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.

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.

Maybe campus is better than online, but I would not suggest going to this school online at all. They promise you a lot of things to include help, tutoring and if you ever have an issue to help resolve it. From experience I can personally say this could not be more of a bigger lie on earth. Will start with problems in the classroom. You can call your student adviser team at any point for help and file a complaint or concern. This is true however they will say they will call you back and follow up, they never will and after calling them for a third time and getting the same answer I gave up. Second if your military stay far far far away from this college. I filled out all my VA paper work two months ahead of time before attending this school and all of a sudden a bill in the mail for tuition. Concerned I call the school and say well I have not received my house allowance yet from the VA and also I am now getting bills from you. They tell me something was missing from the paperwork and that they never submitted it. They also inform me there is nothing they can do at this point and I am stuck with the bill. Amazing how that works, anyway this schools curriculum is a joke as well. Can anyone tell me why one would need psychology and physics for computer programming? Last but not least if you do still decide to enroll into this school be prepared for every paper to be plagiarized. This is by far the most annoying thing in the world from this school everything and I truly can say everything in this school they will say you plagiarized even if it is an opinionated question that is your sole opinion. Ex. What is your favorite car color? If you answer black, blue, green etc. Congratulations you have plagiarized and you will get a zero if you do not change it or if you do not cite it. Plagiarizing something is stealing, you can not steal your own opinion. Good luck to anyone who attends, also take a look at the real facts online about how many students actually graduate this school and get a job in that field of study. No not this site but other ones the numbers are completely astronomical how bad they are. I should have done more research prior.

Its a scam. They take your money and then come up with constant accusations that you are not attending classes so the computerized system automatically drop you from the school. they should NOT be accredited by the government.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS FAKE INSTITUTION MASQUERADING AS SCHOOL/UNIVERSITY.

Ugh!

There is a total lack of concern when it comes to the students success. You are constantly pushed away as someone elses' problem and you almost have to complain to get help from anyone. This place is horrible for newer students.

The biggest problem with Devry is there professors. The professors tend to teach you as a equal coworker, they do not realize that the students are beginners and are not as experienced as them. I took computer classes, some professors set up iconnect lab and did the work with you so they can help you with the assignments, others just used skillsoftware for you to do their work. Problem is the skillsoft software never worked. It would not connect or the instruction to do the lab were never correct. So it took 3 hours to connect to the software and maybe 8 minutes to do the lab. I have also noticed most of the textbooks and information were outdated so I never even read the ebooks they provide for the class. I also think the tuition is too high for just average education. Average time spent of school work each week for 2 classes is 3 hours. Buyers remorse. Wish I knew before hand it was a profit for school college. The way online courses are taught they could just get rid of the professors anyway, most of them do not do anything but grade your homework.
