"I enjoyed my time with Penn Foster, and graduated less than a year.Once I graduated I took the state exam and now I am a Certified Coder. I plan on going back for my associates degree for the medical assisting program. I love that I can work at my own pace, this was very convenient with my busy schedule. I recommend this school to all my friends, and family."

"I am doing billing for OBGYN doctor for more then a year, but IĀ need the certificate, that's why IĀ enrolled in billing and coding classes online.The total program has 51 lessons, almost half of it is not about billing and coding! Its a lot of unnecessary material, which is good for managers, or somebody else only not for billing and coding. I didn' even get to coding classes yet, and i passed already 25 classes. It was about laws and ethics, maths, basic pharmacology, words and excell, stupid projects, english writing, punctuation and a lot more bull. I'm not saying that its not good to know, but you sign up to get classes for medical billing and coding!!! The only usefull lessons were body systems and terminology , which actually you'll have to know when you get to do billing. In general the program could be much shorter and not give you all this unnecessary study material. You'll waste a lot of time before getting to what you need to know, so if you find another school with a program which doesn't have all this extra material which you dont need, go with that one, dont go with penn foster"

"I am currently enrolled in Medical Billing and Coding and I have to say it was easy till I got to the coding part. It isnt easy which is nice cause things shouldnt just be handed to you. I also went to penn foster for my high school diploma and never had a problem with them. The only thing I hate is how I cant transfer my credits over till my current course is paid for. I am trying to transfer my credits over to their MA program but cant. Minus that the school is great. I love that its all at my own pace. I am a mother of two and I cant always make it to a class but I can sit down at bedtime and do some work and the payments I can work with."

"I enrolled at Penn Foster in November 2013, and love it. Signing up was easy and very helpful. The website is very easy to get around.We are currently enrolling our daughter in a community college in our town and the sign up on there website is not clear and the staff at the school are not very helpful. It makes me appreciate how nice of a school Penn Foster is. I have been in the medical field and work for a well known company in my town for 14 years, and with my program have learned so much. The program is helping me do things more accurately and also has shown me in areas I could improve with my professionalism. After I finish my program I had plans to in enroll in our community college here, but after the problems I have had with my daughter's sign and my good experience I have had with Penn Foster. I will enroll in the degree program with Penn Foster with no question."
