"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."

SUNSHINE - 3/2/2020
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2019
"If you are looking for a Nursing program stay as far away from Columbia Fortess as you can get. The DON is a demon to be reckoned with and is protected for her actions beyond anything you have ever seen before. She picks and chooses who gets through the nursing program, and sadly it's after you have built up thousands of dollars worth of loans. Mind you, the teachers with the exception of one, are great, but sadly they end up resigning or get fired because they refuse to participate in her unethical actions. If you or anyone you know have already been affected by this DON/Nursing program, please tell them to keep their ears open, a class action lawsuit is building and we want to make sure you are apart."

"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."

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2020
"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."

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2018
"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."

Former Faculty - 9/19/2019
Degree: Office Management
Graduation Year: 2019
"As a former employee of this school I would NOT recommend people of color to attend. It is not for us. As I've never been dealt with racism head on not directly I was completely breath taken to see it ACTUALLY EXIST! Especially in the line of EDUCATION!! The career services director of the orange park campus has a reputation for saying racial slurs to students and staff. Concerns were raised to the campus president and not surprisingly he was aware and never taken action to address it since the director report placement numbers that don't actually exist. That's a good look to his campus but sad for the students coming in as they are sold on placements when the tour is given by introduction entry. The wall of students being placed by self or externship has not been changed nor updated for years!! Staff has resigned as a direct result of racism and discrimination!! I have personally watched the director of career services alter mock interview grades that ties into their GPA because of students religious preference or color! Please be aware these are all facts coming from a former employee. If you wish to attend a career base school their are other options out there such as FCC or Concord etc. I STRONGLY do NOT recommend to anyone this school as they pride their selves on numbers and not the well being of the students. The tuition is through the roof and definitely not worth it! Most instructors are under appreciated and are not able to express how they feel or even speak on students disrespecting them or they will be let go so they carry a lot on their shoulders to keep their jobs. If you are not apart of the reporting that pushes false numbers you are not recognized. They also are affiliated with medical offices who will NOT hire African Americans and Fortis promotes it within their staff. Please please please do not allow your children, family members, or self to become a student of this racism circus. They are all about HEAD-COUNTS and NUMBERS!! They have a really good talk game! BE AWARE!!!!!!!"
