DeVry students to get $2,800 each

Aug 18, 2017 by

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in January reached a settlement with DeVry University, a for profit college that was accused of exaggerating the prospects that were offered to students who attended the school.

Now the AG has a breakdown of the $2.27 million restitution settlement that was reached with DeVry.

On average each of the 809 students will get about $2,800, he said.

Here are the details:

Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman today announced that hundreds of students will receive restitution following the Attorney General’s investigation into DeVry Education Group, Inc. and its subsidiaries DeVry University, Inc. and DeVry/New York, Inc. (collectively, “DeVry”). The Attorney General’s investigation found that DeVry lured students with ads that exaggerated graduates’ success in finding employment and contained inadequately substantiated claims about graduates’ salary success. The Attorney General reached a $2.25 million settlement with DeVry in January 2017.
