Finally! Earn an Accelerated Online Degree and ACTUALLY Learn Something! Post university offers accelerated online degree programs (I am earning a BS in Accounting) that actually prepare you for a career in the real world! This school is not a &quot;diploma mill&quot; like a lot of online schools, and requires real coursework, from real instructors. The professors are easy to contact, respond quickly to emails, and are knowledgable in their fields. As well, the course materials are current and relevant. You do have a lot of work to do, but it is well worth it. This is one school I actually feel is giving me an education for my money!

Post's financial aid office contacted me immediately after being admitted into the college...and I mean immediately. They made the entire financial aid process very easy, and there were no administrative problems whatsoever. After hearing about the financial aid difficulties that other students have had with other colleges, I am so glad that I'm going to Post, where financial aid is hassle free!

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.
