The prices and payment plans for this school are very reasonable. Especially with the economical climate as it is. The curriculum is easy to follow, only downfall is I wish they would send the next shipment in a more timely manner. Sometimes I had to take a break just to wait for the next shipment.

But overall I completed what was supposed to be a 9 month course in 4 months. I loved the fact that you could work at your own pace and the online library was available as were instructors if needed. Overall a pretty good experience and much more cost efficient then going to a physical campus would have been. I only wish I had read the faqs beforehand to realize that even though I am done with my course I will not get my diploma until my account it paid in full. To me that is reasonable, it was my oversight.

I went for Pharmacy Technician and i LOVED the program. It was challanging especially since it was a field i knew absolutely nothing about but ut was very easy to learn, especially with the help of student services.

I have only 10 lessons left in the medical office assistant program and I love it. They are helpful, anytime I have an issue they are quick to respond. I have recommended Penn Foster to others and will continue to do so.

no regrets

I started med/billing coding classes back in 2009..after health issues and family issues i am almost done...i would highly recomend PENN FOSTER TO ANYONE....the classes, exams, and everything else they offer is great....payments are afforable and you dont have to pass a credit report to take classes...anyone that has had credit trouble deserves a second chance and Penn Foster gave it to me.... after I get done with this class I will be taking another class thru them....dont let negative reviews not let u trust this school....

Medical Transcription
Kimberley -

You do not receive your diploma until your account is paid in full. They won't even send you a letter of completion. So you if you choose the payment plan..beware that you will not receive anything from the school until you account is paid in full, So I have another 18 months of payments before I even see my diploma and I've already completed the whole course..

Occupational Therapist AIDE
Casey Gloor -
Please don't be fooled, Penn Foster doesn't offer an OTA certificaton course. They can get you certified as an AIDE, not an Assistant. I am currently taking the course and find it very educational, but I still need to find a school that I can get an Associates degree.
Medical Office Assistant
C.W. -
I am enrolled in the medical office assistant program through Penn Foster and so far I really like it! It's self paced and easy to understand. The tuition is also very reasonable. I would recommend this school to anyone who is interested in attending a career college.
Medical Trancription
Tracie -
I recently started the medical transcription program. I have no complaints so far. I am very pleased with the program,and I plan on getting my billing and coding degree through Penn Foster after I complete the Medical Transcription program.
Penn Foster is a good school
Kari -
I am half way done with my medical transcription course through Penn Foster. They have been very helpful. They respond quickly to my needs. My books are always at my house well before they say they will be. I have been provided with everything I've needed. I also have access to an online library and book store. If I refer a friend some of my tuition is taken off. Speaking of tuition it is the most reasonable priced school I found online. You can pay in full or make monthly payments that you can either send in or have withdrawn from your bank account. I chose the later and they have been trustworthy. I also started with very little money down. My monthly payments are small as well. I so far have no complaints about this school. I'm very happy with it.
