The education is good and I feel prepared to use my education combined with my professional experiences to advance my career. Most professors are involved in the student's success. Student services is helpful and knowledgeable. I rarely spoke with the same student advisor more than once, and that is an obstacle if there is an ongoing issue to resolve.

If I could give below zero stars, I would!!! I'm a combat disabled Vet and decided to go to DeVry via the Voc Rehab Program; What a mistake! Although I have an ADA Letter of Accommodations, DeVry Professors and Officials have continuously disregarded the impact of combat on Veterans. DeVry does not have a department or specific individuals that work with Vets, they just pass you around so you can get the runaround. The admissions officers feed a line of B.S. worse than 'any' recruiter or used car salespersons.

There are no dedicated Student Advisors, and again, you just get passed around. There is NO FOLLOW UP from anyone for school-related issues. The "Course Canvas" app they use for online courses is FULL of bugs and not worth the paper its written on! Har har... Did I mention DeVry is more than happy when a vet fails a course due to service-related issues? You can almost hear them salivating because they know the VA will pay for that and another course. The VA should BAN DeVry from soliciting to Veterans!!! NEVER GO TO DEVRY!!!

My experience so far with this institution is all I ask for. The Professors are very knowledgeable, experienced and very helpful. The online experience for me is second to none. It’s not for the lazy types, it’s a lot of hard work and fast paced too. Trust me, I enjoyed every bit of it. Thanks to Professors ** and **. My academic advisor is Kyle, whenever he gets on the phone with me, it’s always a personalized experience and the relationship is very rare. I admire the professionalism. It is a place to be!

I was recruited August 2017. I was rush with my admission that they haven’t accept my transfer transcripts from my precious college. After a certain time they say it’s the student's job to get the transcripts even though, as a student you sent the information. For financial aid, these people don’t contact you at all. All they do is send a bunch of e-mails saying you are missing papers, but don’t bother to call you or make an appointment for you to come in personally to verify everything needed. Also, classes materials such as practice labs are OUTDATED. Current lab procedures do not match their current software versions of what you suppose to be working with. Professor are great. Deans do not really care and are not open to communication. School is too expensive and don’t get all you need. After a year, I have noticed it worse and worse.

Small Business Management/Entrepreneur - This class opened new areas in my life that I never would have participated or been introduced had it not been for the projects. Getting to select my choice for an interview with an entrepreneur was very exciting, and rewarding. I was fortunate to get the time to spend with an extraordinary person who gave me insight into other areas of my path. The discussions were great because of the style Mr. ** presented them.

The content of this and other courses offered exceeded my expectations. The hands-on computer labs contain relevant and up-to-date software, and the instruction was precise and comprehensive. I am pleased with the value the BIAM500 course provides and applicability in today's data-driven workplace.

I've had a wonderful experience with DeVry University while working toward my Masters' degree. The people there have been very hands-on and involved with my class requirements, financing, student success, and every question I have had. I would highly recommend this university to anyone seeking their degree in a non-traditional way.

Original review: April 22, 2018

I have come across many schools in my day, yet I have never come across a school like Devry University. What sets Devry different from other schools is it's learning environment, faculty, and resources. When it comes to the learning environment, I can definitely say that small class room sizes are the best. Far exceeding the lecture hall massacre you see in other universities. There are many locations throughout the United States. So if there was ever a need to move to a new location, you can feel rest assured Devry University will be able to accommodate most relocations. It's online environments are great, except for Math courses. I do not recommend taking an online course with math as graphing, having an area to show your work is not present. This is very much needed when looking for what areas you need improving on. Never-the-less I recommend the learning environment to anyone.

The faculty is superb, I cannot stress the importance of having a professor who has been in the field for several years can be to a student. I have been to many Universities in the Chicagoland area and no other University does this. Sure other schools have professors with credentials and qualifications, but not like the ones here. Devry University brings people with extensive work experience which no other school has done this far. Take a look at the University of Illinois for example; in which they hire their own students to teach as professors. Ex. My Anthropology Professor from UoI. DeVry University has the professors you need to get a feel for the environment. All any student needs to do is ask questions and the professor will gladly show you the way.

My favorite part about DeVry University is the resources it provides. Anything you might need for your career, projects, personal projects; DeVry University has it. Need to practice building a pc? DeVry University has the resources to help you build as many as you like. Need a certain tool to perform a task? Sure, print any tool you like from the many types of 3D printers it holds (Makerbot, Prusa, etc). NO LIMIT TO HOW MUCH YOU CAN 3D PRINT!!! Need a PC to work on your assignments? DeVry offers PC all over the campus, just hop on one and enjoy. Need a much more powerful PC? They have that too (Even though I think 64gb of Ram is overboard). Want to work with VR environments?

