DeVry University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (249)
I will never recommend this school to anyone. Teachers dont care, financial aid does not know how much money you need, either you are short or way over and get massive refunds (too much of a hassle to worry about sending money back). Academic Advisors register you for the wrong classes which creates an even bigger refund on your financial aid. And come to find out, most of their credits are non transferable. I basically had to start all over at another school. DeVry has been a waste of time and money. They do not care about their students.
The biggest problem with Devry is there professors. The professors tend to teach you as a equal coworker, they do not realize that the students are beginners and are not as experienced as them. I took computer classes, some professors set up iconnect lab and did the work with you so they can help you with the assignments, others just used skillsoftware for you to do their work. Problem is the skillsoft software never worked. It would not connect or the instruction to do the lab were never correct. So it took 3 hours to connect to the software and maybe 8 minutes to do the lab. I have also noticed most of the textbooks and information were outdated so I never even read the ebooks they provide for the class. I also think the tuition is too high for just average education. Average time spent of school work each week for 2 classes is 3 hours. Buyers remorse. Wish I knew before hand it was a profit for school college. The way online courses are taught they could just get rid of the professors anyway, most of them do not do anything but grade your homework.
I went in just for an evaluation about my future and school and came out a student. Everyday has been better than the last with experiences that I will treasure always.
My experience with DeVry University has been a good journey for me. Initially I was apprehensive because the presentation method, lecture, is not the best way for me to learn. However as I grew accustom to the curriculum style and all the resources that were provided to assist students, that helped me quite a bit. Also, it strengthened weak areas that I had, such as reading and investigating on my own; now, I can say joyfully I am stronger in those areas. The Career Center is not as interactive in helping students, at least me, to acquire a position. Yes, they have a list of company's that have hired from DeVry; and yes, there may be some relationships amongst some of the organizations, but there is no specific placements or at least strong interceding.
i LOVE THE ACCELERATED PROGRAM AND THE CONVIENCE OF LOCATION. I DO NOT LIKE THE ONLINE CLASSES. THEY ARE TIME CONSUMING AND I HATE TO JUST SIT IN FRONT OF THE COMPUTER ALL DAY.
Buyer Beware: For-profit Schools Cheated, misled, lied to and confused, Why did I have to be chosen amongst the vast abused? An over-achieving single teen mom busing to this school in the burbs, No direction at home, so I fed into their well-scripted nouns and turned them into verbs. The desire to learn and the drive to succeed, Led me into their chains and they sat and watched me bleed... All of my four years, long hours to earn A's and B's, But I had no idea I was a merely a subject of a corporate disease. A for-profit school who encouraged my dreams under false pretenses, But as the first to go to a "university" in my family- I thought I was jumping over new fences. How wrong I was to come up against this battle that they said would be securely covered- figures in-hand to prove this was for me, Over eighty thousand in debt and the doors slammed so quickly just one semester before my degree. I am NOT a drop out, I searched high and low for money to carry on, It's painful everyday as I realize all that I was robbed of for them to continue doing wrong. Now they deny my credits, my transcripts, but most importantly the dignity and opportunity I truly worked for all of my life. My dreams and future are shattered and my kids' livelihood scammed, immorally sacrificed. Thank you for the lies, the slick layout, and making me sign on the dotted line without reading and thinking things through, Thanks to your recruiters who made a commission-based living finding new victims to screw. One even contacted me outside of work- after he was fired for not meeting the quota they expected, Though this was a red flag, I was already so invested. I finally realized though, it's not even the degree that mattered most, It's the time I wasted believing in a school solely based on greed- leaving eighty percent of it's students societal ghosts. #DeVry #DeVryUniversity #ClassAction #Deceit #DontBuyIn #Run - #donottrythisathome #ListenUp #Research #cheatersgonnacheat #Poetry #Karma #DeVryReview #Scammers #Fighter #nevergiveup #inspiration #KnowBetter #DoBetter
Never without a job and this school made me rich.
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.
I was disappointed in one element of my educational experience. It occurred for me as if the school added classes that I did not need, and was structuring my classes according to a major that was slightly different than what I declared when I transferred there. Because of this, I took a few classes that I did not need, and ultimately, I ran reached the maximum for my student loans and was not able to complete my degree as scheduled. This was frustrating, and I was very disappointed.
The most valuable insight I have gained from my college experience is the realization that the quality of education attained is entirely dependent upon the level of individual effort put forth. The majority of my career-essential knowledge has been attained exclusively through on-the-job training;however, it was through my experiences in college that I learned that self-expectations set to a high standard provides a personal pattern for success and makes a person their own engine for the change in their life.
