I used to think Devry was a great school. They have commercials about all of these success stories on the TV all the time. That is what got me interested. The school work is effective and it is not 100% essays like some online schools. However, their communication sucks. They sent me an email stating I was missing my official GED transcripts. So I pulled them up on my computer and emailed them back. A few weeks later the same email was sent. Stating the same thing. So I resent them. That same day, which was 5 days before registration, I called them up and asked what was going on. They said my transcripts are not official because they are not sealed in an envelope. Because of this I cannot register for the next term's classes. Because of that I lose my GI Bill funding which I use to pay my rent. They could not take the time to call me and sort this out before it was to late. They never emailed me stating I had the wrong transcript. I would not recommend this school to anyone. The last college I was in had no problems accepting the same transcript. I mean do they think I forged it? I was in the military for the love of god how did I get in without my diploma? This school sabotaged my education and because of that I am going to be homeless. Well done Devry, well done.

Could be A LOT better

Tell us about your college experience.

The online courses that Devry offers were w good fit for me due to my travel schedule.

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

I would choose the same degree, but not Devry if i could start over again.

What advice can you offer other students?

Do your research. Devry is insanely expensive compared to traditional colleges which are offering more online courses.

I loved my school and instructors. Attending school online was a great choice that fit my busy schedule.

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

I wouldn't choose the same degree. I would go with a technical degree.

What advice can you offer other students?

Stay away from student loans. They hurt more than they help. My monthly loan payment is more than my rent. Try to find other ways to pay for your education.

Good School

I had a good experience with my DeVry education. The level of difficulty was relatively low, but I believe that you get what you put into this school. I graduated with a high GPA and was able to get an entry level job (also had military experience with degree). After getting a little work experience I was accepted into a Master Program at Penn State University. I think that many people have a negative perception of Devry, but it can definitely be used as a platform to other opportunists. The degree will not open all doors, but it can help you get interviews that you might not otherwise get. I was also in the military and got the discounted rate. If I did not have the discounted rate i'm not sure if I would have paid full tuition to go here, but in my situation it worked out.

DeVry Is Awesome!!!!!!

I am not quite sure why or even how some of these other people had the awful experiences with DeVry? I was skeptical at first as well, but you have to be in any situation. I have to say, I did my own research, I educated myself on several school choices I had, the tuition/financial aid process and so forth. This was an investment in myself, and I could not be happier. I had realistic expectations and knew that I was going to bust my butt in achieving my goals and dreams. No schooling should be easy!

All I could say, is that DeVry was an excellent experience. At no point did I ever feel taken advantage of or ripped off! Students need to start being accountable for their own education and not expect everything handed to them!!!! Educate yourself! Question policies prior to signing up, educate yourselves! DeVry is awesome! Thanks to them I am now earning $64,000 more than I started. All I could say is it was well worth it!!!! No childish whining from this end!

I am about to graduate with a Bachelor in Business/Operations Management. I have been attending Devry for the entire 4 years of school, and I have had good relationships with the support staff and the instructors.

Yes, there are some instructors who are not the best people person, but they know their stuff. This is a tough school to make it through, and it takes dedication to the task, if you want to get there.

A commitment needs to be made when deciding on Devry, because they are a fast track school. They will work with you if needed, in emergencies, because I had to have open heart surgery, and they worked with me on finances, and classes I needed to finish.

I would recommend this school to people who are serious about their education. If partying is part of your view of school, DeVry is not one you need to consider.

RIP OFF

The quality of education has declined in the past year. I have 2 Master's degrees from here and my husband was working on his Bachelor's. Teachers have gotten worse and worse, even had one who never responded to multiple emails and postings on a thread. It is almost $2000 per 8 week semester. Definately NOT worth the money!

Dear Potential Devry Students, I believe this school to have a good vision with poor execution. This conclusion is solely the reason I feel Devry is not worth the price you pay for it.

The recruiters here are either of low integrity or un-informed. The promises the make are not delivered upon and the support picture they paint for the online courses are also of serious opportunity. The Math course is absolutely 0 support, you must figure it out. So if it is not your strong point and needed to reach your degree, I highly do not recommend this school. You have homework assignments with the only "interaction" requirement is to post "random thoughts" from the assignments into a class forum. There are no video courses, neither live nor recorded with exception to orientation.

The financial aid is unclear and, in my own experience, rushed through with important information omited. When I was signing up for classes the individuals I spoke with were polite and attentive to my inquiries, however that impression was later not the case. When I called to withdraw from the current classes, I was met with what I first thought to be a disgruntled employee. After a few more conversations to attempt to clear up bad information I received, I was told "unless you have the previous conversations recorded, we cannot help you". I knew that if I was to withdraw from classes, I would have to pay a penalty, that I was able to accept, but the quote from the first individual was completely off and by the time I found out what the "actual" cost was, I had no proof.

I would hate to conclude that Devry has integrity problems, but at minimum the "left hand does not know what the right hand is doing".

I do not recommend going to this school, they do not follow through with their promises and their financial information & advice is questionable.

Great School

I attended this college for 18 months and from the beginning I did not encounter any problems. The admissions, college and financial advisors were very helpful and made my stay at DeVry rewarding. I had an Environmental Science class and I wondered what this class had to do with my college career. Well, I got my answer when I took a statistics class. I was glad I took the Environmental Science class first. If not I would have been lost in the statistics class. The student support services gave me much support during my time with DeVry. I was invited to be a Student Support Advisor during my senior year and it was my pleasure giving other students advice. All of the professors were knowledgable and helpful. One thing I know about this school and I advised other students to never turn in an assignment late without an excuse such as a doctor's statement. All of my professors were very understanding. If a student missed an important deadline, the professors will not lower their grade; they only asked for verification.

There is a lot of reading,studying and projects to do. You have to stay focused and disciplined. If you plan to make excuses and not take your education seriously, then DO NOT ENROLL at DeVry because you will waste your money. I am working with career services and they are helping me with my resume. Although I am a mother, and full-time employee, I graduated Summa Cum Laude because I was focus and very disciplined I worked very hard in the last 18 months and I know it will pay off. I posted my resume online and I received several invitations to apply with different companies.

Thank You DeVry University!!!
