Academic Advising

Post University’s Main Campus Advising (for main campus students) and Academic Success Counselor program (for students in our accelerated degree programs) are integral parts of the University’s academic support services. They provide each student with personalized and proactive coaching.

Our Academic Advisors and Academic Success Counselors assist you in everything from selecting your major, scheduling courses, and understanding and fulfilling academic policies and procedures. They also serve as mentors, offering practical advice and guidance on how best to achieve your academic, personal and career goals.

Once main campus students select a major, the Advising Department assigns a member of the full-time instructional staff as their personal advisor. In addition, many students work with faculty members in their given major as advisors. Students are encouraged to work with both their Academic and Faculty Advisor to ensure success throughout their academic career at Post. 

Academic Success Counselors (ASC) assist students in scheduling courses, as well as interpreting and fulfilling academic policies and procedures. They also serve as mentors, providing students with practical advice and guidance on how best to achieve their academic, personal and career goals. These advisors are specialists in their fields and can give students a real-world view of what to expect when they earn their degree, as well as provide direction when it comes time to search for internships or a full-time job after graduation.
