Fortis College-Cuyahoga Falls graduation rate is below the national average.

51% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Fortis College-Cuyahoga Falls completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This indicator doesn’t consider students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare educational institutions.

Complete rip off. This school is designed to make money for the school, not educate people and get them a real education.

I started my education here when it was NIT in 2001, the instructors were great knowledgeable, and I was placed in a job on the day of graduation. In 2004 I returned to upgrade my Diploma to an Associate Degree, I only had to retake 1 course and my Gen Eds and was completed, again the instructors were fantastic, knowledgeable, and truly provided me the help I needed to succeed one on one, this is something I would not have received from a big University. I have been employed by Fortis since 2005, as an instructor, and in the mean time went back to college for my Bachelor's and Master's at another University, however that University accepted all of my credits from my education at Fortis. I am grateful for NIT/Fortis in all they have done to help me on my journey from Financial Aid to Career Services the experience was great!

I attended Fortis College back in 2011/2012, and I loved every minute while I was there. I was blessed to have such great instructors. All had experiences in the field of Criminal Justice, and were very knowledgeable about the learning material. Not only was it a great learning environment, it was also a fun environment. The instructors set a stage for the students to WANT to be involved. It was a joy to go to school whilst attending Fortis. All the staff made it their goal to see you succeed. All were very personable, and it felt like being apart of a family. If you had any problems (I rarely had any) there were countless of individuals you could go see and get them resolved. I loved how they had award ceremonies after each semester. They recognized all our efforts and hard-work, and it was always a great feeling to be one of those persons. The atmosphere was always positive. I've made lasting friendships not only with other fellow students, but instructors as well. If you are thinking about attending Fortis College, I encourage you to enroll. It was the best decision I made. I'm now attending a University to obtain my bachelor's degree, and many of the credits I received at Fortis transferred. So if that is one of your worries, worry no more.
