Program Update: DeVry Continues Partnership Support for Team USA Athletes


In the spirit of proud partnership since 2011, our friends at DeVry University remain dedicated to helping eligible Team USA athletes complete their degree at DeVry. You can explore one of DeVry’s many 100% online degree or certificate programs in areas like business, technology and more, with classes starting every eight weeks, year round, to help school fit your life.

Whether you’re already enrolled or thinking about applying, you have an ongoing opportunity to pursue your academic and career goals with support of DeVry University. Recognizing the postponement of the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020, we’ve extended our partnership through September 2021. For all Team USA athletes who are active students in good standing1, your benefits will continue until graduation. For all eligible Team USA athletes interested in DeVry’s partnership benefits2, the last day to apply for the full VIK scholarship program is 12/20/2020, and the 30% tuition savings and JumpStart Your Education3 program will continue through 12/31/2020.

You deserve every chance to reach for your dreams! For more information about DeVry programs and the partnership, please visit For details on eligibility for the scholarship, visit or email