DeVry also has a variety of programs for you to use. I cannot stress, the level of resourcefulness DeVry has; it is incredible. Overall, I would recommend DeVry to everyone. To me anyone who thinks differently, either did not utilize their resources, did not have a great relationship with the professors, or simply did not try. I think it is great, and anyone who is willing to learn should give it try.

The college is a very professional Institution, with high-quality teachers, great programs which can work for the full-time student, full-time worker, young and old. If someone is looking to return school after being out for years, DeVry is a great choice.

Original review: April 18, 2018

I did my bachelor's degree in this same school. One thing that made me to do this review is because most of the teachers will go and extra mile just to see that the students are successful in their courses. For instance most of them try create a personal relationship with the students by giving out their phone number to them contact them in case they can't reach the teacher by email. There are times the teacher may not see the email immediately but when you call them you get them on the phone immediately and your problem will be resolve within 24 hours. Also most of the teachers are very patient with the student. I did experience all these while I was doing my undergraduate degree and I am still experiencing the same relation with my graduate program (Management). If they do offer a PHD program I will continue with them.

As far as their customer services is concern I will say they are extremely perfect. You don't have long wait on the phone to get an adviser. You are sure that your problem will be solve. All the academic advisers and the financial aid adviser are very friendly. They take your problems to be their problem and will do everything possible to resolve your problem. If they promised to follow up, know that they will follow up with you as promised. There is a continuity in their calls, in that it doesn't matter who you get on the phone they will picked from the last time you call that department and the reason for which you called. This makes it easier for your problem to be resolve without any waste of time. I have never regret been a student in this school. I am a proud student Devry/Keller Graduate School of Management.

I am able to work full time and still get my Bachelor's Degree in my spare time. If you are looking to upgrade your education or finish your degree, this is a great option. I found DeVry to be WAY better than Athabasca University. DeVry has applications that work and are easy to use and you can use them on Windows, iMac, iPad iPhone and Android. You get notices via text and/or email to keep you on track and they have better follow up/direction for the student than Athabasca.

I would definitely recommend Devry University online. The reason I say that is while attending Devry University, the time went by so quickly and I retained a lot of information and skills to apply to the REAL WORLD! I can honestly say that I've encountered some of the most incredible students throughout my 4-year journey. I will be attending Graduate School at Keller School of Management the end of April and I will be graduating from Devry University in September 2018. I would inform anyone that wants to attend college, go because it is NEVER TOO LATE!

My schedule is very tricky because I work 50 hours (mandatory) a week. I have two children and a husband at home. There are a lot of things that stop me from being able to attend campus classes. I like that Devry not only offers online courses, but they do have campuses as well that are available if you can fit it in. Their graduation ceremony can be attended by both online and campus students. The professors are very knowledgeable. There are some things that they need to fix with their online environment. Some of the instructions are not clear, and participation is lax. It would seriously help if all students would participate or be removed from groups, but that relies on school policies. Overall, I have had a great experience with financial aid, and I also feel like I am learning what I need to learn for my business degree. Support is always available and tutoring services are great.

The DeVry University experience thus far has been a good one and the tools that I need to be successful in my pursuit of a BS degree are provided. The management at DeVry are purposed to help students attain their goals and they have demonstrated that to me on several occasions already. I am a proud DeVry University student and I am also proud of my school. It is a needed resource for returning students that work, or are seeking a second career. I'd like to see it stay around for future generations to use.

DeVry University is an excellent place to obtain an education. Keller Graduate School of Management has been very instrumental in providing a convenient online learning experience for me. The learning tools are high tech and up-to-date, and the professors are knowledgeable and most importantly caring. In a few months, I'll have a Masters Degree from an accredited school, that is respected around the world. DeVry University's Keller Graduate School of Management is my recommendation to anyone working full-time while trying to raise a family, who wants to continue their education and actually complete their venture. I highly recommend the DeVry University learning experience for all students.

DeVry University, Newark CA, Campus - I just would like to say, I am very proud to be a DeVry Alumni. I finished my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, held down 2 jobs, While working a graveyard shift and am a single mother of a 12 year old daughter. I couldn't of done it without my own determination and DeVry University having my back. From the bottom of my heart, I would like to thank the whole DeVry faculty for making sure that my education was their #1 top priority at all times. What I've learned from being a student and now graduate, is that you hold the keys to your own destiny. Thank you :).

Devry University's Graduate Program is a quality education. I've completed all courses except one online and feel I gained a more valuable education than if sitting in a classroom. The criteria is quality and substantive, set milestones, expert professors, and good use of technology. I recommend the Devry Graduate Program for any professional serious about earning an advanced degree to further one's career or to just remain fresh and up-to-date in one's chosen field of study.

Medical Billing and Coding - I just wanted to take the time to say that I would highly recommend Devry University to anyone of my friends or family members. This school is up to date efficient and like a big family. Ever since the big switch in the canvas program the online courses has taken off. They have well engaged instructors and very good student resources, the technical team is amazing as well. I would recommend anyone to come and experience DeVry to further your education.

