This review goes out to all of my fellow Veterans and or Active Duty. Do not attend Devry university or their affiliates. They will take advantage of you and steal your hard earned benefits. I attended Devry as well as Keller Graduate School of Management where I obtained my Bachelor's and MBA. However it was not until my MBA when I discovered how much of a scam they really are. First I had them charge me for a class that I took under their recommendation and 5 months later I get a Bill from the VA stating I owed tuition as well as BAH for the class since it was considered transfer credits. It turns out I did not have to take the class because of one of the classes from my Bachelors Degree counted for it. However they went ahead and charged me for it and VA. If I had not fought it I would had paid back the school more than they made on the class plus fees. It took me almost 3 months to get this sorted out and after the fact instead of paying it back out of their pocket they simply found a GRANT (tax money) to pay the money owed. Sounds like Fraud to me. Next I was charged for a class from Devry that I had to withdraw from even though they got paid by VA for the class. Again they investigated and found that they were to fault so what did they do. Grant money was used to clear my account of all charges. The final straw came in November of 2014 when I got notice that my GI Bill benefits were not being certified by Devry anymore because I had gotten a D+ in one class which is still passing according to Devry and I can graduate with it but apparently that grade caused me to drop below a 3.0 which CUT my entire GI Bill benefits including BAH, Tuition and book payments. This would continue until July 2015 when they said I brought my GPA up enough to prove I was worthy. However the issue I see is why did I get punished for something that is not failing or wrong. I did not fail the class and it was good enough to graduate with so why punish be by stopping my benefits and then making me take out Federal Loans which I can never make enough to pay back. They manipulate the system so that they do not have to work so hard for their money. It is much simpler to punish veterans by not completing some rule so they can use Federal Aid which the VA will not back you up on since that means they do not have to pay out more money. They leave their rules open for the schools to manipulate so they can save money. They punished me for almost $15,000 of my own benefit money not to mention the debt they have put me in which the interest alone is going to kill me and my credit. They are good at wasting federal taxpayers money since almost all Honorable Discharged Veterans have a GI Bill and some rely on this money to survive. However they do not care about Veterans nor anybody else for that matter. Punishing somebody by taking their hard earned benefits away is stealing, unethical and morally wrong. I filed complaints with the VA GI Bill compliance Team, Devry and Keller Finance Officials as well as the Dean of Students. None of them see the moral issue they are violating. They discriminate based on Financial aid and take advantage of people that do not monitor their own accounts. They steal from hard working Americans and justify it by a so called Higher Education Learning Accreditation which makes them maintain a 3.0 or else you will lose your hard earned Veteran's Benefits and become so far in debt you will never get out.

I am a 45 year old who has recently made a big decision to go to school. I think that if someone wants to take the time to do this then DeVry is the school for you. They have made it very easy to know what you need to do, how you are going to pay for it, what your bills will be at the end of the journey, and they are here to help you suceed to do what you are capabile of doing. I am glad that I took the time to pursue this journey with them. I recommend that each student take COLL148 before any other class. this class helped me to see what my full potential is and it helped me to discover that I am capabile of going back after so many years of being out of school. I look forward to the rest of my journey and am inspired by the staff and students that currently I have interaction with. This was my review after taking just two courses. Since then I have taken many and still feel the same. DeVry is well worth the effort and money. They have wonderful professors, administration, fellow students, and a staff of individuals that are very knowledgable in their areas of work. DeVry staff help you see what you are capable of doing and are there when you need them to answer a question or solve a problem. They are all well worth every penny that I am spending on my adventure to get a degree that I want.

This school is not worth your time or money. There has been several times while in class I have heard people joke that they did not answer the questions on the assignment, however, they still got full credit. One of my continuous issues was trying to get intouch with my advising team. It took them a whole week to get back to me. The teachers do not necessarily grade your work on quality, it is if you turned it in. All Washington campus's are closing. After receiving the call from young gal at the office to make a decision on whether, I intended to become a full online student(I was a half campus/online student), or transfer to another institution. They claimed they would help with the process to attend another college. I choose to go to another college. It was nearly impossible to get a hold of some one at the local campus. They were all getting laid off! Word to the wise, this institution is not looked upon highly by employers. I wasted a year of my life, and hundreds of dollars. Attend this school with caution.

DeVry University has helped me see that it is possible for me to go to college and get a degree so that I can provide a great life for my family. Everyone at the college that has helped me through the registration process and signing up for my classes has been wonderful. I thought going to college was out of reach until I found DeVry. They made the whole process so easy. Thank you for believing in me and giving me a wonderful opportunity!

I would have never imagined myself going back to college at this stage of life, but here I am enrolled in an online degree program at DeVry University, mastering skill sets that lead to experiencing a life filled with excitement of tapping into personal potential on a professional level. DeVry's curriculum finding enthusiasm of accomplishment through all courses especially accounting and business management, which I would have missed if I just have continued with the status quo of nothingness. Knowing this endeavor to be true for myself by acceptance of placement on Dean?s list for multiple consecutive semesters indicates self-acknowledgements.."Here is where I grow to becoming the individual I came here to be"...successfully me!

I was almost ready to give up. Then I tried DeVry University Online. I am absolutely happy that I did. Considering that I was a single parent, working full-time, cooking, keeping house, and anything else needed, I had no time or motivation to go to school. The entire admissions team, advisors, and financial team were awesome. I was never rushed off of the phone when I had questions or concerns. I was always contacted to find out how everything in my classes were going, and I even had an advisor who actually listened to me and let me vent when it got tough for me. She believed in me more than I believed in myself and gave me motivation when I was not receiving it anywhere else. I must say, thanks to her, I am pushing my way through and am now more determined than ever to get my degree. There was even a time when I had a bad situation at home and wasn't able to complete a session, and when I called and spoke with an advisor, they put me right back on track, no questions asked, and did not make me feel less of a human being because of my circumstances that caused me to drop out right at the beginning of a session without notice. My children can look at their mother and realize that they can achieve anything in life if they want to, regardless of unfair circumstances that may arise. This is for my children.

I had already imagined that going back to school was too expensive, too complicated a process and that I wouldn't learn anything new. I could have never been more wrong. It took one phone call to DeVry and I've been hooked ever since. It was during that phone call that I learned I could finish a degree program without a financial burden (VA benefits), work at my own pace, and someone would be there every step of the way to answer any questions that I may have. Two years later, I have completed an Associates program, a senior in a Bachelor's program, have gotten paid to learn (VA and Yellow Ribbon), and haven't been alone as the Professors, college staff, and coaches have been there when I needed them most. DeVry has given me a competitive edge in the job market that I believe that no other could and all from the comfort of my home computer. Looking back I can understand the apprehension but looking ahead I can see opportunity.
