"I'm going to keep this brief. I transferred from my on campus tech school to Devry after my I accepted a full time job that didn't allow me to go to physical classes. It's true, many of the course material is outdated and the material can be googled . However, I did find many of the information useful and up to date. Networking is constantly changing, so that's important. The teachers usually work with your schedule for the most part. Now here's my problem with Devry. unfortunately I failed that last two classes before graduation. I had too much going on and I fell off track. Devry called me constantly attempting to collect a $3,000 balance and even told me interest (just as much as a credit card) with be tacked on if I did not pay within a certain time. What kind of school does this to its students. So now here I am, 5 credits from receiving my diploma paying a Devry account that went into collections because I didn't have the $3000 up front or the $300 monthly payment plan they told me I could afford. The courses at Devry are absolutely over priced for the overall quality of the school. They do have some benefits but its not worth it to me. After I pay my balance in full, I'll be finishing the remainder of my degree elsewhere if possible. This school nothing but a business in it for the money. I don't believe they genuinely care about their students. No, I would not recommend them."

No excuses , it is up to you to gain as much as you can. - 5/2/2017
Degree: Network Administration

"Hello fellow future classmates and people i would to give an overview of what this school is like for those who are skeptical , this school is extremely helpful and knowledgeable when it comes to academics. So as a transfer student from itt tech i saw how well i was learning and decided to continue my education , here as a network administrator or engineer i have learned many things through this school , it is very pleasant and flexible specifically i have learned things like how to configure cisco switches , routers , EIGRP , RIP ,RIP2 , OSPF AD. Certain classes i am taken are routing and switching essentials , intro to business and technology , so i recommend anyone to this school who is looking to further their education. Some things i wanted to add are that , if looking to get a degree in network engineer or administrator , some other concepts they provide are , OSPF ,ACL'S , dhcpv4 , etc. this school provides a great deal of resources accessible to you , in regards with things such as , creating your own resume or how to , how to make portfolios , so it is up to you as a student to do whatever it takes to gain , as much as you can from this school , and not to be pointing fingers at anything or anyone."

"I became intrigued by DeVry, when I came in contact with an alumni who had become very successful after the completion of his degree program, years ago. I decided to go ahead and give DeVry a try. The course material offered by DeVry, during my journey toward a degree in computer science, was fantastic. Be prepared to move fast and learn a lot. If you pay attention to all of the material that is provided to you, you can easily knock two birds with one stone and go ahead and take on some of the industries best certifications. I would advice, that immediately after taking a course, go set up appointments for testing, assuming that you did well and absorbed lots of information. I say this, because the data will still be fresh on your mind. Get the most out of your degree. Always stay on top of things, so to not procrastinate and lose momentum. Paired with that degree, I think we can all do great."

"This is the worse school you can ever go to. If you want to learn something this is not the place for you. The professors are a joke. If you need help with an online course and ask question they do everything but answer the question. Their iLabs are a joke along with tech support. They have so many outside supports for different items that no one know what the other is doing. If this is a tech school why can't they troubleshoot their own problems. When I complained it went all the way to the dean and his answer was to address my issue with the professor, whom by the way I was complaining about. The reason for the complaint was the professor was not helping me or answering my questions. If I could do it all over again I would never joined this school, it is a wonder why they are close down some of their campuses which they failed to mention when I signed up that the campus I was going to would be closing down 6 months later."

"I am a disabled Veteran was offered to go to school. I chose DeVry down in Columbus, OH. The VA was paying for my schooling so I decided to check out DeVry. First off they said the Network and Communication Management degree was something I would look forward to. That was their first mistake. Second the VA supposedly sent to much money DeVry sent it back now are charging me $500 to release my transcript. Now I can't go to school again till I pay this $500 in full. They are punishing me for not finishing their school and I'm trying to better my life. I would not recommend this school to anyone."

"I have a Bachelors degree in Network and Communications. My first job out of school (with no experience) paid $52,000. A year later I changed companies and was making $60,000 and now just 3 years after graduation I am making $72,000. I have attend a State University and both schools are accredited by the same institution; I feel I received better instruction at DeVry. I am sure each case is different, but I am very happy with my DeVry experience. I applied myself and put the responsibility on my shoulders and now I am reaping the fruits of hard work."
