Penn Foster Refund Policy

At Penn Foster, we continue to develop new ways to expand and improve student satisfaction. However, if you are not satisfied or can no longer continue your studies, we offer a generous refund policy. If you cancel within the first 5 days of enrollment (for Penn Foster High School or Penn Foster Career School students) or first 6 days of enrollment (for Penn Foster College students) you will receive a full refund. After the first 5 or 6 days your refund amount will be based on:

  • Lessons completed
  • Tuition collected
  • Enrollment date

If you elect to cancel you must notify us via telephone, email or mail. Penn Foster College students must notify us in writing. A detailed refund policy is outlined below. Sample materials shown below cannot be used to enroll in a program.

Refund Policies By School


Refund policies and amounts may vary by program, state, and/or payment plan chosen at time of enrollment. The full tuition protection agreement and any differences will be reflected on your specific enrollment agreement
