"The hvac program is a joke spent 20 grand just to get a book just to read in school everyday you could do that on your own did a total of 15 labs for a year of school, no hands on experience like they promised, don’t buy there tools either they jack up the price 300 to 400 bucks just buy some at Home Depot"

"Honestly, my time on campus was great.. Graduated highest honors and landed my first job shortly thereafter... but for some reason and cannot figure out why, after 8 years after graduation, the school cannot provide me an official transcript to provide to a potential employer.. Where are my student records? I guess it doesnt matter since they got their money..or so it seems ......."

"If I could give 0 stars I would but I can’t. They lie to get you in the door and once you start you find out the credits do not transfer so you are basically a hostage to the school or you loose everything. They are unorganized, constantly change your schedule they change due dates and when you get to the last term after paying almost $50000 they have you do a final simulation that they say you have been training for you have not because they give you charts out of the dark ages and medications that do not even look at match up w drug books and then have you do so many crazy steps that are not real life. Then fail 75% of the students and make them retake the qtr again it’s ridiculous and if they need to be reported for all the lies. They career service lady just told us this fortis degree makes you ineligible for working at govt hospitals that was also never said before. Stay away from here they need to be shut down"

"This school is the worst school I have ever been to!! They literally teach you nothing and don’t care if you pass or not. All they care about is money. The Centerville campus in Ohio should be shut down because of how unorganized and unprofessional they are. I am paying 40,00 to learn nothing , I am having to learn everything off YouTube myself. I regret signing up for this school. Do not go here you will not learn a thing and will be over charged for an associates degree. The nursing Foundations class is a joke and you will also learn nothing there. The teacher teaches nothing and is unprofessional and doesn’t help you with any work or anything. She has not even taught us how to do blood pressures. She never taught about it and just told Is to practice on our partners and now wants to test us on something she has never even taught us in the first place, she is a terrible instructor and shouldn’t teach . The school is terrible , you learn nothing , you Have no resources , the teachers or dean doesn’t care about you at all. Save you money if you are in Ohio go to Honduras or Kettering I heard they are great and you learn a lot and the school is very good l."

"I am current enrolled in the RN program at Fortis College. Please do not come to this school!!! I have talked several friends out of going to this school. If you decide to enroll remember that warning. I have not failed any classes, I am one of the few. The school does not care if you graduate with your degree. It is for profit, if you get a degree or not does not matter. The exams have nothing to do with the subjects that the instructor goes over in class, or go over in during the exam study group with the instructor. The exams are pretty much your entire grade. If you ignore this warning, do so at your own expense."

"I won’t recommend this school for anyone.You can do all your assignments, quizzes and tests on time with good grades but if life happens and you’re unable to pass the Hesi, all your efforts go down the drain.You cannot retake the Hesi which is 20% of your total grade .This is unfair and you can fail with 77.99. Go elsewhere and don’t waste your time and money."

"Thanks for your scam after struggling with students loans, you lured students into a big debt, your pocket is full of money that you scam, I'm a single mom and wanted to get a better job, better life, better house , after graduation can't find work, all you care about is the money, I'm overwhelmed, depressed, and regret. Keep feeding your family with the money that you scam. The students are unprofessional, gossip including the instructors, fake, horrible personalities, they talk about their personal lives than teaching. They don't care about teaching after lured your money. You're warn! Be aware of their scam if you read this, keep up with the good scam."

"Don’t go to this school! The management and staff are very unorganized. The welding program at Fortis College is a joke compared to other schools. Instructors will offer you help and you won’t get it. This school all about collecting your money with nothing in return. The staff is rude, the instructors are rude. I had a miserable experience and I know others have as well."

"Terrible school. Current student and I honestly wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone. They act like they care about you but they only care about the money and keeping their “success rate” up... they do that by kicking you out of the program if you aren’t up to their standards. They treat you as if you are in high school and not adults in college. Teachers and instructors seem to care and go to great efforts to help you. Administration sucks."

