MILITARY PROGRAMS CONTINUE TO GROW AND GAIN RECOGNITION

At Post University, we feel privileged to be able to accommodate those who are serving or have served our country. We are proud to announce that in February, we added the Naval Recruiting Command to our list of Military partnerships.

Navy recruiters can now receive up to 21 credits toward their Post University associate's degree or up to 48 credits toward their Post University bachelor's degree for professional military and recruiting training. Sailors also can transfer in credits earned at other accredited universities. We have reduced our tuition and eliminated the cost of books, leaving Sailors with no out-of-pocket expenses.

Post University was also recognized by Military Advanced Education (MAE) magazine as a Top Military-Friendly School for the second consecutive year. This distinction ranks us in the top 10 percent of military-friendly schools based on the quality of our academics and the support we provide to the military, veterans and their dependents. >> read more
