I started for my BSEET Sprint of 2009, I looked for ABET accreditation. It was a toss up between Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) and DeVry. RIT required I show up on campus at least 1 a semester, in New York..., couldn't do that on a continual basis for an online degree. I went the direction of DeVry and I have not looked back. I have been in the electronics industry for years and this degree has helped me fill in a lot of holes that I had. Most all the teachers were good (PhD's most) I have skyped with lots of people across the country. It is a tough doing a class online at any school and I have heard lots of stories from other people whom knew of people going to DeVry that dropped out because it was so hard. I have one more 1 credit hour class, then I am done, pretty sure the DeVry BS online is just as good as attending a campus, maybe more because I had to have the initiative to do the work, nobody to hold my hand.

I wouldn't recommend this school to my worst enemy. Out of more than 100 credits they transferred on 16. They started me out in classes that I had already taken. of coarse by the time I realized they weren't going to cover any new material I was already thousands of dollars in debt and it was too late to drop the courses without getting an failing grade or get my money back. After a couple of semesters the work load more than doubled. It went from about hundred pages of reading a HW assignment and one discussion per week/class to 200-300 pages of reading , a HW assignment, Two discussions, two labs, and a quiz per week/class. There are no holidays and almost no vacations for online student. Only 2 weeks off every 4 months or so. If your smart enough to keep up with this schedule and not burn out you should be going to an IV league school.

For incoming student _ by the time you guys learn about devry (it's not a educational institute it's a education business ). And I'm sorry to say money+time=0.

DON'T GO TO DEVRY. Quality and quantity is not same thing. if it's not a matter go Devry and learn what is quality of education & what's the standard. I give you guys some example like if you have a ripped 100 dollar bill, you can not transfer that bill, even you can not throw. If you like to transfer you credit you have to paidoff all your due then they help you. Otherwise they hold your account. Another one thing if you not receive any financial aid and drop one semester then try to start your school but they do not allow you to take class until clear your due. They call you sand mail start you payment otherwise we send your info to collection agency (open threat but technical way). Olny money money money & money. For incoming student _ by the time you guys learn about devry (it's not a educational institute it's a education business ). And I'm sorry to say money+time=0. So my suggestion you play with your money, so invest right place, not like Devry at all.

I am a former Marine, and after getting out of the military I was looking for a school that could get me an accredited bachelors degree as soon as possible. DeVry University was that place. The faculty were knowledgeable industry professionals, that were there for you when you needed them. I graduated with a 3.7 GPA and was hired by a well known Fortune 500 company MONTHS BEFORE I even graduate. Like a previous poster commented, college is all about your individual effort. It does not matter what school you go to, if you are willing and eager to learn, you will. And, potential employers will see that eagerness in you. Like everything else in life it is all about your individual effort. A Grateful Graduate
