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.

According to Maria I'm not taking my schooling serious because I rescheduled my financial aid appointment...."I'm cancelling your application because you're not taking this serious"...what??? Very offended. She's fake, rude & fiesty. I knew I should've gone to Cortiva. Oh wait I couldn't because after meeting Maria she pretty much forced me to pay the $25 application fee right after my tour of the school when I was only planning on just getting info about the MT program. But she made me feel obligated to start my admission process RIGHT then and there.

I am a Medical Professional that has worked with Fortis to staff the practice with which I work. I have found that the students are well educated and eager to begin their careers as a CMA. We have many students do their externship with our practice and have found many a permanent position within our company. Although the students are new they have captured the skills before graduation to initiate a long term career in the field. I recommend Fortis as a gateway to a career in medicine.

I have been a Clinical site for the past 16 years. My office (Perfect Smiles) in Totowa, NJ absolutely loves this program. We enjoy teaching the students when they arrive to my office. All of the students are highly trained when they arrive for their extern program. Anyone interested in this program I would tell them to proceed. The dental profession is a fun and rewarding career. After attending Fortis you will be ready to enter into this career and I'm sure you will agree with me.

I went here in 2009 when I was 20 years old. This school made every effort to make sure my learning experience was a good one, although I had an infant son at home. The teachers were all nice, although the admissions office lost all the paperwork they ever got their hands on. A select few in that office were nice, but overall, its a quality institution.
