Penn Foster reduces tuition by $40 for each High School course transferred.
To receive transfer credits, an official transcript from an accredited institution recognized by Penn Foster must be submitted for evaluation. Transfer credits will be awarded for comparable High School subjects where a full credit has been earned. Since High School programs vary, only an evaluation by Penn Foster will determine the actual number of transfer credits to be awarded. Penn Foster also accepts transfer credits from a GED. The maximum number of transfer credits allowed is 16. Upon our acceptance of your transfer credits, an adjustment to your financial obligation will be made.
- Visa, Discover, MasterCard or American Express
- Money orders
- Authorized automatic withdrawals from checking and savings accounts from U.S. banks
