Degree: Psychology, General
Graduation Year: 2017

Terrible school. Go anywhere else. The teachers are great and the small classrooms are great but that's literally it. Nothing, I repeat, nothing else about this campus is any good. The rules require all of their students to be treated like little kids, the student advisors are constantly being replaced because of how bad they are, the fines for anything as minuscule as smoking in a designated smoking area can be up to 500$ and the food options are horrid. Also, good luck transferring to another school because the credits essentially force one to stay. Unless, of course, you want to ask another 4 classes at your new university.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2017

I choose GCU because they not only offered a duel degree in education but I was also able toget the Teach grant. This grant is very important to me as I need as much loan fogivness as possible. My academic advisor is amazing, the teachers have beed great . I have learn so much. I am starting my internship next week. Supper excited. I WOULD RECOMEND GCU.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

I applied for this doctorate program. They indicated that I needed 1 stats class. I took 4 stats courses. 2 were titled stats on my transcripts. Met all requirements, the advisor indicated that my stats couldn't be counted. I even took advanced stats. They waived acceptance letter in my face and then wanted me to pay for additional stats courses. Admissions counselor wanted me to locate stats course syllabus from 20 years ago to prove that stats was stats. No way, some scam. I know peers graduating but this program has changed. Of course in addition to 42k I was going to need to buy now remedial stats courses. I told them forget it and stopping here. The application process is inhumane and abusive. Earlier in life I would have been shattered. Stay away! Also, look at higher ups at university web site. Faculty like VP of student services does not list their contacts on web site. Faculty that are open to students at most institutions are not available to students here. Try to call and speak to some of them. Receptionist will say I cannot provide those in executive team their ext. And wont transfer you either. Now looking into other opportunities.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2019

I have a great experience in GCU, but my journey so far is taking a lot my time for study and to keep my GPA high. I like my professors as they are very responsible and responsive all the time, they are always there to answer my questions regarding to my assignments. I love the fact that GCU world ranking is 758, this makes me feel that my doctoral degree is worthy. I believe that those students who left bad feedbacks about GCU were poor students and unable to pass their courses. I have never had any problems with my consuler as she is calling all the time, following up my progress, and gives so many valuable advices. All my respect GCU

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

I attended Grand Canyon University, transcripts show that I have completed everything and gotten nearly straight A's, the administration has blocked my graduation despite the fact that I have completed the parameters of the program as outlined by the admissions paper work, again with newly perfect scores. Of course in hind sight I have found that NONE of the programs offered by the graduate school are respected or accepted in my state. I learned a great deal, despite the education they didn't deliver as offered, and am left with tons of debt.

Degree: Education Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

I have had a terrible experience all around at GCU. I am a diligent student. My instructors, advisors, counselors, and evaluators can never answer my questions and are never on the same page. I think they are in a transition period but there is a major lack of communication. I feel like all of the assignments are busy work and I never receive quality feedback. I have to fight to obtain simple receipts for reimbursement purposes. Furthermore, they delayed the date of my graduation by a month without any consultation on my behalf. I am about to have my first formal evaluation which is worth 200 points and I never even received written directions or a rubric. When I asked my evaluator what type of artifacts I needed to submit, he said, "You know PowerPoints and stuff." I have attended 3 colleges and am obtaining my third degree at GCU and have never had an experience this awful.

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2019

You have to work hard. You actually need to put into work. Financial aid and school adviser are great. They have very good degree program. You can also adjust your speed to taking classes. You do not have to locked up in traditional form of study. Online course is 7 weeks program and it is short enough to concentrate and long enough to learn much of information. If you do not think this Grand Canyon University can bring you what you promised it is on you not the school. Better be ready for some challenges. These professors are hard on you and will make you work.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

In one of the dissertation course the professor, who was my assigned chair didn't respond to my assignments. After many attempts to contact him, he emailed me that I was not one of his students. He was confused on how to find his students from GCU. So all the students in his course were not getting any support. I asked for the course to be reset as the school did not provide any service. I paid for the reset and they failed me out of the program after passing all the coursework and complaining about their lack of support for the dissertation portion of the program.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2018

I should have read reviews before signing up for a class. paid so much money on books that I could have gotten free online. Sent professor 5 emails to discuss issues in the class, claimed he never received any of my emails. Counselor claimed to she called me several times and was not able to reach me. I don't like when people lie to cover themselves.
