"I love attending DeVry University. They are very flexible with my work schedule and anytime I call with a question or seeking help their always there for assistance. I decided to go back to school in September 2022 when I was 29 and I'm glad I did! Don't get discouraged and think that you can't accomplish your goals because you can! and DeVry University is an excellent school for this!"

"A lot of these reviews is not something I can relate to. I am currently enrolled in Devry and taking the certification classes for medical billing and coding. I have only a few months left, so I have been through the most of the courses already. At the very beginning, I was assigned a "Student Support Advisor" and he has been my only advisor since day 1. I have seen some reviews saying they change your advisor every few months but that has not been the case for me. My advisor emails and calls me every time I have finished a 8 week course to catch up and see how I am doing. Personally, I work well doing online courses as it allows me to focus on my own. I work full time as a manager at a bakery and I still have the time to finish all of my school work on time. Here is one thing that bothered me when I was reading some of the reviews.... a lot of people are frustrated that this school prides themselves on "working at your own pace" but they are frustrated and eventually get kicked out for not doing their homework. Let me make this VERY clear. I WORK FULL TIME PLUS OVERTIME AND I STILL HAVE MORE THAN ENOUGH TIME TO DO MY SCHOOL WORK ON TIME. Ontop of that, recently my mother has fallen ill and I had to move back in with her to help take care of her. I STILL WORK FULL TIME, WITH OVERTIME, TAKE CARE OF MY SICK MOTHER, AND FINISH ALL OF MY SCHOOL WORK IN TIME. I have a weighted GPA of 4.50 which is very good. If you cannot schedule YOUR time better, then that is NOT Devry's problem.. THAT IS YOUR PROBLEM. I have requested tutors from Devry and within 24 hours I was always given one. They have always been extremely helpful to me. I have NEVER felt belittled or angry or upset by any of my professors, tutors, or staff members. Yes this program is not the cheapest route to go but come on... does anybody really think taking any form of college level schooling is cheap? I am enrolled in student aid and have 1 grant. With this, I pay anywhere between $100-$400 a month. Sometimes it is $0 because the financial aid covers it. The tuition has been $1,600 once a year. This is NOT terrible pricing. When you compare their pricing to other colleges you will see that this is one of the best prices there are. I WOULD ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND GOING TO DEVRY IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN MEDICAL BILLING AND CODING. IF YOU CANNOT SCHEDULE YOUR OWN TIME AND FORCE YOURSELF TO BE DICIPLINED THEN DONT EVEN BOTHER TAKING ANY ONLINE CLASSES FROM ANY SCHOOL."

"It was all good until you run out of financial Aide. They throw you under the bus. I only have one class left to take to graduate with Bachelors degree in Business Management. Failed a couple of classes. Had to retake. Financial Aide ran out. No help!"

"So. Figured I put my 2 cents in. Graduated in 2011. 100k debt and climbing (about +600$ every 3 months - beyond loan repayment has been on hold since covid). I see no light ahead on how to manage this debt as I still don't make enough. ... and yes I am very dedicated. What a waste of time & money. I was stuck in a warehouse for years after graduating. It is 2023 and still not in the field I graduated in. Note: I was apart of that huge law suit for being provided the false promise of getting aligned in the field we graduate in. I did get a settlement. 12$. Yep that's helpful to my school loan debt. What a joke. The experience for me at DeVry was no good and will not be recommending DeVry to my children. The materials they taught me, no good. The challenges this program provided me, well there was none. When looking for employment I have been turned down by many opportunities. 99% of the positions I applied for never even contacted me. If I were to guess, its most likely because they noticed I graduated at DeVry. In my next life I would chose no college over going to DeVry."

"Don’t go here! When asking for help the teacher got rude and told me to figure it out along with other nasty messages. It was my second class. The assistant dean agrees with the teacher saying she did nothing wrong and instead blames me. Gross to say the least! There was no repercussion on how she spoke to me and refused to help me. I changed schools!"

"Hi, I’m currently pursing my Business Essentials Certificate at DeVry University in Naperville, IL and today I just received notice that I’m on the Dean’s List for Fall 2022. I really am grateful for how encouraging my professors have been and they really want to help you you achieve your highest and best. What motivates me is for the girls or boys who have been told “oh you’ll never do that” or don’t have that much of a support system, I’m very very grateful for the support system I have my advice is focus on those who are your support system and for those who aren’t your support system stick them to the mud if they don’t see you for who you are they are very misfortunate for when you succeed they’ll fail and beg for forgiveness. For the people with bad reviews sometimes bad criticism is the best criticism for colleges and businesses as a whole to learn from so when you think you’re hurting a business you might but in the long run you’re encouraging and helping the business or college to critique the rules. Just think what motivates you or makes you so angry just enough to push you to the limit so you succeed but also have a little fun."

