"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."

  • Degree: Project Management
"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."

"Best school and opportunity ever. DeVry strives to make sure all of their students are afforded the best opportunities education wise and career wise. They make learning fun and the degree is highly accredited. You will not regret choosing this institution."

"I have learnt a lot from DeVry university during my study, The professors are always ready to assist with rich learning materials whenever possible.

"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."
