As a current student I started on January 1st and finished around the 1st of February 2015. To obtain my high school diploma it was my new years resolution and I did it. I really wanted it that bad because without a ged or diploma you can't go further in life with education. I am 29 and mother of four children. I just had a new born on December 1st, so yes my hands are very full. Every day I will... Read more

I had signed up for a 2 yr college course. I was only able to complete 19% of the work in the time allotted due to my work schedule. I had paid in full. When I called to ask for refund I was told I could not get one as it had been 2 years since enrolling.. but the rep perked up, "I'm happy to cancel your account!" :D I sarcastically stated, "oh yeah right, cancel my account and then nothing for...

I'm sure most of you have heard the well known term to "read the fine print". It would be wise to do so. They would not have the ability to continue to exist had they not stated the facts. Perhaps a majority of you either failed to ask the appropriate questions and/or failed to do the highly necessary research. In addition, I am also confidently willing to bet that a minimum of 98% of the users... Read more

Poorly written study guide and the only test I took had 3 questions that I believe was in error. Asked question about the problem only to receive an automated BS answer. So sent emails and post to any one at the scam. Time wasted. It had been less than 30 days and less than 10% off the course completed they didn't give anything close to a full refund. The final slap to the face was the course... Read more

I spent the last year and a half working on my high school diploma. I was worried at first that it could be a scam, but I was learning. If you can learn something from anything then it's not a waste of time. I received my high school diploma in the mail about a week after I completed the course. I never had really any issues with paying towards my balance and it was great because I sent them... Read more

I am a student of Penn Foster, and I enrolled in 2013. I have had an excellent experience and find the courses to be challenging and representative of an Associates degree program. I already have a BS and an MBA, both of which I did at least part of the program online. This program is MUCH better, and I am really learning a lot. Posts about SALES might have been true at one point in time, but... Read more

I took courses and completed them, received my diploma. Now all it is a piece of paper that is not doing me any good. I feel that it was waste of my hard earned money. They promised to help me find employment in the field that I took and they gave absolutely no leads at all. I would not refer anyone to that school. Very dissatisfied student. Read more
