Important Update Regarding DeVry University 2020 Commencements

We are coming into the time of year when graduating students across the country normally are getting ready to don their cap and gowns, and proudly walk across that stage to receive their diploma. Sadly, these are not normal times.

Because we do not know how long the direct impact of COVID-19 will last, DeVry University has made the difficult decision to transition all commencements traditionally held at a local venue to a virtual graduation ceremony. This includes all ceremonies scheduled from May through September 2020.

Please know this decision was not made lightly, as we know how important this milestone is for you and your families. It is made of out of an abundance of caution, as well as in consideration for those graduating students, who may have family and friends traveling to their ceremony.

We are working to design a virtual commencement ceremony that will be an engaging and memorable experience for our graduates. We know that no virtual gathering can possibly match the splendor of our traditional normal ceremonies, but we will come together in another way to award and celebrate the degrees you and your fellow graduating students have so diligently earned.

We don’t have a firm date for our virtual celebration now, and ask for your patience. We will let you know once dates have been determined.

These may be unprecedented times, but we know that graduation is an important personal and professional milestone. As such, we are doing all we can to celebrate you and all you’ve accomplished, while keeping you and your families safe.

DeVry Locations Reopening Plans

Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds (HEERF) Reporting

On March 27, 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”) was passed which authorized funding under the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (“HEERF”) to Institutions of Higher Learning. These funds are required to be provided as Emergency Financial Aid Grants to eligible students for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus.

DeVry University (DVU) signed and returned to the Department of Education its Certification and Agreement on May 8, 2020, with our assurance that DVU intends to use 100% of the Emergency Financial Aid Grants to eligible students. As of October 30, 2020, we have received $4,713,768 in grant funding for this purpose.

The institution identified 5,046 students eligible to participate in programs under Section 484 in Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (the “HEA”) and potentially eligible to receive the Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students. Under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act, As of October 30, 2020 1,888 students have received an emergency grant. Total amount of grant funds disbursed to students at this time is $4,713,768.

To be considered for the HEERF funding, DVU utilized a request form where potentially eligible students confirmed any unexpected expenses that may have been incurred as a result of the disruption of campus operations caused by the COVID-19 pandemic such as expenses for food, housing, course materials and technology, health and childcare. In addition to completing the request form, students must have been enrolled as a regular student in an eligible program of study that was not offered in a 100% online modality in their March 2020 session, and must meet all Title IV general eligibility requirements set forth in HEA Section 484. Students who completed their program of study at the conclusion of the March 2020 session are not eligible. The student must also be enrolled as a regular student in an eligible program of study at the time of disbursement.

DVU determined that the most equitable way to disburse these grant funds to our impacted students, was to divide our total allocation among the eligible students who completed the request form.

Information on the use of these grant funds and how to complete a request form was communicated to students via email the week of May 25th.

Devry University posted their initial 30 day reporting details to its website on June 8, 2020, again for 45 day reporting on July 15, 2020, August 28, 2020, and October 30, 2020, and will continue to update Quarterly going forward. For previous reports, please click here.

Eligible students were contacted by DeVry University via email to complete the FSEOG Emergency Aid Request Form and all available funds were successfully awarded.

We’re here to support you during this extraordinary time. If you wish to discuss other funding options, please contact your Student Support Advisor.
