DeVry University students who may have been lured to the for-profit school by false advertising are eligible for a refund.
The United States Federal Trade Commission will send refund checks to people before the end of summer, according to the FTC’s website. The payouts are part of the FTC’s $49.4 million settlement with DeVry over “deceptive advertising.”
Students are eligible for a partial refund if they attended the school anytime between Jan. 1, 2008 and Oct. 1, 2015; if they paid at lease $5,000 in cash, loans or military aid; if they did not receive debt or loan forgiveness as part of the FTC settlement and if they completed at lease one class credit, according to the FTC.
Students do not need to do anything to receive the refund as the FTC is using DeVry records to identify eligible students.
DeVry operates four locations in Ohio, including ones in Dayton, Columbus , Cincinnati and in Seven Hills, Ohio, near Cleveland, according to DeVry’s website. The Dayton-area office is located at 3610 Pentagon Blvd. in Beavercreek
