Degree: Psychology, General
Graduation Year: 2018

Grand Canyon University is a growing community and an exciting place to receive an education. They have a good balance between fun community-building events and serious scholarship. The psychology program does not have many research opportunities; however, the teachers are incredibly supportive and if you are willing to ask they are more than happy to help you find research opportunities in the community.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2019

All I can say is GCU s****. Avoid it at all costs. Talk to prior students, and above all, avoid Professor M. She doesn't know the policies of GCU and can't handle any confrontation without becoming abusive. When reported, the college does nothing. There's a lot more to the story too! The Internet is a wonderful thing...

Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2019

If you are reading this before applying to the GCU doctoral college, stop and choose a different University a doctorate! You will bleed time and money and question the selling of a "Private Christian University" The classes were not easy, as expected, it is a doctoral program. Residencies are required and the student is told "The work done at residency streamlines things once you start the dissertation courses." What a lie! You can attend both week-long residencies, at over $1000 each, and still be told in your 1st dissertation class, "Start over!". Once in the dissertation phase, you will get lots of subjective feedback from your "committee" and reminded that "Committee gets 10 business days to respond to communication." Waiting 2 weeks to get feedback on changes made to a handful of sentences in a 200 page document, all while paying for this time, will leave you feeling like a sucker even if you graduate. I even watch people who worked for the University quit the program midway!

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

I was an on campus student. Best experience of my life and I actually had mixed emotions about graduating because I enjoyed it so much. Great Christian environment and numerous opportunities to be very social and have fun. Very positive vibe. Fantastic campus with pools and gyms and sporting events so their is a lot to do. All my friends who went their really liked the school and I made some life long friends. My counselor set out my classes required to graduate so I was able to clearly understand what was needed so I graduated in 4 years and got a great job when I graduated. Dorms are all pretty much new. I dont understand all the negative comments about the money. GCU told me the yearly cost up front and it never changed. The cost is also very reasonable compared to other 4 year colleges. I guarantee in a few years GCU will be a highly visible well known school across the country as their academic are great and their D1 sports teams are also up and coming.

As a Student Veteran, Grand Canyon University didn't provide the services to the veteran population as good as other schools. They are all about the moneys veterans bring to the school. They also treat the Army ROTC program the same way with limited space

Degree: Mental Health Counseling/Counselor
Graduation Year: 2019

These people are crooks. I ahd to take a year off, with just an externship to finish. Yesterday, they tell me that my degree requirements have changed, and that I will need to take an additional SEVENTEEN classes, and that I'll need to take out at least $20,000 in additional loans to cover it....and gee, they offer excellent Masters degrees after I'm done. I'm walking away from wasted $50,000 and feel sick. Do not make the same mistake I did. All these people care about is your money, period.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 1999

I signed up for GCU and withdrew from classes. They took loan money out front the department of education to pay for it. However they lied to me about the amount they took. Then since I withdrew from the classes they should have returned the money because I never attended. But they did not and now the department of education is coming after me for more money! GCUl is s******* me over in several ways! They say I did not withdraw on time so they can charge me I say no I wanted to withdraw but your school would not process the withdraw in time and forced me on a HOLD STATUS for years UNTIL THE FINALLY TOOK MY "NO I WILL NOT COME BACK TO THIS SCHOOL" STATEMENT AND WITHDREW ME, SO I WAS WITHDRAWN AFTER DEADLINE BECAUSE THEY FORCED ME TOO! I am filing a complaint with the department of education today! DO NOT GO HERE THEY WILL STEAL MONEY FROM YOU AND S**** YOUR CREDIT UP FOR LIFE!
