"This school lets you enroll with an agreed program and then adds classes without students knowledge, then lies to you about how and why. They claim to be a Christian University though they do not act that way. I highly recommend you to look at other schools that offer better programs and would act more ethically then GCU's staff do."

"Do not waste your time here!!!! Far better, cheaper, well-run colleges are out there!!!! This place will take your money in a minute, promise you the moon, then ignore you when you have problems. They have a team of people than monitor these review sites, just to make it look like there actually care!!! Dig deep before you waste your money!!!!!"

"GCU is a good (online) school for those who can't take time to attend a campus. I received my teacher cert after graduation. They don't, however, do a good job preparing for real-world teaching experience. Enough material to get by, lacking in the everyday school experience."

"I attend GCU and I have to say, I love it!!! I had previously went to The University of Phoenix and had nothing but trouble with everything and still managed to keep good grades. GCU is wonderful. Great enrollment counselor. When I first called about information for enrolling, he told me all the facts, all the pro's and con's of choosing this school and about my degree choice. He was extremely honest and sincerely wanted to help me choose the correct path for my future, even if it wasn't GCU. He wasn't trying to "sell" me. After enrolling, it has been nothing short of a pleasure dealing with the financial adviser and the whole financial aspect.There are many grants for my degree type and my financial adviser helped me get as much assistance as I could.I will hardly have to take out ANY student loans unless I need $ for a new computer or something. She was in constant contact making sure I got all paperwork filled out, ect.. My enrollment adviser contacts me often just to "check in" and he genuinely wants me to succeed. The first class is somewhat boring because it is just in an informative class about navigating loud cloud and learning about online school. Since this was my second online college, I pretty much knew everything pertaining to that already. The courses are VERY informative and I took a lot away from each one. The instructors are amazing and I even received occasional calls from them to see how I am doing. That is wonderful when in an online college because I don’t feel like just a name on the computer. Only negative I find is that some of the discussion questions/assignments are (in my opinion) so easy that they are hard. If that makes any sense. I second guess myself because I think, this is too easy. It can’t be right. As a student who has been to other online universities, I whole heartedly would recommend GCU to anyone. Especially if your after a degree in education. This college knows just what you need, helps with licensure, and even helps to get you into a local school to get the beloved student teaching completed. Which is required in order to get your teaching license. I love GCU. Take the good with the bad, people. Nobody is going to like everything. You need to be very focused, hard working, and have a lot of drive and motivation. You need to put the work in because this school will not pussy foot you or give you handouts. And to the people who are posting bad comments, Its college, you need to put on your big girl panties and take responsibility for your actions or lack there of."
