"I had a great experience inDevry so great I actually went back and continued my education they help you our more than what other people are saying. This school has been amazing!!

"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."

"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reuse all the assignments and directions from previous (and I really mean previous) classes because everything is so outdated the instructions & amount of points will conflict with all of the grading rubrics.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."

"Would not recommend this school. They have not done anything but caused problems since day one. First, they are not homeschool friendly and will make you jump through a lot of hoops to prove you graduated, even if you have a diploma or transcript! Also, they will say and agree with you on everything just to get you in the door and start collecting the money for it. All advisors and financial aid staff will consistently say different things about what you need or dont need. No one seems to be on the same page! Some professors are great, friendly and to the point. Some are overly detailed to the point of confusion, they expect way more work than the normal class and they dont communicate well so your work suffers. I would highly recommend going somewhere else if you can."

"WOW! I'm attending DeVry as I write this, and after reading the reviews I wonder what state's you people are in???? Yes, It's not cheap. Yes, you have to apply yourself, but my professor's have never been rude or ignored my requests for help when I needed it. The faculty has been supportive from the word go, even when I lost my s*** over something I thought they did when in all actuality it was my mistake. So, granted there are cheaper places go to school and if online education is so unbearable then you need to enroll in classroom studies. I am 57 years old and haven't been in a classroom for over 30 years much less have the computer knowledge of most of my peers, but I will tell you one thing, I have friends who have invested a boat load of time, money and financial aid into community colleges and the certifications and diplomas they received aren't worth the paper their printed on. And to answer your question, I'm in Kansas."

"I am going to start off by saying that my experience with DeVry is a very positive one. I will be graduating here soon and I have nothing but positive things to say. The professors I have had were great! I had one that I was not impressed with, but I am not going to let one ruin my experience. I have read reviews that you are smothered when you first start, you are not smothered they make sure you are making progress and feel comfortable, for me this was the first online program, so I needed it. Students are adults and should not have to be supervised the entire time. My adviser checks in on me about once a term unless I have a question for them. No need to hold my hand. I do agree that if you want a good grade, it does take a lot of time and practice. The medical billing and coding program was not as easy as I expected with many years of healthcare under my belt, but it is pushing me to learn which I love. It is an online program, the professors cannot be there 24/7, it is up to you to teach yourself somethings, and every professor I have had has answered any questions I had. Medical billing and coding takes practice and that is the point they want to get across. I had zero issues with credit transfers from other colleges, but I did have issues in the beginning that were not DeVry's fault. First being student aid and then my laptop died mid term on my first term. So anything I have had to overcome, DeVry's staff was there for me."

"DeVry is NOT the school to consider for medical billing & coding. They got rid of TEACHERS to hire "professors" only looking for paychecks and superiority and it shows. The "professors" DO NOT HELP the students. Granted it is an "online" program so there is a LOT of "self teaching", but when a "professors" idea of "help" is telling students to "do the odd # problems becuase the answers are in the back of the book and you can correct your own work and see where YOU went wrong. I can tell you the answers, but I already know how to do MY job. We're all adults and YOU signed up for school so YOU need to do the work." THAT is NOT helpful to the student. I was a 4.0 student until the "professor" decided i wouldnt be any more. I did my work, I participated, I studied, I worked HARD for my grade. Then when I started to struggle, the "professor" nor my "advisor" were of any help. There were constant "glitches" on THEIR end, I (conveniently) began being told I WASN'T logging into class OR submitting my work (again, I was a 4.0 student to this point, so how "logical" is it that I WASN'T turning in work or "attending" class?) When I reached out, then began to complain, I never heard a peep from my "advisor" trying to help OR see what was going on. Bottom line, STAY AWAY FROM DEVRY if you're interested in billing & coding. There are other schools out there that offer the same/comparable courses for (literally) HALF the price of this FOR PROFIT b***. They are NOT interested in helping you succeed, they only want your money to pay their paychecks. And when iiiii pay YOUR paycheck, I expect to be treated better, otherwise I take my money elsewhere, plain and simple. ANY "university" that would ALLOW their "professors" to treat their students SO poorly doesn't deserve to be in business nevermind "accredited". NONE of the "professors" in the HIM/HIT/Billing & Coding program need to be "instructing" a class as they "teach" NOTHING, all they do is make you do "course projects", and think this is somehow "teaching". So, unless you like writing papers, and spending HOURS a week in "discussion boards" (that most of the "professors" do NOT participate in btw), then this is not the school for you. I came from a community college with an associates in medical assisting, and am lucky I did because I learned NOTHING at DeVry. Devry taught me nothing. The "professors" taught me nothing. The ONLY thing I learned at this school was how to use PowerPoint-USELESS in billing & coding. Just stay away from this "school" if youre interested in Medical billing and coding (or ANYTHING medical related). Theyve only been doing medical for about 2 years and dont know what they're doing, and neither will you. Yes, online classes are a LOT of self teaching, but your "professor" SHOULD be there for you, not just tell you to "do the practice questions". (the WORST, RUDEST "professor" they have imo) All they want is your money, and they don't care if or what you learn. Go ANYWHERE BUT DeVry. They're SHADY AF there, ive heard the "inside stories" from previous employees. NOT a good school. NOT about the student, ONLY the money. I'd give this school negative "stars" if I could. WORST. EXPERIENCE. EVER."

"I do not recommend DeVry to anyone. They are very uninformative, unprofessional, the teachers are awful, the advisors are horrible, the classroom settings are the worst I have ever been in; I can go on and on. DeVry will advertise anything to get you to go to their school but once you get in, they are of no help getting you through to the end of your educational journey. If you want to transfer; keep everything on record (EMAIL!!!). Again, I do NOT recommend this school to anyone. It was a HUGE loss for me financially and a loss of time as well."

"I'm actually switching schools because I am SO VERY DISAPPOINTED in this school! I signed up for the medical billing and coding program. They spend 8 weeks in classes that are NOT needed, and then when you get into the ACTUAL classes for billing and coding, you are SPED through SO VERY QUICKLY, and they start you at an "intermediate" level instead of beginner. The "professors" DO NOT "teach". they are RUDE, and are only there to collect a paycheck. It is a "for profit" school, and the curriculum and staff is proof of that. They DO NOT reach out and try to help you, they are RUDE when you ask questions and tell you to "read". They assume that their "coworkers" have done their jobs and taught the students in previous prerequisite classes and tell you to refer back to that instead of talking you through step-by-step helping you to understand. They tell you "it's the textbook the school chooses" instead of standing up for the student and saying "we need to break the class into levels to explain it for the students". Maybe it's just me, but I think they're more about the amount of people signed up as students than actual people SUCCEEDING as students. So I'm finding another school that's WILLING to TEACH and HELP me understand completely. I would recommend you RUN AWAY from DeVry University, and SAVE YOUR MONEY."