"I was excited to attend Devry. However Devry uses outdated materials like 5years old and in tech that’s huge. I’ve been in school over 1.5 years and have no option for an assortment degree. Though I have learned some I do not feel prepared for the work industry that I should be entering with a certificate in 5 months. They make you believe a certificate is good enough however all the jobs I looked at are requiring a degree. Very disappointed in Devry."

"I enrolled because the online programs were at your own pace and that is not true. I work 13 hour days 4 days a week and the weekend and Mondays are the only days I can catch up on my schoolwork. I was dropped from a class because I didn’t “participate enough”. I work a full time from 6:30 am to 8:00 pm and it is hard."

"My advisor is inadequate and incompetent to guide me through the educational situation, I have not spoken or heard from that guy so I just refuse to contact him. whom ever he is surely is not tracking my education and should be the first to compliment and give supporting advice on staying on Deans list because of him I believe I waisted a lot of my time with this school doing subjects I have done already and regret being present for this journey. I am not very happy at all but just keep pressing on to my prize and aim until I choose the other school Fortunately, I am able to receive a 3.56 GPA / make the Deans list twice this year. Despite the craziness that's going on, I managed to stay focus and dedicated to my goal of achieving high"

"Using devry had been a wonderful learning experience. There obligation to there students is held as top priority. The learning process is projected around the way your mind learns. And every teacher reached out to help study, or rather you need extra tim they'll take the time out to reach out and make sure you understand the subject"

"I came to Devry only because I was granted a scholarship and I had a military discount which was supposed to make my tuition free. I started the semester and was told to wait for my scholarship to clear in my account because it takes time. Fast forward to the end of the semester and I have a $1300 bill from them. I call them AGAIN and they tell me I was denied the scholarship because I am military affiliated. They never sent me a notice, never called me, never made any attempt to communicate with me. They swindled me out of my money. And, I found out later that the classes that I took are not even transferable credits. Don’t waste your time or money with them!!"

"This is in response to Mike's review from 3/4/2016. I also obtained this useless degree with over $20,000 in student loan debt. To my knowledge, this degree in 12 months was only offered from 2000 to 2001 (maybe 2002). I believe the first program was offered in the greater Chicago area (main campus for DeVry). My experience was exactly the same as yours. I received no help while in school as far as job placement and was even turned away when I walked into the 'career services' office. Upon graduation they were done and over with the graduates. This program was 3 semesters with 4 courses each semester for a total of 12 classes. We attended school for 4 hours every Tuesday night and for 8 hours every Saturday for one year. I would not recommend DeVry to anyone out there looking to obtain a degree in computer science, etc. In fact, I am not sure I would recommend any for-profit school. If you are interested in anything like this, go to your community college. You will receive a much better education and at a fraction of the cost. I can only hope now that our current Governmental Administration will offer some help on these ridiculous student loans we were 'tricked' into taking out in exchange for that awesome job that never happened."

"DeVry University has challenged me to excel in the class. My success depends on how much effort I put into my studies; I am consistent with my study habit. Our professors are mostly experts in the field and very knowledgeable, but not only that, they are helpful. DeVry has given me the chance to enjoy learning and apply it in the real world. I will finally receive my diploma and am in the process of applying for their MSA. Thank you, DeVry University!"

"Bad school. Horrible help. Would not recommend any one to pursue their education here… no way to improve the post graduation services. All around horrible experience. Even worse while attending the university. Please choose somewhere else to graduate. Not at DeVry you’ll regret it like I do."

"Devry is a scam, they charged me more for classes that I already took after i had already earned my associates. I ended up with a huge bill for no experience or advisement on the course. They just give pointless lectures for a large portion of the class. Most of the lessons they want you to learn on your own. Hotline assistance hardly helped either as they were not present most of the times. For my first time taking online classes, this was a really bad first impression. Made the the whole collage experience terrible. Stay away from this place, it's a scam to take your money"

"I thought the school offered a computer science degree. Devry claimed that they did have one, but my courses were 25% IT-related with business management courses that were requirements. I do not know who in their right mind thought business management courses have anything to do with IT or that IT and Computer Science are even remotely similar, but whoever it is clearly wrong. I was also ghosted by career services after the first meeting so I did not receive help from them when looking for a job. I ended up with a career unrelated to my major after 1 year of wasted time and money."

"I graduated from DeVry University's Keller Graduate School of Management with Masters' degrees in Network & Communications Management, Business Administration, and Project Management. The school provides students with the tools needed to succeed. It is ultimately up to the student to take advantage of those tools. The school is expensive. I was fortunate enough to have my employer pay for my education. The school's curriculum helps prepare individuals prepare for Cisco Certifications, CPA, PMP, and a host of other certifications that can yield lucrative careers. My opinion is that the school's relatively easily entrance criteria invites students that may not be equipped to handle the rigors of this environment. Those students will not survive at any institution and are often the source of the bad press the school receives. My overall assessment is that it is a good school but I wouldn't recommend going if you don't have a sponsor. The real world experience of the faculty is valuable but if I didn't have an organization sponsoring me, I wouldn't pay the amount of tuition required to attend this school."
