0 for everything. You will end up teaching yourself the entire program, so I hope you don't like sleep and love frustration. The Professors don't know what they are even doing and refer you to the help desk for all and any questions using programs they want you to use for tests because they are too lazy to write their own. The professors will change due dates to an earlier date in Canvas without notifying you. (I thought I was just crazy until I started taking screenshots at the beginning of each week to prove it). They reuse all the assignments and directions from previous (and I really mean previous) classes because everything is so outdated the instructions & amount of points will conflict with all of the grading rubrics. But hey maybe it's not entirely the professors fault considering from what I have read from emails, announcements and assignments they barely speak English, if they do it's extremely broken English, and they never use spell check because there will be MULTIPLE spelling & grammar errors..But make sure you don't make any or they will take off points. -Also an average of about 20 out of the 50 minutes in a lecture will be made up of either silence, "Um's..." or "Hold on I need to look something up..." -After tests or homework is graded professors refuse to give out the correct answers or tell you what you did wrong because "I might want to use this for another class" and are worried you will give out all of the answers to someone else. ADVISORS WILL NEVER RESPOND TO YOU AFTER THE INITIAL ENROLLMENT PROCESS IS OVER. My "Student Support Advisors" have changed every 2 months (or less) and never respond to emails to the point where I had to go to the Dean to have my class schedule corrected because my second "Support Advisor" messed it up. They have messed up my financial aid to the point where I should have had $1,500.00 refunded to me to put towards my loans, changed to a $300.00 refund, to me owing $1,600.00 all in a period of over 2 weeks. I understand this school might sound tempting for a Medical Coding or Health Information online program, but don't let them fool you it's a complete joke. I graduate at the end of August and will never recommend this school to anyone. Best of luck to all.
I would agree with the other reviews for this school. The financial department is a joke. The professors dont teach you anything. The entire institute doesnt help or even care to help. All of my knowledge came from google or YouTube. DO NOT GO HERE!!
Would not recommend this school. They have not done anything but caused problems since day one. First, they are not homeschool friendly and will make you jump through a lot of hoops to prove you graduated, even if you have a diploma or transcript! Also, they will say and agree with you on everything just to get you in the door and start collecting the money for it. All advisors and financial aid staff will consistently say different things about what you need or dont need. No one seems to be on the same page! Some professors are great, friendly and to the point. Some are overly detailed to the point of confusion, they expect way more work than the normal class and they dont communicate well so your work suffers. I would highly recommend going somewhere else if you can.
I owed a debt . Asked for a payment plan. Wasnt given a timeline to pay the debt. Paid the debt in full. While paying the debt back devry made my account inactive and dropped the associated degree program. I was not notified by phone or in writing. Not knowing I was inactive I filled out fasa to return. Then I understood the degree was dropped. and I needed to register. Now I owe student loans and no degree. DONT NOT GO TO DEVRY. DEVRY DOES NOT CARE. I WILL NEVER REFER ANYONE TO DEVRY. THE Q WORSE SCHOOL EVER.
DeVry tries to advertise itself as a high end school that caters to the working adult. They do offer a decent amount of classes that can fit into a busy adult's schedule. However, the quality of the professors, online tools, and school portal are second rate. The school now believes that offering hybrid (virtual classroom) classes is a good business practice. If you are one of the unlucky online students in these hybrid classes, be prepared to struggle. The audio equipment used in these classrooms is of the poorest quality. No actual video, and the audio is broadcasted via the professors laptop. It is hard to hear the professor, nearly impossible to hear the in-person students, and impossible to see what the professor is writing on the board since there is no video equipment. Do yourself a favor and save your money and go to a school where the school actually cares about the students. DeVry just sees their students as dollar signs.
This school is great for someone who has a busy work life. The online courses make it easier for me to see what assignments need to be completed on a certain date. My only issue is that the classes only give you a week to complete the assignments and the teachers overload you with assignments during that week. I work 70+ hours a week and then have to cram in 3 essays, 2 quizzes and 5 hw assignments all in that week.
I am still enrolled but every time I have need Student Central they have been there to answer. They even reach out to me to make sure I have no complaints and have been doing good, as well as to help enroll me in to my next semesters. The course work is grate and easy to get through and I feel I have learned concepts from basics to advanced that escaped me in high school. Every professor I have had has been great with response time with any concerns or assignments I have missed. Also being able to go to class when I need to is perfect.
This is the worst school I've been to, It all started when they sweet talk to you about how fast easy it is to finish. It was great at the beginning, however the problem came when they assure me I would get financial grants. I hesitated to sign up to classes, but they assure me it wouldn't be a problem. Turns out I got my grants deny, something that wasn't their fault, but I told them from the beginning that I wanted to make sure I would get the grants. This school under my impression only cares about getting people in, communication was really bad, whenever I call the adviser that helped me from the beginning suddenly was busy, and wouldn't answer my emails or calls. Good luck, do your research and don't get convinced like I did.
I recently graduated from DeVry University with my MBA. In my opinion, the courses offered through the university prepared me to successfully transition into the business sector especially the capstone course. The capstone allowed the students to apply their knowledge in all areas of business such as finance,marketing, production, and research & development. I completed my capstone with Dr. R, he was very instrumental in conducting this course and very knowledgeable of the business industry. After completing my capstone, I was able to apply what I learned from my previous courses and learn how to effectively research and implement decisions to solve real-world business applications.
I will NEVER recommend this school to anyone. They do not give you the tools to succeed. They don't provide software for you, you have to use their horrible Citrix server that DOESN'T WORK!!!!! Then, when you call for help, they leave you on hold for 10 minutes and then hang up on you. Go somewhere where your money will be better spent. This overprice school is awful!!
