Unlike loans, scholarships and grants generally do not have to be repaid. DeVry University participates in a variety of programs. Grant and scholarship eligibility is based on factors such as enrollment status, financial need, academic merit, or other criteria related to a student's service or circumstance. Explore below to learn more about the specific criteria for each program.

Federal Grant Programs

You automatically apply for federal grant programs by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®). Please note: DeVry University's FAFSA®  School Code is 010727.

Federal Pell Grant Program

Awarded to students who have not earned a bachelor's degree. Award amounts are based on the number of hours enrolled and the Federal Pell Grant program regulations.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG)

Awarded to Pell-eligible undergraduate students (who have not earned a bachelor's degree) who demonstrate exceptional financial need.

Federal Work Study Program

The Federal Work Study (FWS) Program provides funding to DeVry University for jobs that enable students to earn money to help pay for school. Your financial need determines whether you qualify for these jobs and the maximum amount you can earn each year.

Yellow Ribbon Program Participant

The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program) is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008, also known as the Post-9/11 GI Bill® or Chapter 33. The Yellow Ribbon Program allows DeVry University to enter into a voluntary agreement with the Department of Veterans Affairs to contribute funds to our veterans' unmet tuition and fee charges when their tuition and fees charges exceed the maximum amount payable under Chapter 33. The program allows DeVry University to contribute an amount up to 50 percent of veterans' unmet costs; the Department of Veterans Affairs will match the amount. GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government Web site at www.benefits.va.gov/gibill.
