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.
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.
