I took one class here and I am transferring. I am a very busy student and I was focused on getting my BA and teaching certification online, not easy to find. I had a great time with my advisor, finding the best path for me. He was great with communication and found me the fastest way to get what I needed out of my education. The first class is a mandatory university class, pointless. The second class, also mandatory, Christian Worldview. No one everrrrr said this was a Christian school until I saw... Read More

Absolute garbage. GCU is a total scam. The education they offer is worhtless. They treat teachers and students beneath contempt. All they care about is shoving their sick religious ideas down your throat and cashing your checks. Go to another school. Any other school. Dig ditches. Don't go here.

I was excited to start online classes. When my grandpa got ill and passed away they would not approve enough time off. I got charged for a class I did not take. But today I got an email from them saying they would forgive the money of I came back before Feb 28th. I responded with a few concerns. The response I got was to ignore the email I got because they would not honor it. They did not even address my concerns. They truly only care about money.

Attending Grand Canyon University has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience. I started taking classes with GCU as they visited my work. I had a great experience with a very patient recruiter and have found the staff genuinely try their best to help. There are times when it takes a bit for the left hand to understand the right hand's intent, but in general, everyone is sincere in their effort to make the experience successful. I had to take a break in my studies to move and followed my advisor's... Read More

Grand Canyon U was convenient because I needed to work fill-time while I went to school. The professors were quality and helpful. So were the other staff that helped me achieve my goals. The classes taught me what I needed to know to become an educator. The observation hours helped me see the strategies in action. Great program.

I want to be proud to say I went to GCU and for everyone to say, Wow, that is a good school, and that online education is as good as classroom instruction or perhaps better! The world is not a perfect place, neither are people, nor the organizations that they put together. Although we are making life more complex than it needs to be, there is no excuse why we cannot be more concern with each other. I think we should "all" try to ~ be the change you want to see in the world~ Gandhi. Nevertheless,... Read More

My experience at first was great and it went declining. However, GCU technical support is outstanding. They are all about assisting the students with whatever is needed and at times they go above and beyond expectations. I wish the standard were equable throughout the school. Very few are engaged in providing quality service. By the way, I took a teaching accredited diploma from the United Kingdom a few months ago, and to my surprise, I learned so much more than at GCU. What a pitty.

I choose GCU because they not only offered a duel degree in education but I was also able toget the Teach grant. This grant is very important to me as I need as much loan fogivness as possible. My academic advisor is amazing, the teachers have beed great . I have learn so much. I am starting my internship next week. Supper excited. I WOULD RECOMEND GCU.

Veterans please stay away this school is up to no good. No leadership, online school is a joke, this school needs improvement. I found out that GCU monitors social media such as facebook and will expell students if they are not of Christian faith. I came to GCU because I was led to believe that I didn't have to be of Christian faith to attend, however this is false information don't believe in the lies and empty promises this school will serve up. Other highlights of my time spent at GCU involves... Read More

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.

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... Read More
