DeVry University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (285)
Their financial aid services are terrible. They are not timely on tuition reimbursmeng. They forget to send invoices to your job to where you have to call them constantly to get results and the turn around time is 3-4 months just to receive it back completed correctly. Other schools turn around time is really fast. Devry does not care but will bill you immediately when a balance is due but not handle their part when it comes to handling.
I started DeVry at the beginning of 2018 and I am planning to graduate in 2020 with my Bachelors. I have had an awesome experience so far with DeVry. The teachers are always willing to help, financial was well explained to me, and it's easy to get someone on the phone if I have a question. The flexibility this school offers me as a single mother is bar none! I love it!
DeVry University, is underrated. I feel that this University deserves an around of applause. My personal experience was fabulous! I lived on campus when we had dorms at the Fremont, CA campus for 1 year and I loved it. I started my journey in 2015 and now 2.5 years later, I have my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. DeVry prepares you for the real world. This school gives you the tools to advance your skills and to practice your skills on the job. I'm currently, going for my MBA with a concentration in Human Resource Management management. To all the future students, don't let someone else's bad experience discourage you from futhering your education. DeVry University is a wonderful school and they really do care about the students here. Don't believe what you read. Come and see for yourself:)
I attended DeVry for several years part-time and completed 86 credits. My final class was online accounting. The program I used required that I enter numbers but the program kept changing it and giving me a response incorrect. I informed the Professor and he reset the program, when I tried again the system did the same thing. I did not finish the class. I experience multiple computer issues during my attendance. I am now finding out that my credits aren't even recognized as an Associate degree level. I now owe $60000 without acquiring anything and I am not able to afford nor can I experience the computer problems any longer to complete my degree. If you are thinking of attending this school run far away.
Expensive, but worth every penny. This school is very good in preparing students like myself for a career in business. Especially when trying to balance work, school and children. Also, combined with the technology aspect for advancement in my future.
I am reading a bunch of comments that geared toward more of complaints. It seems that people are always looking for ways on how others can help them instead of helping themselves. One person says he wasted 3 and a half years of his life at this school yet it took he or she 3 and a half years to get that they were not learning. Devry does offer a fast pace environment and if you can't concentrate and take your own time and put it into your studies then you will fail. In my particular field which is networking I understood the importance of getting my bachelors degree to prove that I was articulate, but also my certifications like ccna and ccnp to prove that I have the skills and knowledge to work in my field. In every complaint I read I don't see what he or she did to remedy the situation.
I attended DeVry University in hopes that a Bachelor's degree will help me with my future career. This is not the case. I graduated in 2014 with a degree in Technical Management with a focus in Healthcare. I am currently working in a law firm instead as an intake specialist. I am no where near the position at which my degree pertains to and I have been applying everywhere just trying to get my foot in the door. Oh and don't forget that I am in debt for a degree that is doing me no good. DeVry University was a joke, they didn't help me with what I should do after I graduate. They gave me resume tips and the rest is up to you. You have to network yourself which is fine but a little help would still be helpful. This school is basically in it for the money which is they are a for-profit school. Don't go here. It's a waste of time and money.
I didn't really graduate yet and to be honest with the way my aid is going and how they handled my situation I wasted 3 1/2 years of my life for nothing....... last year I was attending classes with no aid.... finally they told me I had to do something about it and so I did.... I had to get something called a Devry loan... in order to get it I had to get denied twice from Sallie Mea one from me and my wife after a few months I did the paper work I knew it was a credit check but was kicked in the gut after they told me.I needed a 620 credit score at minimum..... which I didn't have and the funny thing is they only work with heartland no other company......
I am one of those who believes that what you get out of a program is directly proportional to what you put in. My undergrad degree is a bachelor of science in business administration with an accounting concentration. I was still in retail for several years after earning my degree, but the degree was the key to me getting a job with a different organization with which I've had 3 significant promotions in as many years-- and in getting me into a good MBA program at a state university. My husband has a degree in technical management from Devry and has also been able to obtain better positions because of his degree. On the other hand, Devry is a for-profit school. It is more interested in making money than in being especially helpful. You will end up shelling out a lot of money or in a lot of student loan debt, and if you're fully online because you're far from a campus, the post-graduation support is worse than nothing. Being in a much smaller market than the counselor's (a top 20 market), the counselor berated me and made me feel guilty for not putting in at least 10-20 applications a day. There weren't that many non-retail openings in my area. It's a mixed bag, and there are a lot more fully- online programs at more traditional schools than there were in 2007. I'd think of Devry as a back- up option more than a first choice.
Please understand all financial documents you sign. The school quoted one amount, but increased their tuition every few months. Instead of paying around $55k for tuition, you will end up paying about $75k or more. Once you have started, it is hard to stop being that the credits are not transferable to a lot universities.
