I have spent the last five days doing research on DeVry. I have been attending this school for a year, I was pleased until I saw all the bad reviews. Now I am just confused. I will admit, they are pricey. But not that much more than other colleges. It upsets me all the posts about saying if your a DeVry student you are stupid. I have a 4.0 and in High school even I have a good GPA. I'm worried that my degree wont mean anything when I graduate. But as a single mother, what choice do I have? Its hard enough just keeping up with DeVry, I couldn't go to a school unless they were flexible like DeVry is. I'm just not sure what to believe. Please if anyone has input let me know.

So far my experience with Devry is great. I like the online courses because I can fit them in between work schedules. Yes it is tough to balance life and school but am hoping with the grades I am getting and the experience I have had in the blue-collar world, it will land me with a job I can be proud of.

I love Devry!!!!!! I am in my last semester and then I only have an 80 hour practicum in July. To complete my associates degree in Health Information Technology. This school is expensive but for me it was definitly worth it. I never had a problem with financial aid or any of my professors. I never failed a class, and I had to work my butt off for my good grades. I am a single mother of two young boys, and this school made it possible for me to receive my degree while staying home with them.

I love this school. The facilities are excellent, the computer support network is superb. Instructor are very helpful and extremely qualified. I have received tutelage from instructors I was not even enrolled with. Student Activities program is off the hook. I highly recommend!

So far I love it!
I had so far excellent teachers. MAny of them had graduate from UCLA or USC. I consider that the School may be better at the financial department but so far, I have not encounter with problems. I'm looking forward to graduate in 2011 and pursued my MBA.
Also I found out that DeVry has excellent support for foreign students to come to the U.S to get their degrees.
Overall, I love my school, and what gave me piece of mine, was to know that it is credited and that if I want to transfer later on to UCLA they will be able to take my DeVry University credits.

Great School. I did Bachelor's Degree in 2 years after transfering credit hours from a community collage. Devry University was the best decision I have ever made. Was expensive but definitely worth it.

I can't say enough good things about my experience at Devry. The staff is helpful and my classes have been challenging and rewarding. I can't wait to graduate with my MBA and apply it toward moving upward in my career.

I am a 1994 BSEET graduate of the DeVry Phoenix campus. As was the case with 35 of 37 of my graduating class I had multiple offers and had accepted a position prior to graduation. Many of the offers I received including the one I accepted were from Fortune 500 companies.
My career has thrived across several industries since graduation and I have never had an issue with acceptance of my education by employers or graduate schools. My salary has been at solid 6 figure levels for many years and my total annual income is multiple six figures.
The curriculum was challenging with particular focus on application of concepts which translated well to the professional world upon graduation. My early career employers valued my ability to immediately make an impact and solve complex technical and engineering problems.
In my opinion it is important for anyone entering the university to be fully informed of the costs, the curriculum and the course schedule. This of course applies to students of any university. To have a positive experience students must do the work, engage in the learning process and own their effort and results.
As a for profit university DeVry has two products. The first is the education that it provides to its students. The second is the graduates that DeVry provides to industry. Because it is a market driven business the products provided by DeVry must be effective or the financial performance of the corporation will suffer. The education programs are developed with guidance from industry professionals and those programs are designed to generate graduates that meet the stipulated needs of the industries that they serve.
The onus of success lies with the individual student who must make the effort to get the most from their DeVry tuition dollars. No one will do it for you. No one will spoon feed you at any stage of your DeVry experience. You must engage with the professors, the administrative staff, the financial aid staff and with the support professionals to be fully informed about all aspects of your education effort.
