"As I decided to return back to school full-time I saw there were many options as far as colleges. I had to make sure I was making the best choice for me. I had to know my needs and what it was going to take for me to complete what I started. So one day in July 2017, I picked up the phone and called to make an appointment. The appointment was made comfortable to my schedule and when I arrived it was stress free. My advisor gave me her complete attention and was very open and true to the answers. She didn't pressure me to enroll instead she let me think about it. We agreed to touch base in a day or two and when we did I be came a student! My advisor knew I was concerned about returning back to school but she was and still is here for me. As far as the instructors, I can say they care about you and making sure you know the material. They'll help you as much as they can. All you need to do is show the effort and they will too. I would recommend Fortis College to the person just high school, to someone looking for a career change, etc. There is no age limit to education and Fortis believes that. In closing, I would like to thank the Smyrna Campus for being here for me in this new chapter of my life..."

"Please save yourself and do not attend this school. This is the worst school one of my biggest mistakes ever was to continue going to this school. The teachers are awful and do not know how to teach and could care less about you . During my time here we went through several different new instructors because the last one kept getting fired. Very unprofessional and rude instructors. Even the lead instructor would always say its your money you can do what you want here which meant go ahead and fail its out of your pocket. They do not care about you. It is like going back to high school or middle school they accept any person to attend the school, literally anyone so it was hard to focus with a bunch of reckless immature people who didnt even care to be there. This school is completely focused on your money. Every program is so over priced. And the financial aid lady rushes you and makes you sign a bunch of paperwork so quickly without explaining anything then you get called down during class because you owe 567$ payment that you had no idea about and wasnt even informed. Shes even apart of the whole scam. Everything about this school is awful. I hope they shut down."

"Do NOT enroll at Fortis. The instructors are not qualified to teach. The coursework is a complete joke and financial aid will coax the maximum amount of money out if you. If you want an education, go to a legitimate two year, state accredited school. The credits you earn at these "schools" do not transfer anywhere. I cannot stress enough how big of a mistake it would be going to one of their schools. Just don't."
Eric Goodman, Ph.D. - 9/13/2016

As the Vice President of Education, I'd like to thank you for sharing your perspective on what constitutes a legitimate school. It would be helpful to have more information regarding whether or not you actually attended this school and if so, what campus and program you were in so we can explore what seems to you as unqualified faculty and the coursework you reference?

As an accredited institution we have standards regarding faculty credentials. In addition, unlike other state accredited schools that you reference, we have accountability to various agencies on our students retention, employment and licensure. As a result, you'll find our programs are designed with the relevancy to prepare our graduates for success in the career field.

Also, the decision regarding transferability of credits is always at the discretion of the receiving school (or where you may transfer to) so there may be variability in the acceptance of credit.

Once again, I'd invite you to contact me at egoodman@edaff.com so I can learn more about the context of your perceptions and understand your vague generalizations. I look forward to visiting with you soon and thanks in advance for helping us improve.
