Original review: Oct. 27, 2022

To start, I would like to say that I'm going back. I was nervous going back to school after so, so many years, but I digress. From admissions, to the professors, the experiences I've already had are ones of surprise and gratitude. There are so many resources and opportunities for learning and getting help if you're struggling. The professors are always available and responsive along with the tutors who can get you through any problems on-the-spot. The that I find here at Devry is that they want you to learn and succeed and that's exactly what you need whether you are a recently graduating High School Student, or someone who wanted to go back to school to enhance their future... I've been an online student and somehow I do feel like Devry is right there with me. Thank you, and good luck!

At first, I chose DeVry for it being a well-known school. Then I started my first semester. The teachers are GREAT!! The teachers are always making sure that you try to have your homework turned in on time. The live class discussions are a good way to teach, showing how to do the end-of-week projects and the teachers can also help with anything that a student might be having trouble with. Career services offer a lot of helpful services for students. I highly recommend DeVry as a college for people to go to. Online or In-person or Both. Thank you for accepting me at your college DeVry.

Accepted VRRAP for veterans and got me signed up and taking classes. I had not been in school for about 6 yrs and Devry made it easy to transfer credits and help me find the classes necessary to fulfill the requirements for the Cyber Security Certificate.

I started DeVry later in life so I wasn't fresh out of school. I was worried at first that I wouldn't be able to keep up with the flow of things, keeping up with my full time job, taking care of my family and everything life has to throw at you. DeVry is very good at making me feel comfortable and knowing that I have readily available resources.

My time at DeVry has been great. First of all they got me on board with a target major in mind, working with me for three weeks to figure out my benefits from my time in the service. The classes are great. They are set up for our success as students and it seems like the professors will stop at nothing for us to achieve that. I am beyond impressed with DeVry University and am doing great pursuing my degree. Bravo!

Original review: Sept. 12, 2022

I graduated from DeVry in 1985 with a B.S. in Computer Information Systems. I was a transfer student from a top state university. The class sizes were very small compared to the huge university classes I was used to. I liked the one-on-one attention that was available due to the smaller number of students. It was not online back then. We had all-day in-person classes. I already had all the liberal arts classes and wanted to finish up quickly and get the remaining computer courses I needed, so I chose to go to DeVry to finish up. I had 2 job offers within a month of graduation. I just retired from one of the top software companies in the US after 35 years there making well into the six figures. I was pleased with the education I got at DeVry. I cannot speak for the university today, but back then, it was a good place for me to finish my education.

I came to DeVry only because I was granted a scholarship and I had a military discount which was supposed to make my tuition free. I started the semester and was told to wait for my scholarship to clear in my account because it takes time. Fast forward to the end of the semester and I have a $1300 bill from them. I call them AGAIN and they tell me I was denied the scholarship because I am military affiliated. They never sent me a notice, never called me, never made any attempt to communicate with me. They swindled me out of my money. And, I found out later that the classes that I took are not even transferable credits. Don’t waste your time or money with them!!

Melissa **. This lady is the reason I am where I am, due to her kindness and caring heart. I have never been taken care of like she has helped me out in my academic career. I was a confused Community College student 2 weeks ago, and now I can say I am one year away from Accomplishing my dreams. All due to Melissa **.

Hard workers, always check up on you and your classes. They are almost always free to call. The professors reply to emails in a day. They also helped a lot with my VA documents. I got my GI bill as soon as the first payment was due.

DeVry University is more of a scam artist than focusing on your education. My mother was sick and I had to withdraw from my classes. I withdrew in time according to the policy, but was still charged a prorated amount, resource fees, book fees, student resource fee, and another fee that was dated for July 2017, which I didn’t attend the school at that time.

They really do just give you A’s. Basically they are stealing your money and just passing you along to keep taking your money. Once you leave they will hit you with a lot more charges. Please do not be fooled by the fluff. I did my research and DeVry is known for overcharging students and lying about their retention rates. President Biden ended up paying a lot of students for this scandal. Do your research. This school has just found a better way to hide their scams by creating nonsense policies.

I am a 37 year old professional who wasn't getting where I wanted to be in my career. I had been told I needed a degree to go further. So I researched schools and DeVry came up as a university that my company gave tuition reimbursement for. So I called them up and had a long chat with the advisor. He was wonderful. He answered all my questions. He was patient and kind. I never once felt pressured into applying for school. I did however apply and it's the greatest decision I've made. The classes are faced paced but the way its designed, they are easy to follow. I haven't had a professor or spoken to an advisor who wasn't 100% on board with helping me reach my goals! I am so thankful I chose DeVry for continuing my education.

DeVry has by far exceeded my expectations. I have been out of High School for over 35 years and was very nervous about attending college at this stage of my life. I attend DeVry online. All of the people I have been in contact with since I started my Program last July, have been very supportive. Around every corner there is a staff member that will help you through anything needed (Professors, tutors, librarians, financial aid, career support), to name a few. The courses are laid out very well and easy to follow. If you are looking for a Medical Billing and Coding Program, or any program, I highly suggest checking out DeVry University.

I began in 2018, the advisor was absolutely amazing. The process was easy and they truly care about your success. I decided to obtain a BA and I get to walk the stage in June! I'm now working on my MBA! The entire team has been there every step of the way. The support they offer to help you achieve your goals is inspiring, I gained so much more confidence in myself. I never thought I'd be where I am today, I'm grateful for DeVry and its staff. Truly life changing for my family and I.

I started at DeVry with the intention to get my bachelor's degree in a management field with a specialization in Finance. From day one the student advisors keep in touch with you and make sure everything is smooth from the registration to simply attending your classes. I worked full time retail and wanted a job as a Financial Analyst. After 2 years, some help from career services and thanks to my degree I got just the job I wanted. They do their part at the University and get you set up for a new career path. The rest is the work and effort of the student themselves!

I picked DeVry because they were doing online instruction before Covid-19. This was the right choice. The instruction is great!!!! I like the pace at which the instruction is delivered. I also like the eight week class structure. I have also met some very prominent instructors that were more than qualified and delivered some great instruction.

Original review: March 10, 2022

I started at Devry in October 2021, as I write this I have withdrawn and am looking to transfer. First the positives. The Devry Portal always worked and was easy to navigate. The Staff was helpful, but I will say when I was signing up they called so much it was borderline harassment. The Negatives. All of the learning platforms that connected through the portal were very glitchy. Devry is expensive for what you get. I did feel, as many others that A's were handed out. I tested this by turning in a junk paper and received 100% on it. On the live assignments, the teacher frequently did not understand the assignment and was walked through it by a student. I would not recommend Devry for anyone serious about learning and being prepared for your career. If you want easy A's, it is the place for you.

In CEIS 101 I learn how to build a smart home security system. I have fun building the smart home security system while I face the challenge along the way. In the discussion question, I learn about the 5G network, computing, and VPN service. There are weekly class recording links that were helpful for me to comprehend this course. The Professor at DeVry University is very helpful, friendly, and understanding. I think you should take the time to look into this school where every career you planned on doing is worth the time.

Considering DeVry is a great opportunity for me because they have all what it takes to achieve. Starting from the non-academic staffs to the main academic staffs are all nice people, and they are always ready to assist. The most importance experience is, they have the latest technology resources to learn, and it is a great opportunity to acquire all these skills with competent lecturers. Engaging in DeVry really worth it.
