"First things first, we are all adults. Do not expect to be babied with this college. THAT'S LIFE. People are complaining because they have had medical issues or that they change their mind or had to go out of state for a while--people need to understand that ALL colleges will require you to still pay them for their programs (Most of the time they collect payment upfront. Penn Foster is nice enough to let us make payments) Also, you really can't beat their prices but that's beside the point. That being said, I believe this school is great. It has been a long journey as I started in 2015 but you have to be self-motivated to finish. There are days where you just don't want to do anything but think of your future and usually you'll become motivated again. I'm now entering my last semester and then I'll have my Bachelors of Science for Criminal Justice and I'm SO excited. Thank you for the opportunity to be able to "attend" this school PF. P.S. Those that complain about certain programs not being "registered" with your state, it clearly states before you start those programs on their web page that you need to make sure the program is accredited or not or if they will require any additional tests/courses. Stop making PF look like the bad guy--they really aren't."

"Great online nationally accredited college. Penn Foster College is accredited by the Distance Education Accrediting Commission which recognized by both US Dept. of Ed. and CHEA. I earned my bachelor of science degree in criminal justice from Penn Foster College in May of 2017. It was one of the best decisions I've ever made. After graduating I received a promotion at work and received a much needed pay raise. I'm very happy and satisfied with the education I received at Penn Foster College! I would highly recommend it!"

"Penn Foster College is an awesome school! The staff are knowledgeable and the classes were great. I graduated in May 2017 with a Bachelor of Science degree in criminal justice and I've already found employment as a social service worker with state government, I'm starting my Master of Criminal Justice degree with Columbia Southern University this fall and I can't wait to get started. Obtaining my B.S. degree from Penn Foster College was one of the best if not the best decision I've ever made!"

"Warning: DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCAM OF A SCHOOL! Everyone should know before they finish school that there are many loopholes that you have to go through. Be forewarned on how you make your final payment as well because there are many games that Penn Foster likes to play. I transferred all of my classes over and no one will remove the block saying that I have to complete a lesson. Mind you I did pay over $1700 from my PayPal account for them to say it's considered a checking account! My balance on my student account registers at zero and then someone said I have to wait 28 days after they charged my credit card through my PayPal account!"
