I just had to withdraw from fortis college in westerville(columbus oh) today. I lost $7,500 but had I tried to continue my education there I would have lost even more. They are UNORGANIZED. They loose everything you give them, currently our teachers were lecturing over the books we had but tests us on books the class before us had. So regardless of knowing the book front to back you could still fail. Their grading method is horrible. And their policys are ridiculous. They are currently trying to kick out people without telling them until the last min. to keep their money. Please do not go to fortis, save your money, and save the stress. Do not make the mistake I did. I am now transferring to Hondros and couldn't be more relieved.
It is poorly managed, and it is run by teachers and the school officals in a disruptive way. Run for your dear life. I had the worst nightmare in this school. They don't have enough clinical sites, and they are biased in their clinical evaluations. It is a horrible school.
OMG!! This is the absolute WORST school I've ever attended in my life! The teachers are young and very unprofessional who like to involved themselves in student mess.
There were at least 3 fights among students since I've been attending. The school has NO SECURITY so of course the students just fought until other peers or even teachers could come and break them up!
The dean is nothing but a joke! He is definately not there to help students! He bangs on desk when he can't get his point across and he doesn't listen to students opinions.
This school is soooo unorganized. Several students are to go on there externship in a couple of weeks but the catch is you have to have at least 4 shots before you can go, well, to school never once informed students at registration or orientation that this would be required!
They waited until 6 weeks before we're to go out to tell us! Not to mention those shots range anywhere from $85 to $165 apiece! Then they tell us, "if you don't have them you will not go out"! Does this sound like a school who cares about their students??? I'm warning you PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND this school! You will regret that you did!!!
Fortis college is the most UNorganized school you could ever attend. You can't trust this school for anything. I advise anyone to not waste their time nor money. I am in the dental assisting program and the teachers are the worst. They aren't even teachers, they have no previous background in teaching.
You will not become certified upon graduation although they tell you that you will when you sign up and pay all the money that you do. Teachers want to speed through the course super fast to have three weeks of sitting around chatting while you should be studying.
I honestly am speaking as a CURRENT student at fortis, please do your research before enrolling to this school. I wish I did. School is an important investment and I would hate to see this school get more and more people to invest their money into this school . You would get a much better education at a regular old 4 year university. It will give you a much better outlook of a REAL college.
This is a great school nothing is misunderstood. It's like they're training for the job market, you know to punctual, do as your asked.
As far as a job though, I have realized that in the paperwork that you sign there is no guarantee of a job, they do help you find one, but they cant make anyone hire you. I liked it though. I received good life skills and career skills.
After reading the comments below I was confused by the negativity. I just finished my medical billing and coding program with Fortis and I'm in heaven right now. Not only they provided me with a laptop and all my textbooks but they FOUND ME A REALLY GOOD JOB!!!
School is not supposed to be a joyride..You'll get what you put your time into. I studied my butt off to get where I am now. They provided me with Financial Aid and I loved my professors. They were very attentive to my needs and because I took the online program it was more convinient for me to make my own schedule.
I already reffered couple my friends to the college and they love it as well. I would give this college a big thumbs up!! Good Luck to those who are interested in getting a degree from FORTIS College!! I did!!
This program was a joke, the main director of the Aesthetics Depaartment was hardly there, the teacher that I had didn't even look the part for the program. I had spent more time just reading the material out of my book than someone accually standing in front of the classroom making sure the students are absorbing the information.
The parking at the school was out of this world, they had more students than they had parking spaces. The open door policy is also a joke because if you wanted to get in and make a comment about something they would tell you to come back another time with they joked and fooled around with the other staff members. Make sure you observe this school before you register and I mean sit in the classroom so you could see for yourself.
Great From start to end... and Placement to.. Thanks Fortis!!
