Since our founding in 1890, Post University has experienced many changes. Our class environment has evolved from typewriters to laptops and expanded far beyond our traditional campus — to home offices, living room sofas and even airplane seats. Throughout the years, one thing has persisted: our purpose, to deliver an exceptional educational experience that provides an extraordinary level of personal support.

At Post University, we have always understood the importance of being there for our students every step of the way. Every enhancement and expansion to our systems has been driven by their needs — with the goal of creating a successful outcome for each and every student, no matter how they earn their degree.

Today, Post University students can take courses entirely online or through a hybrid on-campus and online format. They can also learn on our traditional New England campus and experience our dynamic culture and tight-knit community while enjoying our residential experience, commuting from home, or learning during evening and weekends.
