Class action law suite wanted!
May 3, 2012
I want my money back! Realistically I want DeVry to pay back the loans they manipulated me into taking out and lied to me to agree to. I wish I would never have heard the name DeVry and would agree to a class action law suite if given the chance. All I want is the loan that was supposed to cover my education to get my degree paid off. Nothing more. They need to stop ... [Read more]

Good, but not great. Expensive, but the investment paid off.
April 11, 2012
I graduated in 2007 with a BA in Business Administration. Later I went on to a prestigious University, and earned an AACSB Accredited MBA. I graduated from high school in 2001 with honors and in the top ten percent of my class. I had applied to and had been accepted into a number of prestigious public and private university's. I was really excited, and couldn't wait to start my college experience. However, Life had other ... [Read more]

No issues with DeVry
May 17, 2012
I generally don't understand when I see horrible reviews of DeVry. I guess everyone has their own situation. I have been an undergrad student at DeVry for the last 2 years. I am a former US Marine and current member of the Illinois National Guard. So maybe I have a different perspective. But I am a professional working adult who also has National Guard responsibilities. I simply do not have the time to go to ... [Read more]

Class Action Law Suit
September 28, 2012
Like a number of people who have posted on this site and many others I agree that DeVry was the biggest mistake of my life. The recruiter said it would take only two years to get the degree (did not say if you go full time and I worked full time). Said they would transfer credits (they didn't even though they were from accredited schools and programs that I had to retake with DeVry). Said ... [Read more]

Business Mgmt.
January 30, 2012
Going to devry ruined my life, Costs about $60,000 for bachelors program and after interest on loans paying for next 15 years I will end up [aying over $100,000, ne credibiliity in these degrees in job market, no jobs. Can not pay loans. This for profit school is a scam. Stay away go to conventional schools that may take longer but degrees have more credibility and will be much cheaper. [Read more]

Poor Customer Service
April 11, 2012
I have been a student in DeVry starting 2008; I was contacted and recruited by DeVry, while I was attending CCAC. Before I joined DeVry I was accepted to CCAC and US Air Force Reserve with my High School Diploma from India, as well as in DeVry itself. I Have a Cumulative Total of 69.00 Credits, 52 Hrs Completions and a GPA of 2.5085 from CCAC. Out of the 69 Credit from CCAC 43 Credits ... [Read more]

RUN FAST!!!
March 14, 2012
The website, administration, classroom deliver is archaic, the technology is so bad, it's actually worse than the old school versions from the 90's. It is severely inconvenient, very unfriendly for working adults. It's is a for profit school so they rip you off. A simple request takes days to weeks to complete and you have to jump through ten hoops. If you want a transcript you have to call the school, wait for them to ... [Read more]

I finished my degree back in Feb. 2010. I enjoyed my time online. The classes only last 7 weeks and 4 days including exam time. They are fast paced, but manageable working full time. Some classes were tough and others easy, but that is with any school program. You have to put in an effort to reach your own learning goals. I finished my degree with a 4.0 grade point average (that was my goal from the start). I learned a great deal and updated my skill set across the board.

I will be entering the job market next week (not in USA, but europe). I believe that the degree will help me land a position.

Devry is a nationally accredited school, why would you ever go there? The credits will not transfer to any regionally accredited college or university. Why not go to a "normal" college? 

They promise a degree in .5 of the time. If it's too goof to be true, odds are it is.

DeVry is REGIONALLY Accredited by the North Central Association. Why don't you take a look www.ncahlc.org. They don't promise anything. If you attend classes year round, you can get your degree in 2 years and 8 months. Every DeVry has a "Plan of study" to show you exactly how to get it done in that time and exactly what classes you will be taking if you stay attending classes full time. Any it's cheaper. 

Do your homework! I can really tell NONE of the complainers on the board have even looked into the facts! The liars I see are the one's on this page who have NOT done there homework or sought out to find the FACTS! I see no experts on here. 

EXPERT ADVICE: If you thinking about attending college. Go check out your options. Don't wait to the last min. Fill out your applications and get your FASPA done. Make sure that school has the degree program your looking. DeVry University is not for everyone. After your FASPA is done then see what you have been accepted for and look at your bottom line (COST) and apply for scholarships. 

THEN: Choose the best school that's right for you base on which one will give you the best bang for your buck. DeVry University also has their own scholarships. Also look at the career stats. See what the previous graduating classes have got. I can tell you DeVry University has those stats and shares them on every interview as they are proud to do so. Do your research and make the right choices. Don't base a decision on someone who has not done there homework or can NOT back up what they say with FACTS.

You need to read my dealings with devry and I don't think people would take the time to come on a college review site if what they were saying was not true . As for myself I have no reason to lie when the truth tells the story. If you read my review you will see that I never even attended devry or took one class, yet they insist I owe them over 1000.00 dollars. If I could scam money that way I would be rich not to mention a crook. But I would never do such low down rotten scams as devry has no problem doing.

mostly @Devry=SCAM!

Took some time to skim through all the mess to try to find some valid arguments, hard to find when most of the posts are from either scorned lovers of Devry or current lovers of Devry.  One poster that did concern me was Devry=SCAM! Talk about a woman scorned, WOW! Since I know you troll this site, please answer these questions.  You said you got the interview but they laughed you out the door? Who is the they and also if they called you in for the interview because of you employment history with Cisco (which I highly doubt you had) they had to have seen you had a Devry degree.  Are you saying they purposely called you in to laugh at your degree from Devry? Again please post the company and the HR manager that did this to you since by the way you hate have to remember.  Also a poster asked you to post the link for the "Devry Grads Need Not Apply" jobs and you said I am going to post the links...and again by the way you have proven you whole-heartily hate Devry by posting here almost non-stop for a year, I know if you had the legitimate links you would have posted it a million time over but yet not a word like we should all forget. Just copy paste same rants.  I also don't believe you about USC, please!! What class did you graduate from again, who was your professors? Just name one that you can't find with google search. You mean to tell us that you had options that included USC but you chose Devry instead? Devry wouldn't choose Devry if they had USC as a option...smh. Are you going to say it was because someone at Devry told you so? Really? If they told you that the school was made out of gingerbread and yummy gummy gumdrops would you have also believed them?  How about you send me 10K and I'll send you 20K in return? I promise, just send it and wait for it.  Either you made a lot if not all of your argument up or you are just not that smart, and that's the nicest way I can put it without going ham on you. I don't work nor go to Devry, just doing some online research on what schools I should use my GI bill on.

I hear so many negative comments on Devry college. I think that many students believe that professors are supposed to just make you know the information. I think that students who have written negative things about Devry expected to all of a sudden be brilliant and extremely smart, and when classes were over and they discovered that they were not smart after all of the classes attended, they began to rip devry. to be honest, devry professors are really there to assist, they provide you with information and where to get that information in order to enrich your mind. It is really up to you what you learn based on your own responsibility to learn the subject. I have attended for 3 sections and the work has been challenging. The text books don't lie. They do have information on those textbooks and if you  read them, you will find out that the textbooks does have vital information that would enrich your mind. but for those who say devry college is a waste, it is like any other school. you go to class, you listen, read, learn, and will be as educated as a Harvard graduate.

I had gone to College of Westchester in NY and started to go to Devry, Chicago in 2010. I didn't graduate from College of Westchester, but wanted to continue my education. Devry made me take 3 entry exam tests, and on top of it they transfered in 14 credits from College of Westchester. So either Nationally or Regionally accredited, isn't a big deal. I currently work at a large firm in downtown Chicago, and my manager who graduated from University of Chicago, said to me that Devry is a great college. So far, it's not that easy, but if you try hard you will get what you want.

I have read the same thing about DeVry as I read about ECPI "A degree from this college is not accepted by employers."  If this is the case then what degrees ARE accepted? Only ones that take four years to obtain from the same types of instructors that are being maligned here and on the ECPI board as well?  At an even higher cost because there you have to pay for your books as well?  After reading the posts here as well as for any college that offers a faster degree for those of us that are older ie; nearly fifty, what options do we have?

From what I've been reading from all the naysayers; what's the point of trying to go back to college at all?  Why bother to further yourself if no one is going to just hand you all the knowledge and skills you require to make it in the world?  God forbid someone should actually put some effort into getting an education. 

I worked for nine years in Internet Technical support for a regional ISP.  I can tell you from experience; a degree doesn't make a whole lot of difference.  It's the person that is what matters.  I currently do not hold a degree and I am finding that I need one to return to the workforce again if I want to get a job in ANY sort of IT position.

After reading these reviews, if I were to base my decision to get a degree on them, I would not attend ANY "advertised" school.  And I can tell you, in Central Virginia, new ones are cropping up every week.

I am a professional in my field and have been attending DeVry. I can tell you that this school is well respected in the field otherwise I would not be attending it. I have helped hire engineers and other tech folks during my career and if DeVry is on their resumes it will show me that they are ready for work. I went to DeVry and now I have been managing and worked on engineering projects. Let's be smart people, let's start respecting our American Institutes and let them teach us to become successful!

please for the love of god people, stop crying about devry, im going to go to devry in jun and start my degree for game and simulation programming ive had a few hicups with not getting contacted but dont act like devry is the only school who forgets to call people once in awhile, but im also going to irving texas and its one of devrys best schools. and further more alot of you think oh its for profit so if i pay you i should get my degree without work and i know some of you people think your entitled to it because you paid every school you pay stop blamming one because you fail and refuse to try your best. ive met students who got hired on the spot for the stuff they can do. and devry has up to date tech, just take a tour if your so unsure ask to sit in on a class they will let you im sure but i guess alienware. and mac's are out of date. and dont bitch about alienware its costly and your paying for brand... welcome to the real world you pay for apples name to

avoid Devry at all cost!!!!!! A good friend of mine, who is also a military veteran, chose Devry to complete his education. They completely scammed him!!! They took all his GI bill money and then wanted more money for him to get his Associates degree. And none of the classes at Devry will transfer, unless you are willing to pay them extra. Complete scam!!!!!!!!

I was recently told by a Real Estate management company that DeVry is not accepted as Education as it relates to an Accounting Degree.  I interviewed there in 2007 and it was not an issue then but in 2012, it is now a grounds for discrimination before getting to the interviewing process.  DeVry is like any other school.  You study and pass your required courses.  I loved it since you could attend all year long to finish your degree faster.

I am currently enrolled at DeVry and am now looking for a new school. In, the beginning I was mislead and now I am losing my Bright Futures. DeVry states that if they mislead someone, they will take responsibility. They have yet to do that. My academic advisor from the beginning has gone MIA. They say she is out of the office but I haven't been able to get a hold of her in months. If someone is out of the office, usually I get an automated reply saying they are out but I haven't gotten one from her. I have been pushed to talk to multiple people who also know nothing. This school can not be trusted with your scholarship money.

DO NOT GO TO DEVRY!!! You will be riped off. I worked there and they're all about sucking students dry. I was a student and employee. Erika Oris, Mark Buck, Shelly Debios are the worst for California. I have  heard them say with their own mouth..."it's about the business not the students"
They charge 10K per semester and you get "online" access. How is that a university? They also purchased their accrediation and pay their admissions advisors high salaries. There are admissions advisor that make over 100k a year lieing and selling students about DV ( I know them by name). Your best bet is to attend a real college. The govenment recently took away Cal Grant from DV...that alone otta tell you something. You will regret it if you even just take one class!

I can't speak for every student that goes to Devry but I cant talk about my experience. I recently attended an online Intro to Programming C++ class and it wasn't too bad until I started struggling. I contact my teacher on a Monday to tell him where I was stuck and ask for some guidance and received an answer on Thursday. Now for anyone that's attended Devry you know that every Sunday is the start of a new week so that left me 3 days to try and figure it out. I responded again on Thursday about another area that was difficult for me and didn't get an answer until Saturday night. I didn't pass the quiz which I was ok with but this pattern kept up for 3 weeks. I finally had enough and when I messaged the professor and also copied my academic advisor as well. I received a response with the hour. I couldn't believe it so I tried it again without copying my advisor and it took a whole day. Once again I copied my advisor in the message and within the hour I had a response. Again I'm not trying to speak for all of Devry but professors that act like this make it difficult for students like me that were struggling. It also makes the teachers seem like they don't care and honestly it only takes one bad experience to leave a lasting impression.

Attend DeVry ONLY for their prestigious TAC/ABET-accredited deerges in Engineering Technology. These are as good as in any university and DeVry structures the deerges for graduation in three years. (This offsets the high tuition costs).HOWEVER, DeVry is near-worthless for any other deerges.

I hate to see people who give reviews because things did not go their way.  I got my BSBA from DeVry and I landed a great career in my degree field my annual salary is over 60K.  WThe people that write bad reviews are people who dont get what they want, are very picky, lazy get low grades and expect to be treated like gold?.  Some students only go to school and expect student refund checks they have to pay back and then complain about not getting back enough. Let me tell you I went to University of Florida and I could not take a course I wanted because it was not offered anytime soon, it was theory based and learned nothing.  At Devry my courses were application based and I learned alot.  So we cant compare apples to apples.  If you want to get ahead in life you must take initiative and do well in school.  I work for a very respectful Bank and have a wonderful career.  I also never had problems with faculty.  I also read that paper work gets lost, oh well things happen anywhere and also if you pay attention to detail things are done faster.  My point is that if your lazy and hate school dont blame anyone for your failures.  If you want facts talk to the board of education, research government websites.  Talk to alumi's of Devry and if any one is aware they have olympic athletes in the olympics that are Devry students. Anyone dare to challenge me on facts , bring it!

I graduated from DeVry with an Associates Degree and I think that it is a good school.  It is more expensive than others,  so you definitely have to weigh all of your options before deciding on which school to attend.  

It is very hard right now to find a job in the field, not because of DeVry but simply because there are so many people out there who are applying with varying levels of experience.  You can't blame the school you went to for your lack of education, you get out of it what you put into it.  Going to school online takes a lot of discipline and concentration to stay focused and learn the subject matter.  Bottom line is, if you want a decent education, make certain that you can afford to pay for it and study very hard.  Nothing in this world is handed to you without consequence.  I am going to be paying for my schooling probably until I am 65, but I also began later and I really wanted to go to this school.  I'm proud of the education that I received, and I accept that I will be responsible for finding a job as well as paying back my loans.  It is on my shoulders to find my way in this world, I paid DeVry for the tools, it is up to me to use them....

