Christine Lewis - 11/21/2020
Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2020
"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!"

"Wish I would have read reviews about DeVry before enrolling. It is true! Some teachers are there for the money and that means they don't care if you understand the material as they have to move on week after week so a new quarter starts so DeVry keeps making money. Yes, I agree with another student's post "the syllabus is terrible" as every class I've taken has had some level of vagueness in the syllabus and general instructions. I have had arguments about it with my teachers and their answer is, "I don't design the course syllabus nor select the textbook." I am so frustrated and I am not even confident that this degree will help me to find a job in healthcare. Also, initially they gave me a number of classes I needed to take to graduate and then suddenly that number was increased with no valid explanation. Like a student previously posted, "there goes my $20 grand down the drain!." My review is not for being upset about bad grades. I actually have great grades but not happy with the quality of education I am getting. The only thing that I am upset about is how expensive this school is given the quality of education provided. Does anyone know about a way to sue the school? I would like to keep the degree since I invested the time, but I think the education quality does not reflect the financial investment."

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2020
"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."

Automation Leader - 12/11/2019
Degree: Technology Management
Graduation Year: 2008
"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."

DeVry University - 12/7/2019
Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2020
"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."

Degree: IT Training
Graduation Year: 2022
"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"

Degree: Web Development
Graduation Year: 2020
"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."

"I hated my online experience. I didn’t get to complete the program. I decided to take a different route at another Institute where I was able to understand the work much differently. I’ve been stuck with this huge bill! And there’s no way out!! Thanks for nothing!"

"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."
