The Carlson Law Firm is currently investigating claims against DeVry for current and former students. We believe you may be eligible for refunds and compensation, even if you receive some benefits from the FTC settlement program.
For years, DeVry marketed for new students touting a claimed high employment rate for recent graduates. DeVry ads made claims such as "90% of our grads actively seeking employment had careers in 6 months.” DeVry also claimed that graduates from DeVry would earn more than those graduating with bachelor’s degrees from other colleges or universities. These representations were proven false and unsubstantiated.
Following an investigation, DeVry agreed to settle a lawsuit alleging its ads misled prospective students. According to the FTC, the settlement will pay $49.4 million in cash to be distributed to “qualifying” students who were harmed by the deceptive ads, as well as provide certain types of debt relief.
As a current or former DeVry student you may have a claim against DeVry under the Deceptive Trade Practices-Consumer Protection Act, even if you receive some cash or debt relief from the FTC settlement.
If you chose to become a DeVry student because of DeVry ads claiming a high employment rate or higher income for graduates, and you were unable to find employment in your chosen field after graduation, you may be entitled to compensation.
