"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."

"I have learnt a lot from DeVry university during my study, The professors are always ready to assist with rich learning materials whenever possible. I currently enrolled for healthcare administration program, and the academic staff has been very helpful in supporting my learning experience here at DeVry."

"Online courses were terrible at DeVry University. The professors were not responsive, and the responses I did received were systematic. Basically, I educated my self during this 2 year program and paid the school for their curriculum. My financial advisor was inadequate and incompetent to rindering my financial situation. I believe I waisted my time with this school and regret being present for this journey. Fortunately, I was able to receive my Bachelor's with a 3.2 GPA this year. Despite the craziness that's going on, I managed to stay focus and dedicated to my goal. For the amount of money I invested in this program, I should have registered for onsite!"

"I just completed my degree at DeVry in Business Technical management with a focus in Human Resource Management. I already had some college credits and completed 19 with DeVry. I was initially apprehensive about the work load because it was online, but honestly it wasn't that bad. I took 2 classes each term, which lasted 2 months and I didn't feel overwhelmed by the workload. During that time, I had a full time job and a new born my last 9 classes. I think the work is very manageable. I had to submit at least 3 discussion post each week for each class and usually would have an assignment to submit as well. I'm not the most studious person and I was able to earn a 3.72 Gpa. It seemed intimidating at the beginning, but once I got into a groove it wasn't difficult at all. I would recommend taking online classes."

"This goes for tech degrees... Look, a degree is what you make it from an online school. I used it to get my foot in the door with basic accreditation. It was good enough for my motivation and attitude to matter and drive me to the next level. I started as a engineer in software and now I am a director in the course of 13 years from getting my Bachelors. It really depends on you. Those that succeed have serious drive those who don’t , don’t. Would I have rather done the on-campus experience and went to a great school, yes, but couldn’t. That was my fault in some ways, not in others. However, I made the best out of it, and can’t complain much. You can do the same if you want it bad enough."

"I can say that I had always heard great things about DeVry University and that’s what prompted me to want to go. I had been out of school for over 20 years so I was apprehensive but ready. I chose DeVry!! I love it!! Love all of my professors , they work with you, challenge you, and push you towards excellence. You will not regret one moment. There is so much that I want to say because at 63, and going back to college, is a very humbling and honorable experience . You will not go wrong choosing DeVry as your school, you will come out with a full sense of accomplishment and desire to go much further."

"Devry and my SSA have worked with me threw some hellacious crap that has gon on in my life. My first professor was quite flexible and answered questions rather quickly. However my second professor seems to be ok at his job but not so good at working with students. That kinda irritates me. However I cant juge the entire school on his merits. The student support and financial aid advisors have been outstanding. The courses are directed mostly at learning on your own. So if your not disciplined fined a school that will hold your hand. But I have ADHD and I can remember to jump on and do my course work. 10/10"

"I have been taking the Web Development online course for over a year and it has been a complete disaster. #1 The course syllabus needs a revamp with better material and EVERY class should have lectures. #2 The professors are a joke and don't seem to want to do their jobs!!! I have sent emails with questions and got no answers or answers that did nothing for me and I also asked to have one on one meetings but had to go to the advisors to complain because the professors did not respond. This has happened a few times. After complaining about one teacher, the teacher in return tells me that they are working 3 jobs so it was hard to meet with me. I am paying a lot of money to attend this school and now with 2 classes to go I can say that I have not learned as much as I should have. I hope this can help other students to not make the decision not to go to this school or maybe by some miracle DEVRY will change their course and get more devoted instructors. 20k DOWN THE DRAIN!!! I have spoken to other students as well who have had the same issues so I know now I have not done anything wrong."

"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."

"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."

"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."
