Grand Canyon University Reviews

267 reviews
I recently joined the Lope family as a graduate student. Currently, I am pursuing a master's degree in Education Administration. I hope to someday impact the lives of as many students as possible in the role of administrator through sports or campus. Thus far, I have enjoyed my online experience at GCU. The professors are very knowledgeable and willing to assist. The counselors and other professionals are extremely helpful and willing to go the extra mile to remedy the problem or concern. It took me a few weeks to become acclimated to the online community, but with tech help and patience success has been the outcome. I would recommend GCU to any and everyone! It is a great school to learn and grow.

I went to Grand Canyon University for a large part of my undergrad. I am currently still at GCU for the Masters of Accountancy program. I have always attended GCU as an online student. I have been extremely impressed with all of my professors and with my counselors. I never feel alone in this process because my counselors call and check in on me. All of my professors have been extremely helpful, whether it be through phone calls, discussion forums or emails/texting. I would definitely recommend GCU! I have learned a lot and thankfully it has helped me to land several successful positions in my career already.
I accomplished a great deal while attending this fully online doctoral program. Unfortunately there were many challenges; a committee that was not responsive, a chair that was supportive but a methodologist who was not; and often communication was lost in the shuffle of academia. I did learn a lot, and would encourage any who attend to spend time getting to know the resources. You really are on your own for that!
