GCU's Masters Degree programs do not instill learning but rather instill arduous, meaningless busy work to try and change your learning style to match theirs. Every single class structure is the same... (2 discussion board posts with 3 replies to each discussion board that MUST be posted at least one day apart as well as one paper a week.... EVERY week) It reminds me of past elementary schools that educated students to become factory workers with their one way or the highway approach. The courses... Read More

If you are not a self-starter and not stay in contact with your advisor. You will be just a number if you fail to communicate. You as a student are paying for it, you have to build a relationship with GCU staff to communicate, it is like this any where else. Those who claim that they know of no one has completed a degree program, well I have. I have completed a Bachelors, and two Master's degrees, because I was self-motivated, did not make excuses as to what went wrong. Of course I some issues at... Read More

I read some rough reviews for this school before I started and thought, "the staff can't be that bad." Well I should have listened. They are terrible at their job. They don't actually teach, they just grade things. And the advisors leave out all the pivotal information that is needed for you to start teaching. You only find out once they told you that you missed a deadline by a month...which they never actually told you there was a deadline, or a process. This school is a total joke. PLEASE attend...

Good School! Very responsive instructors and advisors that help students accomplish their academic goals. Like all academic institutions students must communicate with instructors and advisors effectively. That eliminate 90% of the problems most students are complaining about. My experience has been very good thus far.

I choose GCU to obtain my graduate degree because of its Christian heritage and values. Majority of the online instructors are very knowledgeable, supportive, and very responsive to the needs of online students. As in any education endeavor, one must be invested and have realistic expectations. All my expectations were met. I also attended the graduation ceremony and had the opportunity to tour the campus. I did not use the financial resources offered by the school, and therefore, I cannot make any... Read More

The teacher say they don't get your work when you have proof of it being submitted. The teacher do not communicate with students. They only want your money. . The system they use if full of errors, not mobile. Read the complaints on the BBB website.

I begin my career at GCU in August 2009. Everything started out pretty good no main complaints and no issues. It wasn't until I had a death in the family (my father) that I first started to notice that there was an issue. When my father died, my grades suffered but I was still in great academic standing. My Student Services Adviser SSA was out on maternity leave and her substitute called me and told me that "she didn't think I would be able to graduate on time because my GPA is not where she would...

Do not waste your time with this university! I have spent 10 years studying online with various universities and this is by far the WORST! I was a 4.0 student when I started and had no real issues till it was time to start my practicum hours. Instructors are not on the same page when it comes to grading practicum paperwork nor is the university willing to work with you if any family emergencies or issues arise. I feel that they are all about the money as I have wasted $40K and have nothing - no degree... Read More

I am very frustrated with GCU. There is NO support at all. The instructors take a lot time to answer your questions, and sometimes do not answer it before the deadline to post your assignments. The loudcloud is very weak. It doesn't have a spelling check, and the font is very small that you even can see your mistakes. It is just a busy work. I did not learn anything answering discussion questions and posting brochures and power points. The advisors are really unprofessional. They do not give you... Read More

I am enrolled in a cohort with a group of women that I know well. There have been some issues as I am sure many students have and GCU has been involved in rectifying the issues. The Tempe campus however, feels much more distant than it should. I do not feel a part of the GCU community.The campus staff has not made students feel apart of GCU. It is quite expensive and I loved the idea of being an alumni, I just wish they would do more for the students off campus.To give you an idea of what I mean,... Read More
