Post University is an accredited University that offers students the academic, social and leadership skills they will need to succeed in their chosen fields.
State Licensure and Accreditation
Post University is licensed by the Connecticut Office of Financial and Academic Affairs for Higher Education. The Office assures that degree-granting institutions of high education meet the highest standards of quality and compliance with state and federal regulations. More information can be found here.
In addition to licensure, the State of Connecticut also ensures through its accreditation process that Post University continues to meet the quality standards established by the state. Post University's accreditation by the State of Connecticut carries with it authorization to award specified degrees.
Post University is also accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). This is the regional accreditation agency for more than 200 colleges and universities in the six New England states: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. The Commission is one of six organizations recognized by the US Department of Education and by the Council on Higher Education as being reliable authorities on the quality of institutions of higher education. This recognition provides for the transferability of credits by assuring standards of quality. Post University has been accredited by NEASC since 1972.
Post University is accredited by the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc.
Accreditation of an institution of higher education by the Commission indicates that it meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of institutional quality periodically applied through a peer review process. An accredited college or university is one which has available the necessary resources to achieve its stated purposes through appropriate educational programs, is substantially doing so, and give reasonable evidence that it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Institutional integrity is also addressed through accreditation.
Accreditation by the Commission is not partial but applies to the institution as a whole. As such, it is not a guarantee of every course or program offered, or the competence of individual graduates. Rather, it provides reasonable assurance about the quality of opportunities available to students who attend the institution.
Inquiries regarding the accreditation status by the Commission should be directed to the administrative staff of the institution. Individuals may also contact:
