Do not come here for dental assisting! Worse experience of my life and a total run for your money. This facility does not have enough equipment for the students, they lie and tell you your class size will be small but in all actuality the class size is large, and the director of the dental assistant program is VERY RUDE, DISRESPECTFUL, and DOES NOT LIKE TO SEE HIS STUDENTS EXCELL, he will do ANYTHING in his power to see you fail even if it means spreading lies! THEEEEE ABSOLUTE WORSE EXPIRENCE EVER!!!! I did learn a lot, however it's not worth the stress.

I have a great job I love because of fortis! I could t have asked for a better experience than what I got!! I urge anyone to go! You will not regret it!

I was enjoying my time as a student at Fortis started in 2013. I got Diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer and I was told that they would work with as long as I need after my surgery. I went right back to school within 1 week of my surgery. I took a class that was messed up from the professor and she messed up the grades and did things she wasn't supposed to. I passed however with 1% higher then needed. I still got reamed by the dean for this; forgetting that I was still recovering and she had been through the same problem. Removed thyroid, however not from Cancer as myself. She still didn't care. So as I have went on my memory had worsened and I was now in a rut. I dropped from Med Surge, and was told that if I was to sit out that I would have to Appeal and may not get right back in, so I am damned at this time. Re-took class and failed was okay by t he Dean that I could Audit and take another class week 6 of last quarter. Then I receive a call same week classes start telling me I can not Audit and I have to take the class over or we part our ways. I got upset as any other would and was dismissed for conduct I feel it was a medical discrimination. Dean, " I looked ay your performance in the past and I see when you became sick." But there was no care of that, I still got kicked out. And another student in past called her a B*%@^ to her face and never got dismissed. HELP

I was a graduate of Fortis College. Something that I was proud to say until recently. I was also an employee. Something else I was was proud to say. I worked hard to get where I was only to have it taken away at the whim of upper management. These people do not personally care about you as they advertise as an employee I know. You are just a student. Upper management could care less if you succeed. They just want you to enroll. Believe me that is all the admissions team cares about. Once your there your success is not something that the Mobile, Alabama campus cares about. They just want you to stay so that they can get the tuition fee that each student earns them. Part of my job was to get students who had dropped out to return. It didn't matter how I got them there just do it. If a student did not show up Ikr quit then it was my fault. By the way I was a department chair person. I know that if the current Dean of education did not like you, you were a problem for her and you must go. Please save yourself the headache enroll in a traditional college, at least they do not pretend to care about your success. You can become a pharmacy tech dental assistant medical assistant or any of the other career choices offered at Fortis College WITHOUT going to school. You can receive on job training. In most states you can contact a board or certification exam and get your licenses. Take my advise there is no reason to attend this school. It is a horrible choice. I should know I have had the experience from both sides of the table.

Fortis is a joke,they are quick to take your money but after that you are just a number.No one can answer a question for you in management, they will write down a lot of info but it goes no where.Instructors for the most part have no education experience and just read power point to you.Hello you can read on your own.A don't expect to go to dean or assistant dean you will get no help from them.Save your money be patient and get into a state college and save your self the headaches and expense.Trust me on this.

I went to Fortis, finished the Nursing program, took exit exam and failed, they would not let me graduate or take state boards, now paying 30k back in student loans for no degree. totally unfair, just a money maker, and ruined my life,

Very disappointed

This school does not care about the student body at all! There only concern is money! They are disorganized, tell you one thing and do something different. They have instructors teaching classes that have no experience in the specialty, they will not return your calls or emails. The previous graduating class had to hire an attorney!!! I can not even begin to tell you the aggravation and distress this school has caused!!! Please, please, please do not waste your time and money at this sham of a school. It has been torture to watch my husband suffer through this horrible experience.

Very wonderful staff! As a mother of a young child I was enrolled in evening classes, I liked not having class on friday and I learned so much. I liked all my instructors and the Head of Surgical Depaetment Ms. C. is great! Mr. S. is #1!

I am an ASN graduate of the last Rets class after Fortis College took over the Centerville school in Ohio. After 5 yrs I decided to go back to school for my BSN I called 4 times in 2 weeks the registrar to have transcripts sent no replies. Unprofessional and disappointing my class had a 97% pass rate on NcLEX that helped get them out of academic accreditation trouble. I have already enrolled at a school for my BSN but I can't get into the school without official transcripts being sent. I have limited time and I don't reside in Ohio anymore. The website doesn't not allow me to take care of this item I have to speak with the registrar office who never answer the phone or their voicemails. I am have my family drive 45 mins to the school so I can further my education.

Original message sender, yes my issue was resolved by threatening the front desk that I wanted to speak to Dr. Rucker to complain. I also let it be know at that time that I would be submitting as many online reviews until my issues were addressed. Main thing is 74 of my credits transferred for my BSN program and I am happy about that. Thank you for thinking of me.

worst school ever!!!!! total unaccredited rip-...

This is the worst school ever. hard to get a job when you graduated st school ever. they don't care about the students, just your money. they are not accredited even though they said they were. they are four times more expensive thatn the other school in the area. skip it at all course. there is an administrator there called ms. folkers or something like that and she is a true sadist. a very sick individual.never, never waste your moeny here. THEY ARE NOT ACCREDITED!!!!!!!!! nobody will hire you!!!!!! not other school will take their credits!!!!!!!

Please do not waste your time attending this school. They are not about education but solely money. A complete disappointment.
