Degree: Educational Leadership

I recently graduated (August of 2020). In reviewing this program, I would tell you - it is not easy to graduate. GCU is not a perfect place. However, I made it and I learned from the academic struggle. I have always found school to be easy, this was not. If you are seriously dedicated to a degree, you will be able to get through. It is not a 3 and 1/2 year program (unless you actually work at the school and have contacts to help you navigate). I graduated in 5 years, and I can honestly look back... Read More

Although my residency professors Jennifer Waldschmidt and Troy Roland were good, but not grading the late prospectus that I spent weeks working on was very hurtful to me on so many levels. The appeal committee did not support me at all. In spite of my numerous attempts of explaining to them how this will impact me financially, and put a burden on my family as a single mom, they did not help me at all.

GCU was the worst experience I have ever had. Do your homework and beware of this program. I have my doctorate and could not be more disgusted in my experience. A rotten, dishonest, flawed organization to say the least. The most frustrating part is the program could be absolutely wonderful, but they do not listen.

My only concern is the financial aid process. There is no financial aid office that you deal with. Your academic advisor does it which causes problems. Overall the school is great. I love the campus. The online degree program has been a good experience.

Very unhappy but so close to finishing

Degree: Educational Leadership

At first everything was fine until I was almost finished.The program I am in is supposed to last only 3 years but it is not true. I have no real assistance and was told maybe I need to leave the program. I should get all of my money back. Now it is nothing but heartache because the professors try to find the smallest thing wrong. Yet I am in the proposal stage. The superintendents and principals I was in class with have all finished. From hearing from other teachers in school we have found only individuals... Read More

I am at the end of my degree, working on my dissertation, and I have to say I love the experience that I have had at GCU. The instructors are outstanding and very caring. They challenge you to do your best and the universities rigorous program has taught me so much. I would highly recommend GCU!
