Student & Graduate Reviews

4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

The cohort program at GCU provides valuable resources and education that relates to real-life sitations.
4.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

The major pro for me about the program is how everything in completely online. I can finish work before it's due as long as I turn them in on time and I can ask my counselor for help or clarification when needed. I have not found any cons to this program. Any con I can think of, like fast pace, is all up to the learning aptitude of the student. As of right now the pace of the class is perfect and the overall quality is very insightful.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

As my studies occur via the online venue, I have not ventured onto the physical campus setting and experienced the surrounding area as a student. My experience online has been exceptional as far as the workload, availability for tutors and professors, and the LoudCloud system used to complete studies.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

It is a great program for working adults like myself. Compared to the other online counseling degrees it is the best value with the most prestige. As with any classes (online or in person) there are very intelligent people and some that you wonder why they are there. This program is really what you make of it.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

I believe the counseling is a very important job to many people for their heart. Through this program, I am desiring to be a counselor more more. I'd like to graduate this program and to be a good counselor in order for helping people.

I am currently in the first year of my master degree online so i can rate the campus life but concerning enrollelment, and first classes i had a lot of support from the advisor. She called to check on status and answered every one of my questions. so far it is a good school especially for those that can't attend campus for different reasons.

4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

The beauty of being apart of the Grand Canyon University Master's of Public Health online program is that I can go to school during the time that I have available and still be able to work. The coursework for each class is intense but manageable. All of the professors are helpful and respond right away, which is a big plus since I am not at campus to talk with them in person. A down side is that you do lose the personable feel that you get from a regular classroom, but Grand Canyon University works hard to combat that issue by requiring discussion questions and responses among the students as part of their curriculum. Overall I think this is a wonderful graduate program especially for individuals who are already working, have families, or those who cannot participate in a traditional master's program.