First, I bet 90% of the people who talk trash about DeVry here probably failed out or were kicked for poor academic performance (or didn't even go there for that matter).

For what it's worth, ALL schools have professors who will treat you poorly if you don't respect them, and some that just suck at teaching. (Trust me, I've been there and experienced it elsewhere far worse.)

True statement: You get out of school what you put into it... (ANY school, including DeVry/Keller)

I have less than 3 semesters to go in my BSBA degree at DeVry (mostly online) and carry a 4.0 still, but only with the effort I have put into keeping my grades up. College isn't easy people, they are not going to spoon feed you through and pass you just to move you out of the system like you are still in HS.

My wife went to DeVry for her Bachelors and then Keller for her Masters. With no experience whatsoever, 8 months before she even finished her MBA, she was hired at a large international company making over $60,000/yr in the Midwest. (If you've ever lived or worked in the Midwest, that is very good money straight out of school.)

Yes, DeVry is more expensive than state schools. But if you are an adult like myself, a state school is simply out of the question. (If I was still 18-21 than sign me up for a state school!) Yes, you will run into people in financial aid or other departments that are less than helpful at some campus, but I dare you to tell me that it is a problem exclusive to DeVry/Keller only. 

As "Newbie" posted recently, DeVry credits WILL TRANSFER out if you choose to go to another school for whatever reason.

As for someones statement that "companies don't hire DeVry graduates" or something to that nature. Really? Did you know that EXPERIENCE is more than half of what companies are looking for? Prior experience actually weighs more than education in the eyes of HR. This is why you "work your way up" to the higher paying jobs when fresh out of school unless you have existing experience that can supplement your education allowing you to get a better job right away. A college degree does give you some "experience", but more than anything, it means you accomplished something and can work as a team with others and so on. It doesn't matter if you got that degree from your local community college or from a DeVry or from your state school.

Fact: DeVry ranks 23rd in OEDb's Best Online Universities (out of 65).
Fact: DeVry has a 33% graduation rate (as of 2009 sorry, old data) Average of top 50 "online" universities is 36%. (For comparison sake, University of Phoenix has a 16% graduation rate!)

Well, this is my 2nd semester at Devry. So far, I like the it. I know its expensive, but I assure you all, the work is intense and hard. My professors are great. They communicate very well. The staff is always busy,  but has always made time for me whenever Ive call for stopped by there office. Now, I attend the Chicago facility, so maybe its the school and state. I don't know, but I have nothing bad to say so far. I am taking everything I can out of this place. And plan on graduating a year early, that saves me 20,000 in tuition. My major is electronic engineering technology. The credits do transfer at Devry (unlike UOP or ITT), I plan on  enrolling at MIT when I graduate from Devry and have already talked to a academic advisor at MIT. So, do your research people.

Again, DEVRY CREDITS DO TRANSFER!!! So, you don't have to completer your study at this particular establishment if your worried about finding a job according to a "college name basis". You can always transfer.,,, along with your EARNED credits from Devry. Do you research OFFLINE. Call another "name brand" college like I did. They will give you all the information you need......

DeVry is a for profit organization, their 45-48 credit hour Masters courses are overrated and a money making scheme.  Their instructors are encouraged to fail their students so that they students can retake the classes and pay the $2200 fee per class.  

I graduated with my Masters from DeVry and I don't wish anyone the same experience I saw others go through.  I have a 3.92 GPA, but seeing what my friends went through with DeVry was an eye opener for me.  Please go somewhere else that's not a "For Profit" learning institution.  University of North Dakota has a great online MBA which will only end up costing $15,000 in total.  There are many other "Non Profit" schools out there.  My Education ended up costing me $60,000 in student loans, I wish I knew about UD or Liberty University.

Keller Alumni, you are so on point!  I am currently experiencing a great deal more, but I have seek legal representation!  DeVry money scheme is finally going to be expose!  The reason why, because I noticed that DeVry have been doing some fraudulent transactions surrounding my student account activity.  As a disable student the SSA investigates fraud, that surrounds a disable student or worker on their program!  

I have a huge collection of evidence and I am so happy that I was able to say the information onto my usb flash-drive.  DeVry has charge me 4 times for the same fall tuition, DeVry refuse to reflect the many changes with my account activity so on, so on!  Nevertheless, when I made them aware of the problem.  DeVry tried to reverse their actions?  Go figure!

What are you talking about. Your statement don't make sense.  DeVry like many jobs you have to be independent.  You have ready and do a lot of research.  You are not spoon fed.  I enrolled in DeVry and scheduled in class in a couple of days once my credits were transferred from another college.  I have never had problem with finances and the instructors for the most part are encouraging.  
If you have good work experience most of the work comes more comprehensive.  A degree is about committment just like any other school.  No degree can stand up again experience.  I attended a state school and when i went into the workforce I was very green.  I hire college students from time to time and many of them jut don't apply themselves even in a position that does not require a skill.  I have to tell them to get off the phone.   All the time, they are slow and not movitavate.

I graduated from Devry and now working as a Lead Software Engineer.  In my opinion, DeVry has a good and a bad side.  The good side is there are certain classes with great professors who really care about the students.  The bad news is I got a Master degree from a state university and must say DeVry is not up to par with state universities (this is just my experience).  As far as Software Engineering is concerned, the education at the state university I attended outdid DeVry by far.  Very sad, but it's the truth.

I wouldn't recommend Devry University, as I had a very bad experience with them. It took me several moths to get enrolled. Complete incompetence and lack of care or support. I regret that I wasted my time on those guys, its the worst experience I ever got in my life.

DeVry is a BS school. I was recently a student there and let me tell you... They do not care about the students at ALL!!! I met one two professors that really cared about the students and they both told the class to go to another school. They are so un-professional. They sent my mom a refund check for 1,000+ dollars, and now I have to pay for it by not being able to take classes and have to pay the money back.. But the horrible thing about it is, they didn't tell me I was getting one so I could forewarn my mom to send it back. After she spent it, then I knew about it, it sucks. I need to be in school, and cannot find a loan company that even gives loans to students that attend DeVry.

If an individual has done their research regarding Devry's integrity as an education organization (for profit), they will have an understanding that the financial and time investment will not be conducive to the actual education received. The enrollment and finance staff, particularly at this location, lacks the ability to follow through with responsibilities, sacrificing the paying student's time and financial position. Be mindful when considering any type of affiliation with a Devry program. There are outstanding schools in this country, which honestly promote quality education and student assistance (as the student should be the priority); and if this is what you are looking for, Devry is not your ideal option, whatsoever.

I'm confused about the negative comments about DeVry University.  I graduated in 1992 from the Decatur, GA campus(CIS)and started working in my field 4 days before graduation. Career placement was excellent.  
I do agree with the comments about recruiting and cost however. They do try to get you in by any means necessary, (so please, if your'e not ready, don't do it) and it is more expensive than a state college, but once you're there, the programs are not lacking whatsoever. I've been in the field of Network Engineering since graduation, and have excelled, partially BECAUSE I graduated from DeVry. I've run into other grads at the top of every company for which I've worked. I say hang in there.

I am currently a Devry online student and with only 3 semesters to go, I really really HATE this school. I think it is the biggest money making scheme I have ever seen.  They do not care about students, half of the teachers don't teach they must just sit back and collect their paycheck.  I have a very good career already and only went to Devry to earn my associates degree just to kind of make of for skipping over college the first time and I regret all $35,000+ that I have given to these A-holes  every time I log onto my classes.  I would just quite and go somewhere else buy I am already so close I don't see the point in it now, buy hey why not throw a few more thousand their way!!

I am surprised to see so many negative comments about DeVry. Yes, it is not the BEST school in the world. If you are talking about the best, then go to Harvard or something. However, let me tell you my experience. DeVry has so much to offer and has its own advantages over many many schools in the USA. I am a proud DeVry graduate with BS degree in IT. I have been working in IT industry for last 3 years and I make over 150 000 usd a year now. So lighten up people! At the end of the day, it really depends on YOU!

What a load of crap. Go ahead and be proud of your BS DeVry degree in IT. Everyone knows there's not many reputable companies that would hire anyone with the paper mill degree you are so proud of.  For anyone to believe that you're making over 150 000 usd a year now in the IT business is unbelievable and we'd have to see the name of the company with your business card to believe such an delusional tale. Maybe you mistakenly added an extra 0 on that salary you supposedly earn at McDonald's flipping burgers.

LMAO, well depending on his or her experience.  I would not think any school you graduated from demands a 150,000 salary I do not care if it was MIT.  I'm sure it has nothing to do with the school.  DeVry is more for people who have experience in certain fields who want a degree to increase their salary or to enter management.  If you looking for a school with a big name then go to Harvard, MIT, Yale etc..  But remember this all schools have to teach at a universal level where everyone is able to work together in their field of choice.  Otherwise the school would not be accredited.  Looks like DeVry is back by some powerful organizations. Doubt they would be existing today if they were a poor school.

I am currently a student at DeVry and have found a lot of my classes to be challenging. So far I'm in my 5th semester and hold a 4.0 GPA in Business Administration w/an emphasis in Accounting. What is concerning me here is that there seems to be two polar opposites in opinion regarding whether a degree from DeVry is valuable in the job market or not. Some say it's great; some say it's terrible. So what is it? Facts please--no venting. Where do I find that stats? (Not the ones posted by DeVry because they can say anything.) As to the price of DeVry, I did check this one out and DeVry is more expensive than state universities (in Minnesota), and less expensive than private schools.

A degree is only one aspect of the entire resume. I would not simply hire an individual based on his or her level of education and the school's reputation (although it is significant factor). There are also other factors to consider such as work experience, professional certifications and the interview. Plus, there's really no issue which type of school is better (online vs. B/M) as long as the degree is accredited. Btw, even Harvard offers online degrees (do your research) and therefore, online degrees are not a joke. Moreover, if you perform unsatisfactorily at work, you will get fired in spite of the degree attained and its school rep.

I graduated with an NCM degree from DeVry University - Magnum Cum Laude. All of my instructors, Rudolph, Randolph, Brown, Kalke, Currie, etc. were EXCEPTIONAL. I am not looking for a job since I am already making good money. What I did notice is that DeVry U.(and ALL of the EXCEPTIONAL instructors)provided the tools for several steps beyond the degree description, namely starting my own IT business (which I am working on). 
In short: It was worth it, and I would do it again. If you don't realize what resources you have in front of you, no Ivory League name will help you realize this. It is up to you to recognize this unique opportunity to take this information and run with it to where you want to be in life.

Online degrees are a joke. If you want a good education, then enroll at a good university in your area. You will receive a better education, have the opportunity to interact face-to-face with other students and real professors, and have access to major library and other research resources that are the lifeblood of a well-rounded education. And, you won't have to face the constant questions about the credibility of your credentials. Seriously, if you were an HR professional, would you hire the person with a degree from a school like UCLA, Penn, Michigan State, or some joke like DeVry University? Be honest now. Don't waste your money for a piece of paper that no one will respect.

I recently stopped going to DeVry because of the lack of teaching expertise.  The "This is college, toughen up." ploy doesn't work when there's an actual absence of educational enlightenment.  Many of the teachers are paid to work one night a week per class and work their regular job the rest of the week during the day.  Most of the teachers I had didn't give a you know what about their students or education, they were just making extra money an easy way, many times with zero teaching credentials.  My campus hired the I.T. guy to teach Programming Logic and Design.  He had no training to teach and it showed.

Now that I have left they have created extra processes that take longer than the payment deadlines in order for me to even pay my tuition, chasing me for late fees like a criminal organization.  Completely unprofessional and I have been fighting it.

I work for DeVry in the admissions department. I was also a student at DeVry and now at Keller going for my MBA. I had a very good time at DeVry and grad. with a 3.2 undergrad. It's not an easy school. As far as the degree, I can tell NONE of you have done your homework. It's a regionally regionally degree which hold the same weight as the university of wisconsin. One thing I will tell you as I have worked at other schools, DeVry is one of the MOST ethical business practices. If I was to say or promise ANYTHING I was unable to deliver I would be fired on the spot. If so many of you have had such a bad experience, what did you do about it? If you where failing your classes, did you take advantage of the FREE help at the support center? I spent much of my time there as I'm not a big fan of math and needed some help. And for those of you who have your degrees and kind find a job, we are in a rescission. Just because you have a degree does not mean your going to get a job. They typically hold DeVry only career fairs twice a year. Did you attend? Did you sit down with your career services rep. and make sure you resume was up to par along with your interview skills? There are SO many resources but what I notice is NO one takes advantages of it! Who's fault is that really?

I'm surprised at all the negative comments regarding DeVry. I had a positive experience, however I went to Keller, their Master's program. I found the curriculum to be quite engaging, however I must point out that I did not do my degree online. I actually, physically went to class. It took me 2.5 years to earn my Master's degree, same as you would for a not-for-profit university. The staff was professional and very knowledgeable and I felt that the quality of education I got was comparable to any other school. Not once did I feel like any of the professors I had were sub par. I learned a TON of new material and I did it while working full time. Devry allowed me to go to school and work at the same time. Maybe the Master's program is different since it looks like no on on this forum, at least from what I've read, specified whether they were getting a Bachelor's or a Master's degree.

Last post was 3/15/09 and people still think I spend all my time here. lol  I will just take a couple of minutes to explain the situation of program accreditation with Devry.  If any of the recruiters say Devry has ABET, which is what you need to look for, you need to check more carefully.  ABET does not accredit the entire school but individual degrees.  After checking from last year, they have expanded their ABET degrees, the downside is it has not had any luck in the online department.  All of them are on campuses and they are only technology degrees which are dumbed down versions of engineering degrees.  Some idiot posted their boss had an electrical engineering degree from Devry, it isn't an EE, it is an EET which is two different degrees.  The EET being the lower degree.  Ask your enrollment schister if they offer ABET degrees online, if they say yes you know you are being played.  I did the same thing and they said yes, several years later in hind-sight, I wish I had this knowledge.

