Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

My degree program is very approachable. I feel listened to and heard when I have concerns or need clarity. I feel challenged enough in my work load but do not feel overwhelmed by it. I am learning and enjoying what I learn with support from faculty and peers.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I am an online student, very engaged in my program, Autism Spectrum Disorders. The program challenges me to become better in my chosen field of study. I would certainly recommend Grand Canyon University to anyone. Some of the pros are the personal phone calls received to inform, remind and guide students, and the timely responses received from professors concerning assignments, grades and general questions. I have not yet experienced any real cons except maybe not having the luxury of visiting campus and seeing the people I share and learn with everyday.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I graduated with my Bachelor Degree from an online school and enjoyed it. However, this online experience with Grand Canyon University Online has been the BEST! I have a ton of support, access to advisors, faculty and staff that are easily accessible and I am learning a lot.

I am really enjoying my online experience with GCU. I like how the advisors, and professors communicate with you personally. I like how simple the program is to follow online with the postings and assignment due dates.
