5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I do online school so the process of doing anything is at my fingertips and my counselor has created the best possible route for me to be set up for success.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: very flexible and professors are helpful

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: For the most part most professors realize they are dealing with mostly older returning students and are sympathetic to work/life schedules.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: My experience at Post has been very convenient. I was able to take a semester off for my wedding and only miss 8 weeks of school.

5 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: There are only two deadlines, as long as all your work is in by the days prescribed by your professor you can do whatever you want. I work crazy hours so if I did not have the flexibility Post offered I probably would not be doing as well as I am.

Students are extremely happy with the academic flexibility offered at Post University.
Post offers accelerated online, evening, and weekend programs, which allows students the opportunity to earn a traditional university degree in an accelerated format that consists of eight-week class modules. Students find the online program extremely flexible and easy to work with. The only improvements students hope for in the future is a more timely delivery of grades and online payment processing.