Hi,
  I have a BSTM from Devry. I also was a little worried about what an online degree could do for me. I am an injured USMC Vet, and I though this was a good option since I had to work as much as possible and raise my family. I got the degree in 2.5 yrs, and never looked back. I am at the same company, and I can tell you that the company is Very well known. I applied for a position in the IT Department within my company. I was just testing the waters so to speak. I didn't learn to much in my core classes, but I did learn enough to get a grip on what I needed to do. I actually got the job over several other applicants, and it was because of my own hard work, and what I taught myself. 
If I had it to do all over again, I would have went to a state school only because of the Name recognition. I know way to many engineers, and accountants, and the like that can barely tie their shoe. They all went to a state school. The problem is that you only get what you give sometimes. If you only dwell on the negative side of the school, then you will always come in last. 
I have since tried to go to another school and get a Masters, but only a couple classes transferred. BUMMER! I have never heard the do not hire Devry Grads at all. I do not make 6 figures, and I probably never will, but it is not because of Devry. All of the bashers out there have been wronged in their minds, and have legitimate issues. I did not have one problem at all because I went through Voc Rehab and the VA paid all and I never seen a single bill. I am glad I got the degree no matter how pitiful some may think it is. I am proud if it! I consider myself somewhat intelligent and I know I am going to go a long way where I am at. I am highly marketable right now, and I hold several licenses that my company utilizes. I am in position to be in a very highly paid and sought after position within the next 3 years. If I ever see a Devry applicant come through, I will not discriminate over anything else. Like I said I know way to many people that think that their engineering degree makes them smart. Most are wrong!

Seriously, why would anyone put themselves through the expense and trouble of a for-profit school?  How dumb can you be?  I went to school to be a STUDENT, not a CUSTOMER.

If you're so lazy that you want to be able to get your degree while at home, in your underwear, eating those really spicy Cheetos, then be my guest.  But don't for a minute think these degree mill "colleges" give you a better chance at anything in the real world.

No real university has the horrible reviews these for-profits do.  Don't be dumb, guys, I know LOTS about this and kinda run a situation to deal with help.

I hate Devry so much. I wish I would have just went to a regular University like my mom told me to. The teachers have no idea what they are teaching. I'm taking a Senior Project class w/ a teacher who thinks everyone is a damn accountant. The people who help you w/ financial aid are a bigger joke than the teachers. They don't believe in returning phone calls or emails. You have to go up there and almost act a fool in the office for them to actually get something done. The only person who I like is Tim. He helps me pick out classes. He is the only one who actually cares or at least seems like he does. Everyone can go to hell but Tim. lol...but like I was saying this is the worst school to go to. It's too expensive plus you don't learn anything. I signed up to get my Bachelors in Criminal Justice. Not business, not management, not accounting but Criminal Justice. Damn!

I am currently at DeVry and have completed 5 sessions (10 classes). I am seriously considering quitting the school. I feel I have pretty much B.S.ed my way through my classes and I have a 4.0. I purposely did a terrible job on a major course assignment, I did not read the guidelines for the assignment and it was a foreign subject to me. I created something while at work and submitted it without proofreading, I thought for sure I would get half credit--yet I received full credit and a generic comment such as, "I thought for sure I was reading a major companies SOP, great job!"

The rock that is most sinking is reading through my online discussions, hardly anyone can spell, capitalize, punctuate or use proper grammar. You can also see examples of this throughout the above discussion. I feel like I am going to school with a bunch of idiots and I do not want to be considered the same. And I am sure these idiots are receiving just as high of a grade, if not very close to what I am. 

Bottom line is I feel that I have not learned enough from these courses that will advance me in the job market. I feel at this point I should at least feel a difference in my technological skills and am disappointed that I am not becoming "tech savvy". It would be different if I were older, as I know tech skills--or any for that matter--become harder to learn, but I am young and feel that I grasp new things pretty easily. It seems those that are successful with DeVry were those that already have a background and general understanding of technology and their education was just polishing to advance them into a career. I am afraid the price I will ultimately pay will be a waste for what it would get me.

I had another observation I had and I think is worth telling you folks.

I currently work as a low level supervisor at a major hospital. We specialize in heart related procedures such as open open heart surgery, stints, valves, ect . .  A vast majority of our Doctor's and Surgeons are ivy league graduates such as Harvard Med and such prestigious universities. HOWEVER, the CEO of our hospital only has an undergraduate degree in Business Administration from Devry University and he is the top dog at the hospital making 2.4 million a year.

Moral of the story. Earning a degree will open doors otherwise unavailable without one. It's really up to you from there how far your degree will take you.

I would be lying if I didn't tell you that a Devry graduate managing Harvard med graduates isn't a hot topic around the water cooler and is viewed as kind of joke, lol.

If you don't believe me, just outside San Francisco you'll find the County of Marin. They will not accept a degree not issued by a college accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. 

Decriminalization or high standards, you decide.

Anyone can buy a degree from DeVry. It's all about the mighty dollar. My dog can get a degree from DeVry. Cobb Galleria location in GA is the worst. The administration is worthless and Deans are also. I was so disappointed. I truly wish I had  researched the school more other than word of mouth. I am glad I found out early.

I am a Keller student and right now I am working as a tutor in one of the Devry location. I teach math, accounting, and finance to Devry student. In my opinion, the quality of most of the student at Devry is very poor. I think most of them do not spend enough effort to learn. One of the student even could not read numbers. 1,020,000 was spelled as ten thousands twenty thousands. In my opinion, most of the professor just let the student passed a course without any understanding. Online and open book exam is a joke. Every one can find the answer in google. It is very easy. 

I will be graduating from Keller this coming June. I think the quality of the student at Keller is also so so. The exam is also very easy. The professor gave you all of the questions and answers. You only need to memorize the answer and you will get perfect score in the course. I have 4.0 GPA. I think the best way for you to prove your ability is by aiming for certifications that are accepted in the industry. CFA, CPA, PMP, etc.

You are not in school to buy a piece of paper. You are there to buy knowledge and to learn how to "Think". Companies don't just look at what is on a piece of paper. They look at what is inside you. You don't go to an interview to sell your degree; you are there to sell yourself.

I just encourage you to sit down and critically think your options through and do your own research from credible sources.

Good luck on choosing a school.

I graduated with a BSEE degree from the Univ of Colorado with a 3.4 GPA.  I have a good job with a leading Aerospace Company right now.  I decided to go back to school, but due to my location there aren't any State Universities around.  I decided to try Devry and I'm a little worried.  I signed up for the Game and Simulation Program.  First off is does cost a lot, and the financial aid people that work at these schools seem to be lacking simple addition skills.  They constantly take out loans in my name for different amounts, usually too much, and send me the difference.  Then they get my VA checks and hold them for 3 months before dispersing them.  Then they send me refunds and then a bill saying I still owe them money.  WTF. I'm halfway through my third semester and hope the classes improve.  I don't think I'm learning enough about each subject.  I'm doing my classes online because the first class I had was programming in C++ and it wasn't worth going to.  It was ran like an online course so I didn't see the point of showing up for 4 hours at a time just so the inst could read through slides.  The class started with 5 people.  On the first day, one had already dropped.  Throughout the 8 weeks two more had dropped.  I ended up taking the final with just one other person.  It seemed like the quality of students at Devry is also lacking.  I hope this degree is worth it in the end.  I've heard some people say that having Devry on your resume is a job killer, I'm hoping thats not true.  Guess I'll find out in a few years.

No matter what school you go to you have to work hard,  it will not be easy. Devry is great!  Stop being so negative because you have not worked hard yet. You must learn to crawl before you walk get as much experience in your career field as possible.  Just because you have a degree does not make you smart, look at the man in the mirror and ask youself what can I do to improve, maybe the reality of the matter is that you probably suck at job interviews.  Take responsibility for your future. It is not the schools fault.

I believe that my education at devry has been worth every dollar. I just completed my undergrad in feb. and due to the economy I have not been able to find a job yet. But I know with my positive attitude I will find something in the near future. in the mean time i have started classes for my mba so becasue i believe whent he dusty settles after this recession everyone will be hold some higher education and you need to be a step above the rest. that is my opinoin.

Devry is okay. I will not say it was a bad experience. I will say if you have a family it is the best alterative to gain your education while maintaining your home.

say what u will say its just my experience and ur right it is true to some extent that u get what u put into it but it also goes for the institution. good luck in your search for a college but good god dont ever go to devry if ur just outta college or plan on living in housing and are a full-time student.
P.S. devry is unfortunately an accredited school idk how but they are.
P.S.S. one other thing is that ive seen complete idiots pass classes from here for making BS posts online and showing up to class and trying  and i mean these folks i know are completely incompetent of ever running a home network let alone a huge business one.

part2 of 3
when i started almost all the profs. were full-time profs. and now the majority are part time instructors(not professors there is a difference) most class i sit for 4 hours while someone instructs me on the class(by this i mean reads from a pre-made slide show which isnt bad if the person reading it can relate it to a lab but there are no more labs you can see where im going)

I said i worked for devry, for the first half of 2008, during this policy change. i had so many students asking for standard classes or atleast compressed classes and i could not help them so i would ask ppl at devry what happen to the standard everyone is asking for this format of classes and from everyone that i talked to i got the same answer of its a corporate move we have no control over this, hmmm that sounds like a "idk but its not my fault" excuse or they just accepted it when it became law of the land. working at devry gave me insight into where devry was heading and i tried to deny it and not admit it to myself for a very long time it actually was the reason that i stopped working for devry i had broken my spirit at this moment i started to no longer like devry but loathe it i tried to stick with it just ride it out with a degree and never think of it again but its got so bad that i wont i refuse to call this my college experience damnit i didnt want a huge school or a lot of BS that u find at them but at least i get face time with the professors there and have class more than twice a week as a full time student. i didnt mention above but i was also part of DHC devrey housing committee which was kind of like a student government/activities for housing student that was fun until all the housing student (I.E. full timers right from high school) left then it became a ghost town with a handful of kids in housing that u never see cuz the majority do nothing but play WoW and games like it no joke its true, i then left DHC around fall 2008.
It is now spring 2010 im supposed to graduate this summer well by devrys calculations. if it had stayed the same and never changed id bleed red,blue,gold and white(devrys colors) overall my experience has been one of decline in social, academic, and management policy with this school. Once i am free from here ill put it all behind me and start with a fresh smile on my face at a new REAL college! i am one who enjoys learning i dont ever want to stop but devry has almost sucked all of my willingness to learn from me.

Part 1 of 2
i am currently enrolled at devry though hopefully not much longer.   i started in summer 2007 at the ft. washington campus just north of philly. i am a full time student & also worked for devry as a peer adviser. my experience when i first started was a great one had class 4 outa 5 weekdays great professors small classes and hands on labs. then around the beginning of 2008 devry made a few policy changes....
these changes were to the class formats offered at devry and how things were run. these changes were made on a business level and not an academic level. first they got rid of almost all standard classes(15 week classes with class multiple times per week) for 8 weeks sessions(terms was split into session A and B) classes (they offered both when i started).These classes were either accelerated or compressed. accelerated is once a week class for 4hours (@ night most likely 630-1030pm) with half the work online(this cuts out the hands on lab portion of the class. compressed is a little better its twice or thrice a week with lecture and lab days, compressed arent to bad. the accelerated classes are the norm now and the quality of education has fallen drastically. these 8 week accelerated classes arent bad if ur part-time or have a career but for a full time student fresh from HS it sucked i felt like i was being screwed-over on the very reasons i decided to go to devry (1. hands on labs 2. quality educator) figured it would be just like vo-tech in HS that's what the recruiter compared and ensured me it would be like... it was not:(

I like the post that Eric January 14, 2010 at 5:51 a.m. put up. He's telling the truth, why attend a school that has a bad rep? Attend a state school or even a community college or an ICUF depending on if you live in FL or not but still.... Do yourselves a favor. There are BETTER schools than Devry. And to the guy that said Devry tuition is close to a state school you must be on crack. 95% of state schools tuition range from $5,000-$9,000 a year. Mind you now Devry charges like $15,000 plus a year. You do the math.

Are you really that inept? Seriously?

People who DON'T have degrees are able to get good jobs, provided they have experience and the know-how. You're telling me that even with a degree, you can't go anywhere? Newsflash, guy - that's your fault. Not the school.  You're like any other student who believes that a college degree is a magical ticket to a career. That's just not true.

And people who claim that companies don't hire applicants from Devry? Complete lie. Why? Aside from the fact that there are actual statistics that prove otherwise, it borders on discrimination for an applicant who is actually qualified but went to Devry to not be even be considered. And your friends who work in HR know this. 

So, you're either lying about your "friends in HR" not hiring Devry grads, or you're just some flunkee who couldn't cut it, so you wanted to go to a community college instead. Or both. But don't act like you know what you're talking about, when it's ridiculously obvious you're making all that up.

Jobs hire based on QUALIFICATIONS. Not the pedigree of your school. Get that through your immature mindset and grow up.

I made the mistake of attending Devry. 

   Like most of the students there, I honestly busted my ass off going every night with a job during the day. After about a year and 17k in tuition fees, I started to ask around. I asked friends of friends who either were well established in their field or had HR positions. Honestly they all told me, at first, to keep working and study hard. After some time and more questions from me, they finally expressed to me that they don't hire Devry graduates. One friend told me,"I didn't want to hurt your feelings, you looked like you were enjoying Devry." In which I did, but because I was so caught up in the "I'm finally going somewhere in life" "The school just does not have the requirements that they look for. It's not a up to standard school" 

    I then went to enroll in a local community college to transfer to a cal state. I asked them if my classes at devry tranfers over. Only two out of the six classes do. And those classes were from the Electronic Engineering course. So if I wasn't in that course, I would have not been able to use those two classes. The rest is just a waste. I don't know about other states, but if a community college does not take Devry's core courses then who will.
 
    Please do your self a favor and re-think it if you are thinking about attending Devry.

    Negative reviews that out way the positives should be the first indication and deciding factors in selecting Devry. 

