"Attending this college was a complete mistake. And it is one of the worse colleges I've experienced as an online student. This college is "money hungry". Also, my student service counselor told me that my official transcripts and diploma would cost me $150.00, I'm thinking like what. When I attended my other college, I never had to pay $150.00 for no official transcripts or diploma. I've should've had did more research on this college before applying. I'm having a lot of bumps in the road with GCU, and I'm an online student. When I explain to my instructors about me being ill last month, they haven't reply back to me, and didn't seem to care if I was ill. Therefore, my instructors were only worrying about me handing in my assignments on time. When I discussed to my instructor based on children and teens in African American culture are facing mental health, my instructor was very nasty about my DQ statement. Also, I had different student services counselors without being noticed. No phone call or email. It takes three weeks for my instructors to grade my assignments. Also, it takes a month for my student service counselor to get back to me. The instructors aren't helpful or supportive whatsoever, if I have an issue about an instructor they will win, and won't be on my side if a situation goes down. Also, most of the instructors I've had will doubt my intelligences if I wasn't nothing. This University is way too problematic, the student service counselors are disorganized, rude, and disrespectful. I've never experienced anything like that when I was attending another college in my city. PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THIS UNIVERSITY. SAVE YOUR MONEY AND ATTEND A TRAINING PROGRAM."

"I'm currently attending GCU as a student enrolled in the Bachelor of Science in Behavioral Health Science program. So far, my experience has been amazing! My university counselor was extremely helpful when I was applying for GCU. He walked me through the process step-by-step and answered all of my questions quickly and efficiently. My academic advisor is also amazing! She handles all of my financial documents, and ensures that I am on track for my upcoming courses. The online program itself is great. It gives me the ability to work on school whenever and wherever I want because it's online. In addition to this, the workload is the perfect amount! It's challenging and definitely requires time, but I still have plenty of time for my job, hobbies, and social life. Finally, I am actually learning a lot. The program curriculum is very detailed and GCU provides so many different student resources to help you learn including the Student Success Center and the library. I hope you look past all these negative reviews (most of them are really old or have to do with money issues) and choose GCU! I'm seriously so proud and excited to be a student here! Go Lopes!"

"I wouldn't recommend this school to any working adult that have responsibility or a family. The school is not flexible and doesn't fit around my schedule. With a total of ten posts due at the end of the week along with my other assignments it was easier when I took classes full time at my other university. I wish I would've known that before trying this school. I'm now at a better school that works with my schedule alot better. The instructor wasn't really friendly at all. The staff however was nice but don't really feel like they helped me much at all. I had a much better experience at Southern New Hampshire University program. I wanted to try the one class full time degree program but its not worth it the textbook fees and the cost of this school is a big rip-off in my opinion, it's very overpriced. I'm just glad I got out before it was too late."

"Don't attend this school. This school accepts anybody and everybody. Quality of education is really poor. Most students that are successful are self learners that have the money to pay for an expensive school simply for a degree. If all you want is a degree and have the money, this is the school for you. If you actually want to learn something, apply elsewhere."

"Awful! Out of the years worth of online schooling I did, there were two teachers that were even decent instructors. My student services counselor was a joke! I clearly stated for 6 weeks straight that I had serious personal problems going on that were extremely important and needed my attention, what did she and the instructor do? NOTHING! I was to the point of being so stressed out I emailed my counselor informing her of my desire to commit suicide before FINALLY being allowed to take leave of absence! Upon returning after my LOA, I encountered technical difficulty after technical difficulty on top of literary being severely ill every other week. What did my instructor do? Close my assignment drop-box and give me a 0%! Im a 4.0 student! Who also kept him up to date on EVERYTHING!! I found out two days ago about the assignment drop-box which was the straw that broke the camels back. Got online, applied to Kansas University, and sent GCU an email requesting my transcripts immediately be sent to KU. Im SO DONE with this awful school!!"
