DeVry University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (230)
Starting with the location, I loved DeVry's Keller courses offerings in my program. Flexible studies, cooperative professors, education style I like the most. University also gave me opportunity to work part time and made me feel that my role in the university is very important.
Online classes at DeVry are so much better than what I have experienced at other institutions. The interface of the classroom is more user-friendly than at other schools. The teachers are attentive, knowledgeable, supportive, very present and interested in seeing you succeed in the course. Course materials are also great. Live feeds or recordings of weekly lectures are available in addition to other videos DeVry has made available that can be incorporated into your online learning experience. Online library resources are available and you even have access to librarians when you need help finding things in the online library. Even the online math classes are interactive. DeVry doesn't make it easy to pass classes because they are not a diploma mill. DeVry does, however, make it easy to learn with how interactive the online class environment is and all the resources the college offers. This has been my favorite college experience. I was worried that being online would leave me looking like a number instead of a student and that it would be harder to learn. That is NOT the case at DeVry. I highly recommend DeVry and DeVry's online classes.
DeVry University is an excellent school with professional teachers who will challenge and stretch your mind. I personally love their on line programs, but the on site campus is very nice and the atmosphere on campus is great. DeVry University is an excellent school and I highly recommend it.
I am attending online classes for Medical Billing and Coding. My classes include learning about medical diseases and medical terminology and Pharmacology, so I can make better decisions in my Coding career. Student finance has always answered all of my questions in a timely and considerate manner.
I graduated from DeVry in December 2017. I earned my bachelors of science in computer information systems with a cumulative GPA 3.86. I did the entire course online. So far, I have been on several interviews and all have said that I am not sufficiently trained or there is too much of a deficit in my level of skill to perform the entry level job. The jobs applied for are entry level software developer, database admin, among others my degree states I am prepped for. I finally gave up and went back to seeking employment in my old industry (construction). The reason I chose DeVry was their outstanding job placement stats, 88% of people who go through their program obtain a job in their field 6 months after graduation. In life I believe hard work and perseverance are the keys to successful goal accomplishment. However, in this case I feel I got duped by a university that over promised and under delivered. I did my part and graduated with honors, however, all I received in return is $60,000 dollars in student load debt and nothing to show for it except for a diploma in a nice case. The worst part about it is DeVry representatives dodge responsibility by turning the tables and placing blame on the graduate for the lack of employment success. My advice do not, I repeat do not, consider Devry as a means to an end in your pursuit of gainful employment you may be extremely disappointed.
One thing that I can say about Keller Graduate School of Management is that their curriculum and instructors are legit. If you apply yourself, you will learn. I have learned a lot in the courses. In addition, their online portal is top notch and there is no cost for books as they are included as e-books or as paper copy for 10 extra dollars. Again, the ebooks are very convenient, and they are extremely high quality. To my knowledge, they are the same as top tier universities MBA programs. Again, the instructors have real world experience and bring that to the table. DeVry or Keller just don't hire novices off the street. Also, I can't say enough about how awesome and convenient their virtual software access is. You can use all sorts of programs like Visio, minitab, etc. through their free virtual desktop without having to download them all to your computer. I can truly say from experience that Keller has been a quality education regardless of how many naysayers there are. It is a for-profit school sure. Do they want your money? Sure, but don't all universities or businesses want your money to stay in business? Keller is expensive, but they're also not subsidized like your State universities. I went to Keller because being a vet it is very convenient in my area, but if I wasn't a vet, I'd probably go to a more affordable institution. However, it depends on your situation. I'm sure there are cheaper options out there for various programs with regular brick-and-mortar schools.
Devry has enabled me to finish my degree so that I can pursue a career in the field that I desire. Devry was with me every step of the way from beginning to end. Devry has classes that are online as well as those that are in the classroom. The classes not only teach the required course knowledge but they bring in examples of how the field of study is being used in the real world. The course also uses new methods to show the technological advances in the field of study. There are new ways of using material. The classes are not stagnate. The options for courses are also varied. The course that you want/need is always available. Whether the class is available on campus or online. At first a student may seem apprehensive about about taking a class online. You may be afraid that the material taught will not be sufficient knowledge. But it is more than adequate. A student just needs to get used to the online classes to be successful. You need to understand what you need to do to make the course a success. You can't procrastinate. You need to do the readings and the homework or ilabs right away. If you do not understand something this will allow you the time to reach out to someone (your teacher or the tutor) and get some help. The teachers and the tutors are always willing to help you understand what you don't know. I would recommend Devry to someone who wants to finish their degree but is not sure what to do or where to go.
I was satisfied with the courses and the contact I had with the staff at DeVry/Keller. Though I still have yet to obtain a position in my career field. I completed my Bachelor's Degree in Technical Management in 2010. I went back to school in 2014 and my academic advisor had me to enroll with Keller. I was informed that since I already had a degree with DeVry and was an Alumni I would get the Alumni rate to go back to school with Keller. I found later that this is not true and I had to pay the standard rate as if I never attended school because I didn't get my Bachelor's and Master's from DeVry or both my Bachelor's and Master's from Keller. I was not able to get my Bachelor's from DeVry and get the Alumni rate continuing my education with Keller though they are affiliated and though they both are listed on my diploma from my Master's program with Keller.
After looking into several different schools, I chose Devry University. Devry's staff have been extremely helpful and encouraging through out my courses. I really enjoyed my time at Devry and would highly recommend Devry to anyone looking to further their education online or in class.
I came back to DeVry after being away for 12 years. The representatives welcomed me back with open arms and walked with me carefully to make sure I was ready for the new semester. I'm back as a Senior and will finish in the summer, FINALLY receiving my Bachelor's degree. The classes are relevant to my career so while I take the classes, I can immediately apply those lessons to my job and I see the improvements. I recommend anyone who can to come to DeVry and receive that higher education he/she so richly deserves.
