Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2019

I obtained my Undergrad degree at Grand Canyon University and I am currently studying for my Masters of science in Professional Counseling. I think the school has a great network and use of technology. Their academic advisors arent always prompt, therefore you struggle a little bit to get the information you need, bu the school overall is a great school !

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

My graduate program is quite eye opening and can greatly help me advance my career. It has also molded me in search a way that I have a new perspective on life. I wouldn't say there are any cons to the program save for financial constraints.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

This is a great school, I feel they can do more for online students when is comes to career services. Yes, they do offer a job forum or resume review. I feel if they offered job fairs or externships for their online students this would benefit them with getting a job in their field of study,

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

I had an excellent experience with my graduate program. The staff was experienced in their fields, knowledgable about the class material and helpful with questions and concerns. As an online student this was a great experience and even pushed me to continue with my doctoral degree. I have nothing negative to say about Grand Canyon University.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

So far solid coursework very related to the field. Demanding but not impossible. Does require a significant commitment and must be ready to write at graduate/publishing level.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

I live in a rural area where not many students go on to graduate school. Having the opportunity to do what others have not made me extremely grateful. Taking online courses was the only way that I was able to take advantage of a higher education, the expense with a family was the biggest reason that I did not go before. Receiving scholarship and grant money made my dream achievable.

Great program with high quality classes. I had some minor difficulty with information on the front end of the program but once the program started I had no troubles. The professors are top notch and very approachable.
