How to Apply: It's Easier with Our Three-Step Process

Applying for college is a big step—and we’ve worked to make it as smooth as possible. Get started today with our three-step undergraduate and graduate admissions process. Here’s how it works:

1. You apply

Tell us a little about yourself and we’ll help with the rest.

Our convenient online application tool only takes 5 – 10 minutes to complete, but if you need to, you can start it now and return later to finish.

2. We connect

After you submit your application, an admissions representative will contact you.

Our student-focused approach to education means you get the personal support to help with anything you need to complete the college admission process, including:

    • Securing transcripts
    • Transferring qualifying credits
    • Connecting to a student finance professional
    • Getting set up with a Career Services advisor

You will also receive your DeVry ID so you can log in to the Student Portal, a self-directed, personalized portal that helps you stay on track with your college admission process.

    • Submitting proof of graduation
    • Interviewing with Keller
    • Reviewing assessment options
    • Providing official transcripts

If you qualify for admission to Keller, you will be notified in writing of your acceptance within one week of completing all application procedures. Upon notification, you will be notified of any prerequisite coursework that may be required.

3. You get ready

Once you’ve completed your application and connected with an admissions representative, you’re ready to create your schedule. Classes start every eight weeks, and run in two cycles. Take a look at our Academic Calendar to find a start date that works for you. You can always call to speak with an academic advisor if you have questions.

The enrollment process, and everyone I have worked with from DeVry, have been outstanding. I do not feel like just another number. The follow-ups even once you begin classes really let me know I made the right decision choosing DeVry.
