Degree: Criminal Justice

Gave me a 0 on the final exam because my computer died mid way. Will never recommend this school to anybody due to the uncompromising staff and rude workers. My computer died and I got a 0 for the semester final exam, what logic is this? Calling the school did not help at all but made it even worse. They said they will still take 2-3 weeks to grade the exam, even though I got a 0. 2 weeks wasted for me.

It's amazing, I am in the process of completing my bachelor's and I've already been accepted for an interview with my local police department once completed. I recommend everyone to complete this bachelor's if you want a career in law enforcement, social services, once completed I will pursue my masters in terrorism and security studies with the Charles sturt University.

I attended and graduated from Penn Foster College in the Criminal Justice program with both an associates and bachelors degree. After graduating with the associates in 2013, I transferred in approximately two years of credits and began a slow process towards achieving my bachelors. The reason why it took so long to finish (2020) was twofold: (1) I owned and operated a business that consumed 50-60 hours per week and (2) unfortunately my late wife contracted cancer and I became a caregiver to her for...

First things first, we are all adults. Do not expect to be babied with this college. THAT'S LIFE. People are complaining because they have had medical issues or that they change their mind or had to go out of state for a while--people need to understand that ALL colleges will require you to still pay them for their programs (Most of the time they collect payment upfront. Penn Foster is nice enough to let us make payments) Also, you really can't beat their prices but that's beside the point.

P.S. Those that complain about certain programs not being "registered" with your state, it clearly states before you start those programs on their web page that you need to make sure the program is accredited or not or if they will require any additional tests/courses. Stop making PF look like the bad guy--they really aren't.

Great online nationally accredited college. Penn Foster College is accredited by the Distance Education Accrediting Commission which recognized by both US Dept. of Ed. and CHEA. I earned my bachelor of science degree in criminal justice from Penn Foster College in May of 2017. It was one of the best decisions I've ever made. After graduating I received a promotion at work and received a much needed pay raise. I'm very happy and satisfied with the education I received at Penn Foster College! I would... Read More

Penn Foster College is an awesome school! The staff are knowledgeable and the classes were great. I graduated in May 2017 with a Bachelor of Science degree in criminal justice and I've already found employment as a social service worker with state government, I'm starting my Master of Criminal Justice degree with Columbia Southern University this fall and I can't wait to get started. Obtaining my B.S. degree from Penn Foster College was one of the best if not the best decision I've ever made!

Warning: DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCAM OF A SCHOOL! Everyone should know before they finish school that there are many loopholes that you have to go through. Be forewarned on how you make your final payment as well because there are many games that Penn Foster likes to play. I transferred all of my classes over and no one will remove the block saying that I have to complete a lesson. Mind you I did pay over $1700 from my PayPal account for them to say it's considered a checking account! My balance on my... Read More
