Vet tech degree program
Will not prepare you for the field
December 5, 2013
I attended Penn Foster's vet tech associate's program for two semesters before leaving. I do not want to come off completely bashing this institution; it may lead to employment for some people. It just was not for me. There is really no classroom interaction and very little interaction with instructors. They basically just send you their proprietary textbooks, which are really more like cheap paperback pamphlets, then have you take multiple choice quizzes online to ...
Don't sign up for this program
September 24, 2013
I started this program in Feb of 2007. Due to them taking their time sending materials, not crediting me with time spent in online groups, not giving me info about my first practicum, I had to start the program all over at the end of my 3rd semester. Here it is 2013 and I'm still trying to graduate, never mind that I'm already licensed by my state and don't actually need to finish this program, ...
RUDE EDUCATION OFFICE

I have been trying for 2 months to find a clinic that will sign my agreement form to perform Practiums. I am active duty miltary, and work swing shifts, so it is very difficult to find a clinic that will work with my hours. I finally found an animal shelter that is open every day from 9am-6pm which is perfect! But they were having complications accepting me because of Penn Foster. I contacted the education ...
Penn Foster is a Awesome school!
April 23, 2013
Penn Foster school is awesome, I would recommend it to anyone! This is a fully accredit school! I am in the Vet Tech program and it is wonderful, the Instuctors are very helpful and the classes are fun and challenging. If you are looking for a program that is self-paced and payment plan friendly, then check out Penn Foster! Please note that if you are NOT a self-motivated person and need someone looking over everything ...
penn foster is terrible
January 8, 2013
I am in the end of my second semester of the vet tech program with Penn Foster and would never recommend this school to anyone trying to obtain a degree in this field. I am going to be dropping the program in the next week and will be contacting someone about all this mistreatment. I am currently waiting to recieve my proctored exams that should take up to no more than two weeks to be ...
Program works if you work towards it.
October 14, 2012
The program has changed. New Head Director. New instructors. Improved community (they will be changing it again fall 2012). Some things need to be improved in the community section, so I too kcharge and becoem a student leading students since I have already worked in the field 18 years. We need more like that. The program is not simple. It is easier for peopel already in the field lookign to complete the degree for state ...
Penn Foster Vet tech review.
September 28, 2012
Hi, I just wanted to get a bit more updated review about penn foster. I have been in this program for 4 months now.

I hear about Margi and how rude she was, I have never met her, but there is a new director of the program named JIm Hurrel, he ...
