This school absolutely awful. I am in my last semester. Took my finals in July and still awaiting to graduate because they are ridiculous with the large animal externship. It took me 3 months to find a large animal veterinarian to take me on for my externship. Not to mention some large animal vets that won't even take Penn Foster on do to their ridiculous requirements. I'm waiting and waiting for final approval to start my externship and every time they send my paperwork back and back. Even though I fixed it numerous times. I don't recommend this school to anyone!!!!
A very comprehensive program. Material was relatable to what skills i need in the workplace right now. Because of their partnership with the American Council of Education, i was able to transfer my credits to another program. I am a proud graduate of Penn Foster College
Don' t pay in advance - if you cancel they don't want to pay you back your money. They don't want to let you talk to the accounting department, to get an Account statement They stated: " The accounting department has no phone: I guess that is why they don't want to give your money back to buy phones for the accounting department. NEVER EVER PAY IN FULL
I did a lot of research to find the best school it took me about two years. With Penn Foster signing up wasn't a headache I was never harassed with phone calls asking me to sign up. My mom was diagnosed with esapageal cancer and I had to take care of her along with other things going on. I called up to ask for an extension and they give me the time I needed to catch up. I have worked in my field as a volunteer and I was able to learn a lot from it. By far this is the best program I have ever taken very well written out.
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.
Please do not waste your time or money on this "school." It is a borderline scam. They refuse to cancel my enrollment after many conversations and they keep raising what I owe them, even though I didn't complete even 1/4 of the program. I am absolutely disgusted with their customer service and the unprofessional way they run things. Be cautious before you give them anything.
I began the online program with high hopes and lofty aspirations. However, I found it very hard to get a job. Employers laugh when they see my degree is from Penn Foster. I feel woefully inadequate and ill prepared for the work force. There were no instructors that could be easily reached and concerning the projects it was either if the I did them I passed or the projects were rejected on merits that were not discussed or taught in the course. The cost of the education is low and the quality of the education is also very low. Please reconsider for applying to attend classes at Penn Foster.
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!
By far the biggest waste of money and time, I would never recommend this to anyone, I am upset I even got myself in this mess and wasted a grand and a year of my time to walk away with such a bad experience. DO NOT USE PENN FOSTER!! BIG MISTAKE, DO NOT MAKE THE SAME ONE I DID!
