Degree: Licensed Practical Nurse
Graduation Year: 2013

Fortis College isnt a good school to go to for ANYTHING ecspecially NURSING.they will give you a tour of the school showing you nothing.the teachers arent there for you when you need them you basically have to work around there time and if you have a job or children you can forget about it!! they dont restock or order new supplies for the students to learn anything you basically share or watch the instructor do a demo.SAD!try practicing how to put on sterile gloves with gloves out the box!!!Even though you mite recieve financial aid and there getting money regardless they will email you and tell you not show up to class for $1,they came up with a dumb rule about not counting your homework unless your passing your test and quizzes (there the only ones who that)i figure your work is your work and we work VERY HARD ON EVERYTHING and spend alot of time doing it.signing up for fortis is a gimic and the whole you can fail one class and after that they drop you from the program and send you on your way so you have to spend even more money to find another school to go to and they dont transfer your credits. so the NURSING program basically sets you up for failure. # of students in the beginning 23,# of students moving on to the next semester 9,# of students to graduate 2!!!! REALLY. if you do sign up to experience it withdraw within 3-4 days or you will be stuck.

Degree: Dental Assistant

I was bullied and when I repeatedly begged for help I was told there was nothing they could do. There are laws against this stuff and yet they claim they could do nothing. Not to mention they still owe me money. The majority of the students act like children and are allowed to run a muck in the classrooms and the teachers/faculty do NOTHING. THIS is the WORSE school I've ever attend. I would NEVER encourage anyone to attend one day of one class at this school and its horrid environment. They make the MOB look like preschool at snack time!!!!!!!!!!

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2013

I agree with J.. I just recently started Fortis College and i read all the "bad" reveiws on this website and still chose to enroll. I am quite impressed!

You get out what you put in and so fer i put in 100% of effort this first semester and got out STRAIGHT A'S. Now grant it there is one instructor that i dont quite understand or like.... but this instructor is a great instructor...and besides im not there to like anybody..im there the get a quality education and that it what i have been getting thus far...i did not get any stpend money back but that was because a couple things i had to do in order to start class(i.e. immunizations) i could not afford so i utilized their voucher program and had the services charged to my account.

But as of yet i have had no real gripe about this college. I am only speaking of my experience with fortis collge-columbus ohio campus. i have not utilized career services so i cannot speak on them but the couple times i did talk to them they seemed to be ready and willing to ASSIST students as much as they can. admission was great....

if you do decide to go to fortis college columbus ohio campus please do not let all the negativity deter you.... go to school and put your all into it focus on your studies and be serious and i guarantee you will be quite pleased with this school. I sure am. im so glad i came to this school. the nursing program i am in is accelerated..... but i am a fast learner and so far has had no problems with that either.

Degree: Medical Assistant

I am in the medical assistant program and I have had great teachers but one. The scales are broken but they just got a new one. I feel they can update the equipment because half of the things are broken. You will find they have some great hands on teachers like Ms R and Ms C, one teacher is very lazy, ms m and she talks about nonschool things going on in her life and will use the same powerpoint, she cant even bring herself to take the time and go through the homework so she gives a completion grade.

I am nervous in the end but you get back what you put into it. SO IF YOU DONT STUDY AND TAKE THE TIME TO LEARN YOU WONT DO WELL

I went to Fortis with the same concerns most students had. I am glad I went there because I have had friends that graduated from other schools and they have not had the same success as me. My intructors were always attentive and the students around me were friendly.

I can't believe that fifty percent of people would recommend this school. My husband, my nephew and I have all had horrible experiences with this school. It is literally like someone said "hey lets throw a school together." They charged me twice for registration fee and I have still yet to be paid back. The online classes are so simple, there is zero learning. I had to go ahead of my classes because I wasn't being challenged. The teachers take forever to write back and if you ever want to switch from online to their campus...Oh my gosh... They act like a desperate boyfriend or girlfriend and you're breaking up with them.

Then my schedule changed and I wanted to return to online classes, they said that not all of my credits would transfer and I had to write a two page letter explaining why I left school, which I didn't do I just went to their physial classroom, and promise that I will never do it again. It's just insane. I do not do not do not recommend anybody going here. It's just a mad house.

Degree: HVAC

they will do and say whatever you need to hear to get you into this school. I am yet to meet a student satisfied. The teachers are lazy and dont know their stuff. The lab is a joke, everything is out of date and never works. They say you are in a lab most the time (hvac) but they dont even have equipment to keep you in there. waste of money and time do not go!!

Graduation Year: 2010

I am sharing this review of Fortis College Online from Centerville, OH. I personally loved the school. Everyone I came in contact with (and there were A LOT of people) were so helpful. The instructors were there ANYTIME you needed them. They offered their email addresses and their phone numbers (and sometimes even their cell numbers). I could not have asked for a better student adviser. She was absolutely wonderful. Anytime I had a question, concern or anything she was there. I would recommend this school to anyone that wants a caring faculty and a positive atmosphere.

I am a single mother, work full time, and found this to be a great option for me. I had an excellent relationship with my admissions advisor and my financial aid representative. I am still attending and enjoy my classes! When ever I need assistance I know I can call them if I need anything.

I went to Fortis College to complete my application process and paid $45.00 dollars. When I spoke to a Rep she told me that I needed a higher GPA from my previous PN program to attend this college and told me that she will refund what i paid by sending it in a form of a check. When I looked up the information about admission requirements, I did not find this info anywhere. I am truly dissapointed with their ethical practices.
