I finish my Associates this session and start my Multi Media Web Development Bachelors degree right after. The coaches and financial services are top notch they know how to keep you going so you can succeed in your studies and degree. I had two hospital stays for foot surgeries. My Coaches and Professors modified my schedule so I could get caught up. Failure is not an option. In the beginning I was out of school for a long while, the resources that DeVry uses online got me up to speed in the first session. Coming from a school environment of little to no computers this online learning is the way to go. Your libraries are as close as your PC and you do not have to come out of your PJ's if you don't want to. I put a lot of hours in and had a few all nighters while researching and learning Web code but in the end the projects were successful and the code techniques stuck to be used on other projects. It's a great time to be in to learn and find your passion in life and with the knowledge you gain be able to do something great with it. All of my Professors are in the Web industry and know how to teach lessons learned about work flow processes. You get real world techniques and experience from the learning process. Hope you consider Derry we have the best teachers. You can also take classes on campus which gives a more personable approach and also uses a blend of online learning and labs.
The Health Information Technology program has helped me build on the skills I possess and discover new ones. I feel as if I am ready for the HIM field, and I have the knowledge to understand the needs of potential employers. I am marketable because of DeVry University!
My Initial 4 weeks were rough, but the Dean along with her staff were very supportive when life throws a curve ball at you. Through out the entire 8 weeks, which is fast paced, to succeed you need a daily routine. Follow the guidelines in detail, ask questions if necessary, developing your own routine because only you know you. The professors at DeVry will work with you and always remember that communication goes both ways. The professors teaching Technical writing and Business and Technology exceeded my expectations, then encourage learning by thinking out of the box and stir up the discussion boards in order to get the creative juices going which really helps helps you to adapt, learn from others experience then removing you from you comfort zone. To keep the pace, my Academic Advisor was always available to assist me in dealing with administrative that potential almost derailed from continuing my education at DeVry Long Beach. They are the jacks of all trades and masters of none, they are foot soldiers that will fill in the necessary gaps so that you can focus on school and if they do not have the answer they will get back to you as time permits. I have gone through many schools both onsite or online, DeVry is the place is where I will earn my degree after 20 years of serving my country. In the end my hard work will pay and with the support of the DeVry staff it is possible. In the end it is all up to you and if you want it so bad then go for it and reach for the stars. I switched from Computer Science Information to a higher level into BS in Electrical and Engineering Tech., this degree is math intensive, but who said anything is easy. Einstein was initially the smartest individual during his time, but what ever he did he became famous. Make sure you are committed and have the time to follow through your education. DeVry will be there to support, but you have to take the necessary steps to take the leap and succeed. Its on you.... David B. Current DeVry Student-Long Beach
The program was extremely helpful and it brought real world issues into the classroom to allow us to work as a team for recommendable solutions. Course materials were appropriate for each session exceeded my expectations and the professors were knowledgeable about the lessons and reachable in time of need. The student resources were beneficial to me when I needed a more hands-on experience, including tutoring onsite. No question was ever considered to be "dumb" the students even chimed in to help with resolutions. Besides, this is the reason we're in school to enhance and/or gain knowledge in a particular area.
As a DeVry University students, it is my pleasure and my duty to say thank you for all the staff, administration, technician, and overall the professors that guide and taught me important information and learnings that I will cherish and use for my job as well as my life. Being a student, I have a goal to attain with my patience, hard-work, dedication, and perseverance to accomplish my goal. This will help students to make their life fruitful and direct them to the right path. My experienced to be a students helped me to become responsible in everday life, whether I am having a hard time. It helps me to be strong, focus, and understand that whatever those trials that I may be encountered, I will be always bear in mind that I have a goal that I have be accomplished. This is my advice to all future students, that no matter how hard or difficult you may experience, don't just give up, just think that you have dreams or goals that needs to be completed and accomplished. Stay focus and think positive in all what you do in life.
I am always able to use real world applications which is perfect in terms of tying school in together with my busy work life. The professors are more than willing to help with questions and the staff are always more than glad to be of assistance in anyway. It definitely continues to be the most helpful, professional, and rewarding experience.
Worst university ever. Do not even think about applying. They will screw you, especially if you are an international student. And if you try to contact them after all they will do is ignore your calls and emails. Very unresponsive and careless school and staff. Especially the San Diego campus - executive advisors S. and D. along with other advisors are rude and unprofessional. The international evaluations department is careless and inefficient. In the jist of it all, they do not have any care or regard for their students and all they care about is money. Again from a former Graduate student - DO NOT EVEN CONSIDER THIS UNIVERSITY.
The Good: If you are an adult looking to complete a degree in hopes that it will help you get a little further in your career then I think DeVry is a good fit. If you are willing to do independent research when course curriculum or instructors fail you, then you should be fine. What DeVry Isn't: DeVry, although accredited, is a college that caters to the online student who doesn't have the time or capability to attend on campus full time and do not want the lengthy delay of going part time to a university while juggling work and family. DeVry is not a college that is going to provide you with a high level of learning. The curriculum is typically good, however material, labs, and assignments created by the academic staff are sub-par. One thing I noticed early on at DeVry was a massive amount of typos in core curriculum. These are the lectures, labs, and assignments provided to you. There are also a lot of holes in instruction. You might have an assignment or lab and not be able to complete it easily because you are missing crucial instruction or information. The good news, however, is that you can still get a passing grade if you turn in something coherent. I have managed to keep a 4.0 at DeVry and I am now in my Junior year. If you have a brain, you know how to research, and you can read, you should do fine. In summary, while DeVry is by no means the "cream of the crop" in regards to higher learning institutions, it is an effective and expedient way to obtain a Bachelors or Associates degree.
So I spent 4 years in this program and took out thousands upon thousands of dollars in loans...I am 16 credit hours away from completion and can not register for my final classes because it seems that they overcharge for the education that you receive and I ran out of financial aid. So as I interview with companies in the field that I have been studying I also get a lot of laughs when I say I am going to Devry because it is a joke of a school in the minds of the employers....The sadist part of it all is that my fiance is taking the same degree program as I am and the same thing is about to happen to her........ DO NOT GO TO DEVRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Graduated from DeVry in 2006 with an Bachelor of Science Degree in CET and landed an job right away as an Circuit Board Technician. Since graduating from DeVry I have chosen to take the traditional education route by earning an associate’s degree in Mathematics as well as a second associate’s degree in Engineering Science at the local community college and will be graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering this may 2016. For me DeVry was on pretty good choice, but I was unable to get an upper level professional position with just having a DeVry degree. I would recommend the traditional schooling route and save you a lot of money. A DeVry degree will get your foot in the door for most companies, but it certainly should not be considered as the final step to your education, but this was my personal experience and it will be different for everybody.... at the end of the day DeVry was an good starting point for my career.
