It's true what they say about for-profit schools. I am very unhappy after attending DeVry University. In the end it all comes down to the institution making profit as opposed to providing high-standard education. The instructors taught very well, however, my high school courses were a lot more beneficial to me then the classes DeVry offers. I had two friends who wanted to attend and I advised them that if they have money to waste then DeVry is the way to go!!

I would also like to add that I have never complained about a company or an institution. I am so glad that I realized how horrible DeVry is in the early stage of my enrollment.

    My complaint is about the false advertising of Devry University. During pre-entrance interviews, i was told that I was guaranteed a job after graduation. I was also told that I would be placed into an internship and most likely be hired by the company after graduation. The job placement program at Devry was supposed to be top notch. Well, i graduated in June 2017, and I am still unemployed. I have not been able to find a job in my field because my training was not extensive enough. The school did not place me. The placement officer sent me on about 3 interviews, and they were after I graduated. Meanwhile, I have about $75, 000 in student loans and no job. The university is expensive, but since I was assured a job after graduation, that did not concern me. Something needs to be done about their unethical practices. I would like to have them contacted and see what they have to say.

    James, ignore PSU clown he is a very negative and obnoxious person who posts on here to get people down...its seems he gets off on it. Wants to take the energy and inspiration away from people who are hoping for affirmation here. A sick individual full of negative viewpoints and he/it is almost always in support of corporations who are screwing the little guy all over the world.

    1. They have taken away credit that I transferred in from my AS that were given to me when I first registered.

    2. They did not keep up with my degree program credits. They have in their database giving me credit for one class and now are telling me I have to take it over again.

    3. I was told I only had 4 classes left and was supposed to graduate this June, now that I made a big deal about that one class they want me to take over suddenly I have 4 more classes I have to take.

    You contradict yourself in your compalaint. You said that DeVry guarenteed you a job at graduation, and in the next sentence you said that you would be "most likely placed in a job". Which is it? Why should people believe you when you contradict yourself from sentence to sentence?

    I would like to look into a class-action lawsuit against devry and their unethical, deceptive financial practices. My son was a minor when he first went to devry (I refuse to capitalize their name) and it has been a financial nightmare. We (both my son and I) have been trying to get from them a financial accounting of his time there SINCE 2017 and we are continually being ignored. There must be a way to STOP THESE PRACTICES or at least make them VERY PUBLIC. If anyone is serious or would like to participate in a class action lawsuit to recover funds from this school, please contact me at [protected]

    @James Finger, ...Well, from what I have read, Devry DOES NOT guarantee ANYONE job. The DO NOT guarantee you ANYTHING! I hate to say clearly did not read...they do not put it in fine print either and at NO TIME do they ever tell you that they are going to give you anything but an [email protected] and yes, he does contradict himself...whaaaaaaa whaaaaa, that's all I heard in that post...I guess it must be the person...Ok, who ever said that credits from Devry don't transfer, they are a LIAR!!! I am writing this because I know someone who attended Devry and was very happy with the outcome. My hubby, attended Marist College on a football scholarship and after three (3) years, left with a 1.89 GPA (I know, I know, pathetic) I guess being a social butterfly in college wasn't going to get him a 4.0...LOL...but, he decided to attend Devry, he attendend and finished 45 credits, got his GPA up to a 3.98 and transfered to Fordham University where he completed one more year, graduated and moved on to law school...(bragging a bit here) he got a 164 on his LSAT's. So here goes...all these dumb a**es that are ragging on Devry CLEARLY failed and are not trying to blame the school. It's tough doing online classes, trust me, I have to be dedicated and have a brain. Stop ragging on a school that accepted your bumb a** and get a life...Devry is NOT a bad fact, there isn't such a thing as a bad school...just bad, ungreatful students! stop writing such horsecrap and get a life
