I enrolled to attend Devry in 2004 i attended class 1 day and had to withdrawal. I had to withdrawal due to my trucks brake system went out and i couldn't drive to school.

The person i spoke with said the money would be return. I've been going back and forth with Devry and the loan company for 11 years now. My loan went into default in 2013 because they claim they never received my deferment form. Ive been deferring...

In 2008, I was searching for an ABET accredited, online Electrical/Electronics Technology Bachelor program. The only program I found that did not require me to travel to another state and spend 2 to 3 weeks do lab work was DeVry University. At the time they advertised that their online BEET program was ABET accredited. They had other programs that were listed as pending or 'onsite' only. When I was going through the registration process, I was asked why I chose DeVry. I expressed the need for an ABET accredited program, and I was welcomed. Two years later, I got a promotional email from...

I was referred to this page by Corrie Wood who saw my post on DeVry’s Facebook page. Please forgive me if my story seems a bit jumbled, as I am still very upset as I am writing it. She directed me to this page and told me to tell my story, so here goes...

Devry has ripped me off of over 3300 and I am a single mom ready to lose everything. I was suppose to get my refund and they sent me an email stating I was not going to get it, that they had sent it back on my behalf. I had used my own money to pay for my supplies because I thought I was going to get my refund. They also charged me almost 4000 for two classes and I just received a bill stating that I owe them money. Do not go to this University they are going to make you lose everything and you will not get your degree....

On my daughter's last tuition bill from DeVry, there was a $646 charge for "Med Ins Prem" on September 10. I called to inquire what it was and was told they sent my daughter an email on September 4 that she needed to "opt out" of a medical insurance plan or they would charge her for it. They refuse to reverse the charge, even though my daughter did not technically sign up for the insurance. Is this even legal?...

I have been going to DeVry since last year March 2012, i transferred from Capella University and I haven't had trouble with my account before. Now that I got transferred to this school that's all I have been having is trouble with them! To start off, they have been holding my grants from me, telling me that they were sending me checks that I never receive and that the money I did get was like $71.00 and $156.00 of my grant. For 2-3 semesters I haven't received my grant. Then I was having problems with them helping me pick out classes for the next semester. My adviser wasn't helping...

After my first semester, still new to this whole university life style. I was doing great. I managed to keep my grades at a 4.5 GPA. I was motivated and happier than I had ever been in my life with a great sense of accomplishment. until, the third semester came around. I went in to schedule my classes at student finance, where I spoke to a my "FINANCIAL ADVISER." my mother and step father were ineligible to provide a parent plus loan all I had was what I could get loaned out. I gave him the four classes that I wanted to attend, we chose the day of the week that my classes were and we said our goodbyes....

DeVry University - Illinois, Naperville - Unfair Financial Aid Handling Practices

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
Date of Problem Occurrence: 2/18/2012 DeVry University granted me a loan of $7, 000 that is for unsubsidized and formally granted it to me. I signed a promissory note with the school and they guaranteed me a loan for $7, 000. I have the proof of the guarantor information on the loan in question. They have since then went and changed it to $5, 987 as the amount I can receive for the year. A senior undergraduate student can receive up to $7, 000 of unsubsidized loans a year for undergraduate study and I am entitled to receive this amount. DeVry University has denied me the right to the full amount...

I sent many complaints to DeVry and to various legal agencies. I spoke to an attorney last Friday and suggested I send out notes about any class action suits against DeVry and joining in them. If you do have one or have an attorney who is willing to engage in class action suit there are plenty of former students who have been ripped off.
If you have info on one please send me an email. theoliversca@gmail.com...

My partner and I lost our jobs. We tried to make arrangements with Devry University to pay my debt, but they refused to work with me. They wanted the full amount on the exact day it was due. I couldn't always do this, but I did the best I could. On June 27, 2012 I received the rudest phone call from some female demanding payment right then and there. I tried to explain that I had previously made arrangements to make my full and final payment to them the next day which was a payday for me. I told her I had an e-mail from Devry confirming this arrangement. Essentially she repeatedly called me...

When I was unemployed in 2007, Know one would hire me because I didn't have a College Degree. However, I saw an on-line add about Devry University. I answered some questions because I wanted more information concerning the "Career Assistance". I got calls from them everyday concerning enrollment. Since I was depressed and vulnerable, because I couldn't find a job. I went in to the location in Gwinnett GA. since they called me everyday. They immediately gave me he FASTA application to fill out. Well to make a long story short. I ended up attending Devry, but I was unable to graduate because...

DeVry University - Misrepresentation

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 4 votes
They misrepresent their Engineering Technology degrees (CET, EET, BMET, ect.) as real engineering degrees. These degrees are NOT real engineering degrees and will not get you real engineering jobs. Engineering tech degrees are best suited for those who can not complete an actual engineering degree. If you want to be an engineer stay far away from DeVry, you are only going to waste money and time like I did.

How to they misrepresent their program? They advertise as an engineering program, their admissions advisers (recruiters) outright lie about the degree and they claim that they...

DeVry University - California - Dissatisfied

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 2 votes
DeVry is manipulating students in my opinion. They have no job leads, scholarships, or grants. First of all, they will let anyone into the school as long as your FAFSA allows you to pay them or borrow at high interest rates. The admissions representatives may attempt to obtain several pieces of information right up front that have nothing to do with your success as a hard working student.

First of all, DeVry doesn't care if you are a good student with high test scores or a good GPA. Admissions wants your social security number and FAFSA so that they can start a borrowing process...

I too was suckered into DeVry. There is this woman Beverly Smith that manipulated me into thinking that DeVry is the choice because of their reputation. Now I think back about it, what was this reputation? All I heard was reputation, I thought about it. That’s all it is, just the word reputation; they have no reputation! First and foremost, the double charged me on my application fee. They promise me that I will not be paying any money out of my pocket until I graduate. Before the first half of the semester was over, I was told I have to pay over $300 or else I cannot continue. Longer story...

“DeVry Inc. a world leader in providing educational services.” The BIGGEST LIE among for-profit schools. DeVry might be a world leader profiting off student scholarships and grants but they don’t deliver the education necessary for graduates to get a decent job afterward. Paper mill degrees are on the rise during the recession with for-profit universities like DeVry making empty promises and robbing students of a valuable university education....

DeVry University - California, Long Beach - Overcharging/Debt Collector

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
First off, before going to this school, I was still in High School. I did some research, and knew Devry was a for profit school and also had a bad reputation of scam/complaints. I liked this school overall, since I attended their PassPort2College Classes since High School. So I believed they would help me. One mistake was, I was told it was cheaper than Cal State and you'll graduate earlier, so I fell for that completely.
- Their workers and teachers are great but I was fooled, after withdrawing from this school, all that friendship went to nothing.
Now the point is I graduated...

I dont know where to begin, in the 3 years I've been with Devry I've been in the dark.. I guess being nieve isn't a good way to start a school like Devry. 1st the advisor talked me into a different degree, not the one I was actually going for.. I went to the financial part and she went over the basics, I thought I knew it all. NOPE. I got into classes about 2 semesters into it I realized I did not like the program I was going for so I decided to change.. I kept emailing the advisor he never responded so I had to go through my financial advisor to get registered for classes.. to make...
