Class-Action Lawsuit Against DeVry University


A class-action lawsuit against DeVry claims that the school misrepresented employment rates and lied to students about earning potential. The plaintiffs contend that almost 90 percent of Keller Graduate School of Management graduates are employed within six months. The firm also claims that its graduates earn an average of 15 percent more than those of other schools. The company denies these allegations and agreed to a settlement with the Federal Trade Commission to avoid a potential lawsuit.

The case was filed in January in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia.

The FTC is pursuing a class-action settlement and has issued a demand for records. The lawsuit seeks to compel DeVry to release records of graduates who were enrolled in its programs and to notify credit bureaus and collection agencies about the results of the relief. The school will also release transcripts and diplomas.

The lawsuit against DeVry cites the university’s claims that graduates would be placed in high-paying jobs. It also alleges that DeVry made deceptive claims about their job placement rates and graduate earnings. According to the FTC, the company’s advertisements were misleading, causing thousands of students to enroll in its programs. These graduates are now suing, claiming that the school has misled them and failed to pay their student loans.

The FTC filed a class-action lawsuit against DeVry, alleging that the school misrepresented its degree outcomes and marketed itself as an educational institution with high job placement rates.

The company has denied these allegations and will face the consequences of the case. The class-action suit against DeVry will help thousands of students get the education they need to obtain a successful career.

The lawsuit against DeVry claims that the school misled prospective students by claiming that its graduates would earn higher salaries.

A class-action lawsuit against DeVry may be filed by the federal trade commission and the U.S. Department of Education.

The FTC’s proposed settlement against DeVry includes a proposed court order prohibiting the school from making similar misrepresentations in the future.

The settlement also includes many good-government requirements that the school must follow. For instance, the company will have to identify all employees who promote the school for the next 20 years and train them on the violation. It will also have to notify former students of their loan forgiveness and other monetary compensation.

In January, the FTC filed a lawsuit against DeVry over false advertising. The college’s marketing claims were made to lure students to enroll in their programs, but in fact, they failed to do so. It also refused to provide students with a diploma if they had not been properly paid for the education. It would not have been possible to obtain a degree if these false claims had been made, so the lawsuit was filed by the federal government.

The FTC settled with DeVry University over false claims about its employment rates. The school did not contribute to the placement of students in jobs.

The FTC decided that the 90-percent claim about job placement was false. Its lawsuit against DeVry cites several other issues as well, including the alleged misrepresentations of its employment rates. Although DeVry does not admit any wrongdoing, the settlement consists of a $105 million settlement for students who are impacted by the company.

The lawsuit also requires DeVry to disclose its actual job placement rates. The college is accused of deceptive advertising, which overstates its graduates’ employment prospects. In the case of T’Lani Robinson, the company has failed to disclose its actual employment rates and hid its true employment status. The university must now disclose the truth about its employment rates in its advertising. In addition, the FTC’s lawsuit requires it to release the diplomas and transcripts of graduates.

  1. Any hope for cancelling debt accumulated while attending the Keller School of Management? DeVry and Keller School of Management had similar practices as ITT and provided false hope to the attendees. Unfortunately, I am $45,000 in debt with a certification in Project Management that is just words on paper without recognition in the industry.