Original review: April 7, 2018

I had originally planned on attending a local community college, however upon learning of their class scheduling and attendance requirements, I had to look into other options. I am a single mom and I work part-time, so I needed classes that would fit my lifestyle. Devry University did that for me! Enrolling was so easy and everyone involved was so helpful and understanding. They took the time to explain what Devry is all about, from beginning classes to graduation I knew every detail before I even enrolled. Classes are great! You have access to an actual professor and interaction with your classmates. Assignments are completed from week to week on your own schedule, which really helps me continue to take off all my responsibilities and still go to school! I couldn't have asked for a better school and I highly recommend Devry University to anyone who is looking to further their education!

I do not normally write reviews but as my experience at DeVry has been so disappointing, I felt the need to write this review to deter anyone else from making my mistake. This is the first school I have been in that is simply money orientated. They have made multiple errors: the departments clearly do not communicate so when you think you have resolved something you end up repeating yourself all over again leading to inconvenient holds on your account. The classes are a joke, I thought I was back in high school because that is the level they work at. Correction, high school was more difficult than this school.

If you're paying over $4,000 every 8 weeks I actually would like to learn something. I'm not just doing this for a piece of paper; if I were, I would have chosen a cheaper school. Most of their core classes are online which no one tells you when you register; yet, they still charge you the amount as an onsite class. Why would a school put the most difficult classes online I do not know. So many students have complained that their grades are low and that they have struggled greatly because the online classes are poorly formatted or they cannot reach their teachers. Please, I urge you to really reconsider if you have thought about applying here. I cannot wait to transfer out! Go somewhere else. There are other schools for the same price with a better education.

I have to say, I was a bit skeptical of the 8 week semester block style at first but after being medically retired from the US Army I was looking for something to fulfill my time and advance my education to begin a new career field and I feel like I hit a home run with DeVry. It's 8 week courses which allow you to go at a little faster pace and get through quickly but they still do a very good job of making sure you get all the information required and are actually learning. Most professors had at least their master's with, the majority having a PhD which is impressive to know that I'm being taught by some pretty knowledgeable people. Even if the classes seem to move a little fast there is tutoring available whenever it works for you for help with anything. So it really assures you that you'll LEARN the information rather than just pass a class. Very impressed so far. I am 68 hours in and love it.

Most of the Professors that I've had at DeVry have their PhD which is quite impressive. It gives me reassurance that I am getting the best education that I can with the highly qualified teachers. I also really appreciate the online courses and its platform. The platform is easy to use, easy to navigate, and presented supplemented material quite well. I have attended DeVry since 2014 and would recommend this institution to anyone who is looking to return to school. Their GetSet environment encourages students to discuss real topics with one another and help each other navigate through real-world school and life balance. I love it!

Original review: Feb. 26, 2018

As a student in need of academic accommodations, I tried emailing and calling the Office of Student Disability Services at DeVry University. However, the phone number provided by advisers and in the syllabus is invalid and all emails sent were returned as undeliverable. It took more than 2 weeks, numerous calls to advisors, and the assistance of 2 different deans and the assistant director of student central before I was able to get assistance. Once I got my academic accommodations approved I was sent a notice of approval and my professor was sent one which was different than what I received.

Mind you, my request was approved 2 days prior to my class ending and although the professor told the dean she would allow me to submit my missing assignment once my accommodations were approved, she still refused to allow it. So now at the last day of class I still cannot submit an assignment from week 4 because of DeVry's negligence and my professors refusal to abide by my accommodations. In addition, my professor's policy on extensions states that any medical reason must be documented. So I had to give her my personal medical information even though I'm protected under the ADA. Yet she still refused to give me a 2 day extension.

I have nothing but great things to say about my experience at Devry University and Keller Graduate School of Management. I earned both my Bachelor's degree and MBA while working full-time and balancing family responsibilities. Devry gave me the flexibility I needed to be successful both in the classroom and in my career. I found the practitioner style of teaching especially helpful as it allowed me to apply what I was learning directly to my current job (which was a nice change of pace from my experience at a more "traditional" university previously). I highly recommend both Devry and Keller to any working adult looking for a credible and flexible program.

I started to Devry as online student in July 2016. Brittany helped me get all enrollment requirement done and was always available for questions and encouragement. I was in the billing and coding certificate program. I was satisfied with most of my courses. The only hiccup was when I took my first coding class ICD-10-PCS. The first week we had no instructor. She apparently had an illness. The rest of my classes were like clockwork, I always was able to get assistance from student services or tech support when I needed it.

Most of my instructors were available in a timely manner. Dr. ** taught pharmacology and was awesome. After completing my certificate program, I took the coding practicum with Dr. **. She is awesome and I highly recommend her and the practicum. I feel the practicum has prepared me for the CCA exam. I loved attending classes at Devry and although I haven't worked with career services, I plan to be in touch with them and expect the same professionalism I have found at Devry.
