Post University is a small and private university located in Waterbury, Connecticut. It was founded in 1890 as a business school with the aim of providing training and education to young men and women to equip them with skills they need to compete in the world of business. Initially named Post College in 1890, the school maintained affiliations with Teikyo University in Tokyo, Japan from 1990 to 2004 during which time it became known as Teikyo Post University. However, changes in Japan’s economy led to the transfer of control to a new Board of Trustees. Thus, the school was renamed Post University.
Today, Post University remains student-focused and career-driven and continues to offer high-quality education to its students both on campus and online. Its Online Accelerated Degree Program, established in 1996, allows students to complete their undergraduate and graduate degrees from an accredited, traditional four-year university at a time and place convenient for them. All highly interactive, online programs are taught by instructors who are experts in their field.
Accredited by the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education (CIHE) of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), Post University is now regarded as the largest provider of online education in Connecticut offering a wide range of online Associate, Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees as well as Professional Certificates in such areas as Business, Criminal Justice, Education/Teaching, Healthcare, Human Services, Legal/Paralegal, and Technology.
Online tuition costs vary per degree program and may cost an average of US$450 per credit hour for undergraduate students and US$500 per credit hour for graduate students. Students enrolled in at least six credits are entitled to financial aid which is extended in the form of loans and grants.
