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!!
This program helped develop my knowledge and skills. The classes were easy to manage while I worked full time. The teachers were extremely helpful and informative and the classes were thorough. The faculty helped me throughout the entire process and were instrumental in my success. This school has prepared me for my future endeavors and I feel confident to start working on my career. I recently got accepted in Boston University to continue my education with a masters in computer science and project management. I appreciate everything this school did for me.
I really love DeVry. The Professors are super awesome and smart. They really care about students. I have learned a lot from my previous courses. The class can be tough though. You have to put a lot of work and time into it. Not EASY to get a good grade if you are lazy.
I attended DeVry in Sherman Oaks, CA. I am a single mom, military vet, work full time and completed 3 courses every term in order to complete my bachelor's degree in half the time. I was able to complete the program with all A's and took both online& on campus. A few of my professors allowed my kid to sit in class with me because I didn't have a baby sitter, which I thought was awesome! Some of the courses were hard and some were easier than others. The professors were great, although a few weren't as hands on as others. I would recommend a lot of time management for anyone taking this course. I spent 14 months of studying, and had hardly any time with friends or family events. You have to be dedicated if you really want it. I landed a 3 job interviews within a few weeks of graduating and got hired. without my bachelor's degree I would not qualify for certain jobs. I would highly recommend DeVry. Great programs.
I typically don't write reviews, but I am currently fed up with this place and wanted to share my issues so others will not have to face the same complications I did. Throughout my 3 year stay in DeVry I was lied to by the finance department several times about estimates and the cost of upcoming semesters. Estimates would be $300-$500 out of pocket based on the schedule they helped build for me, but the actual cost would sometimes reach $2000. Along with that, the classes don't teach you much that you can not teach yourself. Realistically, if you have the motivation to teach yourself you can do it without being 80k in debt. Plus you have just as likely a chance at finding a job/career as someone with a degree from DeVry. This newest issue has shown me just how scummy they can be. My final bill estimate was high, I knew this going into my final semester, but rather than delay my graduation I went with it. After completing my final semester in April, I attempted to pay the bill online a few months later when I had the money. Each time I would attempt to pay they would cancel the payment and I would no longer have access to that money for 2 weeks at a time. After my third attempt I called them to figure out why this was happening and fix the issue. I opened a ticket with student services who told me "we will have someone contact you immediately to help resolve the issue." That was 5 months ago. I have now been called by debt collectors stating my refusal to pay has now moved the account to them. I explained my situation to these people and they agreed to allow me to call DeVry to move the account back to them who should have handled this to begin with. When I called to fix the new problem they told me to contact this number: 1(800)323-4253, as this was the phone line for students who have already graduated. After 2 weeks of waiting for a call back I finally decided to speak to a representative even if they aren't assigned to me yet because I am on a time crunch. After speaking with someone, I find out they aren't even associated with DeVry anymore and can't help me with this issue. This process has now been going on for a month and today I was told, by DeVry, who is completely at fault for this, that it has been too long and I can no longer be helped. They are also denying that I attempted to make payments at all even though I have emails from them confirming they denied the transaction as well as denying the open ticket issue 5 months ago when the payments were first being declined (which was confirmed open by the first woman I spoke to over the phone when the first debt collector called 1 month ago). Now because they refused to help and didn't accept the payment to begin with my credit score is going to be affected and potentially tarnished even though I attempted to pay 5 months ago. Overall, the school is a mess, but the classes will teach you things you don't already know. If it didn't cost an outrageous amount I would say it's worth checking out, but realistically you can learn the same stuff in the same amount of time without the school and all the complications they put you through.
I will give my honest opinion about this school which I am currently attending. Before I decided to enrolled I did my research and I found a lot of bad reviews which maked me hesitant about enrolling. Still I gave it a shot and I enrolled. It is expensive but for me its worth it. First of all all the program is online which it was what I was looking for. My instructors have on top of everything and they answer whatever question you might have fast. Assignments are graded in a timely manner and I had received the help I needed it from my academic advisor. The downside it's that the classes are fast paced and it is really easy to fail a class or get behind in your assignments so you really need to be disciplined, self-motivated and do your work to stay on track otherwise you'll fail. Devry it's a really good institution but it's NOT everybody. But you gotta understand that just because it didn't work for someone doesn't mean it's not gonna work for you. I attended my community college for over two years and as much I tried it wasnt for me the classes were really fast paced and there were 50 students in a class so I always got behind in all my work because I wasnt learning as fast as the others and I felt the instructor couldn't keep up with all the students. Thats my personal experience with a community college, but once again we are all different. With DeVry even though there is a large group of people in every class I feel I have more control and I receive the help when I need it. If you are interested in enrolling but are hesitant because of other people's negative reviews my advice will be to enroll . You'll never know if it works till you actually do it.
No issues from employers regarding my degree being form DeVry. I have had no issue finding employment that required an undergraduate degree. Knew several very intelligent people who were attending DeVry while I was attending, I also know several border line morons who have degrees from a "traditional College". So, I do not put much credence in the contention that only people who could not get into a traditional college attend DeVry. Additionally, I had no problems getting into a graduate program at a "Traditional College" with my undergraduate degree form DeVry. My last comment is for the people who profess to being hiring managers on this thread who state that will not speak to an applicant based on them going to a for profit college/university. I find it hard to believe you are in fact what you claim to be based on your ignorance in the process of finding qualified quality employees.
