Bachelor's Program Overview

DeVry University began in the 1930s as a training school that prepared professionals for technical work in electronics, motion pictures, radio and television. DeVry still embraces its technology roots, offering more than a dozen online bachelor's degree programs in engineering and information sciences. Additional bachelor's degrees are offered in business administration, technical management, communications, health care administration and more.

A for-profit institution, DeVry University is regionally accredited by The Higher Learning Commission, a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. Most bachelor's degree programs can be earned entirely online and students have the option to complete in-person courses at one of DeVry's more than 90 locations nationwide.

Professors at DeVry must have at least a master's degree in their field and are required to complete professional development training. Courses are offered year-round and students can interact with classmates through online discussion boards, chat rooms and optional group projects. Students also have access to 24/7 technology support, live tutoring and career placement assistance services. Members of the U.S. military and their spouses are eligible to receive a discount on tuition. Payment plans are also available to all students.

DeVry University, a proprietary institution, has been offering online bachelor's degree programs since 1997-1998.
