DeVry University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (230)
I was concerned about going back to school after many years since high school graduation. But all of the staff and professors are available to make this the best experience for my college education. I had been out of the workforce for nearly 10 years and was concerned with returning to work, but with my experience and education that DeVry has offered me, I will not only enjoy returning to work with my knowledge of my selected field, but I will have the knowledge to advance in my career choice. DeVry has helped my self confidence with the ability to know that I can do this. They are there to help, from enrollment, financial aid, technical issues , program selection and completion. This has been an exhilarating time. Not only giving me assistance with my education needs but they while staff makes it their goal to see me exceed. I'm so happy I chose DeVry!
DeVry University provides an excellent learning experience with qualified Doctor's and Professors of education. I got a free download of Microsoft Office with all the programs (and more) that I needed. DeVry has an excellent scholarship program and a list of other scholarships and grants you can apply for. The staff is very polite, professional, and helpful. I recommend DeVry to all students who want a quality education and to be well prepared for the business world.
I cant speak for other DeVry campuses, but I can speak for the campus located in Arlington, VA. I think it's unfortunate that DeVry appears to be looked down upon by others. I actually didn't realize that the school was looked at this way when I initially started. However, from my experience, the Arlington campus professors are top notch in their fields. They are retired VPs and Chief Financial Officers, retired pilots and generals, and overall, they all have substantial experience in their fields. So, students at DeVry at least the Arlington campus learn from the best of the best. Is DeVry overall as a school the best of the best? Well, it's not Harvard or Yale or anything. However, I think that it is unfortunate how so many reviewers judge the school and the people who attend it as those who couldn't get in anywhere else. Are DeVry's entrance requirement really relaxed? Sure they are, but that doesn't mean that the people who attend the school somehow have less than stellar abilities. DeVry students are a mixed bag. Some maybe wouldn't be accepted into other schools, but there are others who probably could. Overall, we have to understand that DeVry caters to students who are generally older, already have work and life experience, and who simply don't have the time or energy to go to a regular brick-and-mortar school. So, DeVry specifically works with this group of people. Some of these people have been out of school for years and maybe their academic skills may not be where they used to be. I think that DeVry has a bad reputation in some people's eyes because they are for profit and seen as a capitalist machine and because it has very relaxed admission standards. Also, sure their grading can be very relaxed at times too, but that doesn't mean that students don't put time, energy, and effort into making quality papers and other assignments. DeVry is just as much work as any other school, so I think that those who degrade it should understand that you can't judge a student by the so called image of a school.
The program itself was not bad, I learned a lot. I'm thankful for the degree but I was lied to about what it would day on the diploma. My specialty was biology, I was told it would reflect that, but instead said "general technical specialty." After I completed my online program, I went to the New Brunswick campus to speak with an advisor in career services. The woman I saw was amazingly unfriendly, downright nasty at times and could not care less about seeing me because I wasn't 100% on what career I wanted (the whole reason I went to talk to them). I arrived 5 minutes late, waited another 20, then when she was finally ready for me the first thing she did was yell at me for being late. She also basically yelled at me like a child for not bringing a resume, which I told her on the phone to make the appointment I wasn't certain how to make and didn't have one, and she told me she'd help me at the meeting. I wasted over an hour drive to see them for nothing.
Do not go to this school. They are scam artist. They are holding my transcript because I owe them money for a class that THEY withdrew me from without my knowledge. They also threatened to ruin my credit because of this. I will be able to get my transcript next year once this bill is paid. I told them that they are stopping my education but they told me to pay more each month so I can get my transcript quicker. I am one of the people now that will never finish college because of them; Cant afford too. Thanks Devry.
This university is tremendously horrible. I wouldn't even send my cat here honestly. The support from staff and professors is virtually non existent. The tuition fees are out of this world expensive. I was paying for nothing but air. If you value yourself please don't attend this university.
Advise if you are looking for good education do not go there, poor education no internship program. The level of student education very low, some of them should not be graduate from high school . If you are looking for degree, it is very easy to optoin
DeVry has been a great help. I was looking for a school with the family type of environment, and that's what DeVry U is. There for you when you need them, and tough love when you need it as well. I can truly say they have equipped, and prepared me to take the things I've learn, and I will be nothing but successful in the industry that my degree is in. I have learned soft skills that I feel other universities or colleges would've taken the time to teach you. I'm truly indebted to DeVry University.
I looked at a lot of different schools and programs before choosing Devry. I found that they really had their online classes down to a science and addressed multiple learning styles. The classes are challenging with Professors with both academic and real life work experience. I work fulltime and travel for my job. The flexibility they offer allows me to learn and interact from any where.
This school is everything I would want in a University. The staff is helpful, encouraging and go above and beyond. The online courses are easy to navigate. The professors are always willing to help and are quick to respond. The curriculum is geared toward ensuring the student learns everything there is to learn about the subjects they are taking.
