Devry University / overcharging
It is easy to sue any business in California in small claims court and you can do it yourself. No attorneys are necessary and you can sue them in the city in which you attended school even though they have corporate offices in Los Angeles and they are an Illinois company. Unlike California, Illinois has no consumer protection laws and small claims court is useless as everything is geared to protect the businesses.
We are very fortunate in California to have excellent consumer protection resources and one of those is the California Small Claims Court System. I have used it successfully many times.
You do not need a lawyer as no lawyers are allowed in small claims court. I sued DeVry University in small claims court here in San Diego and won a judgment against them for $6500.00 which I am currently working on collecting. In addition, I am about to file a second lawsuit to recover another $7500.00 in lost student financing.
When you file your case at your local California Small Claims Court, they have free legal advisors that will help you to file and prepare your case. It is very easy and simple.
It costs under $100. to file and serve a small claims case.
If you want to sue Devry at any of the Southern California Campuses then you will need the name and address that appears on their business license. This is public information available for free at the website for your county registration office so I am not divulging any private information here;
CT Corporate System dba Devry University

If they owe you money, Don't let them get you. It does not matter what they got you to sign if they lied to you verbally while you were signing it. Also, they must provide you with a copy of anything you sign and in my case they even failed to do that so anything I signed is not valid.
And the small claims court judge agreed with me!!!
