Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

This university is a joke and the degree you get with it is worthless. Honestly. GCU is the laughing stock of college degrees and that has definitely translated into my job search. After graduating GCY with a masters degree in business (a relatively stable degree in today's job market ) I have been on a job hunt for over a year and a half. I graduated as a cum laude with a 4.0 gpa, so grades are not an issue here. The issue that has been persistent (according to employers) is that my degree is virtually useless due to the fact it's from a GCU. Granted, there are plenty of universities that fall under the same standards and outcomes that GCU does, but I am mainly speaking for how GCU is HIGHLY regarded by mainly employers as a degree generator rather than conditioning and preparing students for real line of work. Do NOT go here.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

Highly recommend. Very user friendly format and lots of support. I received both my BSN and MSN degrees from GCU. will recommend this school to anyone that's ready to get it done quick . I would go back for my PHd if I ever decide to pursue. I was an online student and referred a friend who also had a great experience.

Degree: Mental Health Counseling/Counselor
Graduation Year: 2019

These people showed up marketing at my job. Never heard of them. Not one person completed the program. Once the advisor gets you on board, you are on your own. They don't care about the quality of your work, only quantity. Don't waste your $!! Graduation rate is very poor for this financially failing college.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013

Grand Canyon was an awesome school. I always tell people when they ask me about it that I had a great experience with the staff, students and my advisor. The support you get with the staff isn't the average type of support. I could schedule with any advisor if I needed some help or needed to get something done. They call and check on you to make sure things are going well. I wish they had the program for MSW so I could go back but I will always be Lope!

Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2020

This university had the best and smoothest admissions process I have ever seen. One minute I was simply gathering information, and the next thing I knew, I was accepted and then enrolled. They wanted me there, and not just to get my money, but they believed in me. I still get calls and emails monthly from advisors just to check on my progress, and not because they have to. They are always caring and professional. The instructors have been great. They actually teach you what you need to know, instead of expecting you to already know it all. Even the professors want every student to succeed, and it is contagious to the point where even the students cheer each other on. I am learning so much and am so encouraged here.

Degree: Education, General
Graduation Year: 2017

Veterans please stay away this school is up to no good. No leadership, online school is a joke, this school needs improvement. I found out that GCU monitors social media such as facebook and will expell students if they are not of Christian faith. I came to GCU because I was led to believe that I didn't have to be of Christian faith to attend, however this is false information don't believe in the lies and empty promises this school will serve up. Other highlights of my time spent at GCU involves issues with stipend not being issued.

Degree: RN to BSN
Graduation Year: 2014

Excellent school; Great experience; I cannot speak for anyone else, but my experience was great! What I saw with others is that if they put forth the effort and completed the work as assigned then there was no issue. Only those that did not fair so well grumbled and complained. It was a tough program but I learned a lot. My advisor was great and now my friend just started her first class there and was able to get my old advisor. I now have a MSN from another college and will be returning to GCU in the Fall to begin my DNP.

Degree: Secondary Education and Teaching
Graduation Year: 1993

The enrollment process was a nightmare. And then I was bounced between two different counselors who never told me the same thing. My professor was non-existent as he felt free to access YouTube videos were an acceptable substitution for teaching. Vague directions with specific expectations. Just not a positive support network. I stayed for one class and then left as quickly as I could. They charged me nearly $2,000 without applying financial aid for a non-education with an absent professor. Sounds fair, right?

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2013

I received my BSN from Grand Canyon University through their fast track program on their Scottsdale campus. The small class sizes were amazing and allowed the professors to take interest in each student throughout the program. I believe I was adequately prepared for my nursing career after completing this program. I have and will continue to recommend students to this program.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Grand Canyon help me achieve my degree within three years. They have helped me make sure I am on track with my classes and the teachers were great. Most of my teachers helped me achieve my goals by guiding me to the right places out of education like different career opportunities and ways to pay back student loans. GCU is a great school to find your purpose and reach your fullest potential.
