I was in the pharmtech program.. took it seriously cause it was good. I am a 27 year old female with Multiple Sclerosis, just got out of hospital after 2 weeks. Lost vision in one eye and definitely cant afford this course anymore. I understand the policy but i did not ask for Multiple Sclerosis nor all the problems that come with it. I was diagnosed with the second stage of MS and can no longer work that physically anymore. This school is so... Read more

Pen foster is extremely slow in correcting exams. I waited days and even weeks to get my grades and they will send them with "return without grades " note which means you need to correct and send it again. Specially composition , after I complained , the teacher did not correct my grades and in one of my homeworks, she said it contains plagiarism , which I argued stating it was a difficult topic and all my references were quoted. Still two of my... Read more

I finished to about 82% before the EXAM ALERT popped up and it said "You’re finishing exams rather quickly. Remember to complete all lesson readings and self-checks. Please refer to our academic integrity policy." It kinda scared me which is why I looked this up. And I'm glad I did, because I don't want to lose this opportunity to graduate.

Sorry Penn Foster i wont do business with boiler room telemarketers. Read more

I enrolled in a computer repair class with penn Foster on Dec 8 2016. I was wanting to get more information and updated information on computer repair. This program is so horribly outdated. They are still teaching from a windows vista based computer. Their information only goes up to 2011, in 2 days it is going to be 2017. I called to cancel because I did not need or want a bunch of outdated information and I am still being charged the initial... Read more

Hi all, I am immigrant, I joined Penn Foster for an english class few years ago, I dropped my class from the second week; no need to say that I didn't get a refund. That is not the issue, but I was shocked when I found that my text book contained lots of mistakes. The funny part of the story was that the school knew about those mistakes and printed a sublimentary booklet to address those mistakes and guide students how to deal with them. I was... Read more
