DeVry University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (250)
I began my journey with DeVry University in 2010. I am a student with special needs and the university acknowledged it and worked with me for closely to make sure that my academic needs were being met. Special accommodations were made as far as tutoring and extra time to finish my assignments etc. For the most part I didn't need the services, but it was comforting knowing that I had the same opportunities to complete my course work and graduate irregardless of my challenges. I recently graduated(June 28th, 2015) with my bachelors in Technical Business and will be pursing a masters in Business Administration with Keller Graduate School. I owe a lot to all who helped me from my academic adviser to the ladies sitting at the front desk in financial aid.
I enjoyed the schedule at this school. 3 semesters a year, classes are 8 weeks long. The only downside to attending a satellite location is that you end up taking a few courses online, since you must have at least 8 students to have a class in-house. The teachers are excellent. The class content is relevant and I was able to start up a job right out of college.
I took the Game & Simulation Programming program from DeVry and at the time it was in it's infancy. I think they were trying to iron out all of the details and gather industry connections to properly define and structure the program. So because of the timing I didn't think it was a great experience for the money. With that being said I was involved in a lot of meeting with the University to provide feedback and constructive criticism so I know they were trying to make it a success. So unless that effort fell short the program probably looks much different today then it did when I was there.
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.
I am a single mother of three beautiful children who works full time and attends college full time. DeVry's evening classes enable me to still work and attend class, in which my employer aids in letting me out in time for class on specified days. However, the flexibility of scheduling classes, the helpful faculty that wants nothing but your success is inspiring! The professors have actually worked in the field they teach and have real life examples that correlate with what we are learning. I am so very happy I chose DeVry in continuing my education.
I've been putting off going back to school for a few years. I was afraid of change and that the classes would be overwhelming. When I first walked in to DeVry I still wasn't sure about going back to school, but after meeting with a career and financial adviser I was more than willing to give it a try. Boy was I glad I did. I have only recently began my classes, but the professors are more than willing to answer any questions and go into as much detail about the subject as they can. The online courses are pretty efficient and just as detailed as an in class setting would be. I haven't been this excited about school ever, but with the major opportunities and all the support I know I can do it and succeed beyond here.
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 been a life changing experience for me; in fact, I am able to manage my time a lot better. My education does matter and I have the confident to finish college and achieve my degree. I never would of thought that I would be making A's and B's in college. With all the help that has been provided for me at DeVry University you can't help but to achieve your goals. I am so Excited!
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!
The flexibility involved with DeVry for a full time, working adult has been tremendously helpful. Some of my coworkers are a little intimidated and the managers at the company are impressed that I have the drive to continue my education. There are a lot of people that ask about continuing education and look at me as a role model / figure of success and often think, "If he can do it, I can too." I'm driven to do more in life than the bare minimal. Earning my degrees have enabled me to go from a baseline worker to management and hit the six figure range in pay. That is highly motivating. I spoke with one of my professors in my very first class and she told me flat out, "Finishing your Masters Degree with your motivation will take you to new heights." I am on the verge of finishing my BA and am staying for the Masters. I spoke with my employer about growing opportunities in the company and they said that if I earn my Masters, they will happily promote me as they would rather promote from within instead of seeking talent from outside of the ranks of the existing company. My future is set and I couldn't be happier. With education in the bag, I feel confident that I will be able to provide my future family with everything they need and live comfortably doing it.
