I attended DeVry Keller Graduate School from May - July '11. I submitted a DTR claim in May 2020 citing what is known as the “90% job placement” fraudulent claim that was the legal grounds of various class action lawsuits. The most recent was McCormick v DeVry University. A major FTC Settlement in 2015 was decided against DeVry for false advertising on the 90% claim and awarded students compensation who attended DeVry programs between Jan 1, 2008 and December 15, 2016. Numerous criminal and civil probes by Attorneys General have occurred over the years as well.
DeVos incorrectly denied my claim on the basis of “Failure to State A Legal Claim” within the period where her mass blanket denials came under scrutiny from the courts. In December 2020 I received a notice from DOE that due to their ongoing litigation regarding the borrower defense program that my loans would remain in forbearance until the end of the current student loan flexibilities or until ongoing litigation is resolved, whichever is later. I would be notified about when I may need to resume making payments.
Anyone have recommendations on how to proceed or is in a similar situation who did a DeVry degree program? Should I wait for resolution and follow up notice by the DOE or file a new DTR now that Secretary Cardona is showing good faith for full discharges of Corinthian, ITT, et al.? DeVry students are entitled to relief as they have been economically harmed with worthless degrees, and non-transferable units.