    The saying I keep hearing is: "You get back what you put into it" or something along those lines. It is true, but for Devry, you're getting something that is not worth it in the real world. I'm sorry but I've been out there asking questions and Devry just doesn't cut it.

DeVry is what you make it. Same goes for any other school one may choose to attend. I am a Devry Graduate. My experience has been satisfactory. The classes overall are decent. Just know this... You make the degree- the degree should not make you. What you put in is what you get out. So, with that being said, stop belly aching and clean your lenses and see Devry for what it really is.

I have given some cs types from devrie interviews for my employer. They certainly did not seem to be as desirable as those from more standard colleges. I think the problem is more with the type of person that would choose to go there rather than the programs themselves. I would suggest they are the next generation of pyramid schemers, looking for short cuts to success.

To all lies,

It’s really funny how recent college graduates come out of school thinking that they are going to get a job right off.   Well I have been in the computer field for over 20 years without my degree and I recently went back to DeVry for my degree.   Why is it that students who are unsuccessful at landing a job have to find blame for their lack of achieving their dream?  There are so many variables that you are not taking into account or have mentioned here. 
 1:  Do you have any networking experience at all and if no are the jobs you are pursuing beyond your level of expertise.  (Everyone has to crawl before they can walk) 
 2: A lot of what you learn in networking is a lot of OJT; your degree taught you nothing but theory.   3: Have you been proactive and gotten any certifications?  Most companies want these in addition to your degree.  
4: Did you have anyone take a look at your resume from a professional level?
5: Do you interview well, most networking jobs require a technical interview if you are doing badly on your technical then you need to go back through your books.  

From what you’ve told us you’re lacking and it’s not the school.

I don't get all this negativity about devry online, I just graduated in May 09 with a degree in Health Administration and as of August 09 I was hired by Providence Hospital as a Administrator. I love Devry University and have accomplished alot from their degree programs, I dont care what these twats been saying about them...they probably couldn't do the freakin work to begin with, alot of slackers it sounds like. So with my experience with Devry I will recommend Devry Online to anyone seeking a degree that doesn't want to take time out of working to attend campus classes.

Actually, I would like someone to call the Keller's hotline. I'm a Keller's student, MBA with CPA. CPA courses offered by Backer Review! really? You have to just look at their degree program, I started as a MAFM student but once I had enough of the accounting credit and since four of my MBA's courses were wavied I select a change. 

I looked at both NYU and Columbia college's degree program. But Keller's program is more focused and let me tell you something about the professors at Keller. I had professors who had PhD and MBA but as well worked in the industry for 10 to 20 years now beat that?

I rather learn from people who worked in the industry not some theory knowledged person. What do the companies look for? Education or Experience? Keller is perhaps more challanging then any other college. At undergraduate level...I took 6 course at a time and graduated with a 3.8 GPA but at Keller my GPA is not even up to 3.0 and I am studying full time taking two courses at a time and not working!!!!....

Here is an article about Devry published by the Hover Institution in Policy Review journal

Go to the website hoover.org/publications/policyreview/3567487.html


You can also verify graduation/employment statistics for devry at the US Dept of education. 

As some of the previous post were saying. Your career success depends on you. You are responsible for making your education worthwhile in quality that will make you marketable in the job market. Stop blaming your school.

Everyone today is being affected by the economy, regardless of his or her experience or educational background. Employers are slow and tight about hiring decisions. Similar to a previous post, I also have buddies (one with a PHD from a top traditional school, the other an MBA from a top school) that were laid off and unable to find jobs anywhere, including applying in other states. The PhD works as a mail courier and the MBA is a security guard. Both were very well educated with years of experience.

For all of you guys, who are disappointed over the job market, don't blame your school. No school guarantees jobs after graduation. We are in a bad economic period. Having a college degree does not make you immune. Hang in there, keep praying and apply diligence to all your job search efforts. Persistence will pay off.

By the way, Devry is very accredited and employers do rank them as a reputable school. They keep a list of employers who constantly, year after year recruit from them. You can confirm this by contacting the employers HR departments to verify.

All schools are "for profit". They have to be to sustain. Tuition is not ridculasly high for nothing. Even state schools are expensive. 

Devry's tuition is comparable to most state schools. And flexible schedulng (on-line classes) is the way of the future. Even Harvard and Stanford offer evening or adult edcuation.

Very interesting post. I beleive your success in any career is more about you rather then the school. You have to make it work just as you worked hard to earn your degree regardless of the school you earned your degree. 

I completed my degree (accounting) from Devry because it offered flexible class schedules. I was impressed every step of the way. I graduated, sat for the CPA exam, passed on first try. Now i have my own business after working for a large CPA firm. 

It's up to you how you want to suceed and prepare for a career.

Wow!..... Just want to enlighten all readers that State universities admissions will not hunt you down like Devry admissions did me. The financial and admissions folks at Devry are real sharks. I wonder if you people really believe the crap you promise students? Or is it just that you would cut any throat to get your salary without a care in the world about the debt you create for students? 

Devry employees know that this school is over priced and un-respected yet they continue to lie to their students with fake promises. This was the main reason why I chose to attend a State university. It was clear that Devry was out to make money at a heavy cost to me. 

Since I received my BA from a State University I would like to say that I did not pay a penny for it. That's right, financial aid covered the whole cost of my undergraduate education. It's clear that this would not have been the case if I had chose to attend Devry. I am currently in graduate school pursuing an MPA at another state university. The financial burden is still not even close to what Devry tried to put on me. If you have the opportunity to attend a respectable State university or any university with a good reputation for that matter, take it. The evidence is in the reviews here people. Why would anyone want to attend a school that has so much controversy over how respectable it is? 

I have a great job working in politics and public policy at the state government level. It did not cost me the financial burden that Devry tried to sucker me into to get here either. I will honestly say that when Devry University is mentioned, faces frown. Devry needs to establish a better reputation among employers and their students before charging so much money for the education provided. 

To all employees at Devry, don't get upset and try to post fake ads to combat the negativity; rather step up and be a leader and do something positive for your organization to change this negative reputation in a honest manner for a change. After all, the main problem is that too many people have been on the short end of the lies and promises they get from Devry. Fortunately for me, I ran from you guys and even had to change my number because you would not quit calling me after I met with your adviser. For those of you who are happy with Devry, I wish you the best. For those of you who think you got ripped off and cut short I sympathize with you. There is a cheaper way to reach your educational goals. And you can do it at a respectable university that does not carry the stigma that Devry does. 

In conclusion, shop around, do not get tricked by the money train.

I graduated DeVry University in 2006. I couldn't find a job in the accounting field. I went to work for a temp service and worked for the accounting department at Cardinal Health. I was told that I needed to work for a temp agency for 2 years to gain the experience I needed in order to get a permanent job with no experience. I loved DeVry. Whoever said it was easy is a liar. The classes are hard. The curriculum is focused and hard. I just think the real issue is that the people in the career placement department didn't know what it took to get a job as an accountant. I am now pursuing a MBA/MSEE I am hoping that this will bring me the competitive edge I need to get job. I think college is a scam. Not because it isn't needed, but because no one tells you that the degree you earn today will help  you AFTER you land a job. You will get a crappy job when you 1st get out of school unless you have a technical degree. Once you have worked at that crappy job for a few years, your degree will get you promotions. DeVry's website doesn't say the 93% of their graduates are employed IN THEIR FIELD. It says that 93% are employed. That is the truth. Student Loans are required to be begin repayment within 6 months. 6 months after I graduated I had a job. The same job I had BEFORE. I do not think it's a waste. I just wish they would educate their students more about the real world. My eyes are open now and I know that I have to take a 10-12/hr job at 1st in order to get a 40/hr job in the future. Excuse the few mispellings it is 3am where I am. = ) Hope this helps anyone considering going to DeVry.

Oh, and I went traditional not online.

Great posts I love an active debate about everyone's experiences with any educational institution. Before some of the folks put thousand of dollars towards a degree maybe they should have gone to a local community college or state university to see if they really wanted to go to college and meet the commitment and self discipline demands that any advanced education requires.

The next element I noticed were the questions regarding whether DeVry was accredited or not. I worked overseas where the employer and the government both verified my degrees were from an regionally accredited university in the US. DeVry and Keller both passed the test.

Having worked in the US and overseas I have worked with fellow degree holders from Oxford in England, to the University of Sydney in Australia. My educational and business skills were a definite match with my peers.

Income from my roles since receiving my degrees. Well I have held executive roles with a Fortune 50 company and was one of the top 150 paid employees earning over $1.7 million in one year. My average income since receiving my MBA has been around $200k before bonuses. 

As to online elements of eduction, online takes a self-starter and a self disciplined individual that can follow the syllabus, manage their time, and require little or no supervision and is committed. If you don't meet these requirements then online is not for you. 

There are students that just want the degree and don't care about their GPA. I know one student that received his bachelors with all D's and wondered why they didn't get any job offers. Every employer I have interviewed in the last 4 years wants my transcript. Effort in school = effort in the workplace. 

I am just one of many posts here. Would I have taken a different path than DeVry and Keller. Right out of high school I would have done two years community college and the last two at a state university. But after 20 years in the workforce taking 6 years off work to earn a bachelors and two masters degrees would be impossible with family and work / travel requirements. So online gave me the ability to have the best of both worlds.

I had no life beyond work and school and a bit of family time. But, they all knew it would be a long term benefit. I thank DeVry and Keller for their committed staff and learning experience. I got everything back I put into the effort. The one thing I have learned is that it is not the degree in my hand but, the person behind the degree. 

People that bash anything schools, friends, their employer, etc, always seem the share their issues and how they were treated / cheated. Are they rationalizing their own failures to us here online or just taking out their frustrations with themselves. I will let them decide.

I hope I helped those trying to decide. Your results may vary!!

I have not attended any of the programs at Devry yet, however, I thinking if I should because of reading the negative comments of those who attended Devry who can't find a job. I know that I have researched to see if the Devry is accredited and all I've found is appropiate satisfactory accredited approval. If anyone want to find out for yourself look on the U.S Department of Education website and you will find schools that are accredited there. Schools like The University of Chicago, UoP, and Devry have the same accreditation no one can not argue with that. If after you are not convinced by checking on U.S department website then go to CHEA.org and you will see that Devry is a member of that association. My concerns come are students getting hired. No one can change the opinions of the hiring managers at varies company thoughts or biases they feel when it comes to Devry grad job seekers. If this is happening then this is called discrimation and should not be allowed. Universities are exspensive depending where the institution is located, for instance, Yale, Harvard, and etc. If after you have done your research stop putting the online schools down. Those who are seeking degrees can't commute to a university or maybe they have family responsibilities that won't allow them to commute back and forth. Whatever the issuses are don't judge people because of there decisions hope for them and pray for them that they find employment soon after graduation. I personaly have had a bad experience at a tradition school before. A teacher failed me in a humanities class because she was a lesbian and she felt like I dislike her because the life style she led. Another account at a tradition school I knew a young lady who had cancer and had to leave school for about two weeks to get treatment and when she returned to school with a doctor's statment showed just cause pertaining to her illness and was still being treated medical the professor failed her in english1102 and would give her a I, that young lady was a straight A student in all you her subjects and because she taken her education so seriously and always kept excellent grades she left and is now working at amtrak because she lost all her award money and was forced to leave school. Maybe this was too much info for some of you, but misfortune can happen to us at any school. I have had money hungry people in the financial office tried  keep my refund money that was awarded to me by the state and I had alot coming back. I can go on and on about what happen to me at a tradition schools and it's really like anyone cares I just wanted to give examples about what can happen at any school.

Well...this is an interesting thread.  I've been reading for over 30 minutes.  It seems DeVry/Keller is getting a bad rap on here.  I think I can offer those looking for real answers some info, without insulting the school or other posters.

My undergraduate is from U of I.  After working for many years, I wanted to advance faster so I went to Keller and earned an MBA.  Next year I will finish my 2nd Masters at Keller...in Project Management.  I am an independent consultant and I make close to $200k per year.  HOWEVER, I spent years gaining industry experience BEFORE going for my Masters.  I have been told by recruiters OFTEN that it's impressive that I have an MBA.  When I added that I was completing a degree in Project Management, my desirability went through the roof.  Honestly, I think it's because I have experience AND the degree that companies hire me.  Not JUST because of DeVry/Keller but it looks awful good on my resume.
Soooo, my advice....get an undergraduate degree from an inexpensive state school.  Get some experience under your belt THEN use Keller for a Masters.  I know 15 people who have gotten Masters degrees from Keller (but received their undergrad degrees from other colleges...from Carnegie Mellon to Southern Illinois in Carbondale, IL).   All but 4 have gotten promotions or better jobs once they put that they had a Masters on their resume.  Not one person has said that a prospective employer made any comments about their Masters being from DeVry/Keller.  

Because I have a certain specialty (Healthcare IT), sometimes people I know are applying for the same contract as I am.  All 4 times that this has happened, I've gotten the job.  I don't have more experience than these people but I do have a Masters (and another on the way) so I am DEFINITELY, 100% more marketable.  
Thanks Keller Graduate School! lol

And to those who say they spent money at Keller and don't have a job....well, unemployment is at, what, 10%?  A lot of people don't have jobs.  2 friends of mine have  degrees from University of Wisconsin in Madison.  One works in Social Services (case worker....long hours, low pay).  The other works in a factory.  So, not just DeVry grads have trouble finding work!  Keep your head up.  For those that feel they got a bum rap from DeVry, I hope things work out for you.  Student loans are a bear, and REALLY hurt when you're out of work.

And 1 final thing.  I emailed 5 or 6 recruiters that I consistently work with to find my contracts.  I asked if they had EVER seen jobs with "UoP" or "DeVry" don't apply.  None of them had ever seen this for those 2 schools or any other school for that matter.  I troll the job boards quite a bit myself and I have NEVER seen it....not doubting who ever posted it, but, well.....if you ever see it again, please post a link for all of us!!!!!

I am finishing my CIS degree from DeVry now. I have worked at Intel for over 14 years and they pay for my degree. They only pay for degrees that carry the ABET an AACSB accreditation, that would mean that they will not pay for you to attend Harvard for a business degree.  My CIS instructors are simply awesome. Can't speak about the financial department much but they always helped me out. I was miffed when they took the coffee machine away but that was just me. 
I wish I could attend ASU or another college for my CIS degree but don't want to spend 6+ years in school and having to take time off from work to attend classes that aren't offered in the evenings. 
My degree is transferable which means I can apply for a Masters when I'm done.

