DeVry University Reviews
The Good: If you are an adult looking to complete a degree in hopes that it will help you get a little further in your career then I think DeVry is a good fit. If you are willing to do independent research when course curriculum or instructors fail you, then you should be fine. What DeVry Isn't: DeVry, although accredited, is a college that caters to the online student who doesn't have the time or capability to attend on campus full time and do not want the lengthy delay of going part time to a university while juggling work and family. DeVry is not a college that is going to provide you with a high level of learning. The curriculum is typically good, however material, labs, and assignments created by the academic staff are sub-par. One thing I noticed early on at DeVry was a massive amount of typos in core curriculum. These are the lectures, labs, and assignments provided to you. There are also a lot of holes in instruction. You might have an assignment or lab and not be able to complete it easily because you are missing crucial instruction or information. The good news, however, is that you can still get a passing grade if you turn in something coherent. I have managed to keep a 4.0 at DeVry and I am now in my Junior year. If you have a brain, you know how to research, and you can read, you should do fine. In summary, while DeVry is by no means the "cream of the crop" in regards to higher learning institutions, it is an effective and expedient way to obtain a Bachelors or Associates degree.
Devry gave me the skills necessary to land an entry level engineering position, A few years after graduating from DeVry I obtained a MBA and I am now an executive level manager. If you are a potential student it's simple... You get back what you put in... an education from any institution is as good as YOU make it... I laugh at the posts when folks say a traditional education is better or DeVry somehow cheated them there are plenty of folks from traditional schools who are underperforming and blame their education or someone else....
So I spent 4 years in this program and took out thousands upon thousands of dollars in loans...I am 16 credit hours away from completion and can not register for my final classes because it seems that they overcharge for the education that you receive and I ran out of financial aid. So as I interview with companies in the field that I have been studying I also get a lot of laughs when I say I am going to Devry because it is a joke of a school in the minds of the employers....The sadist part of it all is that my fiance is taking the same degree program as I am and the same thing is about to happen to her........ DO NOT GO TO DEVRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Graduated from DeVry in 2006 with an Bachelor of Science Degree in CET and landed an job right away as an Circuit Board Technician. Since graduating from DeVry I have chosen to take the traditional education route by earning an associate’s degree in Mathematics as well as a second associate’s degree in Engineering Science at the local community college and will be graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering this may 2016. For me DeVry was on pretty good choice, but I was unable to get an upper level professional position with just having a DeVry degree. I would recommend the traditional schooling route and save you a lot of money. A DeVry degree will get your foot in the door for most companies, but it certainly should not be considered as the final step to your education, but this was my personal experience and it will be different for everybody.... at the end of the day DeVry was an good starting point for my career.
I was in the Business Management Program with a concentration on Technical management The professors and staff here at DeVry University in Westminster Colorado are the best. If you need anything or just need to talk because you are so overwhelmed whether at school or at home there doors are always open 24/7. The Aspire program is the best because I used it and it is a great tool that DeVry has to help the students. Go attend DeVry University it is well worth it.
I am very very satisfied with choosing DeVry University. I have received exceptional professional assistance from everyone I came in contact with. I didn't know what I was doing at first, I was scared to take that first step. I did and the caring staff walked me all the way to graduation day. I am proud of myself and I am very thankful for the exceptional support I received. We can all do it with the right support, but remember you have to do your part!
I am currently attending DeVry University online. If you're a non-traditional student who wants to return to school, but you can't figure out how to do it around a full time job and a full time life, I strongly encourage you to go to DeVry Online. It's exceptionally non-traditional friendly. There are a huge range of courses in just about every subject. I've taken everything from post-1945 History to Professional Writing and more. These classes are geared to work with non-traditionals so that we can get the education we need to have the life that we want. I also encourage anyone who is self motivated and/or needs to work while attending school to check out DeVry. You'll find it to be very flexible with work schedules and a family life. Professors of course run the gamut as they do in any institution, but almost all of the Professors I have been fortunate enough to have were terrific. Very motivated and invested in their student's success. Being online was no hindrance to contact with a Professor if I needed help. Both Academic Advising and Student Finance departments have been exceptional when I have called. I call at least every 8-12 weeks to set up classes in advance, and they always work with me to ensure that I get what I need and balance it properly with financial aid so that I don't borrow too much or too little. I genuinely believe in DeVry University as an institution that is becoming a strong leader in education for all people. Be sure to add it to your list of colleges -- even better, attend!
Excellent program for motivated people with more than one thing going on. You get what you put in and more! The advising staff was diligent and responsive to my needs. The credits are reasonably priced. I chose Devry initially because it's an online school everyone has at least heard of. Now I'm happy I did because they made getting my bachelor's pretty painless and took all my old credits from Albion College.
DeVry teaches you the best tool you need for your goals. The professors are committed in helping you to the last effort of making sure you understand the concept of the daily topics and can apply it correctly. I have been out for 3 years for financial reason, now DeVry gave second chance to return by offering me scholarships and school grants that helped me retain my confidence to complete my degree. I am very close to receive my first degree in my life. I hope it lands me on my dream job. Thank you all.
The teachers at this university are great. The only drawback is that if you have classes and less than 8 people are interested in attending, there is no live class, rather you have to do the online class.
