Transfer Credits

The Bad

  • Cost

Cost

DeVry University charges $514 per credit hour for undergraduate certificates and $776 per credit hour for graduate certificates. Costs can add up quickly for a certificate program, especially if it's supplementing an associate, bachelor's, or master's degree. 

However, active military members and veterans benefit from reduced tuition rates, tuition assistance, and military partnerships. And other students may be eligible for DeVry's financial aid programs including the Business Edge Scholarship, the DeVry Opportunity Grant, and a corporate tuition savings program. 

 

The Bottom Line

DeVry University may be a good option for students looking to transfer since they have a good transfer credit acceptance. And the convenience of ongoing enrollment in the 8-week classes allows for students with short-term or long-term plans to start a certificate program. 

If you enroll with DeVry, be sure to look into the university's tuition assistance options along with government grants and scholarship opportunities.