After reading all posts here, I am not stil sure if I should apply for MBA in Devry or try some other universities since I do not have any related experience in the field and am working 40+ a week. 
Does it make any differnece from my prospective recruiter where I got my degree from while I do not have experience in my major??The only thing which matters to me is the job opportunity after graduation.

Thank you for your comment, in advance

I really must say that all of the information contained in this posting is unverified and contains absolutely ZERO validity. It goes for both the DeVry haters and the DeVry students/alumni. There isn't a shred of REAL data in this posting and everything that is said in here should be taken as a grain of salt. Neither side presents anything other than opinion backed up with no facts which if we were writing a research paper would be a failing grade. It would be great if someone presented factual information. To say that no one hires DeVry grades is using absolute values which again is very poor when attempting to make a point. If anyone has real evidence, verifiable facts and data that would be better then this ugly banter.

"yes private schools are too expensive too but they are not FOR-PROFIT" 

I am confused how can any business, non-profit or for-profit not care about revenues? Any university or college system in the world cares about making money and ensuring its survivability. Do you really think that management at a for profit or non profit school make any different amounts of money? Do you think they do not care about their salaries? You must not understand the human condition. Non-profit is a mask to cover up the insane amounts of money that upper management makes. Do some research non-profit CEO's and (universities) upper management make A LARGE amount of money. There is no difference other than to evade taxes and line your pockets. Wake up my friend to reality.

DeVry is a great school, same text books as any other University. Any education is what is put into it. You can choose to apply and read and analyze the material or you can be spoon fed by a professor at a traditional school. Additionally, DeVry is BOTH online and traditional, I hope everyone realizes that it has both. 

Take 12 credit hours and DeVry is only $330 a credit that is the same as any other University.

At DeVry you can focus on one class and take it within a two month period. A a traditional school you waste your time going to class after class to listen to a professor brag about his superior intellect. Online schooling is far superior in the right hands.

I graduated In session A of the summer 09 semester (linine studies - Technical Management). Devry will be an experience that can only be determined by the individual. However i will give my opinion of the school. 

#1 YES the school is easy
#2 Yes some of the professors will pass you, where others will make an effort to ensure you get nothing higher than a C (but these terribad professors are rare)
#3 The student success coaches are brilliant and usually help you through.(those who only call will usually never get things done, I had to go the school and make my presence known.
#4 Its damn expensive
#5 Its still a business
#6 NEVER TRY TO GRADUATE ON SESSION A as they will put your grades and file on HOLD until Session B graduates( they dont take care of the over-achievers) 

Most these bad comments say scam and what not but Overall i havent had much difficulty in the school. I will however admit that the Finacial AID offices Suck. Esp an aid officer at the pomona campus named Jesse Megan. From beginning til end he hasnt contacted me once. He should be fired.

AS I'M ABOUT TO TRANSFER FROM A COMMUNITY COLLEGE SHE STRONGLY ADVISED ME NOT TO GO TO DEVRY BECAUSE THE DECISION SHE MAKES ARE STRICTLY FINANCIAL. SHE SAID THAT THE SCHOOL OR THE COUNCIL DO NOT CARE ABOUT GIVING A GOOD EDUCATION WHEN IT MEANS CUTTING DOWN ON PROFITS. THAT WAS ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS THE CUT DOWN TO AN EIGHT WEEEK PERIOD SEMESTERS.      

   WHY INSULT OR TRY TO POST AS DEVRY= SCAM HE IS JUST GIVING HIS OPINION, UNLESS YOU GUYS FEEL PERSONALITY ATTACK BY HIS POST. AND PLEASE STOP POSTING AS ARMY VETERANS OR SOLDIERS.

"1983 Devry Grad July 27, 2009 at 6:58 p.m.

For those students or potential students looking for testimonies. I graduated from Devry in 1983 with the BSEET degree. I have not been disappointed. My career has been very successful. Most of my career has been in design and sustaining complex electronic products. I am currently an Engineering Manager. I work for a company with revenue over 54 Billion and make six figures. During my career there has been some that look down their noses because I didn’t attend a standard College. Usually because Devry doesn’t have football team or social setting they can compare notes with during dinner. When hiring, it all comes down to your accomplishments and experiences. College give you basic tools needed to start a career. Devry gives you these tools within the electronics field. Devry will not open a door as large as a well known and respected college if you have no experience. But Devry will open the door to get the experience needed. Devry was a fit for me when I started College at 18 years old. There is some truth to the statement of one post, concerning some who think a degree on the wall from a well known school gives them entitlement. I have ran across many of these types. They have also learned the hard way, that business wants results not a degree. In my lifetime I have ran across a few other Devry graduates with executive management positions. Yes, I had to work harder for the respect, because of how some perceived Devry. However that was also one of the reasons I have had a successful career."


Tell me exactly who these executive level manager devry grads are?  I want their names and company titles! The way you write is not only grammatically incorrect but it sounds like you don't even know English above an 8th grade level. Is Devry University hiring people to write these silly responses.

Devry graduates in executive positions would scare any major shareholders away from the company!

I ran across this site and since I'm currently a student at DeVry I had to read. I find alot the posts are juvenile. Why there some much name calling. Ok, for most of you, you dislike the school and that's fine but the usage of language that has been displayed is uncalled for. Frankly, any school may have some issues with them and DeVry is no different, but for those of you who think that online schools are a waste of time, then that your opinion, and it can’t further from the truth; because it is a growing section of most universities. I've transferred from online school to DeVry and I must say that it has been a bit most challenging. 

Let's be honest for of us who want land a job; it's going to depend on the major that we select, the area that you reside in, and what you can bring to the employer. I've chosen a major in Health Information Management, and I know that DeVry would accepted from my future employees because I did my homework and I also realize that I have to take a national certification test in order to advance one day.

Also, for those of you that are able to attend traditional classes don't look down on those us who want what you want but chose to do more on our own. Neither way is easy but it takes more for online students because we don't get make-up time or extra credit, we don't receive time out school like you do. Like myself, most of us try to do class work at work, and I work as 9-1-1 operator, it's now or never. What you guys don't know is what you do in 3 months of classes we that in double time, and that's no exaggeration.

It's your right to dislike the school, but you played a role in your displacement. What I have found in this discussion it that alot you where majoring in programs that have taken a major hit due the economy. Look guys just relax

Devry's Texas CPA exam pass rate is only 27.5% that is lower than every state and community college! Pathetic

This statistic says it all Kasey.  Why would any CPA firm want to hire someone who is unlikely to pass the CPA exam?  Say whatever you want to justify spending so much money on an unaccredited degree but you are just blowing smoke!  If your business degree isn't accredited by the AACSB your options will be much more limited. 

You are going for a CIS degree Kasey?  At my school CIS is run through the business department so AACSB accreditation is going to hurt you.  Your investment will not give a good return Kasey!  My college costs $4,800 a year and sends dozens of it's business graduates to top accounting, insurance and consulting firms.  

I think it is funny how you just "HAD" to comment on my statement about grammar.  I don't have time to construct something perfect.  That is because my school isn't at my leisure like Devry!  I have to tutor lower division accounting majors and edit research bulletins! That is something I don't think they do at Devry!

Actually, I just finished an article in which I recommended to NOT attend an online accounting program if the goal is to pass the CPA exam. I looked at the pass rates of several schools. 27.5% is actually fairly decent, and better than some state schools! Is that for first-time examinees?

I agree completely, Randy.  I'm sure many of us have purchased some products online.  Find a product you are completely satisfied with that you have purchased online and go look up some reviews.  I've seen some products with a majority of horrible reviews and a handful of positives that performed great for me.  I can't say that I always take the time to write a positive review, but maybe I should, maybe we should.  

I've been enrolled with DeVry for 7 months.  I've completed 6 classes and I'm currently enrolled in two and these are all online courses.  I've interacted with a wide variety of people, those fluent in English and those still learning.  They have helped me, I have helped them and it works out great.  I put in a resonable amount of time each week, 10-15 hours per class, depending on the demands of the class.  I have made the Dean's List every semester thus far, 3.5-4.0 GPA.  I wouldn't get those kind of grades if I didn't put the effort forth to achieve them.  They weren't handed to me.  As with any other class in any other school, if there is something you do not understand, you best discover a method to understand whether it's through peers, the instructor, the internet or whatever works for you.

DeVry runs the show in a way that works well for me and if the structure seems as if it would work for you then I highly recommend it.  It's designed for older students that have jobs, families and other obligations.  

Good luck with your schooling, Randy!

I just wanted to through my 2 cents in. "For profit only" hello what college out there isn't in it for the money? I took 2 classes online through Penn State and they were seriously a joke at almost $500 a credit little crazy if u ask me. Devry because I am a vet is only half that. I start my first semester in about a month BS in electronics engineering technology. Everyone so far was great to me! Terrell my addmissions advisor calls me at least once ever day or two to keep me posted on everything and is extremely professional the same goes for the student aid office her name is Patty and she as well is great. They no I work full time so they call me after I get off of work I have not started class yet like I have mentioned but I am extremely excited the classes sound very challenging and I believe I am going to learn a great deal. If u are interested about going to Devry dont let some crap online that ppl are saying discourage u they probably didnt give it a 100% or they had a bad experience thats y they r slamming the school

Joe, I apologize.  That paragraph was directed towards the BAP Guy.  Having realized that, I see I have a bit more to say.  

BAP Guy,

As an accountant I would hope that your grammar isn't an issue.  If my accountant can't supply me with grammatically correct documentation he/she won't be my accountant for long unless they're just that damn slick with numbers.  From your phallic superiority comment I would hope this was the case.  Whether or not some other fellas degree is more respected than mine will never matter to me.  What really matters is the skills and the ablity to sell them and prove that you have them.  If you really do have them then that should never be a problem.  I've thought for a long time that paying for a piece of paper that tells other people I know what I know is a bad idea.  Many fools graduate with a college degree, many fools hold jobs they have no place holding, I don't intend to be one of them.  The validity of any degree should be questioned in my opinion.  I'm doing it because society deems that I must if I want to have something to fall back on.  Education doesn't begin with school and it doesn't end with school.  It starts from the moment you are born and stops the day you die, unless you choose otherwise.  

"A man's worth isn't calculated in terms of the number of degrees they have or where they got them.  A man's worth is forged through his own experiences, decisions, willpower and determination."(Collins, Kasey) 

Quoting oneself may not add validity to ones statement, but it may add comic relief. ha

I find that negative feedback is much easier to come by than positive feedback.  Perhaps those that harbor negative feelings against something have nowhere else to unleash them, or perhaps sharing the issues with their peers is not enough.  People that have positive experiences may not go looking to find people to share their positive experiences with.  

While feedback is useful, is shouldn't be a deciding factor.  I use it to get a general feel about a product or service and I take information from those people to google and continue my research.  I look for well written articles with sources listed posted on legitimate and trustworthy web sites.

Joe, I find grammatically correct writings easier to process and follow.  A person that doesn't care about grammar and structure probably wouldn't care one way or another.  In the professional world, grammar should be a big deal.  I think it would be pretty sad if our "professionals" weren't using correct grammar, don't you?  

I don't feel the need to bull crap anybody by making up some fantastical story. I checked a few of the available listings with the Better Business Bureau and I saw 4 A+'s and a B-.  Obviously, different people are going to run different locations "differently," some better than others.  This happens at McDonald's.  If the BBB is throwing out misinformation and DeVry continues to hold legitimate accreditation while they "scam" people we have some issues that are far more serious than the actual "scam" itself, I don't personally believe in a "DeVry scam".  

If you have any questions or concerns try to seek out somebody that has graduated from DeVry and is actually happy and successful.  Seek people that are like how you would like to be.  That is one method of bettering yourself and moving forward.  It would not make sense to model yourself after or base a decision off of somebody that is unhappy and unsuccessful unless that is how you would like to be.  Good luck to those of you attending DeVry, and to those of you who are thinking about attending.  Online courses fit in my schedule and this method of learning works great for me, it may not be the best choice for everybody.

I've learned a lot from DeVry so far and I intend on making the most of this investment.  I'm pursuing a CIS(Computer Information Systems)degree.  I haven't had any troubles with DeVry that I wouldn't have had anywhere else.  Crap happens, you either get over it or you don't.  The bottom line: "Take care of crap before it takes care of you."

Whoever said they have a degree from Devry and work for a big 4 accounting firm is a liar.  Big 4 firms are picky at accredited schools! They want someone who has above a 3.5 gpa, BAP or accounting society membership, they need to be under the age of 26. 

Your work week during tax season will be over 80 hours a week.  It isn't at your leisure like online classes.  I will have some big 4 recruiters here at my AACSB accredited state school in the fall so I will ask them what they think of Devry....

Seriously though Devry, UOP, ITT tech are ripoffs.  So far I have spent 3 years of my life getting up early going to accounting society meetings and doing taxes for low income individuals.  My school is fully accredited by the AACSB and your degree will always be less respected than mine.  I have met many big 4 alumni through Beta Alpha Psi an accounting honor society and not one has been a graduate of any online school!

Don't critique my grammar instead of my argument.  That just shows you have lost...

