"They do a great job at one thing, selling the program. Teachers are so-so. You start out taking general education classes just like any other school. The biggest complaint is the money charged and lack of jobs. At the time we enrolled in Devry we didn't realize that employers hate this school and are less likely to offer a job to a Devry student compared with another comparable candidate. The school is not worth the tuition amount and I would recommend another school. Ideally, start with a Community/Junior college with the general ed classes and transfer to a university to focus on your area of study."

"DeVry University is an excellent school with professional teachers who will challenge and stretch your mind. I personally love their on line programs, but the on site campus is very nice and the atmosphere on campus is great. DeVry University is an excellent school and I highly recommend it."

"I finish my Associates this session and start my Multi Media Web Development Bachelors degree right after. The coaches and financial services are top notch they know how to keep you going so you can succeed in your studies and degree. I had two hospital stays for foot surgeries. My Coaches and Professors modified my schedule so I could get caught up. Failure is not an option. In the beginning I was out of school for a long while, the resources that DeVry uses online got me up to speed in the first session. Coming from a school environment of little to no computers this online learning is the way to go. Your libraries are as close as your PC and you do not have to come out of your PJ's if you don't want to. I put a lot of hours in and had a few all nighters while researching and learning Web code but in the end the projects were successful and the code techniques stuck to be used on other projects. It's a great time to be in to learn and find your passion in life and with the knowledge you gain be able to do something great with it. All of my Professors are in the Web industry and know how to teach lessons learned about work flow processes. You get real world techniques and experience from the learning process. Hope you consider Derry we have the best teachers. You can also take classes on campus which gives a more personable approach and also uses a blend of online learning and labs."

"In 2000, after graduation, I had my dreams of going to school. I did well the first term, but the second one not so well. I was stressing my self out and having problems. So, I decided to just drop out. After 13 years of thinking that I was a failure in life, I decided to go back to school. Within 3 months, I was accepted and starting here at Devry. Right now I am a sophomore and I can't wait to graduate. The reasons I want to finish school is to show my self I can handle anything new and challenging. For my family, to show them I am determined to do it and the other reason to bring my dream to life."

"I would not advise this school to anyone. I attended the New Brunswick campus in NJ, many of the professors I had were lazy and sometime obnoxious to students. Their online system for doing homework and taking tests is just bad, students were sometime unable to get into the system, and at times students would show up for classes and not be on the attendance list. Now many of my classmates were lazy and unmotivated. Many of them should not of been in college in the first place. This school will take anyone approved for financial aid and a heartbeat. The classes I took, I was basically teaching myself and all the tests were open book, so why bother to test anyone! The Math classes were a joke, totally self taught, there is one professor in the class and an assistant, who is usually just hanging out and not being really helpful. They are not teaching, they are just tutoring at very high prices. I could go on , but other posts are covering what I am leaving out pretty well.One last thing I took a class that was supposed to teach me how to use Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint. The Professor who was monitoring the class (he was not teaching), had no knowledge of Word or Excel, and the lessons were a series of computer tests, that had to be solved exactly the way the program was designed, previous knowledge of Excel PP or Word was useless since it had to be done the way the program wanted or you were wrong. Asking the professor for help was useless sine hed didn't know anything about the course. His advice was to finish as quickly as possible and go home. Overall Devry was below average. I am now at Rutgers Univ, a real college where students and faculty are focused."
