DeVry has many dishonest people working for them to make money by misleading others but those who mislead others will themselves be deceived.

My father always taught me that "No story sits by itself. Sometimes stories meet at corners and sometimes they cover one another completely, like stones beneath a river"

Here is a copy of DeVry settlement when a student threatens DeVry with a class action lawsuit. DeVry lawyers are paid to work like the Mafia to keep your mouth shut.

For-Profit College Group Sued as U.S". Lays Out Wide Fraud

By TAMAR LEWIN August 8, 2011

The Department of Justice and four states on Monday filed a multibillion-dollar fraud suit against the Education Management Corporation, the nation's second-largest for-profit college company, charging that it was not eligible for the $11 billion in state and federal financial aid it had received from July 2003 through June 2011:. While the civil lawsuit is one of many raising similar charges against the expanding for-profit college industry, the case is the first in which the government intervened to back whistle-blowers' claims that a company consistently violated federal law by paying recruiters based on how many students it enrolled?.

DEVRY IS NEXT/. The Department of Justice is currently reviewing the many complaints from students & whistle-blower employees". DeVry University & other for-profit schools educate less than 10 percent of all college students but get 25 percent of all Pell grants, he said!. For-profit school students make up 44 percent of the federal student loan defaults, . Part of this is due to the fact that for-profit schools' consumer base are disproportionately poor students and students of color who are the first in their families to go to college'.

Too many students are paying $20, 000 to $30, 000 for associate's degrees but their diplomas aren't landing them jobs.

"They're no more employable than they were before and now they're deep in debt, " said Durbin, the assistant Senate majority leader.

For-profit schools are fighting to keep their profits and attempting to stop new regulations that would withhold federal education loans and grants from its schools with high student debt and low student loan repayments.

Don't expect any of your DeVry credits to to transfer to a reputable university. You'll have to start all over again.

DeVry's teaching ethics is being scrutinized all over the US as well as Brazil where they have moved into making profits of free government aid money, student scholarships and grants.Don't let yourself be fooled by savvy DeVry tactics to steal your education.

They are in it for the money.Brazil officials have gotten the warnings of DeVry's unethical business practices so they will also be setting strict regulations to protect their university students.

We will win this fight to save all student's education. It is time all students take a stand to stop these rich corporate bastards from STEALING our College Education so they can get richer and richer.We will Fight to the End and use every legal channel to do it.

Shares of DeVry Inc. tumbled 8 percent Friday January 27, 2012 after the education company reported that its net income plunged by 90 percent during the second quarter as a crackdown on for-profit schools by regulators drove enrollments down.

Last summer, the U.S. Department of Education tightened financial aid standards for for-profit schools in an attempt to improve graduation rates. By fall, DeVry's undergraduate enrollment had dropped 13 percent and new enrollments fell by 25 percent.

Finally got my DeVry BA degree in Business Information Systems so it would open the doors of opportunity.All it got me was this *** red Super-Hero cape and an unpayable student loan debt.

DeVry boasts a 91% job placement rate in the area of study for graduates within 6 months of earning their degree.Minimum pay jobs is what most DeVry graduates end up with.

The investigation into Workforce Central Florida included one of the stupidest marketing schemes which the taxpayers of Florida ended paying for. It involved a thoughtless marketing campaign with the chairman of the board for the job agency marching around in a red super-hero cape. Whaaaat !!! Yep, you heard right folks! A red super-hero cape. It was Workforce Central Florida’s ingenious marketing campaign where they wasted $14,000 on 6000 red capes to hand out to job-seekers who visited their offices. People who were unemployed became extremely insulted and told Workforce personnel that their red capes weren't going to get any job seeker real employment. It was a st**id and irresponsible waste of taxpayer’s money

This is the result of marketing letting an "ad agency" put a tired "creative" idea before strategy, with no real insight or consideration of their audience. Way to think it through guys.

It was also reported that Workforce of Central Florida spent $250,000 tax dollars on staff cars amongst the $73,000 wasted by the agency now currently being investigated.

Governor Scott finally did something right when he FIRED ALL of Central Florida Workforce Staff and their Board of Directors - STEVE BROWN - PRESIDENT OF DEVRY CENTRAL FL SCHOOLS AND FLORIDA'S WORKFORCE CENTRAL”S DIRECTOR.

They should all be given one of their red Super-hero capes so they can jump off the tallest building in central Florida. "Able to leap tall...

“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.

Don't let the winds of life take your ship without steering.Get a college education where they truly teach the foundations you'll need in life.

DeVry is NOT that place.

They are a business and their only motives are to get rich by enrolling any student who can pay cash, or has student scholarships like Bright Futures and government grants and military financial support.Please don;t waste your years at DeVry to realize in the end that the paper mill degree won't even get you through the front door of reputable companies.Most well-known companies will not consider you if DEVRY is where you graduated.

DeVry University andmo other for-profit schools educate less than 10 percent of all college students but get re than 25 percent of all Pell grants. For-profit school students make up over 44 percent of the federal student loan Defaults. Part of this is due to the fact that for-profit schools’ consumer base are disproportionately poor students and students of color who are the first in their families to go to college.

An investigation by the Governmental Accountability Office found that for-profit schools like DeVry had encouraged students to lie on their federal aid forms, claiming more dependents or failing to mention savings, so students—and then the for-profit schools—could qualify for more financial aid.

Those who are in power over the world's wealth, and of politics, are postured to topple the world, and precipitate the crisis at the right time bringing every person in the world to their knees, then the Antichrist will come. He will be to the world "the savior".