Hi everyone. I decided to do a search on DeVry for employment result hits and found this site. I have read this whole page. It has very interesting stuff. I tend to skip over the one person keeps repeating himself because he sounds pissed at life. I am about to graduate DeVry and have only attended two on site classes and the rest of them online. Some of the classes were so messed up I actually had to get a tutor to get me through them. Some were a breeze. Some made sense and some made little sense. Either way, this is only my second college I have ever attended. My attitude at this point is simply to make the best of it. I have always felt that all colleges were money hungry...It is their job I guess. The staff has many issues as well. I have financial advisements counselors that never call or email back until I raise a lot of Hell on the phone as well. Over all, the service level is very sub par and the learning level is great in some areas and probably will lack much in others when I finally graduate. At the end of the day, it is about the individual. I really think that all colleges have these problems. To me it is all about the big picture because DeVry has definitely not made anything easy for me…It has been a LOT of work. If there are companies out there that don't hire DeVry grads then so be it, I am sure there are more that will. I am sure if I looked I could find negative posts for many of the other colleges as well. At the end of the day, you have to do what it takes and stop complaining about how it all sucks…it will get you no where in life…really. I will say this, if you plan on taking the Game Simulation Programming curriculum, then start reading ALL you can about C++ and learning 3D math....it is off the chain hard especially online. I graduate in 3 months and this is a very unbiased DeVry student who will graduate from DeVry and hope the world understands that some of us did apply ourselves and learn. To the bashers, good luck and to the DeVry students good luck! ;)

FYI- someone posted a link to a job ad that supposedly stated "DeVry grads need not apply"- the job posting is no longer up. However if you go the site you will see that Accounting Principals is a temp agency. Temp agencies are generally a waste of time (and I have worked for more than one). They just need to get a body in a seat so they can get their commission. I don't know if it is actually illegal to put "DeVry grads don't apply" in a job listing- is it illegal to put "only Spanish-speaking applicants need apply"? Because there sure is a lot of that here in FL.

I'll try to keep it short and simple.

You have to be really punctual with your paperwork if you want Devry to work, otherwise things just get delayed - especially financial aid. Yes, the complaints are true - Devry is extremely expensive. I was approved for complete financial aid and both subsidized and unsubsidized federal loans. Devry charges around 80-90% extra compared to your local college. Financial aid will most definitely not be able to cover it. The pro's are that the online customer service is very good. Financial aid is helpful and I noticed they would only reply back if I had any questions or I completed paperwork - they really don't waste any time.

So if you can afford and want the ease of doing college at home, Devry is a good choice. However, keep in mind that it is much more better to attend college in person - for the sake of experience. Also, I don't know if people will choose Devry first compared to other schools, so watch out for that too.

My experience with Devry has been 3/5. Eventually, I decided to quit before going with the semester.

Hopefully this post helps someone out.

I went to DeVry for a semester. It was good to get a real book that was current. The class was brick and mortar and my degree will be from DeVry as a traditional and not online. I guess if you take more classes online your degree will state that it was ONLINE. 

I am going to probably shell out the $30,000 to finish up my degree just so I can have it and learn some more. It is about the same as a traditional school here: University of Houston. But I don't have the time to drive downtown and sit in traffic to take a 3 hour class. 

I don't get why people claim DeVry is a scam or that it takes your money. They are just like all the other universities out there. They have a board that is interested in making money not big surprise. 

It is snobbery to claim that DeVry grads are less competent as "traditional" graduates. I am going to their campus and doing the same thing as any other "traditional" campus graduate. SOME classes will be online. I would much rather read books and write papers then sit through 4 hours of professor X dribble.

If you have the money go to DeVry campus it is traditional and I think it is worth it. I cannot speak as to the acceptance in the "real" world but I do have 10 years of industry experience so that combination with some IT certs will be more than enough to land a job.

It's quite amazing reading through these posts. Especially the fiasco of "Devry=SCAM!" and his schizophrenia outbursts. Anyway, I just wanted to give my two cents about attending DeVry. I'm currently a senior and will be graduating after the fall trimester, and I have had a wonderful experience here. To those who think they do not hire DeVry grads, you are grossly misinformed. I only have my Associates in CIS and am currently working as a Web Developer at a world-wide medical research company that is in the forefront on regenerative medicine. I am currently handling the system design and managing mending the corporate web site with the HUNDREDS of satellite/product sites. I'm 21 years old, and was hired while I was attending DeVry (North Brunswick campus), and am currently being reimbursed for my tuition by the company which I work for. Also, I'm earning a comfortable living, to the point where I am able to afford my own place and support for my fiancee while she pursues her veterinary degree, without having to worry about finances. Many of my class mates have landed great internships and jobs, but they have worked HARD towards these degrees, just like I am. 

To those considering attending DeVry (CIS, specifically): If you are more interested in the theoretical aspect of computers/tech, I'd suggest going into the field of Computer SCIENCE. DeVry offers degrees in Computer INFORMATION SYSTEMS (amongst other things in Info. Systems). You want a more practical education in the field of IT? I suggest going to DeVry, or any school that offers information systems.

As for these haters, I am sorry you did not have a good experience with DeVry, and I am a true believer in that what you get out of life (or school) is what you put into it.

I was thinking about attending Devry, but after reading all these posts makes me think they are just after the money.  I mean, this guy gets scammed by the school and all anyone can do is mock him.  Not one ounce of empathy for someone who was lied to and mislead makes me think it is just a school full of cynics who are looking for their next victim.  If all of you really are students, and not employees, you shouldn't come off so incredulous and condescending.

Hello all,

I found this thread to be quite amusing. I briefly attended the DeVry campus in Orlando, FL in 2002. It is no cakewalk! I was taking 3 gen-ed classes, and we had a LOT of work to do! I was not mature enough to handle the responsibility, so I dropped out. I was 23 years old at the time. We had group projects, and individual assignments. We had to swipe our ID cards in a time clock before and after class, so our attendance would be counted. I had no problems with the financial aid department. The only problem I had was with my admissions advisor. I wanted to change my major and he refused to let me. I was in CIS and wanted to change to business. He said I was "not allowed" to change majors. I spoke with another advisor who said "Sure, no problem. I will handle that for you." I don't understand why the school does not have advisors for enrolled students, who are separate from the sales reps (I mean, admissions reps). Community colleges do. Anyway, I would recommend the school and I think it was worth the price.

I must say that I have found this discussion thread to be very interesting. I have zero college credits, but I am considering an online business degree to push me towards six digit territory (I already do quite well, thank you). I am a veteran, and was an aircraft mechanic by trade, but worked myself into field management of a large defense services company by learning the business, taking jobs nobody wanted, forcing myself to learn things that didn't interest me and grabbing every learning opportunity I could get over the years. I have hiring and performance review responsibilities where I work and I will tell you that education is just a small part of what makes you employable. It's about being well rounded and having experience related to the job you are seeking. You can have all the degrees in the world, but if you don't have applicable skills and experience, you are nowhere. If you went to college right out of high school or got a degree to change careers, be realistic and expect to start at or near the bottom. Experience is key, so do what you must to get it. Use your education as a door opener, not a crutch. A successful career is like a three legged stool and education is just one leg. The government calls these KSA's - Knowledge, Skills and Abilities. Knowledge is great, but application of it is essential. I marvel at how many college grads are just useless because they think a degree is a ticket to a paycheck. It's not!

Doh! Once again, I am sorry everyone! I forgot to take my Thorazine and regressed into a momentary fit of paranoid schizophrenia. I didn't hurt myself too bad this time. The doctors say I will be able to leave the institution someday when I am able to control my violent, ant-social urges... but until then, I have to keep working for my improvement. Once again, anytime I have an outburst, I apologize in advance. Sometimes i hear voices, and they tell me to do things... I hope I get better.

Colleges and Universities provide students with the means to learn. Learning is something that each individual must take an active role in. A student can attend the best college and learn nothing while another student can go to a no name college,study effectively, and have a better learning experience. There are several millionaires that never went to college and know more about business than most college grads. As a military recruiter I have seen college grads perform poorly on the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery Test (ASVAB) and GED holders score a 90 on the same test. It does not matter where you went to college but how well you learn. The main thing to look for is the accreditation. Is it regional? Is it national? Regional is better.

What happened to my apology posts? In them I told everyone how sorry I was for trying to mislead them and for my behavior on this forum. I am in fact a part-time telemarketer who makes very little money and has very little job satisfaction and come here to vent because I really just hate my life.

The fact is I never went to DeVry. I'm sure it's really a great school. Good luck to all who attend! And once again, if I get a little crazy and out of hand, it's only because I forgot to take my medication and/or had a particularly bad day at work.

And to whoever keeps deleting my posts, why? Are you censoring a deeply felt apology for the sake of causing more grief? Let us all be friends now, quick, while my meds hold out...

I just applied to DeVry, almost positive I'll get accepted (barring death, or freak accident).

I've read a majority of comments on here, and I'll just add that everyone who didn't get a job needs to shut the f*ck up.

Quite honestly, the school gave you an education. If you are unsatisfied with your education, open up Google, and fill in the f*ckin gaps. If people who have never gone to college can get jobs, and you, who have obtained a degree, cannot, then there is clearly something wrong with you.

Maybe you should try harder instead of blaming other people.

Personally, I just want the f*ckin piece of paper to put on my portfolio. It's 2.8 years, not a f*cking life time. Get the f*ck over it, grow the f*ck up, and get the f*ck out.


The only reason DeVry may be seen as sub par to some corporations is because failures feel that just because they have a degree, and graduated best of their class, makes them "qualified". No, it does not, in fact, it makes you cocky.

And just a hilarious note, a lot of the people who have been bashing on the school have "sub par" English. Clearly you didn't even pay attention in High School, so you had no business in the first place going to College.

So Devry Philly, you opened your own business after Devry.  So why did you bother to go to school to start your own business?  You could have used the tens of thousands you spent on tuition as start-up capital that every new business needs.  If you went to Devry to gain the job skills needed in your business, you seriously wasted your money.  If you went to Devry to gain recognition or some sort of pedigree for your business, you SERIOUSLY wasted your money.  When most people say they are self-employed, that means they are unemployed.  I hope your little website is getting enough hits to hire someone to watch it.  You could have done web design without a degree from Devry.

Everyone i know who attended Devry quit because it was "too hard". They then discredit the school's reputation and its ability to educate those who are disciplined and determined enough to succeed. If you are not willing to put forth the effort that it takes to achieve the degree that you desire then it will not matter which school you attend. I really hope that anyone who is considering attending this school doesn't use this forum as the primary basis for making their decision.

I am attending Devry. I think they are a great school I did do some classes online and I am not going to lie I was pretty irritated that I could not get any help to fix a problem with the I lab for two of my classes and because of that I failed those two classes. Simply lives go on Thats the only problem I have ever had. I know the school must obviously be a good school because I have friends who work at microsoft who attended Devry. Also I know that microsoft enjoy bringing aboard those who attended Devry. Also quick reminder there are stats that show places are more than likely to hire people who attended technical schools and community colleges rather than those who attended upscale universities. Also businesses are hiring those with associate degrees rather than those who have a bachelors degree. Reason is why pay someone more for taking a class that was broke up into three different classes just so they could get enough credits receive a bachelors degree. Either way we are going to hear every little bad thing that has happened at Devry simply because it's better to talk about the negative than the positive. Sorry to those of you if you did not have a good experience, and I'm for those that did. Either way it's a education that will help you find a better job.

And personally to Devry=scam, I notice you have a lot of free time on your hands that you could be using more beneficially. When I graduate from Devry and open my business, I will work with you on being employed with my company. Every company needs some weirdo who will sit and watch hits of my business attributes all day on the web. I know where to find you so, then and only then will I be back.

What is so funny in these posts is the vagueness of them! Like "I was told Devry had accreditation then when I left they said they didn't" Who are these "theys" being discussed? Other people saying cases have been won against Devry for one reason or another yet, you post no link to a reputable site where it can be researched by any reader of the post! Never mentioning what format they were taking classes in and no one EVER seems to mention which campus they go to so, we never get it clear whether it’s the school or the idiots WORKING at the school in your location! I think people had a negative opinion of Devry from a long time ago when it was one of those fist "technical schools". Ignorance, misleading statements, and bitter students who didn't do their job have made it so the school is not able to shine through. 

Today makes it one complete year that I have attended Devry's Philadelphia-Center City campus in the accelerated mixed format(see how I did that? making it clear where I am ..being specific...take notes..I'll wait). First and foremost, these classes have been far from "easy". For example, my advanced English composition class required one essay paper per week! Now you tell me with work, family life, and other organizational involvement that it is easy to sit and write a structured, conclusive, coherent paper every week! There are people who cannot hack the structuring of the courses also. Some people need the traditional 15 week semesters because the 8 week sessions are too fast paced for them. I have learned so much I this one year in my classes that, it makes me wonder if these posters even gave an effort to learn at all. Forget the academics, being at Devry I have learned more about me as a person too, not to mention the networking ability I have gained being around other likeminded, goal oriented, adults. That is another thing I wonder about these posters; are these posters kids? Fresh out of high school? Because, I see a lot of posts saying "they didn't tell me about...." "No one explained the educard account" and, ADULTS who sign paperwork usually READ said paperwork first! When I applied for admission, tested in, and applied for financial aid I was told about the educard by the rep and, since I am a grown up, I READ the disclosure before I signed my name to it. Everything that has gone on with my academics from classes, to financial aid, to degree completion requirements has been told to me and reiterated by tangible literature that I read myself. I keep emphasizing ME, MY, MYSELF, because it seems that most of these posters expected to be hand held through the process (which firms my thought that they are fresh out of high school) and want to take no accountability for their lack of effort, desire, and motivation in their courses at Devry.

Not only am I pleased with Devry's academics. I am pleased with the staff. Contrary to previous posts, Devry's financial aid office is NOT in Thailand. Some of them do have accents but, I have talked to persons who are clearly American on the line as well. Financial aid can be a tricky encounter at ANY school, especially with the new rules regarding grants, loans, disbursement schedules and such (or did you not know that either?).Again, after 1 full year, I have YET to experience a problem with my financial aid not being given, being overcharged, tuition not being covered or any of the other "problems" mentioned throughout this post. I think that is partially attributed to the efficiency of the staff at the Philadelphia and Fort Washington campuses here in PA. MY thoroughness and efficiency on my part attributes to the rest. If you are not filling out paperwork by deadlines, tuning in incomplete documents, and not establishing a working repor with the reps AT your location that you SEE every time you're there then, OF COURSE you are going to run into all sorts of problems.

