Please read this heed my advice
January 12, 2012
As a recent graduate and former employee for over 3 years I suggest you consider looking at other options...the campus is run as a Christian Univ but online is far from it. The compelling motivation is money, bottom line, profits for their investors and succeed at all costs. This Univ is not authentic. The employees are a good group but the management team comes from other online for profit schools and almost all of them ... [Read more]

Well Balanced and Growing
August 8, 2012
In reading many of the reviews posted here it becomes obvious the ones that were primarily motivated by issues with receiving financial aid. I have not had any issues in that respect so I write this review unbiased by that. In my experience I have really enjoyed the majority of my classes. I am a graduate student in the MS Psychology I/O program and I am about seven courses into it. Thus far my classes ... [Read more]

I do not see where some of you guys are coming from. No school is profect and they will never be perfect. I had no bad experience with them. It seems as some of you are complaining because of finanical aid and it sounds as though some of you are just here for the money instead getting knowledge to better yourself in order to get a better job. All of the people who I've worked ... [Read more]

The Good and the Bad (From a Pre-med student)
February 20, 2012
Hello, I'll be graduating this December with my Bachelor's in Biology: Pre-med, ground student, so I thought I'd give my review for other students considering it. Expense: Yes, it's expensive. They do offer scholarships, but even with my Presidential Scholarship for high GPA ,my full pell grant, and a travel grant for living off campus, I still require about $2,000 in student loans per semester for tuition costs. But it's a private university. Expect to ... [Read more]

Grand Canyon University's online MBA program is a good choice for busy adults. I find the coursework challenging, and have learned a great deal over the past six months I have been in the program. I have never had a problem with my counselors, either before enrollment or as a student. The teachers have made themselves available and are quick to respond to my needs. I see plenty of lukewarm comments about the school. I ... [Read more]

RUN AWAY AS FASTV AS YOU CAN!!
January 10, 2012
If I could rate it a ZERO star I would. These people are frauds. We paid cash for the tuition. The university took a Sallie Mae loan for $7000.00 and refuses to correct the situation. VERY POOR support from financial. We can't even get a receipt for reimbursement. Poor support. A student got very sick and was assured she would be allowed to submit her work, which was complete. They then issued an F and ... [Read more]

Criminal Justice MS
August 16, 2012
My overall experience was good. I read some of the horror stories, but did not have a problem with the program. I work full time, a veteran, and still in the Reserves. This online program is one that you MUST discipline yourself to meet deadlines. As with any program, you get out what you put into a program. [Read more]
