Vet tech degree program
Flexible and Affordable
July 30, 2016
Penn Foster was a clear choice for me when I started looking at programs. It is so much more affordable, with books included in the quoted price, and they allow me to make monthly payments rather than taking out a loan. For me, the biggest factor was flexibility. I work full time and I cannot lose any hours. Because the program is self-paced, I'm able to set my own goal for turning in projects and ...
Save yourself the frustration
February 26, 2016
Don't bother with this school. It is for-profit and it seems that is all they care about, keeping people enrolled and keeping people paying. The online format is convenient for a lot of people but the use of technology is confusing. Tuition they said was $1500 for the entire curriculum. You could pay in installments, but if you changed your mind, you end up paying $500 just to buy your way out. To keep you ...
Penn Foster is What YOU Make of It
January 6, 2016
It is hard to get good critical reviews on Penn Foster. Penn Foster is what you make of it. If you read most of the negative reviews you will find that most are from people who find studying at their own pace and staying self-motivated a foreign concept. Most of their complaints are basically of their own making for not doing due diligence on subjects such as transfer credits, etc... Because of Penn Foster's low ...
Beware of accreditation claims made by this school
November 12, 2015
Beware of claims of accreditation. You will not be able to transfer credits to a real regionally accredited college (perhaps Excelsior in Albany). I called admissions as my daughter is interested in the vet tech program. Having a graduate degree in education and being familiar with accreditation standards and processes I am disappointed in the slick sales and poor standards this school represents. It does not take much to be honest to potential students. DEAC ...

Don't waste your time. I'm at the end of semester 3 and I'm going to finish. But choice some place else, I wouldn't recommend this program. The instructors are horrible, the courses are ok.
Incredibly Bad Program
August 29, 2015
While the cost of this program is good, the quality of education and instructors is extremely poor. There are many technical errors in their curriculum. Many of the instructors are new to the field. The program director is basically a poster boy and has no real power in the program to help the students and defers to other faculty to make decisions. The skills that are required to be performed in the two practicums are ...
Not a negative thing to say!! PF Proud!
June 2, 2015
I absolutely love Penn Foster College. It's impossible to come up with even one negative comment. They do offer online programs, so if you aren't a self-starter, or able to motivate yourself to keep going, it's probably not for you. I have taken many online courses through community colleges, and have had some bad luck. I was hesitant to pursue another online degree, but really wanted to take an accredited Veterinary Technology program in order ...
