  • I am currently going through Penn Foster. I like it. I can study at my own pace. All material are sent right to you. I don't see why the person interviewing you would look down on you for it. You took the steps you had to to further your education.

  • I attended Penn Foster for my high school diploma several years ago and also got a Pharmacy Tech degree through them. I never went on to get certified by my state for a Pharmacy Tech, but going through Penn Foster for my High School Degree has never been looked down on in interviews. I love online classes. I am currently enrolled in a bachelor's program through Ashford University. As long as the educational institiution is accredited there are no worries. Good luck to you!

  • I did, but became angry once I found out all the courses I was paying for were actually free online.

  • I went to penn foster for my high school and it was great! I know that the article says above about how to do that without paying but penn foster give you an actual diploma! One advice I can give about it is that you need to be self motivated or it takes forever. How ever if you work on it everyday than you will get whatever you are going for super fast and easy. Plus all the tests are open book which makes it alot easier if you have issues with tests like i did. I just answered the questions compeletly calm and than logged them in to the comp. I was failing high school due to test so this was worth all the money for me!