I am just plain old tired of hearing bitter ex students of Devry coming to these types of websites and discouraging prospective students based on invalid half truths and born through the students own lack of desire and involvement. I was once that prospective student. When I started researching Devry I came across these types if sites. I read the posts and thought they weren't accredited, I wouldn't get a job, I would owe tons of money, I would sign up spend money to then be sued by Devry...all those types of things but I did MY OWN RESEARCH to come to make what is one of the BEST decision I have made as an adult. PLEASE for anyone who, like me, came across this site for information about Devry, read my post, take it all in, do research of your own, visit a few times before signing up. Whatever you have to do to make an INFORMED choice because , these posts are not information, they are statements written by the bitter, lazy, and immature, who probably faced the hard decision to either "put up or shut up" (go to school or get a job..Go to school or do jail etc,)

*** Check out Devry's site, jot down some questions, give your location a call, and don't be afraid to speak up and ask the questions you have***

*** Devry IS financial aid efficient. Check the official due dates and document requirements BEFORE hand***

The bottom line to my post is as a student; your education is your responsibility. Anyone who walks into an office, allows themselves to be steam rolled, signs papers without reading them, doesn't ask questions about money they are putting out and, doesn't put forth an effort academically will be bitter. You will be bitter but, take some responsibility and accountability in sharing with us the role you played when you post to "let people know" about not just Devry but ANYTHING!

Well it’s too bad that Devry=SCAM! had some many problems at DeVry. It can be very difficult to land a job in the game industry. However, other degrees at DeVry are typically worthwhile. I am aware of many classmates who landed good paying positions with the CET, EET, CIS, NCM and BA degree programs. 

It is unfortunate to hear that the Devry=SCAM! had problems landing a job in the game industry after graduating from DeVry with great GPA too. I was quite serious about going to DeVry to obtain a degree in Game and Simulation Programming. After talking to some people I was told to wait a few years for the Game and Simulation Programming degree to “mature.” 

I couldn't wait for the GSP degree to “mature” so I decided to attend DigiPen (currently a Senior), which is a specialized college for simulation programming and games. I have looked over the curriculum at DeVry for the GSP program and noticed that there are some gaps in the course sequence. For instance, there needs to be classes pertaining to algorithm analysis, more linear algebra and calculus…more physics too.  I am not sure if DeVry has courses relating related to the programming of scripting languages, multithreading, and component based architectures with messaging systems…oh and low level programming. Lastly, there should be more emphasis on the graphics pipeline and an introduction to programming shaders using HLSL and/or GLSL. 

My only advice is if you’re a GSP student make sure to do a lot of work outside the classroom to learn most of the above content…it will definitely increase your chances of landing a job.  Even regular students at a traditional university learn outside the scope of their degree requirements to get a job in the game industry. After all there have been video game programmers for years…without specialized game design degrees. 

Game simulation programming is by far not an easy route to go…any academic advisor who says it is lying.

They may or may not be employees.  Who knows?  What we do know is Devry is a poor excuse of a school. 

Devry settled a case with the following accusations: 

*failed to provide adequate, and in many cases, any placement services for its students and graduates; 
*failed to provided competent, experienced and/or qualified faculty for its program of instruction; 
*failed to provide instruction in current technologies and computer languages such as Java script; 
*failed to maintain an administration competent to operate the constituent schools, supervise faculty, or maintain such limited standards as defendants purported to maintain in manuals and other writings; 
*failed to provide adequate laboratory and computer equipment such that students were unable to acquire relevant skills for gainful employment in the field for which they were training.

For me, this isn't even about your opinion of Devry. I stumbled here to read reviews of DeVry and was completely blown away by your undying persistence at being, quite possibly, the biggest imbecile I have ever encountered on the internet.

If you're such a winner and everything is fine, why do you spend so much of your life on this relatively insignificant forum being hostile, negative, insulting, and vicious to people with a different opinion than you? You may be a "winner" now with a "great" job, but you won't last long if the content of your bizarrely obsessive posting is indicative of your overall attitude in real life. 

The above replier is right: if you were a real "winner" and mature professional, you would have stated your opinion and moved on. Instead you come off as an obnoxious little toddler who has absolutely no social skills or self-control over your emotions whatsoever... not what most employers are looking for.

But perhaps the most telling refutation of your entire premise (that employers will not hire DeVry grads) is that by your own admission you actually got the interview! If, as you claim, employers will not hire DeVry grads, then why would they have wasted their time interviewing you? Did they not see on your resume that you graduated from DeVry? 

So it must have been something YOU said or did in your interview that convinced them you were not right for the job... not your degree or where you earned it. And if your completely un-eloquent, emotionally biased, factually unfounded, socially immature, and pathetically misspelled and grammatically inaccurate posts are any indication whatsoever about you as a person, I think the reason why you weren't hired the first time is quite obvious to everyone here who have or ever will read your sad commentary.

I would wish you luck, but I must admit my own emotional bias to your failing in life. Please do, troll.

According to your logic I would have to wait a couple decades before I would have a resume ready to get the job with Devry as my final.  No thanks pal, I plan on retiring by then.  My portfolio included program projects I did at Devry which earned A+s.  The interviewers were not impressed when they loaded them up.  I never made it past round one.

When I sat down for my classes at University Park, I learned just how deficient my degree from Devry had been.  They missed among the most basic competencies, as well as watering down the more advanced concepts.  What I know was an A at Devry is a D to an F at USC.  There just isn't  enough time for Devry to offer upper level courses... they have no business shortening the courses by a factor of two.  It would work fine for an AS as that is what Devry is, a glorified technicial college.    

I prepped and submitted my new portfolio and was hired at 7 Studios before I walked Alumni Park.  From there, I moved to QuickSilver and you can find my work in the recent DMCTI Logistics Trainer used by the US Army.  I have never had so much fun programming and it serves among the most important purposes for this nation.    

You can call me a failure all you want... I did fail in life when my top degree was Devry.  That much is true.  They did not teach me the skills I needed to create a killer portfolio needed to land the job, much less give me the name recognition employers want from young hires. As you say: I was duped, I was a tool, I sucked, I was a dumbass.  You notice that is all past tense.  I am a winner and it is b/c I turned my life around after Devry destroyed it.  I sacrificed to earn a real degree and it payed off.  Devry just runs you through watered down courses while they water down your wallet.  In the end you are left with mounds of debt and a worthless piece of paper.                

At the end of the day, I did get the job... no thanks to Devry.  GO TROJANS!

You said it yourself. You were relying on a piece of paper to do all the work for you to get a dream job. Wow, am I the only one who sees the massive amounts of failure behind that ridiculous logic? Like I said, employers won't discriminate based on schools over actual experience and knowledge. 

Gaming companies demand experience and knowledge. Is it Devry's fault that you had a crappy resume? If you actually told them "Here's what I can do." and showed them something worthwhile, would we be having this conversation? No. The video game industry is a 6 billion dollar industry. You think they're going to hire someone based on a piece of paper? Hah. Don't make me laugh. And seriously, I don't think you ever did go to that traditional school. I think you're trying to BS us to make us feel like you've done something right to cover up for your massive failure. I'm not buying it. 

So, if anyone is to blame, it's your stupidity of relying on a piece of paper to land you a dream career. Ask ANY employer and see what they have to say for something as high end as gaming. They're going to want to see what you're capable of. Instead of showing them a piece of paper, show them what YOU can do. That's where YOU failed.

What truth? The statistics that actually show the employment percentage? The companies that actually do hire Devry grads? Or your one-sided, biased arguments? Here's the truth of the matter. You were a tool that thought you'd get a dream job in something like gaming because of a sheet of paper and without a showcase of your actual capability. That is the truth, and it is a very tragic one.

Here's what you SHOULD have done. With the knowledge you gained both at Devry and other experience, PROVE yourself as more than just a graduate. That's where you fail. A degree isn't going to get you anywhere without experience. It will certainly help out in getting you an entry level or internship, but a dream job? Fat chance.

You can go right on ahead and think of me whatever. I don't work for Devry. You can complain all you want to, but at the end of the day, you're the tool that didn't get the job. You're the guy that's taking his frustration out by badmouthing someone for your own damn failure. A bunch of people get great jobs after Devry. You didn't. You're the one that sucks.

I'll stop posting after this, because I know it kills you that you sucked it up in life and it's worse that all of us are calling your dumbass out on it.

Do employers care about your school?  If that is most of your resume then it is everything.  I worked at Cisco, had an AA from Tech, and a degree from Devry.  Cisco got me the interview... Devry didn't do jack.  The employers like Cisco, it is a respected name, they laugh at Devry.  Maybe if I had 20 years at Cisco, Devry wouldn't matter as much, but I was making a genre shift with a piece of paper that means nothing and a job that doesn't deal in gaming software.  For Devry to offer a Simulation and Game Programming degree is a scam... they know no one will get a job with it. 

So don't blame me for YOUR failure for assuming my situation.  Devry has no business marketing that degree to kids who want to develop games and that is exactly what they do.  They aren't targeting 50 year olds with a ton of experience to develop them, they are getting 20 somethings like I was to get ripped off by the SCAM that is Devry.  

I went to Devry because they offered me a specialized degree and promised the world b/c it was so special.  I checked around and no one had a degree with this focus. I  fell for the hype like the stupid chump kid I was and after 5 years closing that wasted chapter in my life, I sit here to warn others to avoid my mistakes.  I went to USC by taking evening/day courses and sacrifice sacrifice sacrifice ... OK?           

Go back to your cubicle and scam someone else.  People reading this know the truth.

Actually, every one of your points have been refuted. 

Do employers really care about how reputable your school is? No, not really. Are they going to look at your resume and say "Man, he went to Devry, he sucks." No. Believe it or not, most people aren't that narrow-minded and immature like you. That's not even mentioning that Devry actually has big name corporations that regularly hire graduates from them. What do you have to counter their impressive statistics and documented history with corporations? Nothing but bias. Nice try, but no cigar. 

And here's something else you neglected to mention.. You actually got called in for an interview. Most people don't even get that far because they either don't have the experience and/or education. So, guess what? Your Devry degree landed you that interview. How many people can you say didn't even get that far? Quite a bit. When you're at that part, it's really up to YOU to impress the employers, not your school or even your resume. When you're face to face with an interviewer, if you actually know what the hell you're talking about and do so in a mature way, the name of your school won't mean anything.

So, don't blame your school for YOUR failure to land a job. It's preposterous that they'd belittle you over something so trite as the name of your school if you actually went in there with experience and interviewed well. Quite honestly, I think you're making it up and it's only hurting what little of an argument you have. It's obvious you don't know crap about how to get a job if all you were relying on was your degree and GPA. Again, refuted. 

Also, explain to me how a person who works 9-5, has a family to take care of, and plenty of other things on their plate can possibly go to a traditional college where time is extremely limited. I've been to a traditional college and you'd be LUCKY if they offered online courses, evening courses or weekend courses that actually adhere to your busy schedule.

Now, if you're a full time student with nothing to do but study, then BY ALL MEANS, go to a traditional school. You'll have more of a social life, experience new things, meet new people and learn things about yourself. Unfortunately, not everyone has that luxury, so Devry is an excellent way for them to get a good education, a degree and actually try to do something worthwhile with their lives. By making immature comments like you've been doing, you're basically making fun of people who are doing their best to get an eduction So, please. Stop trolling and shut the hell up already. And don't even bother bringing up crap like "go to a traditional university" because that point has been touched upon many times over already.

It's amusing how you resort to petty mud slinging like saying we all work for them because you're being called out on your own ignorance, ineptness and poor attitude.

Not to refute your argument, I agree, DeVry is very insufficient.  If I had to do it all over again I may have chosen a state school, however, DeVry was more suitable for my needs because I worked during the day.  I attended classes on campus at night, which is much better than online and of course employers think that since you've attended DeVry then you must have an online degree.  In my case I do not have an online degree.

During my interview with the Accounting Firm, my degree was questioned and I provided great answers or the right answers shall I say.  Sure, I'm tired of being shun down upon because of my DeVry degree, but in no way is my DeVry degree indicative of my knowledge.  Having said that, I was able to impress employers with my ability to articulate and talk about technical accounting knowledge.

I will not attend Keller, though.  I am getting my masters from a State school so that I will not have to deal with the painstaking questions regarding my degree.  To anyone that is in question about attending DeVry, please do yourself a favor and attend a state university if you can.  Sure, there are people out there who have graduated from DeVry and are doing well in their perspective field of study.  However, I know a lot of graduates who are struggling to find jobs because of their DeVry degree.

I am fortunate because I network network network and do more networking.  Will I recommend DeVry to anyone, HELL NO!  If you are attending, Good Luck and network your ass off because DeVry will not have good employers at their career fairs.  I've never attended a DeVry career fair, you don't need a degree for the employers that attends the career fairs... ie Banks... Wow...  Who wants a degree to become a bank teller and then have to provide for yourself with $50,000-$70,000 worth of student loan debt?

DeVry increased its revenue abolishing the traditional 15 week courses, decreasing it to 8 week courses so that they can get more semesters within the year without having an increase in expenses.  This method, however, has decreased the quality of its education.  Over time this method will come back to bite Top Level Management and DeVry in the ass.  There are and will be more and more employers complaining about the lack of knowledge that DeVry students have because of the accelerated courses.  

DO NOT ATTEND DEVRY, IF SO, YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE TO GET YOUR GRADUATE DEGREE FROM A STATE SCHOOL SO THAT YOU WILL BE COMPETETIVE IN THE MARKET. 

Take it from someone who attends and about to graduate with an excellent job lined up afterwards.  I've not had too many problems with DeVry, having said that my statement is not biased.  This is as fair as I can be to those of you that are thinking about attending.

Honestly dude, no one has refuted my points except by calling me a soar loser.  That doesn't qualify... ever.  When you make ridiculous comments like 'Devry is harder than an SEC school' no one takes you seriously.  

The truth is, employers scoff at Devry grads.  They will arbitrarily shun you due to your school.  There is nothing left for them to discriminate against since it is illegal to do so against race, religion, gender, s*xual orientation.  Employers WILL often question you about your school choices, especially if they are unfamiliar with it like those with Devry.  It happened to me in every interview.  I never went back for the same job position, I went to the same company and got a better job with my degree from Southern Cal. and did so because I networked with the gal who told me to come back after I implemented my short term goals.  

