"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."

"Starting out at DeVry was a smooth transition. From applying getting the documents required, to day one of class. Yes, I had to take out loans and had help with grants, but the overall experience was outstanding. Even the transition from CA campus to CO campus was smooth. Regarding the classes them self. You have to work for the grade you want. It is a fast pace education, as it is only 8 weeks vs your normal 16 weeks. It is very easy to fail a class if your mind is not focused. I myself experienced a failing class more than once. One of my biggest dislikes is they let go multiple teachers that actually enjoyed teaching and hired PhD instructors that could not teach the course or provide any real world to the course. You ask for help and they became very defensive, I even got so frustrated I called them a babysitter looking for a paycheck. In the end wishing I got more learning in my core classes. I still graduated with a 3.7 gpa."

"I attended back in Fall 2013 and finished in August 2016. DeVry University taught me that evil exists in this world and they prey on the weak and vulnerable. DeVry university is the evil scam that ruined my life mentally and financially. I see a psychiatrist thanks to DeVry University evil ways. I took classes that were mostly copy and paste from google search since, they use past years curriculum without ever changing it every year like normal schools would. They over price their short 8 week classes, outdated textbooks/computer programs that are 5-10 years outdated, and, they hire subpar instructors that don't have expertise in what they are teaching. Overall after finishing the program, It has been over a year and I have not found work in the field and DeVry was investigated for false reporting of graduates and other claims but, all I got from the lawsuit was 200 dollars and yet I spend almost over 100 grand for a bachelors degree in CIS that is pretty worthless. DeVry university should be named the Devil's Underworld. DeVry is EVIL. Don't attend DeVry university or you will regret it mentally and financially like I did."

"The class last about 2 months and we were graded on discussion posts which is like YouTube commenting or blog/news article commenting. The instructors and other students lived in faraway states which affected communication awkwardness and our instructors were very hard to reach for questions or concerns. The education was practically outdated information and outdated programming software from 2010 and 2013 software while taking classes in 2014-2017 and paying tuition 2500 dollars bi weekly plus extra class/board/ other fees for what???. We were cheated of the education we received. I hate to admit this but, DeVry University is a total ripoff."

"I wouldn't waste your time or money. The curriculum is out-of-date, most classes need to be taken online. Most of the tests, exams and homework can easily be Googled. Did I mention that the curriculum is out-of-date. It's just an expensive degree that holds little value to most employers. Please don't waste your time or money."

"Online classes at DeVry are so much better than what I have experienced at other institutions. The interface of the classroom is more user-friendly than at other schools. The teachers are attentive, knowledgeable, supportive, very present and interested in seeing you succeed in the course. Course materials are also great. Live feeds or recordings of weekly lectures are available in addition to other videos DeVry has made available that can be incorporated into your online learning experience. Online library resources are available and you even have access to librarians when you need help finding things in the online library. Even the online math classes are interactive. DeVry doesn't make it easy to pass classes because they are not a diploma mill. DeVry does, however, make it easy to learn with how interactive the online class environment is and all the resources the college offers. This has been my favorite college experience. I was worried that being online would leave me looking like a number instead of a student and that it would be harder to learn. That is NOT the case at DeVry. I highly recommend DeVry and DeVry's online classes."

"Do not go to this school. They are scam artist. They are holding my transcript because I owe them money for a class that THEY withdrew me from without my knowledge. They also threatened to ruin my credit because of this. I will be able to get my transcript next year once this bill is paid. I told them that they are stopping my education but they told me to pay more each month so I can get my transcript quicker. I am one of the people now that will never finish college because of them; Cant afford too. Thanks Devry."

"This university is tremendously horrible. I wouldn't even send my cat here honestly. The support from staff and professors is virtually non existent. The tuition fees are out of this world expensive. I was paying for nothing but air. If you value yourself please don't attend this university."

"I attended DeVry 2001-2002, the year they became accredited as a university (Institute of Technology to University). They offered a one year B.S degree in IT for students who already had obtained a bachelors degree of any major. I graduated and earned a B.S in Information Technology, but the program included no professional certifications and the courses did not train for what employers were looking for. This was their biggest selling point on this program. While I was still in the program, the career services team would tell us they would ALWAYS be there to provide their services after graduation, however immediately upon graduation, they would not respond to phone calls, emails or would just be unwilling to provide the service they claimed they would provide. I paid $20K to them for a useless diploma. They canceled this degree program shorty after I graduated also."

"Its an OK college. They give a lot of generalized education in your degree, not enough specifics unless you get a masters. They help you find a job if you stay in the colleges region, but no help if you leave."

