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 take into account 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 schools.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Fortis College-Cuyahoga Falls

Overall Rating:

I would never suggest this school to anyone looking into nursing. I attended for a little over a year, and have not gotten anything out of it. I took courses that I was sent home too early for, due to lack of supplies for labs. 3 semesters worth was basically a study hall, I was not prepared for the nursing courses ahead at all, nor did I have the guidance to even try and begin trying to teach myself. The school is a for profit organization. The cost is astronomical for such a poor experience. Accordinog to the board of nursing, they are only provisional. They have very low NCLEX pass rates. Which is what you need to actually begin your career. Moving into my first nursing course, we didn't receive our nursing bags until almost halfway through the semester, along with certain books needed to pass the course. I was lost as to where to get help in the beginning when it came to navigating how to use anything online. There is so many different online sites, that cause issues for staff as well. Its a confusing mess. The only decent thing about the school is very few certain staff members. I wasted so much time and effort into the school to be let down. Im moving forward at a different school.

I was so excited for my wife to start classes. She ended up starting classes everything was going well. then a few people dropped out of the class Now She have to either withdraw from school or find a new job and start going to the morning classes when I only signed up to the school because they advertise night classes..... My graduation date will be pushed back if I don’t move over to the morning classes I’m starting to believe they only care about the morning sessions. Why advertising ,go to work while earning your degree when it’s not true.

I called today for basic information because I was interested in attending Fortis College I want to know how many days and what's the typical times for the class schedule each week the original representative I spoke with was extremely rude and scolded me because I said it took me 10 years to decide on pursuing a career in nursing then I received a call back from a representative at the school who thought checking me about hanging up on the previous representative was more important than giving me the information I called for I certainly won't be picking Fortis College for any of my educational needs in the future both representative sound extremely uneducated and unprofessional

I called the Fortis College located in Cuyahoga Falls and I spoke with an advisor by the name of Stacy G. I was inquiring about the ADON program. Stacy was very limited with information regarding the program. The phone called ended with Stacy informing me to go online to the school catalog to look up answers to my questions. Calling the location was not helpful. Looking at a catalog online and still having questions will have you stuck between a rock and a hard place.
