DeVry University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (256)
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.
I was in the Business Management Program with a concentration on Technical management The professors and staff here at DeVry University in Westminster Colorado are the best. If you need anything or just need to talk because you are so overwhelmed whether at school or at home there doors are always open 24/7. The Aspire program is the best because I used it and it is a great tool that DeVry has to help the students. Go attend DeVry University it is well worth it.
I am very very satisfied with choosing DeVry University. I have received exceptional professional assistance from everyone I came in contact with. I didn't know what I was doing at first, I was scared to take that first step. I did and the caring staff walked me all the way to graduation day. I am proud of myself and I am very thankful for the exceptional support I received. We can all do it with the right support, but remember you have to do your part!
Excellent program for motivated people with more than one thing going on. You get what you put in and more! The advising staff was diligent and responsive to my needs. The credits are reasonably priced. I chose Devry initially because it's an online school everyone has at least heard of. Now I'm happy I did because they made getting my bachelor's pretty painless and took all my old credits from Albion College.
DeVry teaches you the best tool you need for your goals. The professors are committed in helping you to the last effort of making sure you understand the concept of the daily topics and can apply it correctly. I have been out for 3 years for financial reason, now DeVry gave second chance to return by offering me scholarships and school grants that helped me retain my confidence to complete my degree. I am very close to receive my first degree in my life. I hope it lands me on my dream job. Thank you all.
The teachers at this university are great. The only drawback is that if you have classes and less than 8 people are interested in attending, there is no live class, rather you have to do the online class.
I am a veteran and used my G.I. Bill benefits to attend the University. I took a class back in May, I completed the class and took the final exam but since then I have been receiving bills from the Veterans Administration stating that I dropped out of the class and was withdrawn from the course. I sent in a request to Devry to have the withdrawal changed to a letter grade and was told that they couldn't' do anything for me. Now I owe Devry University and the Veterans Administration money for a class that I attended and completed. I have sent numerous emails and talked to numerous people about the matter trying to get it fixed and nobody cared enough to understand that I was wrongfully withdrawn from a class and just wanted to have it changed to a grade. I receive a small check every month for disability from the Veterans Administration and they are going to start withholding that money until they are paid back in full for the class that they paid me to take so I contacted Devry and told them that I did not withdraw from the class, I completed the class and took the final exam and needed the withdrawal changed to a grade so that I can show the veterans administration that I didn't drop out or withdraw and keep from withholding my disability money and forcing me to pay back money for a class that I should have never been withdrawn from. If your a veteran reading this do not use your G.I. Bill benefits to attend Devry University. Go to any other institution but Devry.
DeVry was okay. I feel that their education platform and system can be easily manipulated to coast through as some of my classmates did.
