So I call this college to see about an 18 month course, and they make me do these assessments. Ok no biggy... Then they pursue to tell me that for an 18 month course that it will cost 42,000$!!!!! And that my financial aid will cover only 11,000$. They then expect me to pull out a federal loan for 33,000$!!!!!! So I go down to the local college and find out that I have to pay nothing out of pocket, no loan that I will be paying on for most of my life and will have money left over from financial aid for supplies and such.

I began DeVry University Winter of 2011. It was supposed to be a 3 year program but it ended up being 4 years. There are positives and negatives to DeVry. They do have academic advisors that check with you every so often and help you schedule your classes. Their financial advisors also help you understand you costs and awards. Being able to be flexible in your schedule is awesome since I'm a single mom of two little ones. Though this was a great decision for me, it also proves difficult at times. Because it is a university, their costs are much higher. I think it is $600 per credit. For this reason, I ran out of loans my last year. Other than finances, DeVry offers loads of help and a flexible schedule.

Well... where do I begin?!?! Financial Aid Dept is absolutely ridiculous. Nothing they told me was adding up. So I did some research on my own, and what I learned made me sick. I kept calling them to get a straight story and they constantly lied to me. I started out as a "full time" student and when I called over a question I had over financial aid, and they told me I was part time. How in the world can they drop you to half time student when you enrolled as full time and doing school work as a full time student? Plus not informing you of this change. I had to submit a form of "student identification verification" which I went to my bank to have notarized. I sent it back over night by UPS. That was 2 months ago and it is still incomplete. I have called several times over this matter and I was told by student finance and my admissions advisor that the document was received and signed for but somehow it has disappeared so now my student financial aid will not be disbursed until the document is located and reviewed. This started in early February 2015, here it is almost middle of March, I have started school but racking up a big bill that I've already received a statement saying that I owe $1927.00 and I'm only in week 2 of school. None of this makes sense. My admissions advisor tells me one thing but financial aid office tells me another. I wish I could submit a screenshot of my emails with them but I can't. It will back my complaint up 100%. Financial aid office told me to stop talking to my admissions advisor and my admissions advisor told me that financial aid needed to get their crap together. I am so fed up. This is the most aggravating school and you cannot get the same story or truth from anyone.

This is the worst institution in the entire country!! Do not go here!! I attended in the 97-98 school year. They will take outrageous college loans on you. I am still paying on them in 2015 and I only attended for one year! They do not care about anything but swindling you out of money, and if you have any issue what-so-ever, it is your fault! I moved from NC to Columbus Oh to start school on Oct 31, 1997. When I got to the college to get assigned my dorm room, I was asked if I had any special request/situations that they needed to know about my housing. I told them I was gay and needed to room with someone who was ok with this. They assigned me a 2 bedroom, one bath apartment with 5 other guys (which they charged each of us $1200/mo rent). When I met them I knew that it was best if I went back into the closet. Three of them were basic thugs, one was a jock, and the other was a drug dealer. All of them were homophobes, this was apparent by them using the words faggot and queer in EVERY sentence. Everything was fine until just after April. I had met a local boy and we started dating on the down low. But one day I was invited by some lesbian friends of mine to go to a gay nightclub with my boyfriend and them. As we were leaving I heard someone behind me yell "Fuck you Faggot!" and I was hit in the back of the head with a liquor bottle. My room mates curious as to what I was doing had followed me that night and seen me leaving the club holding my boyfriends hand. They proceeded to beat the crap out of both of us. When it was all over I had a broken nose, two black eyes and a 2 inch gash in my scalp that required 6 stitches. I called the police but they told me there was nothing they could do because there were no witnesses, but they would accompany me to pick up my things at the apartment. When we arrived there, they had removed all my possessions from my room and thrown them into the mud, where 2 people were helping themselves to the pile. When the cop entered the apartment at my request, he arrested them for possession of marijuana and paraphernalia. Which of course they began to threaten to kill me, beat me again and so on. The next day I went to the school to inform them of what had happened. When I was talking to the counselor, she proceeded to tell me it was my fault that it all happened for "choosing that lifestyle". She offered to move me into a new apartment but without 5 other roommates I would be responsible for the entire rent of 7200/mo. Her recommendation was to go back to my apartment and "make nice with the roommates they had assigned me"! Unwilling to take my life into my own hands, I moved back home. This is just one instance of Devry being a crappy college. The federal government should not allow this company to take out loans to cover its EXTREMELY HIGH tuition. I cannot stress this enough..... DO NOT GO HERE!!!!!!!

Let's see, I started my application for this school May 2014. It is now Feb 2015 and I am STILL waiting to be enrolled. Had all my paperwork together,accurate and ready. No bulls*** from my end. I saw a red flag when my SAT scores "never showed up" until 5-6 months later. For a prior service member looking to enrich my lifestyle, this is beyond unacceptable. Then I come across this gem of a site and see I'm not the only with huge issues. If you receive TA/GI Bill, DO NOT EVEN BOTHER CALLING THESE PEOPLE. Many times have I tried to contact my personal advisor only to hear "he's out...he's not in the office today." What kind of an establishment claims to be for the students and "prioritize students first" by pulling such stunts and force me to try and change my decision to completely ignore the fact they do NOTHING to help. All this last minute "well you should've told us earlier so we could've bumped you up to an earlier start date." It's garbage!!! They fabricate anything to get your money. STAY FAR, FAR AWAY.

I have a Bachelors degree in Network and Communications. My first job out of school (with no experience) paid $52,000. A year later I changed companies and was making $60,000 and now just 3 years after graduation I am making $72,000. I have attend a State University and both schools are accredited by the same institution; I feel I received better instruction at DeVry. I am sure each case is different, but I am very happy with my DeVry experience. I applied myself and put the responsibility on my shoulders and now I am reaping the fruits of hard work.

So you had food quality teachers that actually spent time "teaching" you in each course? Not just "discussions" of at least 2 out of the many topics that needed to be "discussed"? You know when a question is put out there and you spend the whole week on that one question meanwhile the homework, assignments, etc have a million other questions that you haven't gone over. Applied or not more actual teaching by professors not students needs to be done!

A waste of time and money

Horrible experience!!! The first two classes I took were Finance and Accounting. The textbook the school chose was not very helpful; it had minimal examples and those it did have were often incorrect. Midterm and Final exam were based on the book used the previous year which had information that was not covered in my class. In the accounting class the instructor did not teach not to include the text for this class was terrible as well. Instead we watched videos of other instructors from schools such as "WaldenUniversity" teach the same course including examples. For this to be an accounting class I was amazed that the instructor never wrote on the broad once. Complaints are not taken seriously. If you're in it to learn it please do not waste yout time with this school. It will be a major setback and a waste of time and money.

BEWARE. Seriously stay away from this school. They do not know what they are doing or how to help their students and the finance department is a joke. I was recording a tuition benefit for being and employee and using financial aid to cover more classes. They somehow cancelled my financial aid, applied it to the class again in the fall session ( my FA was for summer) and sent me a letter about a post withdrawal after I had stopped attending and was no longer employed. Not knowing what this post withdrawal was I didn't know how to respond. They then send me a hefty bill in the mail and when I call they tell me I'm no longer eligible for my post withdrawal. Oh. Ok? So now I'm stuck paying money to this joke of an institution because they don't have the brains to call their students to explain to them what's going on. Brilliant way to make money you jerks.