"Would not recommend this school. They are all about money and the teachers are unprofessional. They talk to other students about students. They say they have a strict dress cone but they don’t. They have passed people who barely came to class, and passed people who didn’t know how to apply the skills. Smyrna location is full of drama and the school could care less about you and the struggles. ALL THEY CARE ABOUT IS GETTING YOUR MONEY."

"To anyone thinking about taking this program. Be aware that teachers and instructors don't know about 1/3 of what they are teaching. The mathematics class was a joke, we spent weeks on things we would never use. Also the math teacher was and I quote learning some of the stuff with us. Overall it's a lot of money and less professional than other places."

"First let me start by saying that there are a few positive things about the school. We have had great teachers who actually teach and make their tests. But they end up getting fired or getting fed up with administration and DON plus administration decisions and quit. I finished my ADN at Fortis of Port st lucie and passed my Nclex, and oh boy. Please, do not go there. They lie to your face. A lot, and they get away with so much because, they are all in on the same page. All the people with power are friends and loyal to each other instead of being helpful and do the right thing. Mind you, tuition is over 44000 dollars. When they decide to kick a student out of their program, wasting that student time and money in the process it is also without warning or mercy. The DON is very powerful and not to be messed with. With a smile, she condescendingly constantly talk down to students. I had to always take things with a grain of salt. She told me i had a resting bitch face. And i am sure many other students had interesting encounters with her."

"Honestly when I first started, I thought things were fair and the people giving me warning about the DON and the teachers were just not completing assignments on time and not managing well. Come to find out I was wrong. I am a good student, mostly A’s, never C’s. Passed everything until I got to Capstone. I failed capstone and then I was told to stay out for 3 months. I never asked for a leave, never complained of being tired. On the Contrary i made myself available but I was given some excuse as far as why I needed to wait 3 months and then come back. Which isn’t guaranteed because the DON accept people she feels like accepting and help whoever she wants to help. I only failed capstone and you need to fail two classes to get kicked out. She does whatever she wants and she runs things in there so everyone follow what she wants. She gets spiteful with students who fight her unfair decisions. I did my best, studied hard, always passed everything."

"I don't recommend this school.They will do whatever it takes to get you in the door and get your money.Then they don't wanna answer your questions or if you question why something is happening you get told not to worry about it, it is not your concern.If other students weren't happy with it then they will say something but if only one student is unhappy or complaining then it must be the student."

"Fortis College, CDL Program, Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. When I attended school in the spring/summer of 2018 the program was great. The cost compared to other schools was significantly cheaper, and the class size was perfect (1-3 students). My instructor Chad Strickland was one of the most influential people to date in my life. Im sorry to say the school has taken a different approach to the program putting quantity of students, and tuition over a relative class size, offering students like myself a real connection with my teacher, who has been more than just an instructor, but a friend for life. I have been made aware just recently that my good friend, and great teacher is no longer apart of the faculty. This is really disheartening considering the amount of care and effort one individual can put into each and every single human being that is fortunate enough to cross paths with this great man. Quality, not quantity is what makes people great. I wasnt just a number to him. I mattered as a person, as well as my success mattered to him, not just to me but more importantly, me being successful mattered to him sometimes more than I can say at times it mattered to myself. I dont know the new instructors the school has replaced him with, but I can say this, Id bet the house on Chad Strickland over any instructor in the state of Ohio. My friend Chad single handily changed my life. Now hes not the head of the program? I am personally troubled by this considering his success rating for students obtaining their CDL is 94%. I would like answers for this personally, and I also believe that these drastic changes to the schools program should be known to others considering attending Fortis College in the future."

"Dean of Education only cares to get you in the door and offers new students the schedule they want, but once they are a student you can only select what classes are left over and most are evening classes. You would think that current students would have the option to select their classes first. Very unfair. For the cost of going to this school, one would think that the stethoscope would be a descent one, but we had to buy a new one in order for it to work as it should. So far, not too happy with this school."
