Vet tech degree program
not worth it.
May 14, 2014
I am a student in the vet tech program and I would never recommend Penn Foster College for anything. First off they are not regionally accredited so if you want to transfer Penn Foster College (PFC) credits to a real college/university you can not. PFC does not care that its credits are worthless, I have asked. They will hardly ever answer your questions and when they do its always a round about answer so your ...
Just because one does not like or it is hard or you are expected to put in work and effort does not mean the school is a scam.

First off, I will state that even though people may have some issues with Penn Foster, it is not a scam. Furthermore, while is was not in the distant past, the Veterinary Technician program is now one of the only few online program accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) - they are fully accredited and was initially accredited in 2006. Here is the list of accredited online programs on the AVMA website: https://www.avma.org/ProfessionalDevelopment/Education/Accreditation/Programs/Pages/vettech_distance_learning.aspx. ...

I am enrolled in Penn Foster right now and I am working up to get my Associate Degree as a Veterinary Technician. Right now im already a full time Vet Tech at a local clinic and im just trying to finish my college education. When I first enrolled I really enjoyed the program but shortly after I realized how hard it was to keep up. I wish Penn Foster made it easier to understand what ...
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 ...
