The proliferation of online degree offerings at traditional universities, paired with the federal crackdown on fraudulent recruiting and false job placement data promotion, have siphoned more than 70% of students away from DeVry in the last six years. Community colleges and other institutions are beginning to see enrollment benefits as a result of the for-profit closures.
