Staying on course
The combination of our dedicated faculty and active online Community provides the kind of academic support that can help you stay focused and complete your program. And, you can access Penn Foster’s goal-setting and progress-tracking tools to help you stay organized and on track – select the study plan that works best for you, track your progress, set alerts for when your exams are due, and much more.
Help from expert instructors when you need it
Our expert faculty is here to help when you need it. Contact our instructors and teaching assistants for academic guidance via email and phone, Monday through Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Connect and collaborate with your peers
Connect any time with your online student Community. It’s a place where everyone comes together and shares information, interests, and resources. You’ll find it’s easier to achieve success and to enjoy your studies when you collaborate with your peers.
Harness the power of the Internet with our help
The Internet is a vast resource of information. We help you out by providing online resources specific to your courses. It is gratifying to research, work, and ultimately learn something new on your own. If you can’t find something, our in-house library resources and librarian are available to help.
Choose how you learn
We recognize that while some students learn best by reading, others prefer to learn by listening. We already provide all of your content materials to read, and now, our faculty members are actively working on providing recorded lectures in all of our programs. We will continually add and edit lectures to bring you a quality learning experience.
