Degree: Electrical, Electronic and Communications Engineering Technology/Technician
Graduation Year: 2013

I attended DeVry University for a Bacherlor's of Science in Electronic Engineering Technology starting in 2010, and graduated in 2013. I personally tend to be a student who doesn't require a lot of interaction or support from the instructors. For this reason my time was best maximized for the online/ Hybrid classes, which there were a good amount offered. In general I found the curriculum to be fairly rigorous, and well suited for students who had an interest in finishing their undergraduate degree as fast as possible. The small class sizes were nice as well. In general - the program was effective at getting me the qualifications to enter the work force, but there was nothing notably exceptional about the education. It was thorough, and got the job done.

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2017

This school is garbage. They prey on the weak and uninformed. They want to make money and that is the only reason they are there. They want you to apply for financial aid so they can pay for expensive employees and have limousines take them everywhere. I saw the limos when I stopped by the downers grove headquarters and a driver had a sign that said "devry". I have thousands of dollars in student loans that I cannot pay back and they take limos everywhere.

Degree: Project Management
Graduation Year: 2006

Above average. It changes my career for the better. I wouldn't be in my current high paying job if I didn't have the degree I obtained from Devry University. Truly a game changer. With the right skills and passion you'll be marketable and will be able perform the job.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

My Overall experience with DeVry University, Has been one of the best experiences I've ever had. I really love the hard work and dedication that the falculty put into helping those of us who want to succeed. I choose this school because I'm a very different type of student. My skills are hands on and practical so Devry was a great choice for me. When I read some of the comments that some of these students write, I ask myself, where do you see yourself in the next 5 years or even now? You know where I see myself ? Graduating with my Bachelor's Degree because I worked my ass off for it and you guys sit here and complain. Blame yourself for not succeeding. DeVry gives you all the resources why not use them and stop complaining. Reach out to the staff when there's a problem. This school is great for single working mom's like myself and for those who want a college degree to get a head. DeVry helps those who help themselves.

Degree: Computer and Information Sciences and Support Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2016

I attended back in Fall 2013 and finished in August 2016. DeVry University taught me that evil exists in this world and they prey on the weak and vulnerable. DeVry university is the evil scam that ruined my life mentally and financially. I see a psychiatrist thanks to DeVry University evil ways. I took classes that were mostly copy and paste from google search since, they use past years curriculum without ever changing it every year like normal schools would. They over price their short 8 week classes, outdated textbooks/computer programs that are 5-10 years outdated, and, they hire subpar instructors that don't have expertise in what they are teaching. Overall after finishing the program, It has been over a year and I have not found work in the field and DeVry was investigated for false reporting of graduates and other claims but, all I got from the lawsuit was 200 dollars and yet I spend almost over 100 grand for a bachelors degree in CIS that is pretty worthless. DeVry university should be named the Devil's Underworld. DeVry is EVIL. Don't attend DeVry university or you will regret it mentally and financially like I did.

Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2016

I was a student of Devry for a little less than a year. I was almost done with my certification when I had found out to take my test to be certified I would have to repurchase brand new books. The books I ad already paid for were 2-3 years old and would not be accepted. I also found out that to take my test I would I have to travel 2 hours away and I would have to schedule the date for the exam. I was told I was not allowed to move on with the program until I passed this test. After, all of this information was told to me 1 month before graduation I dropped out. Ihad one instructor that ignored everyone in the class for weeks. another instructor almost failed me for "losing" my report even when I proved I sent it to him multiple times he never fixed my grade and dropped my GPA. The only benefit of my experience is taking my college credits and going to a different school.

Degree: Computer and Information Systems Security/Information Assurance
Graduation Year: 1986

I attended DeVry (back then Ohio Institute of Technology) after completing 2.5 years in the SUNY system. I loved the small class sizes and learned to program very well. Already had all the liberal arts courses I could ever need and wanted to focus on the computer science piece and complete quickly, which I did. Most of the teachers were excellent. I got a job immediately after graduation and currently have a 6-figure salary. It was all classroom then and you had to work hard and attend all day 5 days a week, but if you put in the work, you would graduate with a good education. I have no complaints.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2020

I hate Devry University. What a terrible experience. You can call in and speak to hundreds of different people and get different answers. I have spent so much time and hassle sorting out student finances and WASTED so much time because one person would tell me something only to find out that what they told me wasn't true. I will NEVER

Degree: Supply Chain Management
Graduation Year: 2020

I've been attending DeVry University for 2 years now and thus far I have not encountered any problems with them. DeVry has helped and treated me fairly since the beginning. I haven't had any financial issues with them either and the instructors that I've had are very helpful and always responded back to me as soon as they could.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2013

I received a B.S in Technical Management from DeVry and attended Keller Graduate immediately afterward. My experience was fairly good throughout, until I was 3 classes away from graduating again. I didn't know DeVry was facing a class action lawsuit and closing some of their campuses. I was part of the suit, and have received a check. Anyways, long story short: DeVry allows students to retake failed and withdrawn courses up to 3 times. I needed to retake 2 of my last 3 courses, and was approved by the campus Dean. Then...the week classes begin, headquarters emails me that I am dismissed because those 2 classes dropped my gpa below 3.0 I transferred schools to finish my degree with Strayer and they took very few of my credits. I spend another $40,000 with Strayer all because DeVry would not let me retake courses as agreed upon. This school is outrageous after they get nearly $50,000 of your loan money. Absurd! They have done this to other students that eventually would fall short of their financial aid.
