Choosing DeVry online was like being swindled at the used car lot. I received so much attention in the beginning that it was overwhelming and unneccessary. After the first session though, the attention dried up and before long I struggled to get any assistance. It's like all of their resources are spent on selling you on enrollment and not on quality education. The textbooks are of the poorest quality and often written or compiled specifically for DeVry. The course designers are responsible for the quizzes and so your instructor has no control over the accuracy or fairness of this weekly grade. Grading seems all over the place anyway. This is probably the same at any school, but when everything is online, it's impossible not to notice that you are putting in more effort than your peers. I'm in my 6th course at DeVry and I can't imagine putting up with this for an entire degree. It will take a great effort just to make it through this certificate. Also, despite the sales pitch, there is no way to take this education seriously and work full time. There is far too much of a time commitment required to get a decent grade. Of course, at this school earning a good grade does not mean you have learned much. But you sure have spent a lot of money!
Starting out at DeVry was a smooth transition. From applying getting the documents required, to day one of class. Yes, I had to take out loans and had help with grants, but the overall experience was outstanding. Even the transition from CA campus to CO campus was smooth. Regarding the classes them self. You have to work for the grade you want. It is a fast pace education, as it is only 8 weeks vs your normal 16 weeks. It is very easy to fail a class if your mind is not focused. I myself experienced a failing class more than once. One of my biggest dislikes is they let go multiple teachers that actually enjoyed teaching and hired PhD instructors that could not teach the course or provide any real world to the course. You ask for help and they became very defensive, I even got so frustrated I called them a babysitter looking for a paycheck. In the end wishing I got more learning in my core classes. I still graduated with a 3.7 gpa.
I started this school July 9th 2018..Worse mistake ot my life.. They advisor talks to you like this the best school, you making the right choice.. This school is .only hungry.. That's all I'm going to say about it.. just know you will not trick me like you doing other ppl.. 487 per credit outs gor a certificate. Sept 1 needs to hurry cause I'm not coming back.
DeVry University is not very compatible for International Students as their core classes are online, which makes it very difficult to maintain your status and they do not track your online/on-campus classes very well as I had to find out the hardway. Their delivery of education is also questionable and could be improved. If you are looking to receive a high grade easily with little effort, than this is the place for you. However, if you are serious and would like to learn something, then I would recommend going elsewhere. Best of luck.
I'm going to keep this brief. I transferred from my on campus tech school to Devry after my I accepted a full time job that didn't allow me to go to physical classes. It's true, many of the course material is outdated and the material can be googled . However, I did find many of the information useful and up to date. Networking is constantly changing, so that's important. The teachers usually work with your schedule for the most part. Now here's my problem with Devry. unfortunately I failed that last two classes before graduation. I had too much going on and I fell off track. Devry called me constantly attempting to collect a $3,000 balance and even told me interest (just as much as a credit card) with be tacked on if I did not pay within a certain time. What kind of school does this to its students. So now here I am, 5 credits from receiving my diploma paying a Devry account that went into collections because I didn't have the $3000 up front or the $300 monthly payment plan they told me I could afford. The courses at Devry are absolutely over priced for the overall quality of the school. They do have some benefits but its not worth it to me. After I pay my balance in full, I'll be finishing the remainder of my degree elsewhere if possible. This school nothing but a business in it for the money. I don't believe they genuinely care about their students. No, I would not recommend them.
All this "University" wants is your money! I enrolled and was told that I would be able to do certain things when it came time to do the "hands on training" then just as I'm about to take that last part, they decided to change the rules, even going so far as to make me take a class that I had already passed again by telling me if I didn't meet their requirements in time I would have to start the entire program all over again to earn my degree! It is a scam school and I cannot find a job that will be able to make ends meet and afford paying back the loans that were sold to Navient. Navient doubled what my original loans were for and since interest is tacked on daily there's no way I will ever be able to get enough to pay them and live a normal life. Do not attend this school!
DeVry University provides the instructors and the platform to learn. Their communication is excellent in my opinion. I make a point to talk to academic and finance weekly. If you are willing to read a lot, research a lot, write online almost daily, study daily then you will succeed. This school isnt going to spoon feed you, no school will. This school isnt a babysitter. It is our obligation to be informed and know what we are making a decision to do. I work full time with a family and additional obligations. I stay up late almost every evening to study and complete assigned work. Financial aid department is very helpful. I have received pell grant each semester. It is properly disbursed on time or early if I ask. I have failed to the point of suspension with the school. I had to be accepted again and make a rigid plan to succeed. It was my fault that I failed, it is easy to get behind on work if not trying. Each class you have to get 1,000 points to earn a 100% in class. If you do not submit a 40 point assignment, your grade will automatically be 96% max. There is 8 week terms so if a few assignments are missed, failing is very real. You better be ready to succeed no matter what. You are ultimately responsible for you. You need to use he tools available to succeed. You need to go over everything with advisors before agreeing to anything. There is no hidden fees. Everything is explained. You have to listen and take notes.
I attended Devry to pursue my Bachelors Degree, graduated in 2018 with my Bachelors. The BEST experience possible nothing but positivity in my book. Everything in your Student Portal. Masters program has begun. This school has made an impact on my life
This has to be the worst school Ive ever had to deal with. I went only half a semester because theyre ere screwing me so bad on money for such a BULL crap education. I felt like I wasnt learning anything. One day my financial aid paid for things and then in the end it didnt and they were trying to make me pay out of pocket. There was a $300 student charge I was responsible for paying out of pocket that I was never told of and magically financial aid paid for it. I have gone back and forth with this school for so long it has been the worst headache of my life.
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.
