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 a huge 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.

I graduated with a 4.2 GPA from Fortis at the old location. Recently went by the new location, They have a new Dean, Mr. Williams. Hope the students gain as much as I did. Grateful for my instructors Mrs. Jowers, Ms. Sheppard, and Mrs. Keel all very dedicated to the students. New staff seems as devoted to the students as the long term staff.

I contacted this place in order to get information regarding their medical assistant program. Let the representative know that I had a few questions to ask and was told that they are not designed to be on the phone for an hour and that I could view their website or schedule an appointment to come in. Definitely will not be looking any further into the school..
