Item 1.01
Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On May 10, 2011, DeVry Inc. (“DeVry”),  the lenders described in the paragraph immediately below, and Bank of America, N.A., as Administrative Agent, entered into a new revolving credit agreement (the “Credit Agreement”). The amount of borrowing capacity available under the Credit Agreement is $400 million, with an option to request an increase of an additional $150 million, as needed, in the future.  The Credit Agreement has a five year term ending May 2016.

The new Credit Agreement replaces DeVry’s prior $175 million credit facility that was set to expire in January 2012, which included Bank of America, Bank of Montreal, Northern Trust, and JP Morgan Chase as the lending group.  The new Credit Agreement includes these existing lenders along with six other banks (PNC, US Bank, Fifth Third Bank, RBS Citizens, Associated Bank, and HSBC), with Bank of America serving as the administrative agent and  Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith as the lead arranger.
 
Borrowings under the Credit Agreement bear interest at LIBOR plus 175 basis points, although higher margins up to 250 basis points may apply based on the ratio of consolidated total debt to EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization). The Credit Agreement contains customary affirmative, negative and financial maintenance covenants, representations, warranties, events of default and remedies upon default including acceleration, and borrowing conditions. Full details of the Credit Agreement are contained in the agreement included as Exhibit 4.1 to this Form 8-K. Currently, there are no outstanding borrowings under either the expiring or new credit agreements.

There is no material relationship between DeVry or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates and any of the lending parties or the administrative agent, other than in respect of the Credit Agreement and certain banking relationships all entered into in the ordinary course of business.

A copy of the news release issued by the Company on May 12, 2011 announcing the new Credit Agreement is included as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is hereby incorporated by reference.
 
The information in this Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1, is being furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section, nor shall it be deemed to be incorporated by reference in any registration statement or other document filed under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Exchange Act, except as otherwise stated in such filing.
 
Forward Looking Statements
 
Certain statements contained in this Form 8-K and related press release, including those that affect DeVry’s expectations or plans, may constitute forward-looking statements subject to the Safe Harbor Provision of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.

Because these forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, there are important factors that could cause DeVry’s actual results to differ materially from those projected or implied by these forward-looking statements.  Additional information regarding factors that could cause results to differ can be found in DeVry’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010 and quarterly reports on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarters ended September 30, 2010, December 31, 2010 and March 31, 2011.
