Located on Long Island’s famed Gold Coast, LIU Post is a scenic, scholarly institution, offering more than 200 undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral degree programs and certificates from business, accounting, and computer science to environmental sustainability, visual, performing and media arts, education, nursing, health sciences, and more. Our 30- acre community is an inspirational place to learn and is located about 45 minutes outside New York City via train. LIU Post is a national leader in experiential education, with student-run businesses and a start-up incubator that allows students to collaborate and explore their entrepreneurial interests. Our community is home to the Pioneers, one of the top-ranked NCAA Division II athletics program in the East.


LIU Post has been named a “Best for Vets” by the Military Times and a “Military Friendly School” by GI Jobs, and veterans are eligible to receive course credit for their military experience and training. Our dedicated Veteran and Military Affairs staff offers career services and is committed to helping veterans secure employment.


“My journey started in 2010 and the sole reason that I am going to school is the dedication of LIU Post and the Office of Military and Veteran Affairs. Without LIU’s knowledge and Adam Grohman’s desire to help veterans, myself and many other students would get frustrated and quit school. It is only with LIU’s love of veterans that so many veterans are in college today.” – Michael Knauer, USCG Veteran
