Fortis Institute Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (108)
This school is very unprofessional, they do not return phone calls. They lose paperwork and the best part is they change exams with no knowledge to the staff. The program is going down hill fast, for your own sake please look at your other options before calling Fortis.
If I would of known what I know now about this school I would never have came here. Not only is this school so unprofessional but they treat you like you are a child and talk to you like your an idiot. Not only that but the instructors are also rude and the DON talks down to you and makes you feel like your worthless. This is absolutely the worst school!!! They are so unorganized they tell you things last minute and then punish you for their mistakes it seems that instead of them wanting you to succeed their out to make you fail!! There is no sympathy and if you have children and work then don't waste your time because apparently now if you miss more than 24 hours in clinical you get kicked out of the program no questions asked!!!! Save your money and time.
I graduated this program. After giving them my money and a year and a half of my life! As a single mother I felt this was best for my next step. They pulled me in and mislead me. I paid for graduation and state board exams paid. Once I got done I was offered nothing but student loans (which I was lead to believe were pell grants ) lead to be paid. They changed their name. Beware! THEY ARE SCAMMING FOLKS!
This school has teachers not professors. Some are right out of college themselves. Too much homework and not enough time to absorb the information. The hesi test is not close to what they teach. Hard to pass. Don't get me wrong but I would not recommend this school to anyone.
Fortis is a disaster waiting to happen! DO NOT GO HERE ... Teachers stink!!!! Their extern program is a total JOKE as it is not related to the program you sign up for. Do not lose money like I did. The only applicable material/lectures was given to us by an instructor that was run off. Their instructors have No teaching experience and they are never totally prepared. I do not prepare you to take the national boards... don't waste your time or money.
I had the worst experience here! Fortis is all about money! I had a teacher actually tell me good luck if you graduate, because she knows people with associate degrees that work at McDonald's! I had to make several complaints before being taken seriously, I finished the dental program last year and still haven't found a permanent job...but I do have 30,000 worth of debt on my credit..find a school whose teachers don't bring their issues to work and you may have a better outcome
I went to Fortis College for Expanded functions dental assistant 11 months straight through now real issues. I found the school very helpful! I met and had bond with my classmate which made it that much easier. Immediately after the program i paid about $375 to take the danb state test and failed. I didnt give up i went back two months later and passed!!! I went from being unemployed to making $21hr sttaight out of school working downtown dc with monthly bonuses. My kids are older and I plan to go back for dental hygiene. There was some issues but nothing to stop me from finishing!!! Even the lack of teacher knowledge. Hope this helps
Worst place ever! Please don't even waist your time! I went there just because I was wondering about a prices of the courses and they couldn't tell me on the phone for some reason so I had to do appointment... First minute while talking with a representative I wanted to go home right away. Reason why? They are way too sweet and nice and it looks all way too fake just to get your money that's all! After I told them I am not interesting anymore they start to persuade me for another appointment...I never went there again but it's been a months and they still didn't stop calling me... Every day I have at least 4 calls from them... Horrible experience!
This school is a joke. Do not waste your time. I went for the EMT program. The teachers need more educations. The director of the program screwed me over telling me there would be night classes so i got a day job. I find out a day before class starts i had to go to morning classes. I couldn't go to class because of him telling me wrong. They dropped me. They also charged me for classes i didn't take. When i tried to get my transcript sent to another college they kept saying they didn't get the paperwork. I call no call back. They don't pick up the phone. Worse school ever!
I would never recommend going to such an unprofessional school. While some of the instructors are great others let ego get in the way and ARE VERY UNETHICAL AND UNPROFESSIONAL. I ONLY NEEDED ONE CLASS. BCLS AND TODAY WAS THE START OF MY LAST MODULE BUT BECAUSE AN INSTRUCTOR GOT HER FEELINGS HURT BY A COMMENT I MADE I WAS EXPELLED FROM SCHOOL DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY. 18 MONTHS FOR NOTHING!
