Item 7.01     Regulation FD Disclosure

On April 2, 2009, the Company announced that it had completed its acquisition of a majority stake in Fanor, a leading provider of private postsecondary education in northeastern Brazil.

Founded in 2001 and based in Fortaleza, Ceará, Brazil, Fanor is the parent organization of Faculdades Nordeste, Faculdade Ruy Barbosa, and Faculdade FTE ÁREA1.  These institutions operate five campus locations in the cities of Salvador and Fortaleza, and serve more than 10,000 students through undergraduate and graduate programs focused in business management, law and engineering.

Under the terms of the final agreement, DeVry purchased an 82.3 percent majority stake in Fanor, including real estate and also reducing Fanor’s debt, for a total cash outlay of $40.4 million.
