The wireless is unreliable, there are two computers, and there is not a printer on campus.

The workload is super light, and the curriculum is set up well.

No registration is necessary per term. We know from day one our general schedule and are told which classes we have when.

In terms of education, this school is excellent. I have learned quite a bit and am excited to learn more.

I have not yet had dealings with Career Services, but feel confident in my ability to find a job without having to utilize Career Services too much.

The facility is quiet small, but we do have a resource room where we can get a lot of information regarding massage and anatomy.
Recent Alumnus 2012-10-23T21:16:27Z
all of the professors are helpful, explain the materials clearly, and will repeat until you understand. they have a certain way to teach that will make such classes like anatomy, very easy to learn and understand. the teachers are really great!

Cortiva is down to earth and holistic. They care about you unlike the last massage school i atarted but dropped first week, which was florida college of natural health (which they were all about the profit and not the student.) Cortiva has a very caring experinced staff and genuinely care about there students

the student body is pretty average. the classes become very divided and cliquish rapidly. The dividing of personalities is very much encouraged by staff. It is an old trick known as management 101, if you keep the masses divided and unhappy with eachother, they will not form bonds and have a unified stand against the administration.

Computer Lab Provided – there is wireless internet available and a computer labe available for use. this is a small school so for the most part only 3 computers available and working at any given time. there is absolutely no way to print anything at the school it is your problem if you would like any printed material. find another way.

Cortiva Institiute Will Gladly Take Your Money, There Is Little Interest Past That. My experience with Cortiva Institute - FL has been very poor. At the time of registration you are treated like you are in a high pressure sales situation. Called often and harrassed by the admissions people until you agree to finally sign up. The financial aid situation is easy and the money comes through. The college is all aobut getting their money. You will not be told in the beginning of things that may make it impossible to be licensed in the state of FL, so be sure to research this. You won't be given the information until just prior to graduation. Again - the college wants it's money and it wouldn't get the cash if they discourage you from the start. You will not be advised of several supplies they will expect you to begin purchasing with short notice. You will not have access to any printed materials for class work, everything is electronic. If you want it printed, you need to pay to have it printed. Instructors work from a "canned course" type of situation. They do not move or waivor from this specific curriculum. If you attempt to challenge instructors you will often be chastised. There is a general superiority complex with the staff. There are rules set for students, if you are one minute late, you are considered one half hour late. You will need to haver permission to enter the class. However it is common place to have instructors late, or inturrupted by staff and administration, or general outside visitors for non class related things. The instructors will not be chastised for this. They are encouraged to pay less attention to the education you as a student paid for.
You as a student will be required to be ontime for clinic, one minute late, and you will not participate. The clinic advisor however will often walk in late, and be unprepared. If you attempt to discuss this with the clinic advisor you will be told - and I quote - "I'm just getting you ready to be able to deal with the real world. You will just have to deal with it." However do understand you as a student late 2 times will make you fail your clinic experience and thus not graduate. You will have to pay to re-take the course. Again - be prepared for that instructor to not be available, not be on time, and not have any interest in this being a positive learning environement.
The only reason I give this institute a D- and not an F is I was able to graduate despite the numerous short commings they have. If you want to attend, graduate, and be any type of successful person, you will need to have a very strong personality. You should be prepared to just take what they hand you and not ask questions. The educators treat you as if you are in grade school. They do not treat this as adult education and encourage discussion, or any other points of view.

Night Court – II knew when I started my classes what to expect. I would be take evening and weekend courses for one year. My classes would be from 6 until 10 pm and sat mornings. It was easy to commit to the process. I have had no frustrations at all.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
Donna Is AWESOME!!! Our school's financial aid person is Donna. She has made the entire process of getting the financial aid that I need quick and painless. As far as the education that I am getting being worth the price of tuition? I have got to say that you get out of school what you put into it. For me I have put much more than just the money, time in classes, and what it takes to just get through. In return I have made very good friends and contacts that I will cherish for years to come. Not to mention all of the things I can learn from these people outside of school. This stuff is priceless and well worth what I am paying. Tips? All you need to do is talk with Donna. She finds every possible way to get money for you.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
