Revenue at Carrington College grew 0.8 percent during the quarter. For the three-month period ending June 30, 2015, new student enrollment increased 56.9 percent to 2,771 versus 1,766 in the previous year, driven by an additional class start at the end of the fourth quarter compared to the prior year.

Revenue for the full year increased 2 percent in fiscal 2015 and Carrington achieved positive operating income at the institutional level.

Carrington recently launched a hybrid, onsite and online pilot within the Dental Assisting certificate program that is driving strong student outcomes and also began enrolling students for the new fully online Medical Billing and Coding and Medical Administrative Assistant programs.

International and Professional Education Segment

In the fourth quarter, segment revenue increased 15.5 percent to $83.3 million compared to the prior year driven by three strategic acquisitions, which included Faculdade Martha Falcão (FMF), Faculdade Ideal (Faci), and Damásio Educacional. Segment operating income in the fourth quarter, excluding special items, decreased to $18.8 million versus $20.5 million in the previous year, as a result of the impact of foreign currency in Brazil and increased growth investments in Brazil. For fiscal 2015, revenue increased 13.5 percent to $258.8 million, while segment operating income, excluding special items, decreased $4.2 million to $38.6 million versus prior year.

Becker Professional Education

During the quarter, revenue increased 3.1 percent, driven by strong enrollments at Becker CPA Review. In fiscal 2015, Becker served more than 58,000 students.

Becker recently announced that 53 of the 59 2014 Elijah Watt Sells Award recipients prepared with Becker's CPA Exam Review. Since the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) began naming award recipients in 2005, over 90 percent of the winners have prepared for the exam with Becker's CPA Exam Review.

DeVry Brasil

Revenue in the quarter grew 24.3 percent over the previous year. Revenue for the full year grew 26.9 percent. The increase at DeVry Brasil was driven both by the acquisitions of FMF, Faci and Damásio, as well as organic growth.

Business, Technology, and Management Segment

DeVry University

For the fourth quarter, segment revenue of $176.4 million decreased 18.3 percent compared to the prior year. The segment recorded an operating loss of $1.9 million during the seasonally weak quarter, excluding special items. The loss reflects an increase in marketing spending versus the prior year to support the transformation strategy. For fiscal 2015, revenue decreased 14.6 percent to $794.2 million, and the segment reported operating income of $14.9 million, excluding special items. For the May session, new undergraduate enrollments decreased 13.0 percent to 3,817 compared to 4,388 the previous year.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information and Supplemental Reconciliation Schedule

During the three and twelve months ended June 30, 2015, DeVry Group recorded restructuring charges related to workforce reductions and real estate consolidations at DeVry University, workforce reductions at Becker Professional Education, and real estate consolidations at Chamberlain College of Nursing and Carrington College to align its cost structure with enrollments. DeVry University is reported in the Business, Technology and Management segment; Becker Professional Education is reported in the International and Professional Education segment; and both Chamberlain College of Nursing and Carrington College are reported in the Medical and Healthcare segment. DeVry Group also recorded and asset impairment charge at Becker Professional Education related to the write-off of intangible assets at Becker Europe. During the three and twelve months ended June 30, 2014, DeVry Group recorded restructuring charges primarily related to workforce reductions and real estate consolidations at DeVry University, Carrington College and the DeVry Group home office in order to align its cost structure with enrollments. DeVry Group recorded a gain from the sale of a former DeVry University campus in Decatur, Georgia, during fiscal year 2014. The following table illustrates the effects of restructuring charges and gain on the sale of assets on DeVry Group's operating income. Management believes that the non-GAAP disclosure of operating income excluding these special items provides investors with useful supplemental information regarding the underlying business trends and performance of DeVry Group's ongoing operations and is useful for period-over-period comparisons of such operations given the special nature of the restructuring charges and gain on the sale of assets. DeVry Group uses these supplemental financial measures internally in its management and budgeting process. However, these non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as a substitute for, DeVry Group's reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP. The following table reconciles these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP information (in thousands):

During the three and twelve months ended June 30, 2015, DeVry Group recorded restructuring charges related to workforce reductions and real estate consolidations at DeVry University which is part of the Business, Technology and Management segment, Becker Professional Education which is part of the International and Professional Education segment and the DeVry Group home office and real estate consolidations at Chamberlain College of Nursing and Carrington College which are part of the Medical and Healthcare segment in order to align its cost structure with enrollments. DeVry Group also recorded and asset impairment charge at Becker Professional Education related to the write-off of intangible assets at Becker Europe. During the three and twelve months ended June 30, 2014, DeVry Group recorded restructuring charges primarily related to workforce reductions and real estate consolidations at DeVry University, Carrington College and the DeVry Group home office in order to align its cost structure with enrollments. DeVry Group recorded a gain from the sale of a former DeVry University campus in Decatur, Georgia, during fiscal year 2014. The following table illustrates the effects of restructuring charges and gain on the sale of assets on DeVry Group's operating income. Management believes that the non-GAAP disclosure of operating income excluding these special items provides investors with useful supplemental information regarding the underlying business trends and performance of DeVry Group's ongoing operations and is useful for period-over-period comparisons of such operations given the special nature of the restructuring charges and gain on the sale of assets. DeVry Group uses these supplemental financial measures internally in its management and budgeting process. However, these non-GAAP financial measures should be viewed in addition to, and not as a substitute for, DeVry Group's reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP. The following table reconciles these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP information (in thousands):
