5 College Freshman

Online Courses: You interact with your fellow classmates in discussion boards and professors encourage lively debates and thought out insights. There are only two deadlines, your discussions are due by wednesday at midnight and your assignments are due by sunday at midnight. This makes for very flexible learning and much less stress in trying to keep up with school in your day to day life.

5 College Sophomore

Online Courses: The online courses differ from the campus for a variety of reasons. You can do your assignments anytime day or night and the instructors are very helpful when we have a question. If the instructor does not have or know the answer they will direct the students to someone who does have the answer.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: My online course composes a lot of friendly students that are willing to help you even though they don't know you personally.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I like online classes due to it helps me get my degree, but you do miss the peer to peer interaction being face to face and going to lunch and things like that, but other than that it is good.

5 College Student

Online Courses: Post University is a wonderful online school. The courses are very informative and I am really learning a lot. I am enjoying being an online student.

Students can earn their associate, Bachelor's, or Master's degree entirely online at Post University. The school offers online degrees and professional certificates in accounting, biology, business administration, child studies, computer informational systems, criminal justice, legal studies, management for registered nurses, and sport management. Online students say  that the convenience and flexibility of the virtual classroom is what makes continuing education possible for many working professionals with family committments. Discipline is the key to success in this type of learning environment. One negative aspect of the online class format is the lack of face-to-face interaction with the instructor, which helps some students to better understand the materials.

Facts & Statistics

Typical Online Lecture - Single Day
A typical online class lecture is usually a condensed version of the chapter's key points and can include a PowerPoint presentation or other related links. The group interaction in the online class entails a discussion assignment that typically has a mid-week deadline. Actively participating in the discussion board is a requirement for all of the online classes offered at Post University. Each online class has one or two weekly discussion questions that students must post answers to in the online forum. In addition to posting an answer to each discussion question, students are typically required to respond to at least two other discussion posts. The discussion assignment equates to a portion of the final grade so it is very important to complete in its entirety.
Typical Online Course - Start to Finish
The online workload at Post University is very challenging as the curriculum is condensed to eight-week modules. A midterm exam or research project, as well as a final exam and a final research paper, are the usual requirements for each online class. Online students access their courses via Blackboard. Tech support is readily available to assist each student if the need arises.
