I am in the process of applying to this academic institution and I am very alarmed. My admissions rep entered my name incorrectly (hyphenated as I was married). My FAFSA has my legal name and she tried to backstep and has asked me to text her (on a private cell that does not come up at GCU at all...this is a private number) a photo of my Drivers License, my marriage license, my passport and my Social Security card...(the last 4 digits were acceptable). All of this to just apply (not financial aid,... Read More

What I loved most about this university, especially being an online student, is how dedicated those at GCU were to making sure I succeeded. Of course, it was up to me to pass the courses. My advisor, counselor, and professors made sure I was on the track and was challenged. With a lot of hard work, I was able to obtain a 4.0 GPA. Being an online out-of-state student, I had to make sure I was meeting my state's requirements for certification. While GCU provided an excellent education, I simply needed... Read More

I would like to say that my experience so far has been great. This is my second year and as promised the professors have been knowledgeable, the courses are also what I expected. The only thing that I did not like was my past counselor, she didn't help me the way she should of, other than that my ride has been wonderful. I highly recommend this university to anyone. Some people may complain per their experience and it is understandable, but the university has a good reputation. Do your research before... Read More

I loved it! The professors there were helpful, professional, and well-educated. I did my schooling online, but loved how I still had due dates and deadlines to meet. I definitely recommend at least checking out the campus and the degrees that they offer.

The couselors are lazy and are more like cheerleaders then couselors. They are not much help but they charge a lot for tuition. Sarah Divers andBecky Goesman are horrible couselors. The school wont let you havetime off they disenroll you after 2 weeks of taking a break. They will not place you practicums like every other university. They always say dont you wand your choice where you learn? I would rather have them place me then not getting placement and making a 100 in a class then fail because... Read More

Ok..... so I keep seeing all of these negative reviews and its driving me crazy. I have attended GCU since 2011 and there have been some ups and downs, but that is with any school in the country. I have started my last class before student teaching, and being on the down hill part of my degree, it is not a walk in the park. You have to sacrifice alot, your personal time, family, and alot of sleep but its worth it. I may have to retake a class to get my GPA up, but that is my fault not the schools,... Read More

GCU was the first offer degree's other than IT, Business or Public management. Their course offerings are broad. This is what attracted me to them as I am a mid-forties non-traditional student with credit hours spread from Egypt to Tennessee. Their evaluation process is next to none I have experienced and the courses are good if you understand that online course work is self-motivational. The negatives are price and structure. Where they are extremely accommodating they are plagued by their format,... Read More

I researched a number of online schools before starting at Grand Canyon University. I needed to attend school online because I knew I would be moving before I finished my degree and I did not want to have to start over with transferring credit again. I was concerned during my first few classes because of the poor communication skills displayed by some of my fellow students and because of the profession I had for my Christian Woldview Class but, as I progressed to more degree specific classes, I found...

I am a GCU student and this school has changed my life for the good. GCU has great teachers, caring academic teams, and I will be getting my masters from this great school, also. I feel like I have my own personal cheerleading team helping and encouraging me along my journey.

Any student has to take responsibility for their own academics and work hard to achieve those goals. if the student is not ready to work then don't enroll. i look forward to hanging my GCU diploma in my classroom. Go 'Lopes.... Read More