"I'm ashamed to say that I'm a graduate of DeVry. I attended DeVry 1988 thru 1991 when the school was called DeVry Institute of Technology in Industry CA. The education was not adequate to get a job in my field of study. I graduated with a BS degree in Telecommunications Management & I'm not working in that field. After about a year of sending resumes & going to interviews I finally got a job in a computer chip fabrication company for what was close to minimum wage at the time. Sad to say it was the only job at the time where I did not mention DeVry. I'm at a better job now with the State, & I have not mentioned DeVry as my college. I feel that had I gone to a real college, my earnings would have been better right from the start of my job search. I attended DeVry because I had no where else to go or do. I was out of high school for a year & was working as a clerk at a grocery store. DeVry was a quick way to get out of being a clerk because I believed all the lies about the quality education & high percentage of job placements after graduation. My first interview after graduation was a real eye opener for me because that is when I realized that I did not have enough education to be hired for a job in the telecommunications field. The job that I have now is no thanks to DeVry. When asked about where I went to college, I'll say some other school. I got good grades but is was all for not because in the interviews in the field of telecommunications I felt very inadequate & stupid because I was not able to answer questions that I could have an answered had I gone to a real college. I did not mention my disappointment to my parents because I did not want to make them feel as ashamed as I did. I can say that I hate DeVry, but I can also say that I should have done my research before deciding to go to DeVry. I've learned to put my DeVry experience behind me to where I don't get upset anymore. I made many good friends while at DeVry. I'll just say that DeVry is a fraud, their job placement dept. is joke, & I will never recommend this place to anyone."

"I competed my bachelors degree on time, 3 years. I was working 5 days a week 50 hours a week Monday through Friday, so the flexibility was key for me. The job I had was not in my field of study and Devry gave me the fundamentals I need to get my foot in the door. I accepted a job at Nortel Networks as a Systems Engineer a week before I graduated making about $30,000 a year more than I was making in my previous job. After 7 years at Nortel I accepted a position at Cisco Systems as a Sr. Systems Engineer for 8 years. I am now a Systems Engineering Manage at a technology start up. Sense graduating from Devery I have increased my income 5x and in my current job I travel all over the world working with the largest Service Providers in every country. It takes a lot of hard work and a high GPA is a must to get a good job if you are just starting out in your field of study. If you think you're going to buy your degree from Devry and breeze through class you are sadly mistaken. I have worked with serveral people in my career that are Devry grads that have a story similar to mine. If you are not a 100% dedicated to completing your degree you need to rethink going to any school. Once you commit to student loans you will never make the money you need to pay it back without that Degree."

"The most valuable insight I have gained from my college experience is the realization that the quality of education attained is entirely dependent upon the level of individual effort put forth. The majority of my career-essential knowledge has been attained exclusively through on-the-job training;however, it was through my experiences in college that I learned that self-expectations set to a high standard provides a personal pattern for success and makes a person their own engine for the change in their life."

"I had a good experience with my DeVry education. The level of difficulty was relatively low, but I believe that you get what you put into this school. I graduated with a high GPA and was able to get an entry level job (also had military experience with degree). After getting a little work experience I was accepted into a Master Program at Penn State University. I think that many people have a negative perception of Devry, but it can definitely be used as a platform to other opportunists. The degree will not open all doors, but it can help you get interviews that you might not otherwise get. I was also in the military and got the discounted rate. If I did not have the discounted rate i'm not sure if I would have paid full tuition to go here, but in my situation it worked out."

"I attended this college for 18 months and from the beginning I did not encounter any problems. The admissions, college and financial advisors were very helpful and made my stay at DeVry rewarding. I had an Environmental Science class and I wondered what this class had to do with my college career. Well, I got my answer when I took a statistics class. I was glad I took the Environmental Science class first. If not I would have been lost in the statistics class. The student support services gave me much support during my time with DeVry. I was invited to be a Student Support Advisor during my senior year and it was my pleasure giving other students advice. All of the professors were knowledgable and helpful. One thing I know about this school and I advised other students to never turn in an assignment late without an excuse such as a doctor's statement. All of my professors were very understanding. If a student missed an important deadline, the professors will not lower their grade; they only asked for verification.There is a lot of reading,studying and projects to do. You have to stay focused and disciplined. If you plan to make excuses and not take your education seriously, then DO NOT ENROLL at DeVry because you will waste your money. I am working with career services and they are helping me with my resume. Although I am a mother, and full-time employee, I graduated Summa Cum Laude because I was focus and very disciplined I worked very hard in the last 18 months and I know it will pay off. I posted my resume online and I received several invitations to apply with different companies.Thank You DeVry University!!!"
