DeVry University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (279)
My Overall experience with DeVry University, Has been one of the best experiences I've ever had. I really love the hard work and dedication that the falculty put into helping those of us who want to succeed. I choose this school because I'm a very different type of student. My skills are hands on and practical so Devry was a great choice for me. When I read some of the comments that some of these students write, I ask myself, where do you see yourself in the next 5 years or even now? You know where I see myself ? Graduating with my Bachelor's Degree because I worked my ass off for it and you guys sit here and complain. Blame yourself for not succeeding. DeVry gives you all the resources why not use them and stop complaining. Reach out to the staff when there's a problem. This school is great for single working mom's like myself and for those who want a college degree to get a head. DeVry helps those who help themselves.
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 They over price their short 8 week classes, outdated textbooks/computer programs that are 5-10 years outdated, and, they hire subpar instructors that don't have expertise in what they are teaching.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.
I was a student of Devry for a little less than a year. I was almost done with my certification when I had found out to take my test to be certified I would have to repurchase brand new books. The books I ad already paid for were 2-3 years old and would not be accepted. I also found out that to take my test I would I have to travel 2 hours away and I would have to schedule the date for the exam. I was told I was not allowed to move on with the program until I passed this test. After, all of this information was told to me 1 month before graduation I dropped out. Ihad one instructor that ignored everyone in the class for weeks. another instructor almost failed me for "losing" my report even when I proved I sent it to him multiple times he never fixed my grade and dropped my GPA. The only benefit of my experience is taking my college credits and going to a different school.
I attended DeVry (back then Ohio Institute of Technology) after completing 2.5 years in the SUNY system. I loved the small class sizes and learned to program very well. Already had all the liberal arts courses I could ever need and wanted to focus on the computer science piece and complete quickly, which I did. Most of the teachers were excellent. I got a job immediately after graduation and currently have a 6-figure salary. It was all classroom then and you had to work hard and attend all day 5 days a week, but if you put in the work, you would graduate with a good education. I have no complaints.
I hate Devry University. What a terrible experience. You can call in and speak to hundreds of different people and get different answers. I have spent so much time and hassle sorting out student finances and WASTED so much time because one person would tell me something only to find out that what they told me wasn't true. I will NEVER
I've been attending DeVry University for 2 years now and thus far I have not encountered any problems with them. DeVry has helped and treated me fairly since the beginning. I haven't had any financial issues with them either and the instructors that I've had are very helpful and always responded back to me as soon as they could.
I received a B.S in Technical Management from DeVry and attended Keller Graduate immediately afterward. My experience was fairly good throughout, until I was 3 classes away from graduating again. I didn't know DeVry was facing a class action lawsuit and closing some of their campuses. I was part of the suit, and have received a check. Anyways, long story short: DeVry allows students to retake failed and withdrawn courses up to 3 times. I needed to retake 2 of my last 3 courses, and was approved by the campus Dean. Then...the week classes begin, headquarters emails me that I am dismissed because those 2 classes dropped my gpa below 3.0 I transferred schools to finish my degree with Strayer and they took very few of my credits. I spend another $40,000 with Strayer all because DeVry would not let me retake courses as agreed upon. This school is outrageous after they get nearly $50,000 of your loan money. Absurd! They have done this to other students that eventually would fall short of their financial aid.

This School is Regional Accredited (the highest Accreditation a colleges/university can have), holds the same type of accreditation as Michigan State University. Regional Accredited.
I thought DeVry was okay. However, I was a low maintenance student. What I mean by that is, I did what I was supposed to do, you know, study, show up for class, do my assignments. As far as getting a job with DeVry on my resume, I had no problems. I did read some of the reviews where it was said that the interviewer smirked when they saw the applicant went to DeVry. News flash, they knew where you went to school before they agreed to interview you. So, the smirk, most likely, has nothing to do with the college. You may need to take a long look in the mirror and brush up on your interviewing skills. As far as the curriculum goes, some classes were easy, some were challenging. The professors for the most part were good but there were a couple who probably should not be teaching at a university. The one issue I do have with DeVry is the enrollment standards. They do enroll students that have no chance of successfully completing their degree. Enrolling a student who scored the minimum on the entrance exam on their second attempt into an accelerated degree plan is bad. Taking this same student and factor in that they work full-time or may be a single parent and you still convince them to enroll, is just vile.
My degree is a BS in Technical Management. DeVry uses this degree to give course credit based on past experience, military training, and non-transferable classes allowing you to finish your degree quicker. I started with the school at 48 years old because finishing a degree was always important to me. My opinion of DeVry is that they are committed to you completing your degree as long as you are committed to completing your degree. Like traditional schools I've attended courses are not always fun but they are concise and immediately applicable. I especially appreciate the compressed schedule but it's hard work. I'm proud of my degree. It's opened doors that were not previously available and I haven't heard anyone address the education as inferior.
