I am proud to have graduated from Penn Foster and I would do it all over again if I had to. All of the instructors and the Student Service Reps are polite, caring, respectful, and knowledgeable. They are all willing to help and they take pride in their jobs and each student they speak to.

My overall experience with Penn Foster was great. You are allowed to go at your own speed, and the school gives encouragement to keep you going. I would recommend Penn Foster.

I really liked that the Penn Foster programs are so systematic. Each lesson builds on what you have learned and it all works together. I also liked the feeling of being part of a class, even though I did all the classes online. Thank you, Penn Foster for being there for me. I am proud of myself for graduating.

What is the difference among Penn Foster College’s Human Resources Associate Degree, Penn Foster College's Human Resources Undergraduate Certificate, and Penn Foster Career School's Human Resources Essentials Certificate programs?
The difference among the three credentials (associate degree, undergraduate certificate, and essentials certificate) is based on the amount of coursework that is required to earn each credential. The associate degree requires the most coursework, with the essentials certificate having the least. Credits earned in the undergraduate certificate are transferable to the associate degree program, and the essentials certificate credits are transferable to both the undergraduate certificate and associate degree programs.
