I honestly have no complaints. You get what you put into the program . I’m currently working full time at my local health department and I have manage to complete two courses at a time . Time management is crucial to your success in the program. This program has gone into depth about concepts that my undergrad school briefly went over . It definitely is a substitution for a credentials program and at the end you will have earned a masters . I started the program August 2020 and will begin student... Read More

For the past 11 years since earning my Bachelor's degree, I had been on a slow, reluctant search for a graduate program. I am wanted the advance degree but I also knew it would place a financial and daily demand on a schedule that had been free of course work for a decade. Not to mention, I wasn't much if a tech type of person so online courses were not even seriously considered. It all changed when the most caring, no nonsense Grand Canyon University representative visited my school recruiting,... Read More

The good Lord sent me to the right place. I was looking for a school that would help me get the degree I needed, so I could teach. I have learn so much already and still have more to learn. I have always gotten the help and support I needed from everyone I have to deal with.

I have finished all core classes, now I just have to finish internship. I have a favorable impression of GCU. My only complaint are the other students. Some are lazy and submit subpar work. This makes everyone look bad. I have found most professors to be excellent. Most have a PhD/EdD and truly care. I did drop one class because of poor instruction, but that was the only class I have had an issue with. I have put forth my best efforts and have found this to be a rewarding experience. Be prepared... Read More

I feel this Master's Degree in ELED sets you up to fail. If you work a full time job, do not enroll in this program- you will not be able to meet the requirements necessary to succeed. I work a full time job, 50+ hours a week and I am enrolled as a full-time online student. To me, the purpose of online schooling is to allow students to work AND get a higher degree at the same time. This program is designed in a way that 10-20 hours of observation are required in EACH CLASS, let alone student teaching,... Read More

I do highly recommend this school- it's supposedly one of the best online programs and for me, this was the only way I could obtain a Master's Degree. However, I am not huge fan of all of the teachers- they often take a long time to respond to questions and give feedback, which is very frustrating and stressful. I also highly do not appreciate the fact that online students only get a winter break. As an online student it's kind of offensive- as if we don't work as hard or don't "deserve" a break....

If you need an honest answer on whether or not to attend this school- DONT! They're supportive until you're accepted, and then all help goes right out the window. Not only was the "application process" a joke, but it's clear they allow anyone who qualified for financial aid in. They're not concerned with quality students, it's all financial for them. The professors are a joke, they do not respond to questions, the advisors are even worse. They call you constantly to check in, but when a real problem... Read More

I have been in this online program for about three months now and I recommend it to anyone! I am in the Elementary Education program going towards my Masters and teaching certification. First of all, my advisor was very nice and helpful without being pushy, and was a big reason I came to GCU. I was going to attend WGU because it was cheaper, but glad I made the change to GCU. The professors are great, they are very fair with grading and always appreciate the hard work you put in. They give timely... Read More
