low. I actually received a 10 out of a possible 100 last week for a discussion board! I didn't know you could get a 10 unless you just didn't hand in any work. I thought it was a mistake so I wrote the teacher who told me she thought I was trying to get my future clients to like me. A 90 point deduction for liking me? I admit I'm not the greatest...

Tell us about your college experience.

I started the Masters in Human Services program 5 years ago (took a year off) and just about to graduate. It was definitely a mistake in going to this school. The first several years were great. The professors were really helpful and in touch with students, set reasonable expectations and challenged the students. Over the past year or so, I have noticed that the University mainly hires adjunct professors from all over the country to teach their classes. Some... Read More

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

Yes -- Human Services is essentially social work -- and I love this field.

What advice can you offer other students?

Choose your field wisely -- preferably a high growth area -- and try to be flexible in geographical areas for the most promising hiring opportunities.
