DeVry Debt - 4/7/2017
Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2017
"The class last about 2 months and we were graded on discussion posts which is like YouTube commenting or blog/news article commenting. The instructors and other students lived in faraway states which affected communication awkwardness and our instructors were very hard to reach for questions or concerns. The education was practically outdated information and outdated programming software from 2010 and 2013 software while taking classes in 2014-2017 and paying tuition 2500 dollars bi weekly plus extra class/board/ other fees for what???. We were cheated of the education we received. I hate to admit this but, DeVry University is a total ripoff."

"Devry is a great school for engineers or professionals looking to receive your degree from a school that works around your schedule. It doesn't make too much difference where you get your degree, it's the amount of work you put into your career after school."

"I came back to school after ten years off and wasn't sure I could do it. The staff is more than accommodating and they actually care. I have had some of the most diverse professors and they have been amazing. I am not finished yet but confident!!!!!!"

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2012
"A typical predatory "for-profit" joke of a school. They ONLY care about deceiving you out of your money, your student loans, and your VETERANS BENEFITS. There is a guy on Google reviews who sums up how they work. Basically a telemarketing center calling calling calling to get you registered for courses and once they do, they won't give you the time of day. Took my GI BILL money, 'automatically' withdrew me from a course without my knowledge, consent, or any sort of notification. I now owe the VA $3,000 and Devry is being the big for-profit bully telling me tough luck. A JOKE. DO NOT ATTEND BUYER BEWARE VETERANS BEWARE"

"DeVry is a 'for profit' school and does not care about actual results, and will only provide token support for finding a job afterward. Our classes all taught programming systems that were all outdated. Example: They taught us UDK, which wasn't even supported by it's maker anymore. Then, rather than updating the degree, they simply stopped offering it shortly before I graduated. The advisors were terrible, and didn't bother to advise me that there are virtually no game programing jobs in my state. I could have easily opted for a degree that would have gotten me a job in t his area, but all the recruiter was interested in was getting me in the door to get their commission. My first recruiter actually signed me up for classes despite me sending multiple emails to wait, then I had to jump through hoops to avoid paying penalties for classes I didn't even ask for. Now I have a degree that isn't worth the paper it's printed on, and that has actually been a detriment to me getting a job. In order to finally get a job, I've had to redo my resume to downplay my degree and concentrate on getting tech support jobs. So basically, I am jobless, hoping at best to get the same job I had before my degree, and struggling to pay for a $60k degree. My life and dreams are basically dead because of DeVry. I would have been better off training myself. It's a pity that lowering my earning potential wasn't a valid choice, because that's basically what its done because now I'm 'over qualified'. I may very well end up on the street because of this degree."

Degree: Network Security
Graduation Year: 2011
"DeVry University provides an opportunity for students hoping to further their careers. It succeeds for those that are self motivated and determined to obtain a degree; however, it may not be the best option for those with financial constraints or that need extra support. They struggle in these areas. The degree program could be more rigorous and provide a clearer outline of what careers in the chosen field from this institution actually constitute. Overall, it accomplishes its mission of placing graduates in careers after college but it falls short of the fulfillment and growth potential in those fields."

Court - 2/28/2017
Degree: Technology Management
Graduation Year: 2017
"Worst program I have been in. I graduated from a junior college with 2 assoc degrees in 2 years and have been taking classed for 2.5 years here just to get a bach degree. You will NOT graduate faster. The classes can all be found on Google. You will find some good teachers but most don't care and don't have to do anything. One I had didn't have a clue what I was talking about when asked a question straight from their material. Outrageously priced. Academic advising has the highest turnover rate I have ever seen. Don't waste your time and money."

Degree: Web Development
Graduation Year: 2011
"Let me begin. If I knew first that this college was for profit I wouldn't have gone. This college has several other sister colleges connected to its parent group. This college has been investigated over 100times and sued by the ftc for 100 BTW should've been a couple billion. Settlement was a joke on the ftc case. This college spends half of its federal income on advertising and pays the instructors pee poor. The quality of education is poor. Teachers scared me on how bad the college was.... Yep I went here. Got suckered in.... False advertising and you'd graduate fastest.. Promise a job that has higher pay with degrees from other colleges. Young and dumb me Goin for big dreams. the classes were jokes... Financial advisors trick you... all they want is assess in classes. High up management get paid like millions and stockholders same. It's the scam of the century. Poor expensive education that will increase poverty everywhere. bad for America. They have lobbyists in DC... So they are in bed with Congress and doe... Makes me want to protest devry... Put up signs all around there dum scammy college..."

"I felt that the education that DeVry University provided was of high caliber. Because of my military experience, I had a background in training and management. DeVry amplified my knowledge on all of the aspects that I would need to further my understanding while in the military but also the characteristics of the private sector."

"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."