Since I did get the job, I still come here to inform others how insufficient Devry is.  I have been on both sides of the fence and the pastures are far greener here than the arid wasteland that is Devry job opportunities.  I will continue to voice my disdain until this SCAM is shut down.  It is my civic obligation.  I not only 'cut it' at Devry, I graduated with a 4.0... please spare me the retorts.  No one would leave Devry b/c it is too hard to go to a Tier 1 National unless they thought Devry was a joke... this was my case.  Your hammer has not only missed the nail, you just smashed your toe.          

You calling me a runt?  Now that is a laugh Mr. Devry enrollment advisor.  Why don't you crawl back to your cubicle and leave your lies for your SPAM autodial victims.

Honestly, dude. You gotta stop it. Every one of your points have been refuted and now you're just left with your bias against it. When you make immmature comments like "they peed on my resume" you know we can't take your opinion seriously. Personally attacking people here only hurts the integrity of your argument, which is saying something, since you've proven yourself inept time and time again in this discussion.

The truth is this : Employers won't arbitrarily shun your resume because of the pedigree of your school. They didn't hire you because of your lack of knowledge, experience and maturity. Employers also won't have you second guessing your decision about school either. Are we to believe that you went back to the same job position that you got turned down from but with a degree from a different job and then somehow that deterred their opinion about hiring you or not? Please. You're full of it. 

I doubt you even got the job. If you really did get the job, you wouldn't waste your time bitching about a decision you made. A simple "Devry just didn't do it for me, but a traditional school did" would have sufficed. But, instead, you continue to voice your disdain, as if you're trying to convince yourself. Typical troll, really. No, I bet you couldn't cut it in Devry because of their accelerated courses and decided to go to a typical traditional university where they throw in loads of completely useless classes that anyone with a pulse can pass. Bet I hit it on the nail, huh?

You're not proving anything, runt. Stop trying to blame your failures on everyone else and grow up. Otherwise, shut your mouth.

So let me get this straight, everyone you have met who hates Devry are inarticulate, have no personality, and have no presence?  Is that right?  You must have met a pet-rock.  If you are at Devry, every degree is a waste of money except the handful of ABET-TAC degrees they offer in IT on-ground.  

You should have stayed at your big Southeastern Conference school where their Accounting degrees are AACSB accredited.  I take it you flunked out of the program and lost your athletic scholarship because you couldn't keep your grades up.  Oh yes, Devry is the perfect fit for you.  If you think the difficulty of Devry is equal to an SEC school you must be a Devry employee to make such a ridiculous statement.  

If you can to a state school then there is absolutely no reason to go to Devry:  In-state tuition is cheaper, the degrees have better and more numerous professional accreditations, better faculty, the name-recognition alone is worth it.  The only reason I went was because they offered a specialized degree that the state schools were not offering in Game and Simulation Programming.  The Devry scam artists conned me into thinking I would have a leg-up, the only leg-up I recieved was when HR raised their leg to pee on my resume before it hit the trash.  My make-up degree from USC landed me the job, not Devry.  I was asked several times in interviews why I even bothered with Devry if I could cut it at Southern Cal. which verified that employers do not respect a Devry degree.  The only people from Devry who get jobs in the field, already have jobs in the field.  DO NOT go to this school if you are changing careers, worst mistake you will ever make!

Chase, I think that you hit it right on the nail.  Everyone has a different experience going to DeVry, some good some bad.  You can't avoid it, as you said "it's inevitable".  The people that I have met personally that hates DeVry, I wouldn't hire them myself.  Not articulate, no interpersonal skills and no presence.  I agree, if you are not majoring in a skilled profession, then DeVry is not for you.  Truthfully, at any school you choose, if it is not a skilled major (ie Accounting, Engineering, Architecture, Computers, Medicine) then you are wasting time and money.

It is the best unbiased opinion that I can give.  I am a graduating Accounting major and yes some classes are a breeze and some you will be challenged.  I transferred from a traditional college where I played baseball against big schools like LSU, USC, Tulane and etc (Southern University).  I can honestly say that the curriculum is no different neither is the level of difficulty any different.  I go to campus so I get a different experience than most students and I did enlighten my future employer about that because they were skeptical.  If you have not signed up for DeVry, try looking into some state schools, if you are enrolled already, work hard and study study study because an education is what you make it no matter what school you attend.  Hope this helps.

I believe everyone here has had different experiences with DeVry.  Metophorically speaking it is like McDonalds.  One can go in and be satisfied with their meal, and another could eat the same meal and be sick for three days.  This still does not discredit McDonalds as a leading fast food chain.  

I can agree with some in that DeVry is looking for money.  But what college or University is not.  Yes you will find different prices.  My local college is $500 for 12credits.  DeVry is running me $5000 for 12 credits.  It is a big difference but the local college does not provide a specialized degree.  I am getting a Bacholers degree in Network Communication Management.  I have searched everywhere for a BS in the technology field, and all I find is Computer Science or Information System.  I will choose the Networking.  The only regret I have is that I am not getting the hands on experience at school.  Although, I do work for a school district doing IT work, therefore I get the hands on experience at work while learning in the online environment.  In addition, I could still move to a city that has a DeVry campus.  It is your decision to choose the campus or online.  I would not goto DeVry for a simple business degree, unless you are forced to choose online education.  Even then major university offer cheaper and a better named degree plan.  I would only attend DeVry if you are interested in Technology.  Computer engineering, network communications, electrical engineering.  My boss graduated DeVry under the electrical engineering program and became Director of Technology for our school district making 60-70k a year.  It can be done.  Jobs are looking for a degree to get passed HR, but they are looking for a person who has experience and knows how to get the job done.


I have alot to talk about DeVry because I have several opinions myself.  I am currently enrolled and am going through the system.  I do have to agree with some of the people saying the curriculum is a joke.  I have had some classes that are a breeze, and the finals and tests have nothing to do with the material.  But I have taken the 4 basic Cisco classes.  The Ilab(virtual lab) experience has been a blast.  I have been able to configure routers, and setup Active Directory on servers.  Certain things that would require thousand dollar equipment to do.  

I would recommend DeVry to anyone looking for a specialized degree in networking or computers.  I would really recommend the online program for someone who wants those degrees, and cannot move to a city with Universities.  What I do not recommend is going there for a business degree, or expect to have cheap tuition.  But, as you can see some of the comments are from people who did the business program and have stable decent jobs.

Do not go to Devry unless you want to be over charged!  All they care about is getting money, not the student.  

1. When I first signed up with Devry, I decided I wanted to cancel the application process.  It took 3 months of me constantly emailing and calling them for me to receive my refund of $50.
2. When I realized I would not be moving out of state after all, I starting inquiring about the BA program again.  The representative was very helpful at this point.  However, the entire time she did not inform me that I would have to take out a student loan or pay cash.  The MGIB does not pay me until the end of the month and Devry collects in the beginning.    
3. Mid January I received a bill for $3,110 from Devry for the 2008 fall semester.  I was in shock!  I had not even signed up for classes yet and I was already receiving a large, incorrect bill.  Of course, I had to waste my time getting the mistake corrected.  They signed me up for courses without my knowledge.
4. I later met w/the Financial Aid rep to discuss FA and she told me I would have to get a student loan or pay cash.  I was very frustrated because my husband and I are in the process of buying our first home so we cannot take out any loans or pay a large amount of cash in the beginning of the month.  I feel that Devry is unfair to veterans since they will not accept payments at the end of the month when the student is paid from the VA and that I was mislead.  I feel that due to this lack of information being given to the student in the beginning of the application process and every one that was involved wasted their time.
 
 
Now I am on to the next battle, getting my refund of $100.  I am uncertain as to why the original application fee was $50 and the second time it was $100.  I even complained to the Director and no one cares!!!

Why not? I mean, no matter how good something is, there will always be people who bash on it. Especially on the internet. It's inevitable.

What do you want to do for a career? If you want to pursue something like IT or Business, Devry might be a fit for you. A BS from Devry will get you a job just as well as a BS from a traditional school. If your passion is something else (Art, English, History, Education), obviously Devry probably won't be for you. 

Something else to consider is time restraint. I'm going to be working 40 hours a week, so Devry's flexible scheduling is very accommodating. For working adults in general, Devry seems to be a good fit. It's only for the young kids out of HS that think Devry isn't for them because it's much more focused. No parties, no frats, no sports. Work, work, work.

Hope that helps.

As a student at DeVry and soon a graduate, I must say that had I known a bit more about DeVry I would have chosen a different school, ie. State School (Georgia State or Kennesaw State).  I am a transfer student from Southern University A&M College, where I played baseball, and a close friend of mine who is doing very well graduated from DeVry and Keller, had given me a little interest in the school system.

Well, this Summer I will start with a Big 4 Accounting Firm, actually the largest firm in the world.. hint hint... I must say that they were a bit shocked when they learned that I was a student from DeVry, but having maintained a 3.8 and tax experience with the IRS decorated my resume a bit.

At the end of the day, in regards to the employer and in my field of Accounting, it's all about character, personality and your ability to communicate effectively.  Furthermore, it is your entire persona that attracts employers to you.  You have to know how to sell yourself.  Yeah Yeah, I go to DeVry and I am about to graduate, could I have chosen a better state school, yeah... I'm here now and I will make the best of it.

One true characteristic that I possess is that I am a hard working, wity individual and I will make something happen and that is the attitude that you have to have.  Of course I am going to a state school for Graduate, but hey, it is what it is...  True, going to DeVry, have I met many others like myself?... No... There are far more ignorant students that don't have a clue about life and the many possibilities that life has to offer.

To the nay sayers, I understand where you're coming from at the end of the day... What can you do for me?

I will be working for a Big 4 Accounting firm and I made it happen... I was in a huge interview session amongst Southern Cal, UGA, Penn St. and many other big schools and I outshined most of them and you can't tell me nothing.

It's funny how you continue to bash on Devry's strong points, such as curriculum, materials and faculty and actually expect people to believe you.  Let's think about this..

On one hand, we have student testimonials, high employment statistics, regional accreditation and a slew of other things saying their stuff is up to date in the IT field.

But on the other, we have an immature poster who believed his degree would immediately land him a dream job but failed to realize that it actually requires effort on his part. Same guy who spends his time replying to everything post by post on a message board for almost a year. (I was bored and read it, since I am a prospective student)

Gee, let's think. Who should we trust?

School reputation doesn't mean crap on a resume, unless maybe if you went to an Ivy league school or something. It's about your experience, what you bring to the table and job-related specialties that get you the job. A degree without any experience is just a paper.

Grow up and think about it.

It looks to me like there is really just a small number of the same people here bashing DeVry under different names to give the illusion there are many people. I mean, how many people are stupid enough (for college grads, anyway) to write 2 cents this way: 2¢s? What, oh college grad with 4.0 GPA, is the 's' at the end for? 

BTW, do you even know what a spellchecker is? Handy little application you might want to try if you wish to be taken seriously by fellow online forum posters or, say, potential job interviewers. Maybe they were laughing at how bad you spell... for a college grad with a 4.0, that is. Just MY two pennies.

No not really, Devry is not what you put into it. It is what they give you. The course materials are outdated, the cirriculum is substandard, and many of the faculty are unhelpful. By the time you are finished HR is laughing you out of the interview. Save your 2¢s and go to a reputable school.

I find it very telling that most of the negative reviews here have horrible spelling, grammar and punctuation problems. The people writing these reviews complain of getting a bad education but they can't even spell or use a spell-checker! One guy even admitted to getting a 2.8 GPA, and then later claimed to "bust his ass" getting it. A 3.8 GPA, in my opinion, would be a better indicator of your willingness to learn, dude.

Oh, and for future reference to the obvious idiots out there who "ain't got no gud educashun from no devry": the little red lines under the words mean they are spelled wrong!

You realize that you've been posting on this thread for almost almost 9 months now? What exactly do you do these days? Do you religiously check this thread to put down people who say positive things about the school? That's akin to what a typical internet troll does. How can anybody here take you seriously when you've been wasting 9 months of your life putting down anonymous people on the internet? 

If you put in half as much effort into genuinely applying yourself with a Devry degree and not on bitching about the school itself, I'm sure you wouldn't have the time to be posting here now.

What I found humorous about your rant was that you believed that just because Devry had a high employment placement statistic, you were exempt from working your ass off to actually get the job. That's like waving a lottery ticket and hoping it's a jackpot winner... and not even circling your numbers, even! It's immature and ultimately destroys your entire argument here. A rule of thumb is that employers don't generally care about the pedigree of the school as they do about what your experience. And guess what.. Devry gives you that.

And your "Devry grads need not apply" argument doesn't even hold a candle to the 90% statistic the school holds, student testimonials and obvious employer preferences.

You really need to get control of yourself. You obviously have major issues, i'm sure that is why you can't get a good job. I am an IT network manager, 12 years+, and I can tell you that 90% of hiring managers can read right through the type of person you are, and not hire you. Terrible attitude, loser mentality who thinks he should be handed everything, it's called a bad seed, and no one wants or needs this at their company. If you had a 4.0 gpa, you would be smart enough to apply yourself in the real world. I have hired several grads, many from devry, they are all hard workers with great attitudes. They showed me this sight and it is funny how many times you are on here, so we decided to leave you a message. I now have talked to a few other companies about devry, and none of them say they discriminate against a devry grad. Like I said I am sure the problem is you. So go ahead and throw a little fit now so people that read this can keep on laughing at you. I promise we won't be back on here, to busy living our happy lives in the real world.

Please do not listen to these people saying terrible things about DeVry. I am getting my degree in Technical Management. I started going to a university years ago but had to quit because I could not get my classes around my work schedule. Devry online is a God sent. I feel that you learn more in an online setting then you do in a class setting. More people get to give their input which you end up getting a clearer understanding. I read some of the posts here but not all. One person mentioned that they could not find a decent job after graduation and is know only making $10 an hour. This same person also mentioned they graduated with a 2.5 GPA. Just to let you know, employers look at GPA when selecting a candidate for a job opening. I have a 4.0 so far with only one year to complete my degree. Who do you think the employer will hire first? The person with a 2.5 or a 4.0? Don't just go to school to get a degree, go to learn. A person with a 2.5 did not learn much. And please do not give me stories about not having time to study. I work 10 hours a day, 5 days a week, have a husband and 4 children and I manage to maintain a 4.0.
