DeVry University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (277)
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.
I am a single mother of three beautiful children who works full time and attends college full time. DeVry's evening classes enable me to still work and attend class, in which my employer aids in letting me out in time for class on specified days. However, the flexibility of scheduling classes, the helpful faculty that wants nothing but your success is inspiring! The professors have actually worked in the field they teach and have real life examples that correlate with what we are learning. I am so very happy I chose DeVry in continuing my education.
I've been putting off going back to school for a few years. I was afraid of change and that the classes would be overwhelming. When I first walked in to DeVry I still wasn't sure about going back to school, but after meeting with a career and financial adviser I was more than willing to give it a try. Boy was I glad I did. I have only recently began my classes, but the professors are more than willing to answer any questions and go into as much detail about the subject as they can. The online courses are pretty efficient and just as detailed as an in class setting would be. I haven't been this excited about school ever, but with the major opportunities and all the support I know I can do it and succeed beyond here.
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 University has been a life changing experience for me; in fact, I am able to manage my time a lot better. My education does matter and I have the confident to finish college and achieve my degree. I never would of thought that I would be making A's and B's in college. With all the help that has been provided for me at DeVry University you can't help but to achieve your goals. I am so Excited!
DeVry University has helped me see that it is possible for me to go to college and get a degree so that I can provide a great life for my family. Everyone at the college that has helped me through the registration process and signing up for my classes has been wonderful. I thought going to college was out of reach until I found DeVry. They made the whole process so easy. Thank you for believing in me and giving me a wonderful opportunity!
The flexibility involved with DeVry for a full time, working adult has been tremendously helpful. Some of my coworkers are a little intimidated and the managers at the company are impressed that I have the drive to continue my education. There are a lot of people that ask about continuing education and look at me as a role model / figure of success and often think, "If he can do it, I can too." I'm driven to do more in life than the bare minimal. Earning my degrees have enabled me to go from a baseline worker to management and hit the six figure range in pay. That is highly motivating. I spoke with one of my professors in my very first class and she told me flat out, "Finishing your Masters Degree with your motivation will take you to new heights." I am on the verge of finishing my BA and am staying for the Masters. I spoke with my employer about growing opportunities in the company and they said that if I earn my Masters, they will happily promote me as they would rather promote from within instead of seeking talent from outside of the ranks of the existing company. My future is set and I couldn't be happier. With education in the bag, I feel confident that I will be able to provide my future family with everything they need and live comfortably doing it.
I would have never imagined myself going back to college at this stage of life, but here I am enrolled in an online degree program at DeVry University, mastering skill sets that lead to experiencing a life filled with excitement of tapping into personal potential on a professional level. DeVry's curriculum finding enthusiasm of accomplishment through all courses especially accounting and business management, which I would have missed if I just have continued with the status quo of nothingness. Knowing this endeavor to be true for myself by acceptance of placement on Dean?s list for multiple consecutive semesters indicates self-acknowledgements.."Here is where I grow to becoming the individual I came here to be"...successfully me!
I always wanted to finish my degree, but with a busy family life I never had the time, until one day I said to myself, it's time to make my dream come true. I could not do this alone, I had my family and fabulous DeVry Coach by my side. I said DeVry it's giving me a coach for one hour a week, oh wow, what a School? The coach would call me every week for an hour and help me with my concerns and motivated me until I was ready to go on my own. Here I am 3 years later, getting ready for my graduation. In my opinion, the cost does not matter when you getting quality of everything you need to make it. Thank you DeVry support team and Professors for making my dream a reality. I just can't believe I made it. I'm going to miss you and the great quality Professors. They always were so compassion and ready to do whatever possible within the University Guidelines to make you succeed. DeVry is definitely "Second to None". I have to also thank the recruiting team for their advice (even on Saturdays) and the finance team who was always making sure I stay within budget. And it'll not be fair to forget the technical team for always making sure we enjoyed the latest technology. If I had to do it again, I will certainly choose, "DeVry University". Thank you, Thank you for giving my family the opportunity to live better. This comes from my heart to yours.
I really doubt the veracity of some of the reviews here. Especially the extremely positive ones. I attended Devry both on campus and online parttime for several years. The last few years Devry has changed. The executive level has been replaced by non-educators who decided to remodel Devry's hands-on teaching style to a profit centrix approach that puts the focus on promise everything to get them in the door and get their money. To be brutally honest Devry is now a school for underachievers. Unfair I know especially to those students who work hard. But the reason is that pretty much every quiz, test and lab is available by a simple google search (i.e. search CIS 336 Week 2 Quiz). The material is not kept up to date because only the corporate offices can make changes to the course shells which they don't dedicate the time, money or course expertise to do so every piece of course material ends up online for download by students who don't have to think or work to pass the courses. This is not considered to be a problem and they refuse to discuss it since it serves the purpose of not loosing students through academic difficulty. It's a shame because Devry was a very good school but now not so much!
