I cannot speak to GCU as in-person since I attend online, but I will say that the online program is a joke at best. Basically you fork out roughly $2 grand for a textbook. You are lucky if you find a professor who actually cares about your education and future success: most of them are just collecting a paycheck. When you get into your actual course of study after taking unneeded classes (Christian Worldview and an online introductory course) you will find a lack of communication and actual teaching....

I Just recently transferred to this school and it is horrible so far. The classes are fine, however trying to receive my left over funds from my student loans is another story. You are not allowed to talk to anyone in the financial department, you have to communicate with a liaison. who by the way is just reading / typing a response from a pre-written response. Of course the college has taken their payment already, but suddenly it may take weeks to process my portion. "Christian" school I think not.... Read More

Well, for 34,000 in student loan debt at a 4.25% interest rate ($4.00 bucks a day) did help get me a job at 47k annual plus benefits; but, honestly, I could have always faked the transcripts and just said I went to school there, watched some YouTube videos on basic and intermediate accounting, and would have wound up basically at the same place I am now..just without the 34k of debt. My advice to you is go to a cheaper college, self fund college, or just don't go at all. I was an online student and... Read More

I chose GCU because they offer an accounting degree 100% online, have a good reputation (at least that I am aware of), and because they have an accelerated program. I liked that I could take one class at a time for 8 weeks each, I felt that it was easier to focus on one at a time because I am a working mom with two young children. I find the curriculum to be challenging, which to me is a good thing. I tried another university before GCU online and their curriculum was way too easy, the assignments... Read More

Every online class I take has issues with the curriculum and when I report it the response is always the same "This issue has been brought to the attention of the Curriculum department and will be addressed in an upcoming revision of the course." This does not help me. They give you the opportunity to fill out a survey after each class but they obviously aren't reading them. I tell them they need to focus on quality control because of issues with the curriculum. The one class I took would quiz every... Read More
