DeVry University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (261)
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.
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 always wanted to finish my degree, but with a busy family life I never had the time, until one day I said to myself, it's time to make my dream come true. I could not do this alone, I had my family and fabulous DeVry Coach by my side. I said DeVry it's giving me a coach for one hour a week, oh wow, what a School? The coach would call me every week for an hour and help me with my concerns and motivated me until I was ready to go on my own. Here I am 3 years later, getting ready for my graduation. In my opinion, the cost does not matter when you getting quality of everything you need to make it. Thank you DeVry support team and Professors for making my dream a reality. I just can't believe I made it. I'm going to miss you and the great quality Professors. They always were so compassion and ready to do whatever possible within the University Guidelines to make you succeed. DeVry is definitely "Second to None". I have to also thank the recruiting team for their advice (even on Saturdays) and the finance team who was always making sure I stay within budget. And it'll not be fair to forget the technical team for always making sure we enjoyed the latest technology. If I had to do it again, I will certainly choose, "DeVry University". Thank you, Thank you for giving my family the opportunity to live better. This comes from my heart to yours.
I really doubt the veracity of some of the reviews here. Especially the extremely positive ones. I attended Devry both on campus and online parttime for several years. The last few years Devry has changed. The executive level has been replaced by non-educators who decided to remodel Devry's hands-on teaching style to a profit centrix approach that puts the focus on promise everything to get them in the door and get their money. To be brutally honest Devry is now a school for underachievers. Unfair I know especially to those students who work hard. But the reason is that pretty much every quiz, test and lab is available by a simple google search (i.e. search CIS 336 Week 2 Quiz). The material is not kept up to date because only the corporate offices can make changes to the course shells which they don't dedicate the time, money or course expertise to do so every piece of course material ends up online for download by students who don't have to think or work to pass the courses. This is not considered to be a problem and they refuse to discuss it since it serves the purpose of not loosing students through academic difficulty. It's a shame because Devry was a very good school but now not so much!
As a current student at DeVry University I am learning the necessary skills needed to succeed in my career. DeVry has an excellent learning environment that revolves around peoples busy schedules. DeVry provides the opportunity to evolve and learn at your own pace. If you are interested in a career for tomorrow then DeVry University is where you want to be.
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.
I was a little skeptical about doing online classes. Speaking with the Devry staff put me at ease and only then did I know I was making the right decision. My professors so far have been very attentive and have helped me understand course material. It is challenging to be in school again after 8 years and I thought I wouldn't do well. I am pleased to say I am doing excellent and hard work definitely pays off. Choose Devry, there will be somebody with you every step of the way.
Here at DeVry I have learned so much about myself. They teach you practical things. Things that you can really use. The instructors are friendly and very helpful. If you ever need help they are there for you. I go to classes on-line and they are still there to help whenever I need them. I get to program in all of the new programming languages. Believe me when I say that if you are looking for a great school to attend, you can't go wrong with DeVry.
I started my journey with DeVry University in 2001 at the campus in Alpharetta, GA. For some unforeseen reasons I was unable to finish my degree. I joined the Army in 2003 and deployed to Iraq 3 times between 2003 and 2012. While in the military I started back attending DeVry Online in 2009 and was determined to finish what I started. Since then, I have retired from the Army and on my final leg of the race towards my degree. I will graduate August 2015 with my B.S. in Technical Management. The skills and knowledge I have gained from DeVry will make my transition to my next career smoother. __ K. C. A. US ARMY Staff Sergeant (RET)
