Student & Graduate Reviews (218)
I am very happy with DeVry University core curriculum . It made me ready for my future career field.They offer" Great Learning, Excellent Teachers" Overall I am happy with my achievement towards my education and I am glad that I chose DeVry University to pursue my dream of learning.
I took all of my classes online which made it really easy to go to school since I am married with children and have a farm to work on. The entire staff at DeVry was all helpful, polite, and understanding. It was a lot more work than I expected for going to school online, but it was well worth it. I alway recommend DeVry to any of my friends when they talk about going back to school. When I am ready to go further into my career, I will definitely go back to DeVry.
Transitioning back into school is made easy with DeVry's non-degree benefits. My Compass to my Career and SuccessU make funding my degree easier and introduced me to just what it takes to change. Knowing exactly what requirements are needed for entry level positions has refined my goals and set me on an upward path to success!
As a former healthcare worker I want to be involved in the industry so I have decided to take the HIT program, it has been exciting and informative from the beginning. I am so happy that I have gotten a mixture of regular courses and HIT courses from the beginning. I like that I have gotten right into the core classes without having to wait. All of my professors have been excellent. Easy to get in touch with and they have all known the courses well. The entire DeVry interface works amazingly, the student portal is easily navigated and there is always a real person that you can easily get in touch with if you do run into a problem.
Starting with the location, I loved DeVry's Keller courses offerings in my program. Flexible studies, cooperative professors, education style I like the most. University also gave me opportunity to work part time and made me feel that my role in the university is very important.
Online classes at DeVry are so much better than what I have experienced at other institutions. The interface of the classroom is more user-friendly than at other schools. The teachers are attentive, knowledgeable, supportive, very present and interested in seeing you succeed in the course. Course materials are also great. Live feeds or recordings of weekly lectures are available in addition to other videos DeVry has made available that can be incorporated into your online learning experience. Online library resources are available and you even have access to librarians when you need help finding things in the online library. Even the online math classes are interactive. DeVry doesn't make it easy to pass classes because they are not a diploma mill. DeVry does, however, make it easy to learn with how interactive the online class environment is and all the resources the college offers. This has been my favorite college experience. I was worried that being online would leave me looking like a number instead of a student and that it would be harder to learn. That is NOT the case at DeVry. I highly recommend DeVry and DeVry's online classes.
DeVry University is an excellent school with professional teachers who will challenge and stretch your mind. I personally love their on line programs, but the on site campus is very nice and the atmosphere on campus is great. DeVry University is an excellent school and I highly recommend it.
I am attending online classes for Medical Billing and Coding. My classes include learning about medical diseases and medical terminology and Pharmacology, so I can make better decisions in my Coding career. Student finance has always answered all of my questions in a timely and considerate manner.
I graduated from DeVry in December 2017. I earned my bachelors of science in computer information systems with a cumulative GPA 3.86. I did the entire course online. So far, I have been on several interviews and all have said that I am not sufficiently trained or there is too much of a deficit in my level of skill to perform the entry level job. The jobs applied for are entry level software developer, database admin, among others my degree states I am prepped for. I finally gave up and went back to seeking employment in my old industry (construction). The reason I chose DeVry was their outstanding job placement stats, 88% of people who go through their program obtain a job in their field 6 months after graduation. In life I believe hard work and perseverance are the keys to successful goal accomplishment. However, in this case I feel I got duped by a university that over promised and under delivered. I did my part and graduated with honors, however, all I received in return is $60,000 dollars in student load debt and nothing to show for it except for a diploma in a nice case. The worst part about it is DeVry representatives dodge responsibility by turning the tables and placing blame on the graduate for the lack of employment success. My advice do not, I repeat do not, consider Devry as a means to an end in your pursuit of gainful employment you may be extremely disappointed.
One thing that I can say about Keller Graduate School of Management is that their curriculum and instructors are legit. If you apply yourself, you will learn. I have learned a lot in the courses. In addition, their online portal is top notch and there is no cost for books as they are included as e-books or as paper copy for 10 extra dollars. Again, the ebooks are very convenient, and they are extremely high quality. To my knowledge, they are the same as top tier universities MBA programs. Again, the instructors have real world experience and bring that to the table. DeVry or Keller just don't hire novices off the street. Also, I can't say enough about how awesome and convenient their virtual software access is. You can use all sorts of programs like Visio, minitab, etc. through their free virtual desktop without having to download them all to your computer. I can truly say from experience that Keller has been a quality education regardless of how many naysayers there are. It is a for-profit school sure. Do they want your money? Sure, but don't all universities or businesses want your money to stay in business? Keller is expensive, but they're also not subsidized like your State universities. I went to Keller because being a vet it is very convenient in my area, but if I wasn't a vet, I'd probably go to a more affordable institution. However, it depends on your situation. I'm sure there are cheaper options out there for various programs with regular brick-and-mortar schools.
