"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."

Leonard Dye - 5/27/2019
Degree: CDL
Graduation Year: 2018
"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."

Worst school - 5/1/2019
Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2019
"THIS IS THE WORST SCHOOL EVER. The credits don't transfer. The teachers act like they don't know anything. IF YOUR Pregnant ? When you leave for maternity You are considered a drop out and have to re apply and re enter this school and pay the application fee over too. This is the worst school to attend. Don't waste your money on b*******."

Only looking to get you in the door but could care less once you are in - 5/1/2019
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2019
"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."

Lyssa - 4/2/2019
Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2013
"So this school at first was the best until it came to preparing you for the state board testing, Externship as well as Job placement. They sent me to an doctors office where my skills were not used and the office was not an office, the son of the doctor who had an up and running office was getting the office I was assigned to together to be the second location so basically we are only doing drug testing for Quest. They would not reassign me. So of course there was no job in my field of work. They never gave me my certificate of completion of the course, remember I graduated in 2013 I finally recieved my certificate June 2018, after harrassment and them switching falculty and after the while fraud thing. I Souldnt reccomend this perticular school."

"It is horrible school. No books and they don't have teachers. They are just looking for your money and the moment they get your money. No one there have to listen to you. And they lie so much about what the school will offer you but it is all lies. Just look for other school. This is one is not good at all."

Bre - 1/31/2019
Degree: Surgical Technician
Graduation Year: 2018
"Theres a surgical technologist instructor who is the worst. She gossips with other students has favoritism. Dont go thee you will learn nothing. Maanagement knows about it but continues to allow her to teach. I went on externship and i was clueless. She is so messy she gossip more than she teaches. If you plan on going to Fortis at that campus dont do it. This professor is the last professor before you go out on extern and she teaches the hands on you will learn nothing. If there was a -1 they would get it. I am upset that management is aware of it and do nothing after we pay so much money to them for our education they don't care."

former faculty - 1/24/2019
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016
"Potential students and prospective faculty should stay as far away as possible from this place. Tuition is ten times that of nearby nonprofit schools, a number of programs are on probation, science laboratory courses do not have laboratories, computers and copiers do not work, local employers openly state that they will not hire graduates, credits cannot be transferred to other institutions, there is very high turnover of teachers between resignations (often abrupt and unexpected) and waves of firings and administrators are largely inaccessible to students except to remove them from classes and sweat them for tuition payments while there is almost no contact between faculty and administrators, most of whom are rarely or never on the premises."
