Request Info Compare This School


DeVry University is an international educational institution offering technical education and degrees to students at multiple locations. The campus in Irving, Texas is located in between Carpenter Freeway and the LBJ Freeway, a few minutes from both downtown Dallas and the DFW International Airport. It offers all the standard DeVry programs and majors.


There are two major fields of undergraduate study: Business and Management, and Engineering and Information Sciences. Business and Management includes such specialities as Business Information Systems, Sales and Marketing, Technical Communication, and Small Business Management and Entrepreneurship. Engineering and Information Sciences includes Electronics Engineering Technology, Network and Communications Management, and several sub-specialties within Computer Information Systems. Similar specialities are offered on the graduate level through DeVry’s Keller School of Management. Students may cross-register at classes at the campuses in Fort Worth and at the Richardson Center. They may also take classes online as they wish.

Unique Programs

Co-Op Program

The Co-Op program provides students with work experience in their field of study while they’re still in classes. To apply, students must be currently enrolled in their third term or beyond, and have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher. Co-Op opportunities involve between 15 to 35 hours of work per week. Flexible shift opportunities to fit class schedules are available.

While in the Co-Op program, students can apply classroom learning to real-world experiences, establish professional contacts, build their resumes, achieve a transition to post graduate employment, and, of course, earn money. Interested students must attend a Co-Op workshop prior to enrolling in the program. Workshops are held at the end of every semester. Available Co-Op jobs are organized on the Career Services website.

Educator Fellowship Program

The university offers special tuition rates to educators. Any teacher employed full time at an accredited elementary, middle, junior high, high school, college, or university is eligible to take undergraduate or graduate coursework for 60% tuition rates. Many educators take advantage of this program to attend Keller Graduate School of Management.

Career Workshops

In addition to credit coursework, the university offers optional workshops to help prepare students to transition from school to successful careers. Such workshops included HerWorld, an interactive presentation for women entering technical fields, and CareeReality, a workshop on cutting-edge technologies, what skills are necessary to master them, and how they have changed career fields in recent years.


Prospective students must have an interview with an official university admissions advisor or admissions representative. Applicants must also be at least 17 years old when they begin classes and have earned a GED or have graduated from high school.

Applicants are automatically accepted if they have:

  • Earned a qualifying associate degree or higher from an approved institution
  • Completed a significant amount of college-level work from an approved institution with a GPA of at least 2.0 and no grades below a C
  • An average GPA of 3.0 in a high school mathematics course of 3.0 or higher and a class rank in the 50th percentile or above and an overall GPA of 2.70 or higher at the end of the student’s junior year or later.

Applicants who do not meet the above standards must do one of the following: submit a SAT or ACT score that demonstrates capability; earn appropriately high scores on placement tests; or submit proof of acceptable grades in qualifying classes at an approved institution.

Financial Aid

There are a wide range of financial aid options open to students, including loans, grants, and scholarships. Scholarships include the Dean’s scholarships for high school seniors, which awards $1,500 per term to applicants with qualifying SAT or ACT scores; Community Scholar awards, which award $1,000 per term to one student each for every high school in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metropolitan area; the Cisco Networking Academy Scholarship; and the Community College Scholarships, which award $1,500 per term to qualifying students who enter after earning an associate degree at a community college.

The university in Irving partners with Collegiate Housing Services, offering affordable housing in apartment complexes close to campus.

Student Services

The Student Services office offers a wide range of support services to assist students in academic success. These services include academic counselling, career counselling, employment placement services, personal counselling, testing services, and disability services.

The university takes a very active role in placing graduates in employment. The university’s online system allows students to create and post resumes online, search job openings, send their resume to promising employers, and set up interviews. Employers, in turn, can search and read student resumes on line, post job interviews, and schedule interviews and special events.
