"I am a 45 year old who has recently made a big decision to go to school. I think that if someone wants to take the time to do this then DeVry is the school for you. They have made it very easy to know what you need to do, how you are going to pay for it, what your bills will be at the end of the journey, and they are here to help you suceed to do what you are capabile of doing. I am glad that I took the time to pursue this journey with them. I recommend that each student take COLL148 before any other class. this class helped me to see what my full potential is and it helped me to discover that I am capabile of going back after so many years of being out of school. I look forward to the rest of my journey and am inspired by the staff and students that currently I have interaction with. This was my review after taking just two courses. Since then I have taken many and still feel the same. DeVry is well worth the effort and money. They have wonderful professors, administration, fellow students, and a staff of individuals that are very knowledgable in their areas of work. DeVry staff help you see what you are capable of doing and are there when you need them to answer a question or solve a problem. They are all well worth every penny that I am spending on my adventure to get a degree that I want."

"This school is not worth your time or money. There has been several times while in class I have heard people joke that they did not answer the questions on the assignment, however, they still got full credit. One of my continuous issues was trying to get intouch with my advising team. It took them a whole week to get back to me. The teachers do not necessarily grade your work on quality, it is if you turned it in. All Washington campus's are closing. After receiving the call from young gal at the office to make a decision on whether, I intended to become a full online student(I was a half campus/online student), or transfer to another institution. They claimed they would help with the process to attend another college. I choose to go to another college. It was nearly impossible to get a hold of some one at the local campus. They were all getting laid off! Word to the wise, this institution is not looked upon highly by employers. I wasted a year of my life, and hundreds of dollars. Attend this school with caution."

"DeVry offers small classes that allows for a closer experience with the instructor and fellow students for a more personal enviroment in the class room. Taking night classes helps with Instructors that have real world experiences and bring an example that is easy to understand."

"This is a great institution for those that are looking for advancement in the workforce. They provide superior assistance in completing their program than a "traditional" university. In addition, for those of us that work, the accessibility is second to none. Nevertheless, no matter your future decision, make sure that you manage your DOE credit line, MGIB, and/or your personal finances properly."

"I have not had a major problem with finances, but in terms of an education, I feel that I am more intelligent than more than 50% of the professors. Most have outdated teaching styles, are lazy, and use words to make you feel inferior. In reality, the past 5 out of 10 classes I have been forced to use the internet to teach myself. I sit through the lectures, participate in group activities, but the book and assignments are error ridden and teach you a very small amount. It is better to not even go to class and teach yourself using the internet and YouTube. I was drawn in because my first 5 professors were outstanding, and I learned a phenomenal amount. However, there is a very few selection of professors in your area and by the time you get to the meat and potatoes of your degree you are stuck with crap filled professors. Those with huge egos and who produce disgustingly, poor results. I wish I had known this before I had spent thousands of dollars in classes that can't be transferred. My advice: GO TO A SCHOOL THAT IS ACCREDITED. This school has burnt out professors who you will wish you could fire yourself. Never, ever, have I been more angry at people in my entire life. I have so much hate and anger towards my past professors because I feel that my money has been wasted. If I am going to teach myself it should be for free and I shouldn't have to pay. Screw DeVry University and their egotistic, demeaning, and overall horrendous teaching staff."

"Despite it's dubious reputation as a for-profit school, my experience at the DeVry University Federal Way, Washington campus was very good. Admission is easy but the academic standards are high and the curriculum was challenging. The Federal Way campus is a small community so class sizes are small. The professors all had industry experience and want the students to succeed. Building a rapport and professional relationship is easy. The degree programs are primarily technology related so if you are interested in that field, DeVry is not a bad way to go. It is an accredited university. When I attended, the career services department wasn't fully established so I didn't receive much help with finding a job but it has improved considerably since that time."

"This is a University that wipes you out. It is so expensive. They tell you will finish in 3 yrs but it takes way more than 3 yrs. By the time you graduate you will owe over 70,000. I am still paying my student loan and it is 2015 now. Also they will tell you they will place you or find you a good job and that is not a true statement."

"I began DeVry University Winter of 2011. It was supposed to be a 3 year program but it ended up being 4 years. There are positives and negatives to DeVry. They do have academic advisors that check with you every so often and help you schedule your classes. Their financial advisors also help you understand you costs and awards. Being able to be flexible in your schedule is awesome since I'm a single mom of two little ones. Though this was a great decision for me, it also proves difficult at times. Because it is a university, their costs are much higher. I think it is $600 per credit. For this reason, I ran out of loans my last year. Other than finances, DeVry offers loads of help and a flexible schedule."

"Well... where do I begin?!?! Financial Aid Dept is absolutely ridiculous. Nothing they told me was adding up. So I did some research on my own, and what I learned made me sick. I kept calling them to get a straight story and they constantly lied to me. I started out as a "full time" student and when I called over a question I had over financial aid, and they told me I was part time. How in the world can they drop you to half time student when you enrolled as full time and doing school work as a full time student? Plus not informing you of this change. I had to submit a form of "student identification verification" which I went to my bank to have notarized. I sent it back over night by UPS. That was 2 months ago and it is still incomplete. I have called several times over this matter and I was told by student finance and my admissions advisor that the document was received and signed for but somehow it has disappeared so now my student financial aid will not be disbursed until the document is located and reviewed. This started in early February 2015, here it is almost middle of March, I have started school but racking up a big bill that I've already received a statement saying that I owe $1927.00 and I'm only in week 2 of school. None of this makes sense. My admissions advisor tells me one thing but financial aid office tells me another. I wish I could submit a screenshot of my emails with them but I can't. It will back my complaint up 100%. Financial aid office told me to stop talking to my admissions advisor and my admissions advisor told me that financial aid needed to get their crap together. I am so fed up. This is the most aggravating school and you cannot get the same story or truth from anyone."
