  • Dressmaking Class
  • 25

I decided I wanted to learn more about sewing so I decided to take the course on Dressmaking. It's ridiculous, the one shipment I received took a month for them to send it and my "equipment" was a cheap $5.00 3 ring binder. I finished 6 out of 22 lessons, before I had enough. Suddenly, the next course is online only, which I can't learn that way, I need to read with a book and highlight and take... Read more

  • Medical Billing
  • 17

I was taking Medical Billing and Medical Coding when it seemed to be alright until I reached Medical Coding 2. I started needing some assistance on my Coding problems. I received very little help, and my grades continued not to improve. I could not get them to understand to help me on the coding. I feel that I will not know enough about coding and if I had some instructional support to help me... Read more

  • School Program
  • 44

I was a student at PF, by choice I withdrew. I had defaulted on the program I was enrolled with due to financial hardships and I was aware of that. They sent me an email stating I could come back to the school for a low monthly price, so I fell for it. They gave me a whole new account number, in which I had to re-register. 2 weeks later, I had received phone calls from their collection agency... Read more

We decided to not go with Penn Foster. Our son never started any of the curriculum. First, after we said do not leave our credit card number on file. We will pay in full when we decide to continue. They kept it on file. It took three phone calls to unroll him in their program. They continued to send paperwork, phone calls, emails, etc. Each of the phone calls we made to cancel the program...

I could not get nobody to assist me.I figured I would give it another try since in the past I never had any problems with Penn Foster. Please assist. I have already paid for this... Read more

I enrolled into the highschool program about 6 months ago. I need my diploma so I can join the Navy. I was told from the get go, that I could finish as fast as I wanted too. I finished 9 courses in 2 weeks. My account was frozen due to, "Rapid Progression". There was lie number 1. So I had to wait 2 weeks and take 9 extra exams and write a letter explaining how I progressed rapidly and why. After... Read more

  • College Credits
  • 143

If you enroll in Penn Foster Career School with the plan to transfer credits to another school, please CHECK with the institution you want to transfer to FIRST. My daughter wasted two years of her life (and I wasted a lot of money) getting college credits that DID NOT transfer. The high school classes were transferable, so no problem with their high school program. Don't waste your time, effort... Read more
