I do not recommend this school, I cancelled my classes in less than a month because I got a job making more than a Veterinary Tech ever would. They still charged me the full amount of the semester anyways! I asked that they still continue to take my payments out every month.. Well they did not do that.. They didn't contact me and I didn't realize they weren't taking the payments out and I got a call from a collections agency and owed almost double the amount! Absolutely ridiculous school. The sad thing is if you pay the school off it doesn't... Read more

I have never heard of nor attended Penn Foster. They turned me over to a collection agency for what they refuse to say. Now I have to file reports because they did not do their due diligence when they gave credit to someone using my social but a different name. Comparing the 2 is not difficult unless you happen to work at Penn Foster, apparently reading comprehension and common sense are not part of the curriculum nor employment requirements. I had the mis-fortune of speaking with PETER S Id number 1470PST. I would get as far away from... Read more

Penn Foster is fair in their practices. They have always been very supportive even though I had problems. They have always gone above and beyond in any help I have ever needed. They are reasonably priced. They offer a top notch education. I am working on a B.S. in Business Management. The people I have spoke with are extremely nice and courteous. The teachers have been prompt in any response to my questions. I am a happy camper so far and know I will continue to be. The best part is I will owe no school loans when I am finished.

Long story short, an account was opened with Penn Foster using my bank account information. I informed them that my information had in fact been compromised and I have never signed up for their services. My bank stopped all transactions to the stolen card and issued me a new one. Penn Foster constantly argued that the course was 21% complete and they did not understand why someone would open an account with my information. The address associated with the account was incorrect when they finally, reluctantly sent me the Electronically signed... Read more

I got my high school diploma from Penn Foster. It helped me with getting a job and I also graduated with a GPA of a 3.8. I transferred my credits I did do in high school which meant less work and they took money off. I got into Medix...aka as Fortis now to complete Medical Assistance. I did not however try to enroll in college so I don't know if any complications would arise with that. I made my payments and teachers were great too. I guess its worth it if you are looking to better yourself with a job and if you are looking into a trade... Read more
