"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."

"Great University... I am a current student engaged in an online counseling program. I learned much from good well experienced instructors and actually had fun in the process. I have recommended this school to many of my military associates who have struggled trying to attend school in an atmosphere that is not conducive to the traditional college experience. What many of us have found is that GCU is very military friendly. I look forward to graduating very soon. Proud to soon be GCU Alumni and GCU Alpha Chi chapter."

"Once they have your money, it seems that they don't care. Some of the instructors can be brutal if you challenge their opinions, others simply don't care. They information is repetitive and very basic as well. Don't let the "Christian" background fool you."

"The campus is lovely, the teachers I have had the pleasure of working with are absolutely AMAZING! If I do have a complaint is the frustration in dealing with the academic advisors and financial aid. My academic advisors have been changed a few times and I never got an e-mail letting me know of the change. Financial aid could be clearer as it is confusing."
