Precautionary Measures We Are Taking to Keep Our Students and Community Safe

Fostering a healthy campus community is of the utmost importance to DeVry University. As such, while we are not aware of any confirmed COVID-19 cases at any of our locations, DeVry University temporarily closed all locations out of an abundance of caution starting Friday, March 13, 2020. It is imperative that we do what we can to help prevent the spread of the virus and keep our students, faculty and colleagues safe.

In an effort to follow the Centers for Disease Control’s social distancing guidelines, DeVry University will continue to convert onsite courses to virtual instruction for the July 2021 session.

There are no changes for students currently enrolled in our existing online modality.

July Session onsite courses will remain online, and online courses will continue as planned starting Monday, July 5, 2021. Inquire here for more information.

May Session onsite courses will remain online, and online courses will continue as planned starting Monday, May 3, 2021. Inquire here for more information.

Because DeVry’s locations are closed temporarily, all campus events scheduled through Monday, August 30, 2021 are canceled. Any student or club meetings will need to be rescheduled or held virtually.

This is an extraordinary situation, and DeVry has made careful considerations knowing students, faculty and colleagues are concerned for their personal health, and that of their families and friends. The university understands the inconvenience students may experience with not being able to come to campus; however with our culture of CARE, this is the right move for DeVry and our larger campus community.

Important Update Regarding DeVry University 2021 Commencements

In January 2021, DeVry University announced it is continuing remote learning and operations through the end of June 2021. As such, DeVry will host commencements ceremonies virtually, as we did in 2020, since we do not know how long the direct impact of COVID-19 will last.

Please know this decision was not made lightly, as we know how important this milestone is for our students and their families. It is made of out of an abundance of caution, as well as in consideration for those graduating students, their families and friends, and in alignment in DeVry University’s Return-to-Onsite plans.

We are designing 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 a traditional normal ceremony, but we will come together in another way to award and celebrate the degrees they and their fellow graduating students have so diligently earned.

The commencements will be held in July 2021 and include those who were/are eligible to graduate from the July 2020 through July 2021 sessions. Should there be a future graduation students would like to participate in, they will be welcomed, but we don’t want them to miss this immediate opportunity to celebrate their accomplishments in our virtual commencement ceremony.

These may be unprecedented times, but we know that graduation is an important personal and professional milestone. As such, DeVry is doing all we can to celebrate our students and all they’ve accomplished, while keeping them and their families safe.

Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds (HEERF II) Application Details

Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA) includes a Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF II) that provides emergency funding to higher education. These funds are meant to help campus-based and online undergraduate and graduate students with exceptional need with expenses they have incurred as a result of COVID-19.

All students who meet the initial eligibility requirements will be notified by April 1, 2021 and provided instructions on how to apply via the student portal. Eligible students must submit the HEERF II Emergency Aid Request Form available on the student portal by the deadline provided in their email notification. After the request is reviewed, students will be notified of their request status, and if approved, how much funding will be awarded. Award amounts will be divided equally among all eligible students who submit by the deadline, and decisions are not appealable.

Student who have any questions about the HEERF II grant funding, wish to discuss other funding options or have additional questions should contact their Student Support Advisor.

Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds (HEERF) Reporting – March 31, 2021

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 March 31, 2021, we have received $4,713,768 in grant funding for this purpose.

The institution identified 4,015 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 March 31, 2021 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 January 30, 2021, and will continue to update Quarterly going forward. For previous reports, please click here.
