Founded in 1890 

For more than 130 years, Post has focused on student success. That focus enables us to change with the times, providing new and more personal learning experiences for our students. Over 25 years ago, Post University was a pioneer in the development of online education in Connecticut. Thanks to our ability to adapt to innovation, Post offers the flexibility of multiple degree and certificate programs—undergraduate and graduate—on and off our main campus.  


Welcoming Community  

Post makes its main campus home in Waterbury, Connecticut, on 58 beautiful acres in the heart of New England. We are proud to offer the programs, athletics, and academic support you would find at a big-name school as well as the dynamic culture and welcoming feel of a tight-knit college community. We are also proud to be able to offer many of the same advantages—academic support, learning flexibility, a welcoming community—online. 


One-On-One Support 

At Post, our focus on “making education personal” extends to every step of the learning process, from helping you understand your financial aid options to providing online tutoring support. We are here to offer advice, counsel, and support when and where you need us. In fact, as soon as you enroll, your team of personal advisors are on the job. They will help you complete the financial aid process, choose the program that fits your needs, work with you to align your education with your specific goals for the future, coach you through to academic success, and, when it is time, help you with your job search.
