Grand Canyon University Reviews - Master's in Early Childhood EducationSee reviews of all programs at Grand Canyon University
I would NEVER recommend this college if you are doing this online and you do not have a broadband service! They recently switched the system for online classes and without broadband it will not load! Living in a small area I am one of the lucky ones that struggles to upload homework or see grades. Most of the time I have to travel elsewhere to submit documents which defeats the purpose of it.
I have had a wonderful experience thus far at Grand Canyon University. My advisers have always been available to help me with any questions or concerns I have had in a timely manner. The teachers I have had in my program have been very knowledgeable in their subject area and I have learned so much! I would highly recommend this school to anyone.
Ok, so here is my honest opinion. I received my undergrad from Montclair State University. 20 yrs later I decided to change careers and needed to go back to school. I chose GCU and have never been happier. T.K., truly a gem and the reason I chose GCU over other online schools. She has been the most transparent person I have ever met. She was honest and help ease my anxiety over online schools. She stayed is constant contact with me aND always willing to help. I truly miss her as she no longer works for GCU. If u r considering going back to school, GCU is a fine choice and your champion for success!!!
My experience at GCU have been amazing. My counselors were very supportive through out my program and the professor were always available. As an online student i felt like i had to be my own administrator at times. Although my counselors were helpful I made sure i knew when i needed to do my tests and turn in certain paperwork. For example I was very proactive when it came to my observation hours. Their are times i had to find the school myself especially during the summer when schools were out. Basically you have to ask a lot of questions to make sure everything go as plan. This is especially important for student teaching and other internships. Overall I would not change my experience at gcu for the world. Go Lopes!
As an older student, (50), I have found GCU to be exactly what I have needed. I just finished my 5th graduate class in Early Childhood Education, with the online program. I have heard from GCU every week since starting. I have had every question answered. My financial aid has been on time and effortless. GCU was referred to me by a friend who just completed the Nursing program online. She LOVED the program and I will forever be grateful she shared her experience with me. If you are expecting to be hand held or pampered, then you will probably be disappointed with any school.
