Student & Graduate Reviews

"I was really disappointed in the program. First, it was hard to contact instructors, and even though the book would say one thing, if the instructor said another your grades would suffer and consideration that you were online was not taken. I did typically get good grades but my Proctor exam grades were awful. Final grades suffered badly an all because they took an "I have control" attitude. The exams were open book an I put all the answers learned from the books yet instructors constantly gave bad grades on test if they personally disagreed with the answer. I would not recommend the course. Go to a community college were you can learn what you need and have have to face contact."

"Not sure what all the negative reviews are about. Penn Foster is a good school and the course work is challenging. I would recommend Penn Foster to anyone. I did not have any problems with billing or getting my questions answered. The first semester is a bit of a learning curve figuring out the proctor exam's and everything, but once you learn how the system works everything is a breeze. I paid in full every semester, and since I did, I got a big discount. I also had a few college credits that transferred without a problem. This course work is challenging and you have to study and put in the work to get your homework and papers completed. If you are signing up because you think that Penn Foster will be simple, think again, you will have to do the work. Online learning is not for everyone, however, I really enjoyed learning online. I have my first degree down and will be starting my second in September 2017. If you choose to stick it out and work hard, you will be rewarded with a degree that is accepted at many different colleges and employers."

"I have been employed as a paralegal for more than ten years; however, I have never finished by college education. Two years ago, I decided to enroll in the Penn Foster College program. I have been completely satisfied with this experience. I have found that the materials are excellent and, if a student is dedicated in his/her studies, this program will prepare you for an entry level paralegal position. I would strongly recommend this program to anyone who would like to enter the legal field . . . an area where there is almost always well compensated employment available."
