DeVry University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (273)
I graduated from DeVry in December 2017. I earned my bachelors of science in computer information systems with a cumulative GPA 3.86. I did the entire course online. So far, I have been on several interviews and all have said that I am not sufficiently trained or there is too much of a deficit in my level of skill to perform the entry level job. The jobs applied for are entry level software developer, database admin, among others my degree states I am prepped for. I finally gave up and went back to seeking employment in my old industry (construction). The reason I chose DeVry was their outstanding job placement stats, 88% of people who go through their program obtain a job in their field 6 months after graduation. In life I believe hard work and perseverance are the keys to successful goal accomplishment. However, in this case I feel I got duped by a university that over promised and under delivered. I did my part and graduated with honors, however, all I received in return is $60,000 dollars in student load debt and nothing to show for it except for a diploma in a nice case. The worst part about it is DeVry representatives dodge responsibility by turning the tables and placing blame on the graduate for the lack of employment success. My advice do not, I repeat do not, consider Devry as a means to an end in your pursuit of gainful employment you may be extremely disappointed.
Devry has enabled me to finish my degree so that I can pursue a career in the field that I desire. Devry was with me every step of the way from beginning to end. Devry has classes that are online as well as those that are in the classroom. The classes not only teach the required course knowledge but they bring in examples of how the field of study is being used in the real world. The course also uses new methods to show the technological advances in the field of study. There are new ways of using material. The classes are not stagnate. The options for courses are also varied. The course that you want/need is always available. Whether the class is available on campus or online. At first a student may seem apprehensive about about taking a class online. You may be afraid that the material taught will not be sufficient knowledge. But it is more than adequate. A student just needs to get used to the online classes to be successful. You need to understand what you need to do to make the course a success. You can't procrastinate. You need to do the readings and the homework or ilabs right away. If you do not understand something this will allow you the time to reach out to someone (your teacher or the tutor) and get some help. The teachers and the tutors are always willing to help you understand what you don't know. I would recommend Devry to someone who wants to finish their degree but is not sure what to do or where to go.
I was satisfied with the courses and the contact I had with the staff at DeVry/Keller. Though I still have yet to obtain a position in my career field. I completed my Bachelor's Degree in Technical Management in 2010. I went back to school in 2014 and my academic advisor had me to enroll with Keller. I was informed that since I already had a degree with DeVry and was an Alumni I would get the Alumni rate to go back to school with Keller. I found later that this is not true and I had to pay the standard rate as if I never attended school because I didn't get my Bachelor's and Master's from DeVry or both my Bachelor's and Master's from Keller. I was not able to get my Bachelor's from DeVry and get the Alumni rate continuing my education with Keller though they are affiliated and though they both are listed on my diploma from my Master's program with Keller.
After looking into several different schools, I chose Devry University. Devry's staff have been extremely helpful and encouraging through out my courses. I really enjoyed my time at Devry and would highly recommend Devry to anyone looking to further their education online or in class.
I came back to DeVry after being away for 12 years. The representatives welcomed me back with open arms and walked with me carefully to make sure I was ready for the new semester. I'm back as a Senior and will finish in the summer, FINALLY receiving my Bachelor's degree. The classes are relevant to my career so while I take the classes, I can immediately apply those lessons to my job and I see the improvements. I recommend anyone who can to come to DeVry and receive that higher education he/she so richly deserves.
I was concerned about going back to school after many years since high school graduation. But all of the staff and professors are available to make this the best experience for my college education. I had been out of the workforce for nearly 10 years and was concerned with returning to work, but with my experience and education that DeVry has offered me, I will not only enjoy returning to work with my knowledge of my selected field, but I will have the knowledge to advance in my career choice. DeVry has helped my self confidence with the ability to know that I can do this. They are there to help, from enrollment, financial aid, technical issues , program selection and completion. This has been an exhilarating time. Not only giving me assistance with my education needs but they while staff makes it their goal to see me exceed. I'm so happy I chose DeVry!
DeVry University provides an excellent learning experience with qualified Doctor's and Professors of education. I got a free download of Microsoft Office with all the programs (and more) that I needed. DeVry has an excellent scholarship program and a list of other scholarships and grants you can apply for. The staff is very polite, professional, and helpful. I recommend DeVry to all students who want a quality education and to be well prepared for the business world.
The program itself was not bad, I learned a lot. I'm thankful for the degree but I was lied to about what it would day on the diploma. My specialty was biology, I was told it would reflect that, but instead said "general technical specialty." After I completed my online program, I went to the New Brunswick campus to speak with an advisor in career services. The woman I saw was amazingly unfriendly, downright nasty at times and could not care less about seeing me because I wasn't 100% on what career I wanted (the whole reason I went to talk to them). I arrived 5 minutes late, waited another 20, then when she was finally ready for me the first thing she did was yell at me for being late. She also basically yelled at me like a child for not bringing a resume, which I told her on the phone to make the appointment I wasn't certain how to make and didn't have one, and she told me she'd help me at the meeting. I wasted over an hour drive to see them for nothing.
Do not go to this school. They are scam artist. They are holding my transcript because I owe them money for a class that THEY withdrew me from without my knowledge. They also threatened to ruin my credit because of this. I will be able to get my transcript next year once this bill is paid. I told them that they are stopping my education but they told me to pay more each month so I can get my transcript quicker. I am one of the people now that will never finish college because of them; Cant afford too. Thanks Devry.
This university is tremendously horrible. I wouldn't even send my cat here honestly. The support from staff and professors is virtually non existent. The tuition fees are out of this world expensive. I was paying for nothing but air. If you value yourself please don't attend this university.
