What are the pre-requisite requirements to become admitted to FORTIS?

To qualify for admissions, in most cases you must be a high school graduate or its equivalent. All applicants are required to complete a personal information sheet. During a personal interview with our admissions staff, we will review your career goals to help you find the right program to fit your needs. Every individual will be given the opportunity to tour the facility, meet with Financial Aid, and enroll in the next available classes.  Please contact your local campus Admission representative for more information on admission requirements.


Can FORTIS help me in determining whether I qualify for Financial Aid?

Yes, FORTIS is an eligible school under the Title IV Federal Financial Aid programs. Tuition financing plans are tailored to the needs of each individual student. Financial aid is available to those students who qualify. The Financial Aid Department assists students in the understanding of the application process and the eligibility requirements for various federal, state and/or private sources of student financial aid.
