The FORTIS Difference

The “Fortis Difference” isn’t just a slogan. We’ve built our network of institutes and colleges around core values of connection, support, understanding, and high standards for faculty and staff. Students are not just “customers” at Fortis—you are valued members of our community. Your success is our success.


The student-faculty ratio at Fortis means class sizes that allow for personal attention, both in-person and online. Regardless of your program, you’ll have access to your instructors to ask questions and learn essential skills for your career. Our instructors are often working professionals in their fields, taking students beyond the textbook and offering the knowledge you really need to succeed.  


By enrolling at Fortis, you’ll have access to career resources: experienced, locally-knowledgeable Career Services advisors, connections with employers, career databases, and other resources. It is our #1 job to see that you get the support and resources throughout your program (and beyond) to make sure you are matched with the job opportunities you have earned.


Our representatives and advisors are here for you from day one, ready to help you with any problem they can—or work with you to find help from other sources. We understand that it’s hard to juggle school and your other responsibilities, so we’ve created a support system to help address all your needs. Whether you need financial aid advice, are experiencing personal challenges outside of the classroom, or need additional help with your studies, Fortis is here to help.


Fortis invests in our facilities continually, making sure our students have access to industry-standard equipment and supplies. Technology-driven libraries and resource centers in many of our campuses are open to students at times scheduled during normal campus hours.

FORTIS Online proudly supports members of the United States Armed Forces and their spouses.  We offer several benefits to service members while pursuing their advanced education programs.

Institutional and program assessments are conducted periodically by qualified examiners and members of the college’s accrediting body and/or by accrediting teams. The purpose of these assessments is to examine and evaluate compliance of the College’s programs, staff, and faculty with accrediting standards and state and federal regulations. Licensure indicates only that minimum standards have been met; it is not an endorsement or guarantee of quality. Licensure is not equivalent to or synonymous with an accreditation by an accrediting agency recognized by the U.S Department of Education.
