PayScale’s 2013 report examined the return on investment from 1,060 colleges and universities to determine the potential financial return of attending each school given the cost of tuition and the payoff in median lifetime earnings associated with each school. Colleges and universities were grouped into eight categories: Private Research Universities; Liberal Arts Schools; Arts, Music & Design Schools; Business Schools; Engineering Schools; Ivy League Schools; Private Schools; and Public Schools and then cross-analyzed through PayScale's 40 million career profiles.

Eight additional DeVry University campuses were listed in the report, including Chicago (114th); Pomona, Calif. (125th); Federal Way, Wash. (132nd); Irving, Texas (141st); Phoenix (170th); Kansas City, Mo. (311th); Miramar, Fla. (492nd); and Decatur, Ga. (544th).
