I would not suggest Penn Foster at all. If you go through them and decide to further your education later, none of your credits will transfer. You will have to retake them all. Let me look around and see if I can find that program online somewhere else.

Question- Would you be able to take any classes on campus? You could take your core classes online. The problem with Physically Therapy Assistant and other medical jobs is that they are hands on, so to get a quality education and to be able to get hired, you truly do need that hands on experience.

Like another post wrote avoid all for Profit schools. My husbands company gives all potential executive candidates a skills test before they can be interviewed for a position. He said a University of Phoenix grad has never passed the test. He said only two from a for profit school have actually passed but it was barely so they were not interviewed. He is home now and told me to tell you to go to a local college in your community and take their online classes. It will cost you less in the long run and you will receive an actual education.
I am sure many for profit grads will vote this down.lol
