Accrediting agency for for-profit school said previous allegations were unfounded or fixed, but it issued 9 other findings that Fortis must address. Erie campus stopped taking new students in July.
Fortis Institute in Erie no longer has to deal with claims, many of them anonymous, that jeopardized the accreditation of the for-profit school over the summer.
Its accrediting agency has determined the claims were unfounded. But the agency is now warning Fortis that it must fix nine new findings.
“While the Erie campus had findings that need to be addressed in other areas, the areas alleged in the complaints were either unfounded or appropriately resolved,” the private Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools told Fortis in Erie in a newly released letter.
Fortis announced in July that it stopped enrolling new students at the Erie campus. The school cited a landlord-tenant dispute and said the changes had nothing to do with the accreditation concerns.
