Excellent professors. A challenging program. The program requires 20 hours per week and its on spot. I have not went through dissertation yet but I'm positive. Good online structure. Very good learning environment. Couple frustrations w different teaching methods but expected in learning environment

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2017

I was really hesitant to start an online program to obtain my bachelors degree. Now, I am beyond happy with how much new knowledge I have gained and I plan to pursue my M.Ed. through GCU as well. My advisor and supervisor were always available when I had a question.

Degree: Health and Wellness, General
Graduation Year: 2015

I did like attending Grand Canyon University, however, getting my second degree has been a nightmare. The student services counselor is not knowledgeable about process and procedures and they really screwed up my schedule. My schedule was incorrect from the beginning and I was told that I needed to take three weeks off of school due to the class not being available. Then I was told to submit a leave of absence, which was done, but what I was not told is that in order to re-enter on my first day after the leave of absence, I needed to post on the first day. Today I spent over three hours posting and doing my discussion post only to log in again and find that I had been dropped from the class and all my work lost. I am doing my online classes because it seemed to be convenient and easy for me, however, this process has been terrible and very disappointing. There was no follow up prior to re-entering the next class and I was not told that I needed to post on the first day or I would be dropped from the course.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

What a terrible experience, this place is by far the worst fraud currently being perpetrated on the American Students. Faculty are mean and uncaring across the board, and few are trained in the subjects they are actually teaching. Administration only care about keeping you enrolled in classes and paying tuition. At one point I was actually attacked verbally by my student services advisor Daryl Snow, in an email format. During the email he claimed I was an ignorant f!@#.

Degree: MBA in Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

The master's program I chose fits well with my career path. I am challenged by the courses as long as you are on top of the course work you are given ample time to complete the assignments. Financial aid was easy to work with. Student web page is easy to navigate.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

Scam fraudulent school. The degree they gave out are not accepted at most work places. They financial department is a joke. Instructors are all uneducated and clueless about the subjects they teach. You are better off looking for other legitimate colleges around Arizona. Let this be a warning before you try to attend.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

Very disorganized. Found out I made the Presidents list...two months after I graduated on cheap copy paper I can't even frame. Got put on probation for posting a paper I wrote from a previous degree at another college saying I was promoting plagiarism. The instructors are hit or miss, my last one set everyone into groups for a group project that didn't exist and wouldn't answer questions and kept talking about deliverables and keeping it simple. Will not be going there for my MSN or recommending it to anyone else! Beware!

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.
