DeVry offers small classes that allows for a closer experience with the instructor and fellow students for a more personal enviroment in the class room. Taking night classes helps with Instructors that have real world experiences and bring an example that is easy to understand.

Degree: Accounting and Business/Management
Graduation Year: 2016

I have applied and been accepted to several colleges before coming to DeVry University. After meeting with the advisors and professors, I knew this was the school for me. They weren't kidding when they said they would be with you throughout the entire process. To date, I am having an amazing and unique experience I know I wouldn't have gotten anywhere else. I would recommend DeVry University to anyone looking to further their education.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

This is a great institution for those that are looking for advancement in the workforce. They provide superior assistance in completing their program than a "traditional" university. In addition, for those of us that work, the accessibility is second to none. Nevertheless, no matter your future decision, make sure that you manage your DOE credit line, MGIB, and/or your personal finances properly.

Degree: Multimedia Design
Graduation Year: 2017

This has been nothing but amazing--DeVry staff have supported me throughout my entire experience. Any time I have stumbled they have been right there to pick me up, Heading into my sophomore year now, and still going strong!! <3 Especially if you are a non-traditional student, you want to enroll at DeVry. The way that the courses are set up allows you to carry on a full life as well as attend and excel in your studies. I feel that the quality of the work that we do is top notch. It's challenging and rewarding -- don't pass DeVry over!

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 1991

I'm ashamed to say that I'm a graduate of DeVry. I attended DeVry 1988 thru 1991 when the school was called DeVry Institute of Technology in Industry CA. The education was not adequate to get a job in my field of study. I graduated with a BS degree in Telecommunications Management & I'm not working in that field. After about a year of sending resumes & going to interviews I finally got a job in a computer chip fabrication company for what was close to minimum wage at the time. Sad to say it was the only job at the time where I did not mention DeVry. I'm at a better job now with the State, & I have not mentioned DeVry as my college. I feel that had I gone to a real college, my earnings would have been better right from the start of my job search. I attended DeVry because I had no where else to go or do. I was out of high school for a year & was working as a clerk at a grocery store. DeVry was a quick way to get out of being a clerk because I believed all the lies about the quality education & high percentage of job placements after graduation. My first interview after graduation was a real eye opener for me because that is when I realized that I did not have enough education to be hired for a job in the telecommunications field. The job that I have now is no thanks to DeVry. When asked about where I went to college, I'll say some other school. I got good grades but is was all for not because in the interviews in the field of telecommunications I felt very inadequate & stupid because I was not able to answer questions that I could have an answered had I gone to a real college. I did not mention my disappointment to my parents because I did not want to make them feel as ashamed as I did. I can say that I hate DeVry, but I can also say that I should have done my research before deciding to go to DeVry. I've learned to put my DeVry experience behind me to where I don't get upset anymore. I made many good friends while at DeVry. I'll just say that DeVry is a fraud, their job placement dept. is joke, & I will never recommend this place to anyone.

Degree: Business Administration, Management and Operations, Other
Graduation Year: 2016

I have not had a major problem with finances, but in terms of an education, I feel that I am more intelligent than more than 50% of the professors. Most have outdated teaching styles, are lazy, and use words to make you feel inferior. In reality, the past 5 out of 10 classes I have been forced to use the internet to teach myself. I sit through the lectures, participate in group activities, but the book and assignments are error ridden and teach you a very small amount. It is better to not even go to class and teach yourself using the internet and YouTube. I was drawn in because my first 5 professors were outstanding, and I learned a phenomenal amount. However, there is a very few selection of professors in your area and by the time you get to the meat and potatoes of your degree you are stuck with crap filled professors. Those with huge egos and who produce disgustingly, poor results. I wish I had known this before I had spent thousands of dollars in classes that can't be transferred. My advice: GO TO A SCHOOL THAT IS ACCREDITED. This school has burnt out professors who you will wish you could fire yourself. Never, ever, have I been more angry at people in my entire life. I have so much hate and anger towards my past professors because I feel that my money has been wasted. If I am going to teach myself it should be for free and I shouldn't have to pay. Screw DeVry University and their egotistic, demeaning, and overall horrendous teaching staff.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2007

Please go to a better school, I am not so proud of telling people that I graduated from this school. The school never helped me with anything despite the promises that they will assist you with job placements. Also the tuition is drastically high and the quality of education I received I think I could have gotten better education in Asia or any community college. Everything I know now is based on what I have learned in my Job nothing from school. I thought I was the only one but after seeing everyone's comment then its proven that the school .....you decide its your money your life good luck!!!

Degree: Agriculture
Graduation Year: 2015

Inspite of what you have probably read, this review will be more on the positive side. With these other reviews out there, you might be asking, "how could this be?" My experience began with a placement advisor that assisted me with all my initial exams, application paperwork, degree plans descriptions to help me better choose the path I would eventually follow. He even checked in on me a few months down the road. After, I was assigned to an academic team that has been assisting me since. Have I had billing issues? A few. Have I had issues getting in touch with professors, finance or my academic team? Sure. Everything to date has been minor or fixable and my experience so far with each has been acceptable. With me, my finance issues were worked out and professionally, I might add. Now, if I were to apply here all over again, I would check tuition rates and make sure my applications are submitted ahead of time, they helped me do this. Understand what it means to be a full-time or part-time student. I believe if you are talking only one class per session, you will not be a full -time student unless you can find a class that is 6 or more credits per hour (not possible). I BELIEVE the answer is 12 or more credit hours per semester is for full-time. If you are taking 3 X 3 credit hour classes and one 2 credit hour class, you won't make the cut that semester. Its not by how many classes as I understand. Anyway, I went with Web Graphic Design. For the WGD (CORE) side of the house, I have had a very pleasurable experience. Just like so many that have left comments, yes there are students that seem to only do the bare minimum or copy someone else's posts or do not participate with team events. WHO CARES, that is their grade. Unless proven otherwise, I will "assume" (quotes there) that the professors are professional enough to see through the BS and assign the appropriate grade to those SLACKERS (it is obvious what they are doing, there are some stupid people attending this college). Now, on the general education side of the house, my experience is not as high. I find myself agreeing with some of the other posts that describe a more self-teaching course then instructor led. There are course critiques, use them. If you don't then you should probably keep your comments to yourself, you have essentially become part of the problem. Make these educators do there job. Remember at the end of the day whose butt is on the line, not theirs. Last, it hurts me to read things like the school condones sexual discrimination, that was pretty bad write up, but why would someone put themselves in that position? I don't have the campus experience, wish I did to share. I have enough problems with 4 kids, 3 car payments, tuition and work. Summary- do the research, this is not a school to jump right into blindly, it is a for-profit (look it up). At the end, yes we have to trust what we are being told, if something does not sit right, ask someone else before you sign. So far, I have had a pleasant experience, I hope you will too. These reviews by the way, need to be taken with a grain of salt, consider the reviewer may have not been completely truthful. Consider they may have been one of the last students that were shocked when they were cited for academic issues and maybe left a negative comment out of spite. I will not say these reviews are false, just you may never know. Its not like we are arguing over a top ten school here. Oh, the high tuition? You knew it was before you signed? Not sure what the problem is when the first bill gets to you. Recommendation, have some money in the bank initially until you get settled (took me just under three months to work out my issues (thats is a sessions and a half by the way). Financial aid is usually late, remember, everybody and their mama wants it. Makes you wonder how many people are in that job? Plan ahead!!!!! Gees!

Don't believe the "Hype" I heard so many bad things about Devry University, before becoming a student, and I must say Devry is the best!!! They actually really care about you getting your degree and becoming successful. It is what you make it.
